Mustang Monitor – March 1

First of many Greetings,

With so much “up in the air” about the activities week, I’m confident this will be the first of several editions of the Monitor. Bear with us as we work to keep you informed.

First; a loud Mustang SHOUT OUT and congratulations to the CAC Swim Team. In state action on Saturday, all swimmers posted their best times of the seasons and logged some outstanding results. For the Lady Mustangs, Katie Games place 2nd in the 100 yd Backstroke and 5th in the 100 yd Breaststroke while Rachel Weaver totaled a 3rd in the 200 yd Freestyle and 4th in the 100 yd Freestyle. With those efforts, CAC placed Fourth in the 1A – 5A competition! On the guys side, Jayson Simmons tallied a 3rd in the 100 yd Freestyle and 4th in the 50 yd Freestyle good for a Tenth place team placing in the 1A – 5A classification on his own. Great job to all and thank you for your efforts for the year. Others who swam during the season included Lauren Weaver and Dylan Smith. We are proud of you!!

Basketball continues; check the Weekly Schedule for possibilities dependant on Monday results. We will do our best to keep you update. State is at Ozark High School, 1631 Hillbilly Drive in Ozark; a mere 117 miles from Mustang Mountain. I-40 West to either Exit 37 or 35. Left (south) to Hwy 64 then turn right (west); the school will be on the right. Admission is $6 for students and adults. No signs, no face paint, stay off the floor, be nice. Remember, YOU might be the ONLY example of CAC High School someone sees! No video recording on any device without a camera tag. Still photos are permitted. I can heartily recommend the Rivertowne BBQ in Ozark. It is excellent. If course, well known options exist as you travel to the game.

The CAC choirs will have their annual assessment performances this week in Searcy. Best wishes to all the groups and their directors, Janice Northen and Tori Beech.

The first of several reminders on this subject. The Drama Department will present Disney’s Beauty and the Beast March 14 – 16 with performances in Cone Auditorium. Shows will be presented at 7:00 pm on Saturday and Monday with a 2:00 pm matinee on Sunday. Admission prices are $10 for adults; $7 for students K and up. This is the largest drama production undertaken by CAC. There will be a cast and crew of nearly 50 students, 7 of which are from the elementary school. Some 30 or more students have worked on the set, props and costumes along with the assistance of additional parents and friends of the program. Once the curtain rises, nearly 100 of the CAC family will have been involved. A large production indeed! All are under the expert and (relatively) tireless guidance of Jenna Thomas, CAC’s drama department director. You will not want to miss this show with its glorious visuals of set and costumes, the heart-warming story and fabulous musical score. Make plans to attend! Tickets will be available for purchase shortly before the show or at the door.

That’s it for now. If I forgot anything, I told you there will be several follow up editions. Stay tuned for updates. You might also follow me on Twitter @BowTieAD for immediate information. Until the next time, be well, be happy and give us a shout if we may be of help.
