Decatur Girls & Boys Soccer Teams Lose Semi-Final Matches

bulldogThis news a bit old to those in-the-know, but I wanted to close this loop, since someone asked me recently what happened in the Decatur High Boys & Girls Soccer semi-final matches last week.

Michael posted this final update on Next Door

As I have posted several notices recently about Decatur High soccer, I want to post one final update. Sadly, both the girls and the boys lost in their semi-final matches. The girls lost 6-1 to a strong Westminster team on Tuesday. The boys lost to Calhoun High School in a heartbreaking shootout on Thursday. Obviously, both teams had impressive seasons, each finishing as one of the top four teams in the state in their classification. Nice run, Bulldogs. Thank you for an exciting soccer season. We look forward to another one next year!

What a great run by Decatur High’s Boys and Girls Soccer teams this year!

Bulldogs Unite at DHS Spiritfest on October 16th

SPIRITFEST POSTER 2009 smaller size

From Jim Newbury…

Plan to join the crowd of Bulldog Fans at SpiritFest 2009! We will gather at the promenade outside the new gymnasium (you can enter from McDonough or Commerce Streets) at 6:00. There will be fight songs, cheering, and lots of prizes from “Spike” the DHS Bulldog himself. So come out and get fired up before DHS takes on Westminster at 7:30.

Decatur High's New Stadium Opens Tonight

As Next Stop…Decatur notes, the new DHS stadium gets christened tonight with its first football game as the Decatur Bulldogs take on the Hillgrove Hawks.  The game starts at 7:30pm, but a Pep Rally and Grand Opening Ceremony precede kickoff, starting at 5:30p.

According to the AJC, the city expects a big turnout.  Tickets are $5 for student, $7 general admission, and $10 for reserved seats.

Oh, and if you haven’t yet seen Decatur edTV’s interview with Decatur High Athletic Director, Carter Wilson, about what the new stadium means to DHS students and the community, I recommend taking a minute a watch it here.
