High School Sports in the Coachella Valley Officially Returned Friday ( Live Video)

Shadow Hills head coach, Richie DeTamble took to Twitter to share his excitement about the return of competition.

“There aren’t enough words to describe the excitement going around our program right now. Fist pumps. Huge smiles. Happy tears. Goosebumps. Time to lace ‘em up, it’s go time! Thank you @DesertSandsUSD for giving our kids some hope!”

Coach DeTamble shared these sentiments with media this week, “It’s hard to hide the excitement, from coaches to athletes to parents. Everybody’s just excited and ready to go, feeling blessed to have this opportunity to take a step forward in the right direction. Making sure all the kids are safe and do our part to open doors for other sports. I just can’t wait to hand out uniforms to these kids and get them feeling like they’re part of something again, not just part of our team, not just part of the sport, but just part of history.
Literally it as dramatic as that sounds, this is history, we are living it.”

“Based on the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and California Interscholastic Federation ( CIF), cross country competitions for Desert Sands Unified School District (DSUSD) will begin on Friday, February 12, between Shadow Hills High School and Indio High School at Indio. We will be adhering to all CDPH guidelines as we remain in the purple tier. A DSUSD schedule of cross country events will be forthcoming.”
