COVID-19 Cancels Homecoming Game for Canyon Lake High School Hawks

The game was canceled after someone on Taylor's football team tested positive for COVID-19.

Canyon Lake High School Hawks’ Friday night homecoming game against the Taylor ISD Ducks is canceled due to COVID-19, Cory Martelli with Canyon Lake Broadcasting said today.

The game was canceled due to a positive case of COVID-19 within the Ducks’ football program.

Taylor now forfeits the game, leaving the Hawks 1-1 in district play.

However, the homecoming parade and ‘Meet the Hawks’ is still scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 13 at Canyon Lake High School, 8555 FM 32, Fischer.

Ceremonies kick off with a performance by the high school band and Emmys, followed by the homecoming parade. The homecoming court will be introduced, and Little League Football Hawks and all fall athletes from middle school and high school will be recognized.

This year’s homecoming court includes:
