Midget and Mike Bagwell spent the weekend in Gonzales, La. They went to watch their grandson, Ethan Bagwell, juke it up on the gridiron.
Congratulations to Marshall Academy senior Erin Lomenick. Amidst the thunderstorm Friday night, she was crowned the 50th homecoming queen.
Threats of rain did not slow down the homecoming festivities at Heath Barnett Field Friday. The day kicked off with a parade of floats constructed by grades seven through 12. They rode a few laps around the square before going back to school to kick off the games. Each grade competed against the next in everything from dodgeball to blindly applying makeup to a classmate. The groups split up for class picnics on the grounds.
The last part of the day, the homecoming court was announced, the seniors had their farewell skit and the cheerleaders (both junior high and high school) put on a wonderful, spirit-filled pep rally.
The Patriots took on the Stars of Winona. Kickoff was delayed two hours because of the weather which, at first, did not seem to phase the team. They came out with some traction and struck first, putting a touchdown on the board. Winona came back and did not seem to slow down, racking up several touchdowns and two-point conversions. The Patriots travel to Senatobia to duke it out with the Chiefs of Magnolia Heights Friday night. Good luck!
