The Uvalde Coyotes have an open date in their 2015 football schedule this week, but that does not mean that the Uvaldeans have not been working hard in practice. “Without a game of Friday, our workout schedule has been a little different this week,” said Uvalde High School
Uvalde High School placed two of the top finishers in the varsity girls division of the North East ISD Invitational crosscountry meet on Sept. 5 at San Antonio. Mabel Fowler took top honors. She finished the race in a time of 18 minutes and 50 seconds.

The Uvalde Lobos battled the Corpus Christi Veterans Memorial Lady Eagles right down to the wire before losing a 20-25, 25-23, 25-19 decision in the championship match of the 2015 Hub City Volleyfest tournament at Alice last Saturday. “It was an awesome performance by our girls. They fought hard against a really good Veterans Memorial volleyball team,” said Uvalde High School head volleyball coach Jessica Campbell. “I think we surprised the Veterans Memorial team. They are a large, new Corpus Christi High School and all of their girls play club ball. I think they thought they were going to breeze right past us, but our girls put up one whale of a battle against them.
