Last night the girls traveled to Llano to take on the Lady Daubers.  After a bit of a slow start the girls got it all together and really took care of business. With two new additions to the A- team (Caitlynne Graves & Melissa Perez) they really became stronger!  Very proud of how the girls played and were able to come away with a big win!  The 2nd game we had a fast start with 19 straight points served by Lexi Courtney!  Great way to start a game!  We really played well as a team and put it all together tonight!

@ Llano
Last night we traveled to Llano to take on the Lady Daubers.  This was our third time to face this team and I think we came in a little over confident after defeating the Lady Daubers twice.  We did not have our best night and had a hard time staying with a much improved Llano team.  With many changes and trying to find a new “team chemistry”, we were unable to really play to our potential and came up short against the Daubers.  I am very proud of how hard the girls fought in the first game after trailing several points and came up just short 2 points.  The second set was awesome with 13 unanswered serves from Jessenia Garcia which really helped us pull off a win! The Lady Dawgs had a slight lead in the third set, but lost momentum and got their heads down with strong serving from the Lady Daubers.  This was a tough loss, but I know the girls will come out fighting next week!  The Lady Dawgs will be working hard to prepare for Salado next week!!

This past Wednesday, the 7th grade girls’ volleyball Spirit and Pride teams played their fourth inner-squad game. The Pride started off on fire with Lesli Rodriguez serving 6 straight unanswered points.  However, the Spirit did not back down and got back into the game behind the strong serving of Baylea Breeden who served 7 straight aces.  This gave the Spirit the lead and they kept it with great passing from Yamille Rodriguez and Tatum Davis and won the game 25-19.  In the second game, it was another close one. Spirit started off strong behind amazing serves from Baylea Breeden, Tatum Davis and Aubrey Miller.  As well as great passing from Taryn Briggs, Carrie Guthrie and Crystal Beam! Pride didn’t back down and tied the game after numerous serves by Lesli Rodriguez, Juleya Crawford and Devina Huerta.  Jolie Walker and Juleya Crawford saved several points with awesome passing at the net!  The game was back and forth until the Spirit pulled it out in the end to win it 26-24!  The girls continue to improve and I love watching the excitement and hustle from these girls.  Their next game will be Wednesday, October 22nd!

Last night we traveled to Llano to take on the Lady Daubers.  We did not have our best night and had a hard time staying with a very good Llano team.  We were unable to really play to our potential and came up short against the daubers.  We had several times we showed some life, but just could not continue it enough to pull out a win.  Very proud of how the girls fought in the 2nd game and after trailing 23-14 made a big run and got back within 23-22 but was just not enough.  We will get back in the gym and start preparing for Salado.

The 8B Lady Dawgs traveled to Llano last night to take on an improved Lady Dauber team.  The girls started off very slow and found themselves behind 6-2 before they knew it.  They tried to battle back, but were unable to recover and lost the first game.  The second game started off slow again, but behind some awesome serving from Paige Bridgeman and great team work all around, the girls won the second game.  This took us to a third game.  The Lady Dawgs were ready to finish this one on the win column.  The game was fought hard and the score was back and forth for every point until Lucila Ortiz and Mackenzie Goertz stepped up and made some much needed serves, which put the Lady Dawgs ahead.  Aubrey Losey, Paige Bridgeman and Brooke Weller were aggressive at the net and the entire team hustled for every point and in the end the Lady Dawgs won the battle!  I was very proud of the perseverance the girls showed in the game, they all worked together and I could not have asked more from them!  The 8B Lady Dawgs will be in action again next Monday, October, 27th when they host their last home game against Salado.  Come out and support your Lady Dawgs volleyball teams!

