Mustang Monitor – January 10th

Winter is upon us greetings,

I suppose we could have been in Minneapolis at – 6 degrees at game time.  No thank you!  Been there, done that, don’t want to again.  But, I think it is to warm a bit in the coming days.  I hope this finds you well AND warm and in support of winning teams.  We do have a busy week ahead of us.

First, some Shout Outs to some of our band folks who have received some honors and recognition for their skills. Kameron Byrd and Brittany Martin were both named to the All Region Band following auditions on Saturday.  Byrd will be the 3rd chair clarinet player; Martin will join in on her flute.  Additionally, on Thursday they will both, along with director, James Wilhite, travel to Texarkana to participate in the Four States Honor Band.  Congratulations to both and great job.  We are proud of you!

The Mustang Wrestling Squad competed in the McClellan Invitational Tournament on Saturday.  Following a day of victories, Braden Quesinberry and Jon Andrews were named Outstanding Wrestlers in their weight classes.  Great job to both and Coach Almond for the success.  There is some opportunity to view some wrestling action this week, with a home match on Thursday.  Come on out and support these hard-working student athletes.

There are also a good many basketball games this week with several on Mustang Mountain.  Check the schedule and try to join us in the warmth of Mustang Mountain for some great action.

Finally, don’t forget we face a Three Day Weekend ahead.  There will be no school on Monday, January 18, in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

For our longer range planning, rehearsals have begun in earnest on the spring play, “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.”  This musical comedy will feature a large cast of very talented students and should prove to be most entertaining.  Show dates are March 12 – 14.  More information will be forthcoming as the time draws nearer.  As in the past few years, we will have some advertising opportunities in the program.  Your support for drama activities will be highly effective and most appreciated.  Please contact me if you are interested of know of individuals or business who might be.

That’s it for this version.  We will do our best to keep you informed as things change.  You can get results by following me on Twitter, @BowTieAD.  Until the next time, thank you for your attention and support and give us a holler if we may be of assistance.
