San Marcos CISD wants public input before it begins seeking applicants to fill the district athletic director position.
In stark contrast to a San Marcos CISD trustees meeting earlier this month that packed the room to discuss the fate of San Marcos High School football coach Steve Van Nest, only two citizens appeared at a school district meeting Tuesday night to discuss criteria for hiring a new superintendent.
Residents and parents registered differences of opinion to the San Marcos CISD trustees last week as to whether Steve Van Nest should be retained as the head football coach at San Marcos High School. The Rattlers, 5-22 in the last three years, face the possibility of an 0-10 season.
The San Marcos Rattlers were better Friday night, but still far short of Hays in a 34-17 loss at Bob Shelton Stadium. The Rattlers fell behind early and never rallied. Next week, the 0-2 Rattlers face Bastop and quarterback Josiah Monroe.
The opening of the high school football season did not go well for the San Marcos Rattlers, who made five turnovers and were unable to defend against an experienced passing game in their 42-0 loss to Marble Falls Friday night at Bobcat Stadium.
A one-time staple of the Hays County athletic scene is coming back for a two-year engagement. The football teams from San Marcos and Hays High Schools will play each other this fall and during the fall of 2011, according to the coaches for both programs.
The football teams at San Marcos High School and San Marcos Baptist Academy will try to close out their seasons with wins at home Friday night, while the Wimberley Texans would win their district with a victory at Fredericksburg.
Eliminated from high school football playoff contention, the San Marcos Rattlers encounter the final two weeks of the season as two more chances to win.
Another close game went against the San Marcos Rattlers Friday night, dropping them from the high school football playoff race. The Rattlers fell, 28-21, to Schertz Clemens at Bobcat Stadium.
In a sense, the playoffs begin Friday night for the San Marcos Rattlers, who face Schertz Clemens at Bobcat Stadium. As long as the Rattlers keep winning, they’ll keep playing.
