Let us never forget how precious life can be. A number of our coaches and high school athletes were recently present for an unfortunate event that took a student's life from this earth. Many of our JV football players and Coaches were present for the moment and it still sets with many of them today. Over the next few weeks, please continue to pray for the well being of our Sundown families, as well as the family of the late Yahir Cancino, his family, and the Dalhart Community and School. Throughout this past week, many of the families from both communities have joined forces in prayer, and have united through the love of losing a loved one. Candlelight vigils have been held in Dalhart, the Sundown community gathered for an hour of prayer at the football field on Friday evening, Sundown High School students visited Yahir in the hospital the night before he passed, youth groups gathered in prayer on Sunday night in both communities to life one another up during these tough times. Unfortunately for both communities, death has become such a prevalent part of our lives, that we have been able to truly sympathize and empathize for one another during the loss of a loved one. However, the light that shines through so many of our students and community members during these times continues to raise the bar for our beloved Sundown! We are grateful for the support that has been shown within our community for one another, as well as the support that is being shared from one community to another. Tonight, we are grateful to our neighbors from Dalhart and the kind gesture of sending us flowers during their tragedy. We thank them from the bottom of our hearts! We are not alone in this fight called life! Live life to the fullest, and continue to lift one another up and love one another. #WeHaveSundownHeart #LoveOthers

Friday Night Game Cancelled. Pep-Rally also Cancelled. Mini cheer will be rescheduled for our next pep-rally. In light of the events from the JV football game last night in Dimmitt between Sundown and Dalhart, we have cancelled the Varsity game that was to be held this evening. Yahir Cancino, a Dalhart JV football player, was sent to the hospital during the game and is in need of prayers, love and support. The community of Sundown lifts up our neighbors from Dalhart at this time.

Very scary moment in Dalhart. With 6:21 left in the 4th a sophomore from Dalhart was down for a while and ultimately taken by ambulance. The game was called at that point and players and coaches from Dalhart and Sundown met at midfield to lift him up in prayer. Please keep the young man from Dalhart in your thoughts and prayers tonight. Sundown certainly wishes a full recovery and healing for him.

Safety First! Sundown ISD participated in a fire drill this morning and managed to return inside right before it started to sprinkle! It rattled some of the little guys, but no tears were shed! Great work Roughnecks!
