Excitement is building across our community as everyone is gearing up for the “Battle of the Tracks game,” the yearly match up for bragging rights as the Nogales Nobles face off against the Rowland Raiders! This year the Friday night lights will be shining even brighter on new artificial turf fields just installed at both high schools. No matter who you are rooting for, our community is invited to a great game tomorrow night, Friday, September 24 at the Nogales High School Stadium. Gates open at 6 PM, game starts at 7 PM. *For the continued safety of all, masks are encouraged to be worn.*
New Noble at the Helm
You can feel the energy radiating from the new Nogales High School Head Football Coach Gustavo Martinez and students as they practice on their new field. “What a great job our District, Principal, and Athletic Director did on the design of the new field. The colors just pop and both fields at Nogales and Rowland are just gorgeous. We are blessed to have the community’s support.” Martinez brings more than 25 years of coaching experience from Fullerton High School, where he had success leading teams to the semi-finals, finals and all star games. “We can only imagine what this Friday will be like with a packed house under the lights playing our cross town rival for the Battle of the Tracks trophy… we can’t wait,” said Martinez.
