This past week had EISD hosting the Bulldog Relays and the Eustace Baseball Tournament. At the track meet, the Bulldogs and Lady Bulldogs placed first in all four divisions! There was a total of 9 teams at the meet and over 600 entrants in the various events. We were able to get all the field events and running events completed before the 10:00 deadline for starting events. A special thank you to all the people that made this possible! There are many people working behind the scenes to get events set up, to determine the top 6 finishers in each event, to get the correct medals to schools, and to keep track of the overall points. There are also the people that you see on the track making sure contestants are in the proper lane, that they clearly understand the directions, that make sure the hurdles are set properly, that starting blocks are available for all contestants, and that the races are started in a timely manner. Thank you to everyone who helped!!
A little to the west of the track, the Bulldog Baseball Tournament was also taking place. The tournament started on Thursday and concluded Saturday. The Bulldogs placed 2nd in the tournament! Again, a lot of people worked to make sure that the tournament ran smoothly. Thank you to everyone who helped!
