  3. Coach’s report
    1. Due to only 1 sub varsity team for Vernon, a game for the JV Black was secured in Sanger, Tx on Thursday at 5pm. JV Orange will play in Vernon at 5pm on Thursday.  The additional travel is unfortunate, but the goal is playing time to make our athletes better.   It is not ideal and will be avoided if possible.   But with smaller schools, having 2 sub varsity teams is difficult to find.  As we get in to district, we are one of the smaller schools so the schedule should stabilize.
    2. Varsity will be at home on Friday at 7pm against Vernon for our Homecoming game.
  4. Next booster club meeting- September 26, 2022, at 6:30pm.
  5. Adjourned at 7:10pm.
