Salome had its annual Dick Wick Hall parade on Oct. 12 to celebrate the founding of the town. Many students from Salome High School attended, some were in the high school’s float which represented our clubs and other organizations: NHS, Student Council, FBLA, Green Crew, Art Club and Lettermen’s. We also had students involved in 4-H on the McMullen Valley 4-H club float. After the parade, there was a dinner held at the Salome Lions Club, where many students could be spotted hanging out with friends or eating with their families.
Moving from the community to school sports, the Volleyball girls went into their next game against Anthem Prep, on Oct. 18, with a record of six wins, five losses. They round out the season with four more games. Their last home matches were on Oct.18 and Oct. 22. These two matches added another win and another loss to their record. The ladies had a particularly exciting match on Oct. 11 against the Bagdad Sultans. Bagdad came out strong and won the first two sets, but the Frogs made a strong come back and won the last three sets, winning the match. The girls are on track to make it to the 1A West Regional Championship. Their first regional game will be Nov. 1.
The football season has been going well. Mr. McCarty, the head coach, summed up the season so far: “They’re preparing well and working hard. We’re definitely making it to playoffs, which will be determined Friday, Oct. 18. We’re gonna have a home playoff game, which will be awesome for the community!” The first playoff game of the season will be Nov. 1 at the Salome High School football field! The frogs did indeed go on to win that October 18th game and earned a bye in the first round of the state playoffs.
