It’s been almost an entire year since a non-virtual athletic event took place in the state of New Mexico at the conclusion of the 2020 high school basketball tournament. On Feb. 27 cross country meets began and this week volleyball, football and soccer all start.
I’ve been waiting for this week to come and am excited to once again bring you all the local sports coverage in Eddy County possible. I know the last year has been difficult for everyone and I hope this will help with a return to normalcy.
This shortened season will require a different approach than other years. Most of the games these teams have will take place this month with the postseason games in early April. With 19 Carlsbad contests taking place at home (six boys soccer, six volleyball, four girls soccer and two football games) the away game coverage will be limited.
Since the New Mexico Activities Association will not allow fans to attend games, the Current-Argus will work to publish timely updates. Fans can also follow me on Twitter at @Caveman_Masher for live updates or visit the Current-Argus Sports Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/CCASports.
Here is a look at the coverage Carlsbad Caveman and Loving Falcon fans can find at www.currentargus.com/sports and in the print edition of the Current-Argus.
Sports on Tap will provide the weekly schedule of games, published in each Sunday edition and via the website weekly.
Photos and a recap of covered sporting events will be shared online, and our loyal online subscribers can access in depth coverage of the game, analysis and other sports reporting via the website.
Subscribers to the print edition of the Current-Argus can find a Senior Spotlight – Q&As with senior athletes- in Wednesday editions and score roundups and Top Performers in Sunday editions.
Thank you for your readership.
