Football, Mindset, FFA, and This Week

by Coy Holcombe.  

The Bulldog football season came to an end Friday night in the bi-district game against Farmersville. The final score was 14-17. This was just a good, hard-fought, football playoff game. I want to extend congratulations to Doug Wendel and all the coaching staff, the players, parents, and fans for another exciting football season. This year marks the second consecutive year that the Bulldogs have made the playoffs. A special thank you goes to all the seniors for their hard work and dedication this year. Finally, thanks to the Mighty Bulldog Marching Band and the varsity cheerleaders for all their support during this football season. 

On a different note, congratulations to the Intermediate School Mindset Team for advancing to the next round of competition. The Mindset team will be competing again in January. Great job staff and students!

Also, congratulations to the Eustace FFA team on their showing at the Leadership and Development Events held last Friday.
