Richland Springs again hosted a One Act Play clinic critiqued by Royal Brantley. Eight schools attended the OAP clinic in hopes that their students will learn from the positive criticism and win state with their respective plays. Thanks to all who donated monies and/or food for the hospitality room, or just their time and talent.
The Richland Springs Coyotes finished the season at 20-2. The Coyotes met a tough Tilden team at the area playoffs. Tilden had two posts who were 6’4’ and 6’5’and they dominated the rebounds. Thanks to Coach Shawn Rogers and the varsity boys for a memorable and exciting basketball season.
