BEDFORD JUNIOR HIGH SPIRIT NIGHT
Choir classes stepped off of the risers to organize the UIL sight reading process. Groups raced to put the procedures and steps in chronological order. They are already working hard and on their way to UIL success in March!
Bedford junior high PTA does a great job organizing spirit night at the campus with In-N-Out Burger.
STUCO AND NJHS ATTEND LEADERSHIP DAY
Leadership Day is a designed seminar to provide insight into aspects of leadership for a professional sports franchise. Our students heard from various Mavericks staff in leadership positions as they discussed their personal successes, as well as various leadership traits, styles, and issues.
The students had a wonderful time and were inspired to become better leaders. It was also a really great game even if they lost in the last quarter.
Mark your calendars for February 3, National School Crossing Guard Appreciation Day! Please remember to show your love for these amazing individuals who work hard and selflessly every day to keep the students safe to and from school. Thanks for being on our team and working together to continuously work towards the safest experience possible for the students and families of Bedford schools!

FRESHMAN GIRLS SOCCER
FRESHMAN GIRLS BASKETBALL
The freshman girls picked up another win last Friday night, taking down North Crowley at the buzzer in a hard fought battle, 22-23.
In the first half our girls really took control, shutting down Crowley's offensive threats early and holding them to only 6 points at the half. Katrina Spencer, Ella Trevino, Natalie Luna, Amira Yassin, Savannah Williams and Addison Smith put the defensive pressure on Crowley, forcing several turnovers from start to finish. Jaylin Wilson led our scorers with 6 points, but it was a balanced attack with Zoey Herring, Adraiya Hill, Addyson Williams, Trevino, Luna, and Smith all chipping in, too. In the 3rd quarter North Crowley started to build a comeback, and in the 4th quarter with 4.1 seconds remaining, we found ourselves down by 1 point. Trevino was inbounding the ball on the sideline and after our play was busted, she found Luna cutting out hard to the wing. Luna caught, took a dribble, and hit the game winning shot as time expired.
The ladies will continue on their hot streak Friday as they take on Central here at 4pm, before the 8th grade tournament begins. They only have 2 more home games at BJH, so come out and support your freshman squad!
8TH GRADE GIRLS BASKETBALL
Our B team had a solid defensive game keeping the Stallions to only 4 points each quarter. Crista "The Flash" Lopez was all over the place last night defensively stopping fast breaks & anticipating passes. Some tough block outs and rebounds were made by Shalom Harkins, Kaylee Hartman, Haley Bedlington, and Isabella Darce. Mia Williams, Addy Attiguelle, Olivia Delgado, and Addy McCollum did a great job looking for the open teammate and some solid shots from outside the paint. The leading scorer was Haley Bedlington with 6 followed by Kaylee Hartman and Crista Lopez with 5. A solid 26-16 win for our Lady Broncos!
A team played a quick and scrappy Lady Stallion team Thursday night also, but that didn't stop us! Our solid team defense & rebounds gave us many scoring opportunities on the other end of the court. MuRae Horn had a season-high of 18 points and over 10 steals. Mia Easter Clark had a double-double last night with over 10 rebounds and 12 points. Madeline Dean also had 6 points, followed by Tia Iafeta with 4. Brooklyn Williams and Kenslee Turner hustled like crazy, getting some defensive steals for fast break opportunities. Hailee Blocker Smith protected the paint and had a solid night of tough rebounds. Proud of the girls for sealing the victory over Euless with a score of 47-26.
Our A team plays in a tournament at home this weekend! Stop by tonight and watch us take on North Oaks at 5:30!
