Wimberley’s Gage Weaver named boys soccer player of the week

With the first ice storm of the season hitting the Austin area, virtually every school district in central Texas has postponed football games this week.

Most coaches have postponed games from Tuesday to Thursday after juggling their schedules with stadium availability. In particular, the Austin School District has been forced into a creative schedule since all individual high schools except Anderson have no playable fields and must share facilities with the House Park District, Nelson Field , the Burger Center Athletic Complex and the Noack Athletic Complex. .
