Celebrating Choice: Exploring Agricultural Pathways in BMS Ag
Check out the fun at Bandera Middle School last Friday: The 8th grade Ag students got to rotate through the different pathways that Ag has to offer! This included Animal Science, Agribusiness, Plant Science, Environmental Science, Natural Resources, Ag Mech and Food
Safety and Processing. At every station the students got to do an activity to represent the pathways. Ag Mech built marshmallow barns, natural resources “mined” for coal, animal science made sheep, plant science made chia pets and so on! They had so much fun! Thanks Ms. Fullen!

Bulldog Sports: BHS Cross Country by Coach Ashcraft
Our community and school district takes pride in the saying, “Smaller. Better. Bandera.” This
proved true this weekend as the Bandera Lady Bulldog Cross Country team competed in the
Medina Valley Invitational Cross Country Meet. Although the girls faced much larger teams
from huge school districts, they held their own and proved that they mean business. The
Varsity team placed 4th out of 20 teams competing mainly against 5/6A teams. They also
competed without two of their varsity teammates. All returning varsity lettermen improved their
times tremendously over the 5k course, which is not a typical race for the girls. Sophomore,
Raelynn Butler led the Lady Bulldogs placing 11th individually and earning a medal. In the
Junior Varsity division, the girls placed 10th out of 19 teams. Leading the girls, was Freshman,
Kaitlin Doebbler. She was in a close second the first half of the race and then moved into first.
It became a footrace in the last 40 meters and Kaitlin was edged out but still earned the silver
medal individually. All Junior Varsity girls that competed last week improved their times
anywhere from 40 seconds to over a mintute. The varsity boys placed 16th led by Ethan Brown who placed 37th overall. With a field of almost 200 runners 2 other boys placed in the top half(Logan Dybowski and Sam Nimmrichter). Also running strong were Braden Cox, Bailey Cox, Jesus Rodriguez, and Kelly Columbia. The JV boys had a very strong race finishing 10th overall. The team was led by Jacob Haas followed by Juan Reyna, Cody Jureczki, Sage Wiltse, and Reese Mazurek. Several boys set personal records in the 5k category. All cross country teams will return to competition in Llano this Saturday, September 7th..
Friday Night Lights: by Coach Bagby
The Bandera Bulldogs opened up the season with a 20-13 win over SA Memorial at home Friday night.
The Bulldog defense played well all night – holding Memorial to only 110 yards rushing the entire game. The defense won the field position battle creating major problems for the Memorial punt team. Gunnar Brown and Garrett Meier were the Defensive Players of the Week.
After a slow first half, the Bulldog offense exploded in the 3rdquarter with 3 rushing touchdowns by 3 different Bulldogs. With the offensive line playing physical, Bandera would end the night with 256 yards rushing.
The first TD was scored on a huge 4thand goal from the 1-yard line. Gunnar Brown scored on a Jet Sweep with a great block by Logan Williams. Blaise Salazar added the Extra Point.
The second TD was scored by Tommy Cardenas from 5 yards out. Blaise Salazar added the Extra Point. Tommy led the rushing attack with 119 yards on 17 carries. He had several physical runs late in the game that helped seal the victory.
The third TD was scored by Brock Johnson from 10 yards out with a great block from Gunnar Brown. The extra point was blocked.
Solomon MacNeil had a solid night at QB, with 32 yards passing and a crucial 94 yards rushing.
The Bandera Bulldogs will host San Antonio Christian next Friday night at 7:30. Come out and support us as we look to start the season 2-0.
