Talk about a whirlwind of a season for the Waldron Sr High Bulldogs. From breaking records to earning championships, the Bulldogs have spent the 2019-2020 basketball season doing it all. Waldron will be closing shop on their season after their February 27 Regional match-up against the Clinton Yellowjackets in which the Bulldogs took a 70-60 loss. Payton Brown led the team with 26 points followed by Jacob Avila and Gada Wagner with 16 points apiece, Braden Williams with two, and Mason Ford finished with five defensive rebounds.
The Bulldogs finish the year with a 24-7 total play record, 12-2 in conference, and racked up a grand total of 2079 points. Coach Joshua Brown gives us his last Bulldogs report of the year. “We had a great season and our players, coaches, and community have a lot to be proud of. We set a school record for wins in a season with 23 in the 2018-19 season and then exceeded that this year with 24 wins. Payton Brown broke the school record this year for points in a game with 60 in December. I’m sure that he also broke the record for points in a season and career.”
“I really like this group of guys and we are going to miss our seniors.” Saying goodbye will be Mason Ford, Jacob Avila, Payton Brown, Ruben Valdez, and Kennedy Rice. “They played their hearts out night in and night out. We were the one seed in the conference tournament and won a conference championship for the first time in school history (I think) as I have not seen any plaques or banners to suggest otherwise for Sr Boys. We will return eight juniors, two sophomores and will move up several 9th graders for next year’s team. Thank you to the Bulldog Nation for making the WAC a special place to play for our kids!”
