In an effort to ensure color print for the traditional back-page full of football player mugshots/capsules, the release date for the all-area football was moved from Christmas to Saturday. That jumbled some of the other target dates.
As of Thursday morning, the latest target dates for the remaining three fall sports (boys/girls cross country and volleyball teams have already been released) are:
Boys water polo, Friday, Dec. 25
Football, Saturday, Dec. 26
Girls tennis, Tuesday, Dec. 29
Enjoy and feel free to express opinions, as I know you will.
Remember, please keep them short and to the point. Personal attacks about the players selected will not be allowed.
