Due to the recent spike of Corona Virus cases in our area and the State, we are implementing some new strategies to do what we can to keep our student-athletes safe. We are asking that if you are playing on a travel/select team, summer league team, go to any camps (sport or non-sport), or attend any mass gathering, do not come to summer strength and conditioning or sport-specific practice for 7 days after attending one of the above activities. We are not saying to not do these things. We as coaches appreciate our athletes doing extra things in the summer to make themselves better. This is a measure simply aimed at keeping our athletes safe and limiting their exposure to others who might come into contact with the Corona Virus. Missing strength and conditioning due to you participating in any of the above-mentioned activities will not be held against you. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact Coach Welch Or any other Coach on staff.

Short Introduction Bio Plains Secondary would like to welcome Adam Crawford to our staff. He will be teaching biology, A&P and environmental science in the fall of 2020-2021. Welcome, Adam!!! My name is Adam Crawford, I am originally from Dallas Texas but moved to Lubbock to attend South Plains College, where I earned my associate degree in biology while tutoring Biology 1 & 2 for two years. After I graduated South Plains College, I began attending Texas Tech University where I earned my bachelor’s in biology with a minor in chemistry while working in an organic chemistry Lab in which I worked mainly with thermal expansion in crystals. My passions in life revolve around science, music, and film and are what I spend most of my free time studying and enjoying. I am so excited to have the opportunity to join Plains I.S.D and the Plains community to share my passion for the natural world!
