Way to go, Bulldogs

What a joy it was for my wife and me to be at the Tacoma Dome on Saturday and watch the Montesano Bulldogs win the 1A state football championship.

We don’t live in Montesano but were there because we really enjoy watching high school football and supporting our local students.

It was a little scary in the first quarter — those Royal players were big guys and very well-coached but the Bulldogs did not falter in the face of adversity. They persevered and came back with a vengeance, playing together as a team and listening as their coaches adjusted to what the Royals were throwing at them.

It was one of the most enjoyable games we have watched in a long time.

And to add icing to the cake, the Montesano team was awarded the scholastic award, with an average of over 3.5 grade point average for the team.

Way to go, Bulldogs. Hope to see you at the Tacoma Dome again next year.
