We hope you had fun!

Despite the rain, Saturday’s Hornets picnic in Vienna Park was a good time! Players, cheerleaders and their families enjoyed pizza, watermelon, drinks and great company. Congratulations to cheerleader Phoebe Potter – winner of the watermelon eating contest. Thank you for your donations of pop and water for the concession stand.

Here are a few pictures from the picnic:

Thank you, also, to all who sold their TV raffle tickets. We will draw the winning ticket during today’s Senior game at half time. Good luck, everyone!

Reminder: today’s games will be played at the BHS practice field behind the softball diamonds. Please park at the high school. Bring lawn chairs and your Hornets spirit!

Hornets Tailgate a Success!

Last night’s tailgate party at the Bedford High School game was another great success! The kids had a blast welcoming the varsity team onto the field and, despite Bedford’s loss, it was a kickin’ start to the Hornets football season.

Thank you to all the families for your donations of food and to the Hornets Boosters for pulling it all together for us.

Important Cheerleader Updates!

This week:
Sunday, August 28, is our final dancing day with Hank. We will take Labor Day Sunday off and get back with you in regards to continuing our tumbling sessions at Vibe.

Thursday, Sept 1, is cheer practice at 6:30 PM. We need everyone there as we only have one more scheduled practice before our first game. This is our last practice before tailgating at the high school game. We will be handing out uniforms and briefs at this practice. The practice time is being changed to 6:30 PM due to the amount of mosquitoes that we have encountered at the end of our later practices. Coach Jen will be initiating the practice with our stretches, chants and jumps. I am working until 7 PM and will arrive at practice shortly after. Then we can split off into groups to finish up our halftime routines and show them to the other squads this night.

I understand that everyone is trying to get all of their family events in before the end of summer, as I am as well, but please do not schedule these things for Thursday. We have made it a priority to be there and would appreciate it if you would as well.

Friday, September 2, is tailgating at the high school for the varsity football game. We will be tailgating behind the junior high building in the parking lot to cook out. Please check earlier posts on the Hornets website for more details and to see what you need to bring to the festivities. (Bring chairs if you would like to sit while eating.) We will walk with the girls into the game and go out on the field. Please, please…if you do not plan on staying for the game, pick up your cheerleader outside of the main ticket gate after the players run onto the field. It is difficult to keep them all together afterwards to get them back to the parking lot.

I will be taking a head count at practice on Thursday to see how many girls will be taking part in the varsity game activities next Friday.

Thanks for all of your patience with us. The girls are doing a great job and I am looking forward to our games starting up!!

Youth Night Tailgate Party at BHS Scheduled for September 2

Each year, Bedford High School hosts a Youth Night at one of their home games. This year’s event is scheduled for Friday, September 2, at the Bedford vs. Central Catholic game. The game is at the Bedford Community Stadium at 7 PM.

At BHS Youth Night, Bedford youth football teams and cheerleaders are invited onto the field to form a tunnel for the BHS football players to run through at the beginning of the game. Hornets football players are asked to wear their game day jerseys and cheerleaders are asked to wear their cheer uniform. They will be admitted free to the game and may stay to cheer on the Mules with family and teammates. (Family members will need to pay the standard game admission price.)

The Hornets Boosters will kick off this great night with a Tailgate Party! Please join us at 5:30 PM behind the junior high for food and fun!

Each Hornet is asked to donate items for the Tailgate Party:
Senior Football Players – 1 pack of hotdogs + 1 pack of hotdog buns

Mods Football Players – 1 variety pack/box of single-serving size bags of chips
Senior Cheerleaders – 1 variety pack/box of single-serving size bags of chips
