Football Results
On Thursday night the 8th grade Bullpups Football Teams took on the Gatesville Hornets at home.
White Team
The White team got off to a slow start allowing two first half touchdowns and at halftime found themselves in a 14-0 hole.  Gatesville had a couple long runs to score both TDs, and a few Bullpup offensive drives were stalled by penalties.  At halftime the boys decided that wasn’t how they wanted this game to go and came out very determined on both sides of the ball in the second half.  The offense got going behind the running of QB Zac Esposito, and RBs Wade Nedbalek and Zac Shaw.  Nedbalek squirted through some holes for some big gains and a TD, while Shaw had some bruising runs to delight the crowd and inspire his team.  A second TD by Esposito, and a conversion by Shaw would tie the score at 14.  Robert Nedbalek paced the defense with some big hits and an interception.  In a game that looked gloomy at halftime, the boys rallied, showing great determination and fight.
Green Team
After watching the White team come from behind and refuse to lose, the green team took the field in what would turn out to be a great battle between two good football teams.  The first half was a back and forth affair with the offense moving the ball and the defense coming up with some big stops.  The Pups got on the scoreboard first with a Silver Hinson 15 yard TD run.  Ryan Jackson conversion attempt was stopped short and the lead was 6-0.  The defense made it tough on the Hornet offense all night, but on a 4th down and 6, they were able to break a few tackles and get down the sideline for a long run.  Halftime saw the Pups down 8-6.  The second half was similar to the first with a lot of big defensive plays form both teams causing them to trade punts on the first few drives.  At the end of the 3rd quarter we faced a 4th and 15, and Ryan Jackson avoided tackles for a 17 yard gain to keep the drive alive.  After a couple tough Jordan Foster and Silver Hinson runs, Brynner Shackelford found the endzone to give the Bullpups a 12-8 lead.  The fourth quarter would test us defensively, and the boys passed with flying colors as we stopped the Hornets twice on fourth down.  A couple tough tackles by the linebacking corp of Zach Ferguson, Andre Meredith, Clayton McLaughlin, and Joseph Corona, kept the Hornet running game to a minimum, while key pass break ups by Shackelford and Jess Luther allowed the Bullpups to kneel out the clock for a second straight come from behind win.
The 7th and 8th graders hit the road again next Thursday as we are back in Waco to take on the LaVega Pirates.

@ Llano
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 competed. The Pride jumped out to a dominating lead behind unbelievable serving from Lesli Rodriguez and Alli Hawkins.  The Spirit could not recover and lost the game 11 to 25.   In the second game, Spirit started off strong behind amazing serves from Juleya Crawford, but Pride didn’t want to back down and fought back with more serves from Lesli Rodriguez! Both teams battled it out with great passing from Yamille Ramirez and Crystal Beam for Spirit and Jolie Walker and Meridith Dunahoo for Pride.  Spirit was able to keep the lead and won this game 25 to 21.  This took us to a third game. Both teams were very excited and ready to take home a win.  This game was close, just like the last one.  Both teams battled it out, but in the end Spirit was able to pull out the win behind consistent serves from Juleya Crawford and Carrie Guthrie!  I was very proud of how well the girls played and hustled for the ball.  We had several girls who are finally getting their serves over and becoming more consistent! The girls have one more game this season, next Wednesday, October 29th.  Come out and support your Lady Dawgs teams!

@ Llano
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!

This past Wednesday, the 8th grade Lady Dawg Spirit and Pride volleyball teams competed. Spirit took an early lead in the first set thanks to many strong serves from Allie Richardson and Jamie Edwards. Team Pride struggled with getting serves in consistently and came up short with a final score of 25-12. The second set was a different story! Both sides played their hearts out. Every point was well fought for.  Strong servers for Pride were Melissa Sprankle, Madison Slocum, Jennifer Lopez and Harli Springer. Standout servers on team Spirit were Jamie Edwards, Kansas Haynes and Madison Glaspy. The score went back and forth the entire game but it was team Spirit that came out on top again. The Spirit and Pride teams have one more game this season scheduled for next Wednesday, Oct. 29th. Come support these girls and their hard work this season.
