The Sanderson Eagles are gearing up for their second season under head coach David Donnell.
The six-man squad narrowly missed the playoffs last year and hope to redeem themselves after falling short. The Eagles are part of District 5-1A alongside Buena Vista, Grandfalls-Royalty and Sierra Blanca. They went 1-3 in district play last season.
Donnell said one of the team’s main focuses this season is limiting mistakes. He said lack of focus cost the Eagles a few games last season. And he’s hoping some returners can help limit those mistakes.
“We lost three seniors and we’re going to miss them but we have four seniors in this class that are really good leaders and we have an excellent freshmen class coming up,” he said.
