Bulldog Sports News

Bandera Middle School Cross Country by Coach Edwards

On Saturday, September 14, the Bandera Middle School Cross Country Team defended their home turf at the Bandera City Park. Bulldog runners squeezed onto the starting line with about 200 runners in each of the two races. Our bulldogs performed well, overcoming the crowded course, the heat, and many larger schools. Our next meet is in Fredericksburg on Wednesday, September 18. Please come out and support our middle and high school cross country teams. We are one!

7th grade boys - 2nd place

8th grade boys - 5th place

8th grade girls - 2nd place

Several of our runners dropped minutes off of their personal record times.

On Wednesday, September 18, Bandera Middle School Cross Country returned from Fredericksburg with 3 undefeated teams! Unfortunately, after the 8th grade boys race (which was shortened to 1 ½ miles), Fredericksburg was forced to cancel the meet. Several runners in the high school races experienced complications due to the heat, hydration, and other factors that required EMS personnel to take them to the emergency room. For the safety of all of the athletes, Fredericksburg authorities wisely chose not to run the last 3 races. Our next meet is in Comfort on Saturday, September 28. Please come out and support our middle cross country teams. We are one!

BHS Tennis by Coach Frye

Tennis lost to Canyon Lake last night 2-16. Special congrats to Michael Nevarez and Kathya Gonzalez/Jessica Taylor for their big wins. We had a lot of really close matches, many went to tiebreakers, we just couldn't quite close on them. Next week we travel to Ingram on Thursday to face the Fredericksburg Billies.

JV Volleyball by Coach Gard

The JV girls showed their mettle last night, coming from behind several times for a hard fought win against a resilient Ingram JV squad. BHS won 2-1. Dominant serving from Lyndsey Blair and Samantha Jaeger supported some impressive come from behind runs. Athletic plays at the net by Dorothy Magee won several critical points. Summer Haby roamed the backcourt skillfully, frustrating Ingrams' offensive pushes to find open court to hit to.Overall, a very satisfying victory from a squad that continues to improve.

Standout Players:Dorothy Magee, Summer Haby, Lyndsey Blair, Samantha Jaeger

Friday Night Lights by Coach Bagby

The Bandera Bulldogs overcame a slow start and “Friday the 13th” to remain unbeaten. It was a great night for Texas High School Football under a beautiful full moon at UIW. At the final buzzer the scoreboard read: Bandera 40 and St. Anthony 12.

The Bulldog defense held the Yellowjackets to 151 yards rushing and 0 yards passing. The Bulldog defense had 3 sacks, 7 tackles for a loss, and 1 safety for 2 points. Colton Perkins and Emmitt Evans were the Defensive Players of the Week.

Special Teams had a solid performance, scoring 14 points on the night. The combination of great kicks by Christian Gonzales and solid coverage by the kickoff team...pinned the Yellowjackets offense throughout the game. Blaise Salazar went 5 for 5 on extra points and had a 28 yard field goal. The Special Teams Player of the Week was Tommy Cardenas. Tommy had a 95 yard kickoff return for a TD...key blocks by Ian Short and Gage Brown paved the way as Gunnar Brown and Brian Burns escorted Tommy to pay dirt. It was a huge momentum swing in the game as the Bulldogs would not let off of the gas from that point on.

The Bulldogs got on the scoreboard in the 2nd quarter on a 28 yard FG by Blaise Salazar to put Bandera up 3-0. The Yellowjackets answered with a TD but the extra point was blocked by Tommy Cardenas! On the ensuing kickoff, Tommy took the ball 95 yards to the house for 6 points. Blaise Salazar added the PAT to make the score 10-6 going into halftime.

The first score of the 4th quarter would come on a 4th and 10. MacNeil threw a 33 yard fade to the corner of the endzone, and Austin Abitz made a great reception for the TD. Salazar added the PAT to make the score 31-12. Following a safety...later in the 4th quarter, Tommy Cardenas would punch in a 1 yard rushing TD. Salazar added the PAT to bring the score to 40-12. Bandera controlled the clock and was able to kneel it out in VICTORY formation.

The Bandera offensive line had a solid night, paving the way for 233 yards rushing and 334 yards of total offense. Solomon MacNeil had a great game at QB, with 101 yards passing and 2 touchdowns. He was also the leading rusher with 115 yards on 12 carries and a TD.
