From the AD 10-27-14
For State Volleyball, the Lady Bombers earned the number 2 seed from the 6A East and will take on El Dorado tomorrow at 12:00 noon at the Hangar. With the win, we will play Benton, who is the number 1 team from the south with a 14-0 conference record, Wednesday also at 12:00 noon. With that win, we will play at 4:00 on Thursday more than likely against Russellville who has a 14-0 6A/7A central conference record. All finals in all classifications will be this Saturday in Hot Springs. The 6A game is scheduled for 11:00 a.m. Just a reminder, since this is a State Tournament, only Arkansas Activities Association passes will be admitted free of charge. Unfortunately, we cannot honor senior citizen, family, or sports' activity passes. The AAA cost is $6 per person. We would love to have all Bomber fans in attendance. Parking for fans for the noon games will be in the north parking lot.
Congratulations to Jaden McClellan and Cortni Thomas for finishing as 6A individual Tennis State Runners-up. Jaden also led the Bombers to a State Runners-up team title and Cortni helped the Lady Bombers finish third. Good luck to Jaden and Cortni as they compete in the tennis overall tournament this Wednesday and Thursday at Burns Park in Little Rock.
Although the football Bombers continue to improve, the size and numbers of the 7A Cabot Panthers proved too much for the Bombers. We will travel to Searcy this Friday to take on the Lions. Kick-off is set for 7:00.
The Junior Bombers are currently 7 -0 on the season and will play Salem tonight at Bomber Stadium. The 7th grade game will start at 5:30 followed by the 9th grade game about 6:30. Come see these young Bomber football players – they are a special group.
Good luck to both Cross Country teams as we participate in the 6A East/Central conference cross country meet tomorrow at Russellville.
The Bomber Booster Club will meet at 11:30 at Holy Smokes Bar-B-Q located on 201 North. Some of our members suggested we move our meeting location periodically to give support to other restaurants. Again, we will meet today at Holy Smokes. Everyone is invited to attend.
