Asher and Ringo
The Bulldogs are 4-1 in their overall record; they are 2-0 in district
play. The Bulldogs have two offenses. They have a power-house
running offense that is very hard to
stop, and they also have a good
spread offense. “Homecoming
week is always a big game for us.
Crescent is a good football team
and has a good air raid offense”.
Last year the bulldogs were up 21
to 6 at halftime and didn’t come out
to play in the second half. This year
the bulldogs will have to start and
finish the game. Come out Friday
night and help support the bulldogs
as they take on the Crescent Tigers.

The Minco FFA has been
very active this year. Three
of our members took pictures and entered poster
boards at the Oklahoma
State Fair. Our Judging team
has competed at the Okla-
homa State Fair Judging
Contest, and also last Friday
at the Tulsa State Fair. Last
week some of our members
exhibited their various livestock at the Tulsa State Fair
and won awards.
The band this week has
been working on marching for
the homecoming half-time
show. The band has also been
working on songs to play during
the game.
Get ready for a great
performance by the band Friday
night! And don’t miss them in
the parade on Friday! Go band!

We Love the Bulldogs!
Cheerleading is an intense physical activity based upon organized routines, usually ranging anywhere from one to
three minutes, which contains many components of tumbling, dance, jumps, cheers and stunting to cheer for a sport or compete in competition. It also includes learning cheers for the sidelines on Friday nights. This year’s 2013-2014 Minco High
School cheerleaders are Seniors: Paityn Matthews, Sarah Ford, Kaitlyn Eisenman, and Haylie Dewbre. Sophomores: Briana
Perkins, Kenzie Parks, and Regan Matthews!
The Minco Junior High Cheerleaders for this season are Monica Munn, Lindsey Rush, Rylee Martinez, Brook Putman,
Lauren Price, Cassidy Franklin, and Maddy Munn.
The high school cheerleaders meet every Monday to make spirit signs for the hallways and then have practice afterwards, and also have practice on Wednesdays. On those days they practice stunts, cheers, and dances for the upcoming
games to perform at halftime! Before each game, whether it’s home or away, the cheerleaders get the run through sign ready
and get everybody fired up with a spirit line. They cheer on the boys, get the crowd involved, the band plays, and they put up
a few stunts. Every time the bulldogs get a touchdown, the band plays the fight song and the cheerleaders perform a synchronized routine. After the game, win or loss, the cheerleaders are always supportive and show their bulldog pride!
The Minco Spirit never stops with these girls! They also make the football, softball, and basketball signs for everyone’s lockers, and have pep assemblies evenly throughout the year. They also hold fundraisers for camp every year that helps
pay for camp clothes, shoes, and the actual cheer camp, etc. Here, they learn new dance skills, cheers, stunts and leadership
skills. They learn how to work together and what being part of a team is all about. These girls have been doing a great job this
year, so the next time you see a Minco Cheerleader, tell them to keep up the good work. They would appreciate a little recognition for everything that they do. GO BULLDOGS!
