Special to the Drum
Football fans preparing for a college-style 1 p.m. kickoff for Ignacio’s 2021 opener Saturday, Aug. 28, versus non-conference Carbondale Roaring Fork will have to adjust closer to breakfast their estimated IHS Field arrival times.
Once even reported to get underway at 2 p.m., the Bobcats (3-2 overall in Fall ’20) and Rams (0-6 in Spring ’21) will now begin at 11 a.m. Second on IHS’ slate, the Sept. 3 trip to 3A Newcomb, N.M., is unchanged and still a 7 p.m. go.
Also, IHS Volleyball will begin the fall on schedule, traveling Fri., Aug. 27, to Ridgway. Junior-varsity play is set to start at 4 p.m., with varsity action to follow. The Volleycats will then visit Mancos on the 31st, for a C-JV-V day starting at 4.
V’CATS ADD OPPONENTS
Ignacio’s 2021 volleyball schedule has changed somewhat. The team’s slated Oct. 2 home matches versus Nucla have now been moved to Oct. 9, in order for the ’Cats (6-7 overall in Spring ’21) to gain a non-league varsity triangular on the 2nd versus 1A Creede (3-5 in Spring ’21) and 2A Crested Butte (2-12) beginning at 11 a.m.
Coincidentally, CBCS was to have opened the Fall ’21 season Aug. 19 at home versus Creede, but no scores had been reported as of press time—if the match was indeed played as scheduled.
Also, IHS’ slated 10/21 date with 3A Pagosa Springs, initially to be contested away, will now be held inside IHS Gymnasium, with a C-JV-V lineup of matches beginning at 4 p.m.
