The Sr High Bulldogs boys team has done it again. They forked over good passes, dished out assists and served up a win for their game against the West Fork Tigers. Last night the Bulldogs won 68-67 which brings their total season play to 9-2 and 1-0 in conference play. Letting your guard down is not something you want to do when facing these young men. They are focused and determined to make it to the top. Lady Luck was courtside as the Bulldogs took their first lead of the night in the last 7 seconds of the game. They were able to hold off the Tigers and secure a win. Payton Brown came out on top with 32 points and Ruben Valdez added 18 to the total. Head Coach Joshua Brown said, “I am proud of our guys for persevering tonight when some things didn’t go our way. Sometimes you have to make your own breaks and our guys did that tonight.”
The Sr High Lady Bulldogs played incredibly well during their game against the Lady Tigers. The girls came up a little short in their first conference game of the season. Ending the game with a close 45-41, the Lady Bulldogs are now 1-8 in total season play and 0-1 in conference play. Jillian Davis scored 16 points for her team while Chenoa Burdess made 9. Head Coach Josh Atchley says, “I know that these girls will get over this hump. They just have to trust in all of their hard work paying off.”
