The race was on for the Waldron Jr High Bulldogs and Lady Bulldogs as they proved last night during the Van Buren Jr Relays, that no matter how big their opponents are, they have no problem stepping up and facing the music. On Monday, March 15, Waldron headed north to take on schools from Alma, Cedarville, Fort Smith, Greenland, Greenwood, Ozark, Mansfield, Russellville, and Van Buren but remained the Big Dogs as the dust settled and the night ended.

Kickin’ butt first and asking names later was the Lady Bulldogs who might shine like a diamond but are still tough as nails. The Jr Girls’ team consisted of 16 athletes who have been steadily rising to the occasion as the season progresses. Out of 13 teams, the Lady Dogs placed 3rd with a team total of 95 points. For the relay races, the girls earned 5th place in the 4×200 and 6th place spots in the 4×100, 4×400, and 4×800.

For the Jr High Bulldogs, they left their competition struggling “between a walk and a hard pace” (see what I did there)! The talent on the boys’ roster is stacked higher than an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast. The Bulldogs also found themselves sitting in 3rd Place with a team total of 98.5 points. For the relays, the boys earned 2nd in the 4×400, 3rd in the 4×200 and the 4×800, and 4th in the 4×100. After finding epic success last season, the Jr Boys are at it again.
