It was a very busy weekend for the Bowie High School Band as they competed in solo and ensemble contests and the drumline took part in its first indoor competition.
Director German Torres said they took 42 students to Sanger on Saturday with 29 advancing to the state solo and ensemble contest in May.
“So many more students earned a division one on the solos as well; to say we are proud would be an understatement. Awesome job to these young ladies and gentlemen,” said the director.
The following students are state-bound after receiving a division one: Raquel Cole, Michelle Gonzalez, Vander Malone, Traycee Stewart, Tyler Malone, Austin Weber and Steven Esquivel.

Donkey basketball event coming to Forestburg

Published

on

New rodeo stars will be born during the wild and crazy “Dairyland Donkey Basketball Show” at the Forestburg ISD school gym on March 2.
A meal of pulled pork sandwiches or all beef hot dogs will be available starting at 6 p.m. and the zany games will begin at 7 p.m.
It’s basketball played on real, live donkeys and it will be wilder than a rodeo and funnier than a circus. All local players will be riding, so come out and see someone you may know try to ride a donkey and play basketball at the same time. It is a thrill a minute, a spill a minute. Laugh as you’ve never laughed before at the wild and crazy Donkey Basketball show.
This fun-filled event is sponsored by the Forestburg Independent School District Education Foundation. All proceeds will be used to fund scholarships for local high school seniors and grants to local teachers. There will be three donkey basketball games and pictures on the donkeys for kids up to age 12.
Advance tickets can be purchased from members of the Foundation, at the school, at the Forestburg Store or Tony’s Produce. Presale tickets are $7 for ages 6 and up. Tickets at the door are $10 for ages 6 and up.
