The Bulldog Band has had an amazing year and recently competed in the UIL Concert and Sightreading Contest. They earned straight Division I ratings (the best score you can get) on their concert music and an overall Division I rating in sightreading. In addition to that, the band had 7 members make the All-Region Band, 3 members earn I’s . . .
The Anton track season is flying by as the Junior High is already done this year and moving on to tennis and the off-season. The Anton Junior High had a very successful track season as the girls and boys teams both won the district track meet. They had a great year and will really help out next year in high school.
The Anton High School’s track season is still going on. They just ran their area track meet last week, as the girls won the meet and the boys were fourth. On the girl’s side, Anton took home the gold in both, the 4x200 meter relay and the 4x400 meter relay. Individually, Layna Clardy took first in the 100, third in the 200, and third in long jump. Mariah Jimenez was first in the 200, and third in pole vault. Ariana Juarez was third in both the 800 and 1600 meter runs. Joy Davis was second in the 100 hurdles along with Alani Juarez who earned a silver medal in pole vault. Alejandra Coronado also earned a third in the 300 hurdles. Finally, Britni Parker swept the throwing and got gold in discus and shot put for the Lady Dawgs.
The boys had a great running day as well, as they were third in all three relays. Individually, Jordan Haston was fourth in high jump, William Cole was third in discus, and last but not least, Canan Wood earned a silver medal in triple jump.
This was just the beginning for some of these competitors, as many of them are planning on making it to state this year. The hard work these athletes have put in is paying off as I type. Keep checking the website to hear about the results at regionals.
