With only two losses under their belt since December 13, the Waldron Sr High Bulldogs are making the game of basketball look easier than a one horse race. On Friday, January 24, the Bulldogs took another victim captive as they crushed the West Fork Tigers 80-59. Whether it is an away game or fighting on their home court, Waldron isn’t fazed by anything that their 3A-1 West conference opponents along with non-conference foes throw at them.
Head coach, Joshua Brown, has been molding this group of players into the b-ballin’ machines that they are since they started their middle school basketball careers. Now the 2019-2020 Bulldogs are holding an 18-4 total season record along with being 7-1 in conference play. The Bulldogs own 1,485 points on the year and are ranked 53 in the state.
When it came to putting the West Fork Tigers down, Payton Brown earned 25 points, Isaac “The Real” Villarreal brought in 19, Braden Williams secured eight, Jacob Avila netted seven, Gada Wagner obtained five, Mason Ford bagged four, Jaden Hutchens and Sam Slater each landed three, and Bryson Bailey, Ruben Valdez, and Caden Fuller combined for six.
Next up is the always savage match-up between the Bulldogs and the Mansfield Tigers. The last time these two teams came face to face, Waldron stole the show 86-65. The Bulldogs will host the Tigers on Tuesday, January 28 starting at 6 p.m. And as an added bonus, the Junior class will be having a Chili Supper Fundraiser so make sure to bring your appetite!
