Gunter football, volleyball schedules change due to Blue Ridge issues


The latest Texoma football team to be awarded a forfeit victory due to positive COVID-19 tests within an opponent’s school is the Gunter Tigers, who found out on Sunday that Blue Ridge would be unable to play this coming Friday night after the school district moved to remote learning at all levels.

The Blue Ridge ISD announced: “In the interest of our students’ and staff’s health and in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19, we will be moving all BRHS and BRMS students to remote learning Monday, October 19th-Friday, October 23rd. These campuses will resume normal operations on Monday, October 26th. During this time, all areas of both campuses will be cleaned and sanitized.”

Gunter is looking to find another opponent for Friday because it had the bye in District 8-3A (II) this past week. Tigers head coach Jake Fieszel said it would depend on who else is looking for games this week and Gunter might end up going three weeks between games.

“We want to be smart about it,” Fieszel said.

The forfeit is at the maximum 15 points, according to the district executive committee rules, if it is needed to determine tie-breakers.
