There’s a very important Cavegirl soccer game this Tuesday. The Carlsbad Cavegirls (16-1) will host Clovis (12-2-1). Clovis is the only team to have beaten the Cavegirls in the past year- they won a 2-1 overtime match on Sept. 28. The varsity game is at 6 p.m. on Oct. 12 and we hope you’ll be able to make it. The Cavegirls beat Hobbs, 4-1, on Oct. 5. The Cavegirls are the defending state champions, and they are looking to avenge the Sept. 28 game.
The Carlsbad Cavemen soccer team plays at Clovis on Oct. 12. The Cavemen are coming off of a 3-0 loss to Hobbs on Oct. 5
The Cavegirl varsity volleyball team also hosts Clovis on Tuesday. Their game is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. The Cavegirl are coming off of a loss to Goddard.
The Carlsbad Cavemen varsity football team fell to Centennial last Friday, 35-0. According to their schedule, the Cavemen will next play Organ Mountains on Oct. 22. Friday’s football game was a very special one – there were four new members put into the school’s athletics hall of fame.
Congratulations to Hall of Fame inductees Terrance Orgain, George Wilson Knapp, Veronica Gonzales and John Tigert, who were placed in the Carlsbad Athletics Hall of Fame last Friday. These are four very well deserving candidates. Thank you to Current Argus reporter Mike Smith for his great coverage of these inductions. John Tigert is also a member of the National High School Coaches Hall of Fame.
Thank you to Stranded for a great concert this past Saturday at the Water Park Gazebo. The concert was dedicated to the memory of Brandon Chandler, who has helped support our concert series. Roswell-based Groupo Maldad will be performing next Saturday from 7-9 p.m. We also had a great turnout at the Halageuno Arts Park Friday for a movie- hosted by the Carlsbad Museum and Creative Carlsbad.
Did you know that you can now virtually tour the Carlsbad Museum? We certainly hope you’ll visit us in person, but this is a great option for former Carlsbad residents who now live out of town, especially if you want to visit the Hall of Fame. Go to https://kuula.co/profile/Carlsbad_Museum for a chance to see several recent and ongoing exhibits.
If you are looking for more arts and culture around town, the Carlsbad Community Theater will showcase “Dearly Beloved” Oct. 29, 30 and 31 and Nov. 5, 6 and 7. Tickets are $15 for adults and $8 for students. For more information, please visit the theater’s Facebook page.
