Basketball Update

Saturday Results and Games for Monday & Tuesday!

Time to catch your breath!

Many Aquin Bulldog and Bluejay fans could be found in at least 5 area gyms yesterday cheering their teams on to victory. The results of those games were very good across the board--and are only just the beginning of a week filled with basketball. Following is a recap of Saturday and a listing of times and places where the Dawgs and 'Jays are playing on Monday and Tuesday.

Here we go!

First . . . Yesterday's Bulldog Tourney Results

  • Aquin Fresh-Soph Boys Tourney: Aquin Fresh-Soph defeated Pecatonica, Aquin Freshmen lost to Dakota
  • Forreston Varsity Boys Tourney: Aquin defeated Dakota (and played MUCH better than they did Thursday night against Dakota :)
  • Eastland Fresh-Soph Girls Tourney: Aquin won all 3 games in Round Robin play with victories over Pecatonica, Eastland and Dakota
  • Pearl City Varsity Girls Tourney: Aquin defeated Warren

And a Milestone from Yesterday

Early in the game against the Warren Warriors at the Pearl City Tourney, Haley Chang joined the ranks of the 'Bulldog Basketball 1000 Point Club' as she scored her 1000th point with a breakaway lay-up.

Congratulations Haley!

And More Good News from Yesterday

Happy to report that most of the items from Friday night's incident in Forreston have been recovered--including the medical bag. Unfortunately, as of last night, there have been no arrests or capture of the individuals involved.

Kudos to the Forreston Police Department and surrounding departments for their quick actions on this case which resulted in the recovery of the items. The individuals used credit cards at 8:38pm in Byron on Friday night--before the cards were de-activated. Unfortunately, there were no cameras at the locations where the cards were used.

Many thanks to those who spread the 'correct' message via social media. There are close to 10,000 views of the post on Facebook. Another situation where social media is good!
