Regional Cross Country Meet, Band Honors, and This Week

Congratulations to the Bulldogs and Lady Bulldogs cross country teams on both earning Regional Championships this past Saturday in Grand Prairie!! Both teams now qualify to compete at the State Cross Country Meet in Round Rock on November 12!

The girls were led by Chanda Westbrook who placed first overall on the girls side. The Lady Bulldogs only had 41 points at the Regional Meet. The second place team had 121.

The boys were led by Ericsen Gudjohnsen who placed 2nd overall in the meet.

The girls ran at 1:30 and the boys followed at 2:00. It was quite warm for a regional meet, but both our boys and girls ran extremely well.

Congratulations to the athletes and coaches Josh Sypert and Kenneth Henderson for the great performance on Saturday. Also, a special thank you to all the parents, friends, and other fans for your support Saturday and throughout this season.
