Elkhart Elks

Elkhart's dugout watches into the infield during the battle against the Grapeland Sandies. 

The Texas University Interscholastic League announced Thursday the extension of the suspension of all UIL activities.

At this time, the earliest games and contests may resume is Monday, May 4th, further bringing into doubt if Anderson County seniors will play their respective sports again.

There's still hope from many high school athletes that they will be able to eventually resume competition, but the reality is that it may not happen.

That would mean that seniors would never get the opportunity to compete at the high school level again, basically having their careers ended for them prematurely.

However, that shouldn't mean the local coverage around these athletes should stop. So we'll do our job to ensure they're accomplishes don't go unrecognized.

If you have a story idea, send it our way to sports@palestineherald.com.

For now, we want to get to know those senior athletes who participate in spring sports. We want their families to be able to look at the paper and see their favorite high school student’s name and photo.

If you are an Anderson County senior who participates in a spring sport, please take a moment to fill out the following questionnaire and sending it along with a photo of yourself to sports@palestineherald.com.
