After a year of empty gymnasiums and vacant bleachers, Taos High School is finally ready to resume play. On Monday (March 8), the THS Athletic Department released schedules for Varsity and JV Football, Volleyball, Cross Country, and Boys and Girls Soccer.
Though the news came as a welcome surprise to local athletes and their supporters, the THS Athletic Department did state that there are rules to the resumption of play and asked for the community's help in adhering to those rules.
"No parking to watch games in the parking lots, and no parking on main streets such as Gusdorf or Salazar," said Athletic Director Mae A. LaBelle in an email. "We ask for everyone's cooperation so that sports may continue as a privilege for our athletes. Thank You!"
The Governor recently announced a return to in-person learning, and an announcement by the NMPED that fans would once again be able to attend games quickly followed. According to the NMPED, the return of fans to high school sporting events will be based on each county's color within New Mexico's COVID color system.
Though Taos County's COVID restrictions status can fluctuate, THS is proceeding as if sports will happen and fans will be there.
LaBelle said tickets are available at GO FAN and Taoseños can even stream the games through the NFHS website.
THS is also accepting donations and encouraging the purchase of Taos Tiger COVID Packages for $150, all through GO FAN.
