As a result of the University Interscholastic League’s (UIL’s) most recent realignment, the 2016 Sharyland Rattlers might want to consider changing their fight song to “On the Road Again.” Not only does their schedule have them making three trips to Laredo this season, but it also has them on the road for a total of five of their eight district games.
In addition, as a result of the newly revamped District 31-5A schedule, the Ratters will be facing two additional district opponents this season and will have two fewer non-district games to prepare them for district play.
Yes the Rattlers do have several challenges ahead of them this season but overcoming challenges is nothing new for Coach Ron Adame and the Sharyland squad. Take for example the 2014/2015 school year split of Sharyland High that many predicted would result in their eventual demise.
