GAMETIME: Underperforming Hawks still end up on top

Friday, October 16, 2009 was a long time coming for many. For Rockwall Heath High School students, both present and former, as well as faculty, it was finally the day of the 2009-2010 homecoming game. The school was alive with school spirit as the Hawks prepared to go up against the Royse City Bulldogs.
As 7:30 rolled around at the newly renovated Wilkerson Sanders stadium, the home side was nearly packed with fans cheering on the RHHS football team. Many had high hopes for the Hawks considering the Bulldogs had previously been 0-6. That in mind, the start of the game was a disappointment. The Hawks had trouble keeping the bulldogs back and were having trouble scoring themselves. They even missed three consecutive touchdown throws right before half time. Once  they returned for the second half, the Hawks did seem to get their stuff  together making for a final of 31-24. “I think we ended up doing very well,” says sophomore Nathan Romo.
Though the hawks managed to win, there was still an overall feeling that they could have done better. The Bulldogs 0-6 record had promised a landslide win for the Hawks’ homecoming that was never seen. “It was a good game in the end,” says freshman Chase Schultz. When it gets down to it, Rockwall-Heath was victorious and that is all that will be remembered.

    Hello everybody, it’s Thanksgiving Day! I’m happy with my extra day off, and I am planning to make something fun that’ll probably involve a car trip and seeing something new in Whitehall I haven’t seen yet.
    You write something new at Thanksgiving?
