Mighty Coyotes Crush #3 Ranked Sterling City 48-0

Last Friday at Coyote Field in Richland Springs was a night that was almost beyond words for this small-time local reporter. The towns population had temporarily swelled near tenfold, as a crowd of several thousand filled the stadium to see the #1 ranked, Division 2, Coyotes take on, the #3 ranked Division 1 Sterling City Eagles. Big night in small town America...Initially named, Entertainment and Sports Programing Network, now just ESPN was on hand filming a documentary about the Coyotes' dynasty. The towns first State Championship team (golf), local law enforcement officers, and an ailing young lady from Sterling City, were recognized and honored at halftime.. and the tremendous crowd's hearts were swelling as one entity, as a six year old, flawlessly sang our National Anthem ....trust me folks, there was not a soul kneeling or fists raised in defiance on this special night.

On October 10, 2016, the City of San Saba and SSISD will be blanketed by purple and white armadillos. Not the “fighting kind found with the Armadillo athletic teams,” but the volunteer kind in the first ever school and city clean-up partnership. Armadillos Get Involved is a partnership effort between San Saba ISD students and staff and the City of San Saba, Keep San Saba Beautiful and the San Saba Garden Club.
