Mustang Monitor – August 30, 2015
Heating up greetings,
It appears summer is to arrive on the scene just in time for football. And aren’t we all glad!!!!!
Varsity football play gets up and running on Tuesday. 5:00 pm kickoff at War Memorial; CAC will be the visitors. If things go as previous years, tickets will be sold on the West side (press box side) but our side will be on the East side, visitors’ behind our bench. In the sun of course. Drink lots!!! But, the sun will soon go behind the press box and the “chill” will set in. Either way, there will be some hot action on the field as the Mustangs begin the 2015 season. Come on out, support some Mustangs, get home relatively early and enjoy Friday night off for the last time for a while.
The Lady Mustang Volleyball squad played in Little Rock’s Spikefest this past weekend and turned in some great victories. The team cleared pool play and made it to the medal round narrowly falling to Texas High (Texarkana) in a close match in the quarterfinals. The squad remains undefeated in conference play which will continue at home hosting Robinson. To free up a night somewhere, all teams will play Thursday; 7th, 8th and 9th in the Little Gym beginning at 4:00. The JV and Varsity squads will start off at 5:00 in the Big Gym.
A Shout Out to the cheer squads for their hard work prepping and assisting with Meet the Mustangs on Friday night. They all gave excellent attention to spirit signs and helping to get the teams fired up and ready for season openers this week. Great job, ladies!!!
And, a serious SHOUT OUT to the Lady Mustang golfers!! They went to Melbourne for an 18 hole tournament with some conference teams and came away rousingly victorious. Word was; a win by more than 100 strokes; pretty salty since only three scores count. They were led by Josie Roberson (-4) and Allie Weiner (-2) with strong assists by Alexa Goodlow and Cheyenne Butler. Post-match comments indicated the conference might reschedule to District Match and not tell CAC about it!!!! Great job ladies; proud of you!
As games pick up, don’t forget the Season Ticket available for Adults and non-CAC students. The Adult card is $125; the non-CAC student version is $50. Purchase will allow entry to all regular season, home events for all teams, all sports. It is a bargain and so convenient for use to you “regular fans.” They may be purchased in the main office or at the gate at most events. Give it some serious thought.
That’s about it for the week leading into a 3-day weekend. Hope to see you at some events. Drop by for a visit or give us a shout if we may be of help. Thank you for your attention and support; we couldn’t do it without you!
