High school sports get new tentative start dates


New Mexico’s cross-country, volleyball and golf scenes finally have some answers on new tentative start dates.

Cross-country activities will get underway on Feb. 15, while volleyball will start on March 1. Golf will begin on March 22, making it spring-only this season because that’s normally the time when the spring portion of the season gets rolling.

The state cross-country championships will be held March 19 and 20, while state volleyball will be held April 26-May 1. State golf will take place June 21 and 22.

“Just to hear that news is going to be something forth to look forward to… I think the kids will be excited to have something,” Kirtland Central cross-country coach Lenny Esson said.

Dusty Young, the associate director for the New Mexico Activities Association, said the latest calendar update isn’t optimal, but the NMAA wanted to make it work for those three sports.
