Uvalde High School was scheduled to host girls’ and boys’ golf tournaments, but they have been canceled.
Tuesday, the UHS Invitational girls tournament was to be staged at Uvalde Memorial Golf Course, while the UHS Invitational boys tourney was set for tomorrow and Saturday.
Because of the University Interscholastic League’s suspension of sports events because of the COVID-19 health threat, both UHS tournaments were canceled.
There are no plans to reschedule either tourney.
The long-range status of the District 28-5A golf tournaments remains to be seen.
District 28-5A girls’ tourney was scheduled next Monday and Tuesday, but play in the event has been suspended. It is not known, if and when, the event will be rescheduled.
The District 28-5A boys’ tournament is set for March 30-31 and could be played if the UIL lifts its current ban on events.
