Thursday May 6 Red River Junior high battled Natchitoches Lab and played a great game coming out with a win 5-4. Next game is May 10th. Great job Bulldogs keep it up!
Following the games, Coach Chris Cunningham said, “I’m really proud of our boys effort tonight. We showed a lot of courage and grit. We never flinched during adversity. When it starts to really matter to the players as much as it does to the coaches, it’s the start of something special. That all it takes to jumpstart a program into a winning culture. When you are surrounded by good people, the sky is the limit. I know we got a long way to go but we are on the right track if we remain unselfish and continue to work.”
Cunningham added, “When I interviewed at Red River last July, the question was asked, “Why Red River? Why do you want to come here?” My answer was this, ‘I want to build something and be a part of something that is special.’ That is what we have if we remain humble and keep working. Good job Dawgs!!”