Football Results
The 8th Grade Bullpups travelled to Waco Robinson last night to take on the Rockets.
White Team:
The Bullpups kicked off to the Rockets, and after an earlier rocket score, the boys answered with a 60 yard touchdown run by Zac Esposito.  The defense would fly around, but the rockets were able to put one more score on the board to see a halftime defecit of 14-6.  In the second half, both teams would trade scores. Burnet’s drives were highlighted by some nice runs by Zach Shaw.  Another long TD run by Esposito, and the fourth quarter would show a close game at 20-14.  The rockets mounted one more scoring drive, but not before some great defensive plays by Jacob Ledesma and a pass break up by Robert Livingston.  A great catch by Ross Geisenschlag would try to get a late rally going, but time ran out and the game ended with a 28-14 loss.  The boys played tough and have shown improvement every week.
Green Team:
It was the tale of two halves in the Green game.  The boys went into halftime down 20-8, but never gave in and played their best football of the year and rallied in the second half for a great come from behind 36-28 victory.  Brynner Schackelford was a leader on both sides of the ball, running hard from his QB position, and breaking up passes defensively.  The Rockets were able to muster only one long scoring drive, while their other three score came on long TD passes.  The Bullpups found multiple ways to score.  An 80 yard fumble return by Shackelford, on a stripped ball by Joseph Guthrie, led off the scoring in the first quarter.  Silver Hinson would find the end zone on the 2 point conversion to give the Pups a 8-0 lead.  After a Rocket score and conversion the game would remain tied through most of the first half.  Two late TD passes in the first half made it 20-8 at the break.  Then the Bullpup onslaught began.  Offensively and defensively the boys imposed their will on the Rockets.  Jordan Foster started the scoring with a 4 yard bruising run in the 3rd quarter.  At the end of the 3rd, a Shackelford 18 yard TD pass to Kade Strong, along with a Ryan Jackson conversion run, the Pups would lead 22-20.  The boys would get two more scores in the 4th quarter on a 25 yard Cade Foster run, and a 47 yard Silver Hinson run.  The offensive line of Zac Hudgins, Andrew Hawkins, Jacob Bernal, Martin Palacios, and Luke Aguillon opened holes all night for the backs to run through.  After pushing their lead to 36-20, the defense had to hold the Rockets comeback attempt in check.  Defensive plays by Ryan Jackson, Zach Ferguson, and Logan Herrin were key in the final stops.  It was the best TEAM game of the year, as everyone on the roster found a way to contribute to the victory.
The Bullpups have been road warriors the last two weeks, making consecutive trips to Waco.  Next week the get to play at the friendly confines of Bulldog field, as we host the Hornets of Gatesville.  Come out and support the boys.

Bulldog White Team
In the first game of the evening the Burnet White team played a tight game against the Rockets from Robinson with the final score at 6 – 6.
The Bulldog offense did some great things this evening but struggled to put points on the board despite several impressive and long drives down the field. Offensive line play this evening was outstanding from Hayden Clough, Liam Franco, William Johnson, Caleb Chambers, and Ray Amador.
The defense played a great game limiting Robinson’s offensive output and stifling drives. Defensive standouts are Andrue Gonzalez with a fumble recovery and Kaleb Alexander who returned a 62 yard interception for a touchdown.
Bulldog Green Team
The Bulldog Green team lost 32 – 18 in a fast paced game.
The offense struggled to finish drives but was able to move the ball on the Rockets. Hunter King scored with a short 5 yard rumbling tumbling touchdown run for the Bulldogs first score behind outstanding blocking from the front line that have not looked better all year. The quarterbacks and receivers struggled to get connected this game. Running backs Isaac Sanchez and Logan Cummings had good games. Sanchez had several tough runs and Cummings had two touchdowns of 41 and 64 yards.
The defense tonight although giving up several scores played well. This was a hard hitting fast paced game. Big hits of the evening came from Jaylen Laidler, Bradyn McPherson, and Bryan Silva. Bradyn McPherson stripped a ball from a running back that was recovered by Kaden Stubblefield. Stubblefield recovered another fumble in the game after laying a vicious hit on a ball carrier.
The coaches are extremely proud of the work ethic that is being shown at every practice. These two teams never quit and fight to the end.  Next week’s game for both the 7th and 8th is home against Gatesville Hornets.  The 7th White game will start at 4:30 followed by the 7th Green team at 5:15.
