The Road to 31


Jake Bruton

The Artesia Bulldogs are getting ready to compete for their 31st state championship. Since their first state championship in 1951 they have won 29 more. They are in the tenth seat going up against the Santa Fe Capitals. They will be heading to Santa Fe and will be playing at 7 p.m.. Go and support them as they play to keep playing in their bracket tournament.

When Head Coach Rex Henderson was asked about how he feels playing in Santa Fe against Capital he responded with “It’s exciting to go some place new and play someone who you haven’t played against”. He believes that the Bulldogs need to be “more consistent” to not have a problem. The one thing he is worried about is the running back for capital saying ” They have one of the best running backs in the state and they do good getting him the ball.” Coach Henderson does not believe that the trip will do anything to the Artesia Bulldogs in their competitive spirit.

The Bulldogs have played with their hearts all year. They will need your help to take down the Capitals in Santa Fe on November the 8th at 7:00 p.m. Show up and get loud they need all the cheers they can get.
