The South Pemiscot High School cheerleaders did an excellent job teaching the first and second grade students their cheer routine.

South Pemiscot High School’s annual Black and Gold Night, also known as “Bulldog Madness”, was a great success this year, says one of the event's primary organizers, Amber Robertson. "I would like to say thank you to all the parents that allowed the high school cheerleaders to work with their children this week," she said. "I would love to see the community come out and help the cheerleaders cheer our teams to victory. It's gonna be a great season!"

This year’s Black and Gold Night began at 6 p.m. Friday, Nov. 17, as Bulldog fans filled the high school gymnasium to capacity, making for an energetic and rather loud night of family entertainment. For admission to the event, fans were asked to bring one canned food item or one dollar, all of which will be donated to the C.D.H.S. Food Pantry in Steele.

One of the surprise highlights of the evening was a pie in the face contest, featuring juniors. After the money was tallied, Colton Golden was the winner … or loser.

As for some of the other highlights of the evening, Mr. Alan Jackson and the high school band were sounding great and performing like the award-winning marching band they are. Additionally, the high school cheerleaders were outstanding, and both majorette teams were excellent as well. Furthermore, the high school flag line was featured in the evening's lineup and did a great job as well.

Of course, the highlight of the evening was, without a doubt, the preschool through sixth-grade cheerleaders. The high school cheerleaders prepared the younger ones very well, and all their routines were "spot on!"

And, last but certainly not least, the community was introduced to this year’s basketball teams. The boys and girls teams are loaded with talent, so it should be a great basketball season at South Pemiscot High School. See you at the games!
