The Lady Diamondbacks played at 6:30 p.m., and the Diamondback’s game began at 8:00 p.m.  The starters of this game were Juan Bernal, Jonathan Almanza, Nick Wright, Joel Bernal, and Noah Chabot.

During the first half of the game, our boys scored a total of 19 points.  By the end of the boy’s game, we had a total of 43 points.

Senior Juan Bernal and senior Jonathan Almanza each scored a total of 13 points during the game.  Also, senior Nick Wright scored 10 points, senior Brandin Rodriguez scored 5, and junior Joel Bernal scored 2 points.

The First Pep Rally of the Season

By Delaney Gobeille

     On Tuesday, November 2, the Olustee-Eldorado Varsity Cheerleaders held a pep rally to pump up the crowd for the first high school game of the season.  The cheerleaders included: Rhey’lyn Sanders (captain), Madison Garcia, Delaney Gobeille, Kenzie Richie, Jaslyn Pollock, and Harmony Birmingham.

    The pep rally started with the cheerleaders coming out and doing four different chants to get the crowd fired up.  After that, Ms. Reuter, Ms. Haynie, Ms. Jones, Ms. Kays, Mrs. Adams, and Mrs. Wall played a round of musical chairs with a playlist the cheerleaders created.  Mrs. Wall and Ms. Jones were the last two standing, with Mrs. Wall ultimately winning.

    After the intense game of musical chairs, the cheerleaders were back at it again with the class yells.  The class yells were a success, with fifth grade and the seniors winning the spirit sticks for their participation. 

    Next was a demonstration from the third grade little dribblers.  They bounced the ball, dribbled it, and passed it to one another.  Then Coach Roberts talked about her players and introduced the elementary teams, and the junior high and high school girls’ teams.  She also introduced the cheerleaders before they went out for their final cheer.  Coach Fixico also introduced his junior high and high school boys’ teams. 

In the end, the cheerleaders did one more cheer and threw candy at the crowd to close the pep rally. We hope the next pep rally will be just as good as this one!
