Senior Night, Football, State Cross Country Meet, and This Week

Last Friday, the seniors that were involved in football, volleyball, cheerleading, and band were recognized prior to the start of the football game. A video of the ceremony will be posted to the district’s YouTube page later today. I want to thank all the seniors for their hard work, dedication, and leadership.

The Eustace Bulldogs varsity football team showed what Pride, Poise, Discipline, and Class was all about Friday night. Down going into the second half, the Bulldogs never gave up and fought back to have a chance to win the game. Although they fell a little short on the scoreboard, they did not in determination and effort. They played with Bulldog Pride!

To say that conditions were absolutely miserable in Round Rock this past Saturday would be a tremendous understatement. The temperature was in the mid-fifties, it was raining, and the wind was blowing; however, in cross country, these conditions are just part of the sport. Both our boys and girls teams did an outstanding job in these conditions. Both teams placed 3rd overall in the state!! Our girls were led by Chanda Westbrook, who finished 5th overall. Skye Burns was 25th overall. Skye was followed by Chloe Moore, Cara Henson, Molly McAtee, Shelby White, and Reece Thorn. The Lady Bulldogs finished the state meet with an overall score of 105. Congratulations to the Lady Bulldogs – 3rd place in Conference 3A!!

The boys also finished as the 3rd best team in Conference 3A. The boys were led by Ericssen Gudjohnsen who finished 10th overall. Zane Arambula was the next Bulldog across the finish line followed by Andrew Page, Gabe Purselley, Brandon Richardson, Nick Westbrook, and Ben Warren. The boys finished with an overall score of 125.

There are some pictures posted at the end of this entry of our girls and boys receiving their medals. In addition, there will be videos posted of the start of each race and the awards ceremony later today.

One additional note: Eustace was the only team in Conference 3A that had the boys and girls team finish in the top 3 in the state! Bulldog Proud!!

I want to congratulate each of our runners for another great cross country season. A special thank you to all the parents for all the time and effort you took to make sure your son or daughter got to school early for practice and for all the early Saturday mornings you had throughout the season. A special thank you to all the fans that braved the conditions in Round Rock to come out and support the Bulldogs! Finally, a huge thank you to Coach Josh Sypert and Coach Kenneth Henderson for all their hard work and dedication throughout the year to make our cross country program the best it can be!
