High School Boys Basketball: San Marcos survives late-game rally, defeats Manor

San Marcos could only watch hoping to keep its 56-53 lead intact as Manor junior guard Justin Harris travelled to the charity stripe for three free throws with under one second remaining in Tuesday’s game.

Harris swished the first free throw – 56-54. The second attempt, however, was unsuccessful. Harris converted the final free throw but San Marcos secured a 56-55 win over the Mustangs inside the ‘Snake Pit.’

Outdoors: From duck hunting to snipe hunting season

Most of us have heard of a snipe hunt.  Some of us, especially as an initiation into the Boy Scouts or college fraternity, have been on one. Usually, you are given a paper bag and a whistle and then taken out into the woods at night.  You are told to blow the whistle and when a snipe responds to the whistle you capture him in the bag. It can be eerie and scary. Usually, some hidden heckler is making weird sounds.

High School Boys Soccer: Rattlers drop home, district opener to Akins

San Marcos dropped its district and home opener Tuesday night against Akins, 2-0.

The Rattlers’ first home contest came after a near month-long road trip. Akins welcomed San Marcos back to Rattler Stadium with a high-pressure defense that made it difficult for the Rattlers to string two passes together.

Luigi Martinez got things going for the Eagles with just eight minutes left in the first half on a ball that left Rattler goalkeeper Dominic Flores in an awkward position.

San Marcos seniors Austin Castillo, Colby Vidrine and Ramsey Tijerina signed to play college football during National Signing Day on Wednesday. 

Castillo is headed to Texas Lutheran, Tijerina will play for Austin College and Vidrine flipped to Midwestern State after previously being committed to Texas A&M-Commerce. 

Castillo said it was a relief to end the recruiting process and sign with the Bulldogs.

“Financially, it was the best decision for me and being close to home my family can see me play,” Castillo said.
