It Was Football Saturday around our Area......

On Saturday we went to the big event in Ardmore, to support our school in Football Saturday. In the past, 12 schools in Southern Oklahoma competed for the top prize of $1,250.00. This year only 5 participated, but the winning prize was the same. Lexi's school has won the past 6 years in a row. Do you think they could possibly win again?
Her school is the Lone Grove Longhorns and here they are on the field performing. From the paper it said: In a day filled with school pride, cheerleaders, players, pep squads and bands from each school were judged in seven categories (crowd participation, dance routine, cheer, band, section decorations, originality and teamwork) on a 1 to 10 scale. There were 7 judges for the event.
They had a large square sectioned off for each school to perform in and the fans were all around it screaming, yelling, and just generally rooting your school on.


There is Lexi in white (t-shirt) and black (our school colors), clapping and cheering our school on.
That is Bruno, the school mascot. I bet the girl in the suit was burning up!

Another piece in the paper about Lone Grove said: Winning one championship is an achievement. It takes luck to double up. The third championship in a row is said to be a charm, four is the stuff of which dynasties are made, five is royalty status, and six straight is close to seen-it-all-type stuff. Now do you think we could win again??????
YES!!!!! 7 wins in a row!!!!! How fabulous and what a great show everyone put on!

That is fabulous! I bet it was a fun thing to watch. Lots of organization and school just started. That means work in the summer but it was sure worth it. Congratulations to the Longhorns!

Our school has 1 confirmed and several suspected--like 14--cases of swine flu. Yikes! That sure was fast. It has only been in session 7 days.

Take care and have a great Monday.
