The Eustace Bulldogs' football season came to an end last night. The Bulldogs fell to the Pottsboro Cardinals 37-13 in the bi-district championship game. This marks the third consecutive year that the Bulldogs have advanced to the playoffs.
I want to thank Doug Wendel and all of the other coaches for their hard work and dedication. I also want to thank all the parents, friends and other fans that have followed and supported the Bulldogs this year. Most of all, I want to thank all the players for putting in long hours of practice (since August 2) and the way they represented EISD. Throughout the year, the Bulldogs played with pride and integrity.
Last night also marked the end of the marching band season. I want to thank directors Todd Felty and Jim Taylor for a great marching season. A special thank you goes to the young men and young ladies in the marching band. They have been practicing since August 2, also.
Finally, I want to say thanks to Sandy Sowers and the EHS cheerleaders for all the hard work support given to the fall sports. While the football games allowed the cheerleaders to really showcase their talents, they were also involved with volleyball and cross country.
A reminder that we will be having a send off parade for the boys cross country team today at 9:00. The Bulldogs will compete in the state cross country meet in Round Rock tomorrow. The Bulldogs will run at 1:40.
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
