The Waldron Sr High Basketball teams are making their way from town to town and ensuring that every team they face will remember their names. The Sr High boys team is 4-0 in overall play while the Sr High girls team is 1-2. Last week the teams squared off against Magazine and Atkins. Tonight the Bulldogs hit the road and head to Horatio to foul out the Lions.
With the Sr High boys being 4-0, they are proving that there are zero goals they can’t reach. The boys have taken on and defeated DeQueen, Mulberry, Magazine, and Atkins. In those four games, a total of 288 points have been achieved by the Bulldogs. The boys have already blown last years stats out of the water. Four games into the 2017-2018 schedule, the Bulldogs were only 1-3. Talk about a complete turn-around. Head boys Coach Joshua Brown couldn’t be more happy with how his team has been performing this season, “I’m proud of our guys for how hard they have played and by overcoming adversities. They have played with some physicality in a great High School Basketball environment. I’m also proud of our guys for the great sportsmanship they displayed in the game against Atkins. All five of our guys on the floor went to check on an injured player after he got to a seat.”
The Sr High girls have already gone up against Mulberry, Magazine, and Atkins. Although they struggled for the wins in their last two games, the girls only lost by a combined total of 17 points. The Lady Bulldogs might be down at the moment but they certainly are not out. Head girls Coach Josh Atchley states “We are still growing and learning. We are focused on adding value from one day to the next. Junior Chelsea Stidmon has been one of our toughest competitors and quietly leads our team by example. Senior Chenoa Burdess is our returning scorer from last year and has put in tons of work to be successful this year. Seniors Jillian Davis, Lilly Scott, Mackinzie Callahan, Kenzy Polan, Sam Slater, Aubrey Butler, and Jackie Diaz have all bought in and worked incredibly hard all offseason.”
The Sr High and Jr High teams are hitting the court to demolish the Lions at Horatio with game time starting at 4 pm.
