The future workforce in Texas will need to be workready. Many seniors are currently making plans for college or work after graduation.

Here is some food for thought. Studies show that foregoing postsecondary training and education can mean a tremendous loss of income over a lifetime. A student who earns an associate degree, for example, will earn an average of $340,000 more over a working lifetime than someone with just a high school diploma — and nearly $600,000 more than a worker with no diploma.

Four years of college is not for everyone. More parents and students need to be aware of all postsecondary educational options, including career and technical education (CTE), and the availability of financial assistance.

PAL Patrol goes to Austin!

Article Image Alt Text

Twenty-two San Saba High School high school PALs attended state conference in Austin Friday and Saturday, January 11-12th. Our students presented two workshops.

The first was one called “Getting to Know Each Other Through Ice Breakers and Games.” This workshop was so popular that the room could barely hold all the students who came. Our second workshop was entitled, “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” and got its inspiration from the children’s show "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood." A skit was performed showing the interaction between Mister Rogers and his friend the police officer (played by Erik Argote and Sean O’Keefe).

Uniform Change: Superb Transition

It wasn’t a win, December 20th, but it was close enough for San Saba basketball boys and their coaches to break for the holidays with their heads high.

With a bunch six days removed from their 15th football game of the season, the Armadillos rallied from a 32-15 deficit early in the third quarter to a 41-38 loss to visiting Llano. A three-point field goal attempt, with a couple of seconds left, did not fall to end the need of overtime.

“It’s only a comeback if you win,” said Mark Kyle, in his first year as San Saba head coach. He, too, had come off outside duties as the secondary coach. “It was a good effort by the kids,” he acknowledged, and his mood was upbeat, considering it was moments after a defeat.

The Vision: Contend for Titles—Again

“It was solid,” was the summation of head coach Alicia Cummings after the Lady Armadillos—ranked sixth in the state in Class 2A—walloped Llano, 53-16, December 18th.

“Took us awhile to get into a rhythm,” she added, in reference to a box-and-one defense by the Lady Jackets, which, “got us out of sync.” Note: the “box” is the zone, while the “one” from Llano hangs out with San Saba’s Linzey Maxcey.

“I had confidence in my team,” said Maxcey. “We’re not a one-woman team; we’re a 10-player team. We can get the job done no matter what they do.”

Richland Springs boys basketball wins Rochelle Tournament, upsets 2A Junction

Six days after walking off the gridiron for the final time in 2018 the Richland Springs Coyotes found themselves in unfamiliar territory, they were trailing. Down 7 late in the first quarter to Lingleville the Coyotes, with merely 2 days of practice under their belt, went to work. Lead in scoring by Sophomore Matthew Rigdon (35) and defensive stops by Senior Cameron Parham, the Coyotes ended the next three quarters on a 43-21 run to win 62-37.

The Coyotes never seemed to cool off in the coming days as the average of margin of victory exceeded 35 points while defeating Rochelle, Lometa, and Brookesmith. Multiple double-digit rebound games from Junior Wade Appleton and scoring outbursts of 32 by Freshman Chase Rigdon and 31 from Matthew Rigdon saw that the Coyotes would play in the tournament final.
