High school sports to return?

Members of the Del Rio High Queens softball team have a short conference in the pitcher’s circle prior to the start of an inning during a game played at the Queens Softball Field in March. The game between Del Rio and Laredo LBJ was the last UIL contest to be held in Del Rio prior to the suspension and eventual cancellation of UIL activities for the 2019-20 season, but Monday’s announcement by Texas Governor Greg Abbott regarding the return of sports in Texas could soon lead to a resumption of UIL activities this summer.

While school sports remain on the bench, the latest announcement by Texas Governor Greg Abbott has many people anxious for the return of organized sports.

Monday afternoon, Abbott announced a timeline for the next phase of openings in the state of Texas as part of a planned recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
