5th Grade Football Cardinals fall short -- What a game! Cardinals were up 7-6 with seconds left on the clock when the Bulldogs had a crazy lateral pass that was dropped, recovered and run back for a touch down with 0:00 on the clock. These boys left it all on the field and the Cardinal community should be proud to have them has their INFC 5th grade runners-up with a final record of 12-1 for 2012. I hope to get a few pics to you tomorrow. Thanks for all your support. ~ Danielle, proud mom of #64 (Sat. 11/10/2012)

And if I don't get them done this evening it will likely be Saturday as my Friday calendar is filling up with CEF grant check presentations, playoff football sendoffs, and the McAlester trip & game which will keep me away from my computer. -- Ted Wright 4:15pm Thursday 11/8/2012
