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.

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! Cheer Briana and Jensen 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!
