All-district accolades

Canyon seniors Kirstyn Drum (left) and Kirsten Zaruba (right), seen above trying to steal the ball from Smithson Valley’s Akina McGarity, each took home all-district honors from 26-6A this season.

The Cougarettes once again traversed an arduous path this season within District 26-6A and finished a whisker shy of notching their second consecutive trip to the Class 6A postseason.

Canyon’s journey during the 2019-20 campaign featured a 10-3 start to the season and a clean sweep of rival New Braunfels in 26-6A competition. The Cougarettes won the first matchup 58-44 at home on Jan. 3 and then claimed a 66-53 triumph on the road on Jan. 28.
