Sterling High School’s Jaden Valencia runs toward third base on the Rangers’ new turf field this past spring. The installation of new turf fields at nearly all three Goose Creek CISD softball, baseball and football facilities was the top moment of the 2019-20 sports season. 

The top two sports moments of 2019-2020 were the ultimate dichotomy: One was about a bright and shining future and the other left the next years and decades in a state of limbo.

What the COVID-19 pandemic and the building of new turf fields at Goose Creek CISD offered was a glimpse at the potential long-term effects on local sports for years and to come and means the two were the Baytown Sun’s No. 1 and No. 2 Moments of the Year.
