We are very proud of senior Dalton Reed. Dalton signed a National Letter of Intent to wrestle at Williams Baptist College in Walnut Ridge.
To everyone who is fortunate enough to still have your Mother, hope you were able to spend some quality time with her either in person or on the phone. My siblings and I spent Mother's Day on the banks of Knob Creek with our mother, Marge Cooper, roasting hotdogs, wading in the creek, and just chilling out. We believe she is the best Mom ever!
Congratulations to junior Lane Alexander for winning the 6A Individual 3200 State Championship! Congratulations also to Courtney Guthrie and Rebecca McGough for finishing as State Runner-up in the shot and 3200, respectively. The Lady Bombers finished 7th overall and the Bombers finished 8th overall in the 6A state track meet in Russellville. Head coach Philip Goodwin, his assistants, and both track teams are to be commended for a great season.
Both soccer teams defeated West Memphis by identical scores of 6-0. Softball also beat West Memphis in a double header but the baseball team dropped both games to West Memphis.
State tournaments in baseball, softball, and soccer start this week. The baseball team finished as the number 3 seed and will play the number 6 seed from the south at 5:30 in Benton. Softball is also in Benton and we should know today exactly what seed we are and when we play.
Soccer will be competing in the state tournament in Russellville. The boys will play Thursday at 2:30 and the girls, who received a bye due to their number 2 seed, will play the winner of 3 south and 6 east on Friday at 2:00.
All teams will advance if they keep winning with the finals set for next week-end in Fayetteville on the University of Arkansas campus.
It was great to watch former Bomber baseball standout Trey Killian as he gave up only 2 hits in a 3-2 win over the Texas A & M Aggies. Trey is having a great year with the Razorbacks and we wish them the best of luck in post season play.
The Bomber Booster Club will meet at 11:30 today at Western Sizzlin’. Everyone is welcome to attend.
Janet Wood, AD
