Bison Brags & Celebrations

15th Annual Dodgeball Tournament Results!

The 15th Annual Dodgeball Tournament was a great success! Thanks to everyone who came out to support the Bison, Falcon, and Tiger Smart programs. Sixty-seven teams participated in the event with nearly 1,000 spectators. Congratulations to the grand champions, East Trails eighth-grade team, Bison Brood. The Pleasant Lea seventh-grade Barbies took second place, and the Summit Lakes sixth-grade Kings won the third-place prize.

With the last-minute change of venue, I’d like to give a special thanks to Dr. Morehead, Mrs. Moses, Shelly Dumler, Stacy Patton, Cindy Ullman and Kelly Powelson for ensuring the tournament could carry on without a hitch!

ETMS FTC Robotics Tournament

The Robotics team had a great weekend at the FIRST Tech Challenge, KC East League Tournament. Team 21487, BisonBots, finished in 10th place with a record of 3-3 on the day and team 22093, BisonBots Green, finished 14th place with a record of 4-2 on the day. BisonBots Green recieved 3rd place in the Control Award sponsored by Arm Inc. Even though neither BisonBots team were selected to be on the one of the four alliances to play in the Playoffs in the afternoon, they both gained a lot of experience in thier Rookie year. The BisonBot teams learned that they were two of six Middle School teams competing, the other 20 teams were made up of high school students.
