Uvalde High School athletes were in action in state swimming, regional wrestling and in powerlifting this weekend. Mabel Fowler was scheduled to represent UHS in state swimming competition at Austin’s Lee and Joe Jamail Texas Swimming Center.
The Uvalde Lobos began play in the 2017 Uvalde Softball Classic with a pair of victories Thursday night at the Uvalde High School softball field. They trounced the Carrizo Springs Lady Wildcats, 19-3, and shut out the Hondo Owls 6-0.
The Uvalde Coyotes netted a 55-45 basketball victory over the Eagle Pass Winn Mavericks Tuesday.
Playing before a large Uvalde High School Seniors Night crowd in Harvey Kinchlow Gym, the Coyotes got off to an early lead and they never trailed in their final game of the 2016-17 season.
Prior to the game, seven UHS senior basketball players, including Silver Flores, Johnny Limones, Joe Martinez, Hector Almanza, Ryan Perez, Tyler Gilland, and Christian Chapoy were honored with their parents during a special ceremony.
As a preface to swimming in her last high school state swimming competition this weekend, Uvalde’s Mabel Fowler signed a letter of intent to attend Trinity University on scholarship next season.
At a gathering of about 75 family members and friends at the Southwest Texas Junior College swimming pool, the Uvalde High School senior made it official as she signed her letter of intent to attend Trinity University for next school year.
Prior to the signing ceremony, Mabel’s father, Rob Fowler, welcomed everyone in attendance, including family members, several coaches, Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District officials, and many friends.
