The Jr High Waldron Bulldogs hosted the Elkins Elks this past Thursday. Both Bulldog teams played with plenty of energy, pushing themselves until the sound of the final buzzer. Although they gave it everything that they had, both teams came up short. The Jr Lady Bulldogs ended their game 44-18. Coach Hannah Scantling had this to say about her Lady Bulldogs, “The girls struggled to score and couldn’t seem to get in a rhythm. My top player was 8th grader, Jasmine Nelson. She worked hard the entire game. Regardless if we are winning or losing she always plays her hardest and does everything that is asked of her.”
The (2-6) Jr Bulldogs started off to a rough start but picked it up and started playing much better in the second half. “I am proud of the way our guys responded to the challenge,” says Coach Josh Atchley. “We dug ourselves a hole early but battled well the second half. Camdon Holcomb played his best half of basketball the second half and if he continues that, he could be dangerous for other teams.”
On Tuesday, January 15 at 4 pm, the Bulldogs will host the Greenland Pirates.
