Congratulations to the varsity track teams for a great performance last night at the Crandall Pirate Relays. The Varsity Girls team had a tremendous showing, in a very competitive meet with large 3A and 4A schools competing. Eustace was the only 2A school in attendance, but our girls managed to win the meet by over 30 points.
Additionally, Jaci Aiken and the Varsity 4 x 400 Relay qualified for the Texas Relays in Austin. This is a huge accomplishment for these girls. This is a collegiate track meet at the University of Texas that the best runners and throwers from across the state will be competing in.
The Varsity Boys team finished runner-up to Crandall. A highlight was Evan Arambula winning gold in the 800 m, and 1600 m runs, in a convincing performance. He was also the anchor leg of the 4 x 400 m relay.
The District track meet will be held here at Eustace with Prelims on Monday April 9th and Finals Wednesday April 11th.
If I have to inform you of just how well things are going at EHS you must have been out of the country. Football, volleyball, and cross country have been the talk of the town. Football with a 7 & 0 record is bidding for the District Championship for the 1st time in over a decade. Volleyball has only 1 loss in district and is looking to extend their streak of post season play. Cross Country boys have continued their dominance while the girls have put together their best team in years.
It’s been a great Fall for EHS and we’re looking to ride this wave throughout the entire year. Students are taking care of business in the classroom as well with the fewest failures we have seen in the first six weeks and a solid attendance rate.
I want to thank everyone involved for making last night’s regional qualifiers meet a huge success! With 30 teams from all over East Texas and North Texas, spectators got to see some of the top track talent in the state. Special thanks go to our maintenance staff for getting the facilities ready, to the Booster Club for running the concession stand, and to our coaches for organizing and running the meet. Although I do not have the official results yet, the Bulldogs and Lady Bulldogs placed in the top six in many events.
The JV and varsity baseball teams will be hosting Scurry-Rosser today. The JV game is set to start at 4:30.
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
