Selma, Kingsburg sports schedules finalized

  • 0
CENTRAL VALLEY — The 2020 football season at Selma and Kingsburg High Schools are right around the corner. Schedules were finalized last week with the season beginning on March 19.
With the Thursday court case, sports such as basketball and wrestling are allowed but decisions on testing have to be made.
Both the Bears and Vikings ended up with new opponents for the 2020 football season debut. Kingsburg will host Central Valley Christian while Selma will entertain Madera in the first game played in the refurbished Staley Stadium. Selma travels to Central East Friday for a 6:30 p.m. scrimmage against one of the top teams in the Central Section.
Selma will enforce the Fresno County directive that only four fans from the immediate family household  be allowed to attend the game. In baseball and softball, fans will be limited to two that live in the immediate family.
“We are still discussing the details regarding the attendance,” said Kingsburg High School Athletic Director Scott Hodges.
It will be the first Selma High home football game since Oct. 19, 2018 when lightning caused officials to call the game at halftime with the Cavaliers leading 45-7. It will be the first home soccer match since the 2017-18 season.
All 14 games in Selma’s 11-3 Central Section Division 4 championship season were on the road. Four of the five games this season are scheduled at home. Compare the round trip mileage from last year and you get 762-12.
There will be no junior varsity football or soccer. “This is a Central Sequoia League decision so we don’t compromise any or all of the spring sports that were canceled last March,” said Selma High School Athletic Director Randy Esraelian.
Tournaments will not be held because not more than two teams are not allowed on the same field. The Selma Greater Kiwanis Easter Tournament was canceled for the second straight year.
Teams in the 2021 tournament field include Liberty (Madera), Chavez, McLane, Sequoia (Redwood City), Sierra Pacific, Dos Palos, Immanuel, Kerman, Madera South, Yosemite, Wasco, Coalinga and El Capitan (Merced).
The varsity schedules for Kingsburg and Selma baseball (soccer, boys and girls golf, Selma is not fielding a team) soccer and softball follow:
