Wow! What a week we had last week! Yamboree is always a 'yamming' good
time, and our kids came out to shine in all that they did!
We are so proud of all of our organizations that took part in the
Yamboree Contests, not to mention the Cross Country Teams on Monday, the
UIL Marching Contest last Tuesday, the Volleyball games, and the
several Football games!
It all started on Monday, with the Cross Country Teams competing in the
District Cross Country Meet in Union Grove! The Varsity Boys advanced to
the Regional Cross Country Meet, to be held in the coming weeks! They
finished as District Runner-up!
Then, on Tuesday, the Wildcat Band scored STRAIGHT 1s at the UIL
Marching Contest, to begin their straight 3rd year of Sweepstakes Band!
On Tuesday, the Volleyball Teams won vs Union Grove in 3 straight sets!
On Thursday evening, at Union Grove, the Varsity Football Wildcats got
that "W", 27-19!
For the Yamboree, we had many students in both parades, on Friday and
Saturday, anchored by our very own Miss Big Sandy, Katie Parker, and
Mrs. Big Sandy High School, Maci Childress! We had so many kids involved
on floats, such as Pee Wee Cheer and others!
At the Yamboree Fairgrounds, the Wildcats FFA and Ag Mechanics students
cleaned up and I mean cleaned up, once again! We won the Overall Reserve
Champion Sweepstakes FFA/Ag Mechanics Program! James Briscoe won Grand
Champion Swine and Jaxson Croley won Grand Champion Goat! We also won
Grand Champion and Reserve Grand Champion Non-Sale Shop Project, as well
as Reserve Grand Champion Sale Project!
Many of our kids won Blue Ribbons, as we had almost 50 shop projects
entered into the Ag Mechanics show! We had 11 FFA students make the sale
on Saturday, with their Animal Projects, in all 5 Animal Shows!
We had students make the sale in Broiler Chickens, Market Rabbits,
Goats, Swine, and Steers!
