On Friday,Sep 16, 2022 the Cougars’ Varsity Football team took on the Silverado Skyhawks. The Cougars took a tough loss this game with the final score being 0-43. 

“We need to be more focused at practice,” said senior Isaiah Bottley (#3). “We need to give it 100% at everything we do.” 

 Although this was a challenging home game for the Cougars, there were some festivities that occurred during this game and at half-time. On the sidelines, the mini Cougarettes joined the Cougarettes to hype up the student section dressed in cowboy attire. During half-time teams such as women’s swimming, women’s soccer, and golf were brought onto the field to be recognized for being named 2022 state champion teams. 

Lineman, Silas Sagote (#1) made several tackles during this game, as did Amosa Mayberry (#7). Quarterback Dante Salour (#12) had quick decision-making during this game. 

“I think that the game could have gone better if we executed on both sides of the ball.” said senior Silas Sagote (#1) “I feel that as a team we have a lot of potential and are able to improve.”

In the first set, Coronado easily dominated the round, with the score being 25-16. The second set, though, took much longer, as Durango seemed to gain rigor, fighting back. In the end, Coronado beat them out with a score of 28-26. Finally, for the third set, the girls played fiercely to ensure their win, taking home the competition with a score of 25-15. Despite their excellent performance, there is always room for improvement.
