To say it was a recordsetting year in the world of San Saba athletics would be an understatement. The Dillos’ and Lady Dillos’ performances on the competitive stages were not only fierce, but down right dominating. The title of District Champs was earned in girls’ cross country, football, girls’ basketball, and boys’ basketball. The Cross-Country team placed 3rd at the state level, and our Football team and Lady Dillos’ basketball advanced to the Regional Finals tournament. The boys’ basketball team advanced to the state tournament for the first time in 92 years. The only thing that halted the Armadillos from claiming District titles in spring was COVID-19.

The Schemes of the Enemy

Body
An armadillo has been tearing up our yard recently. Every morning reveals new holes he has dug in search for food. Last night my wife caught him in a trap. She noticed his entry under the gate in the back yard. She set up the trap and blocked off other exit routes. Sure enough, his profile could be seen in the trap in the morning light. Upon seeing her nemesis caught, she literally was dancing around the house, singing songs about her victory!
