Congratulations to the cross country teams on a great performance at the Fairfield meet this past Saturday! While I do not have the official results yet, I know that the boys varsity, the JV boys, and the JV girls won their divisions. The varsity girls placed second. When I get the official results, I will post those as a separate entry.
Congratulations also go out to the volleyball teams on their wins over Mildred. This was an important win for our varsity because Mildred was only a game back coming into the Friday contest. The varsity defeated Mildred 3-0 to secure a solid hold on second place in the district. The JV A team defeated Mildred 2-1 to remain undefeated in district play.
The band performed at the Cedar Creek Marching Festival this past Saturday. While they did not advance to the finals, they did have their overall best performance of the year. Videos of that performance and the performance at halftime of the Elkhart game will be posted to the district’s YouTube account later today. The band is getting ready for the UIL Marching Contest this Wednesday in Mesquite. The Mighty Bulldog Marching Band is scheduled to perform at 3:30.
The Bulldog varsity football team fell in a hard fought game against Elkhart 17-8. The Bulldogs face Kemp this Friday in Kemp.
