Bearcats and Bulldogs set for showdown It is has been a long time since a football game between Mena and Waldron has been a battle of the unbeatens, but that will be the case Friday when the Bulldogs (2-0) travel to Mena to take on the Bearcats (2-0).
The Bulldogs number priority is to stop or at least slow Mena's double-headed rushing attack of quarterback Carson Cannon (senior, 5-foot-11-inch, 185 pounds) and running back/receiver Justin Dean (senior, 6-foot-2-inch, 195 pounds). Cannon has ran 28 times for 191 yards and two touchdowns, while Dean has rushed for 288 yards and four touchdowns on 20 carries.
Bulldogs remain Battle of Scott County Champs It's hard to forget the big game one year ago close to this date when Waldron's football program took a huge turn for the better. But the best has yet to come. For the first time in at least a decade, Waldron defeated Mansfield for the second consecutive year.
Within the first two plays of offense for the Bulldogs, two touchdowns were scored by Waldron's Levi Hayden and Trey Williams. Waldron quickly jumped out to a 14-0 lead within just three minutes into the game.
Waldron volleyball looks to overcome early question marks After take over as head coach of Waldron volleyball team midway through last season, coach Toby Hollin said this group of girls is the most solid team she has had in her 10 years of coaching.
"Last year we were really up in the air with a lot of changes," Hollin said. "This summer the biggest thing we did was try to pull them together and do a lot of team bonding stuff together. It's been great. We have no divisions on this team right now. We may not the tallest or the fastest, but we are going to be a very solid defensive team."
Weaver wins 3rd MMA Championship Justin Weaver did not let fighting on short notice stop him from becoming the new Walkout Fighting Championship (WFC) Flyweight Champion Saturday, August 12 at the Joplin Memorial Hall in Joplin, Missouri.
Weaver was originally scheduled to take on Douglas Hurst (4-0) at the Batesville Community Center in Batesville, Arkansas, but a week before the fight Hurst backed out due to an illness.
Weaver said he never stressed about having to prepare for a new opponent on such short notice.
"It didn't matter who I was fighting," Weaver said. "I go out there and impose my will. We are going to fight my fight. The stressful thing was when I didn't think I was going to have a fight."
