Do Your Kids Want to Play Basketball? Fayetteville is the Winning Place!

I’m a little late with this post, but we had an extraordinary event happen last month. There was a lot of celebratory noise coming from Fayetteville -- because of the high school basketball champions – two of them!

That’s right, both the Fayetteville High School boys and girls basketball teams became the new state champions. And not only that, they each went undefeated for the entire season.

The Lady Bulldogs team went 32-0 for the season and won the class 7-A Arkansas State Championship title by a 72-61 win over North Little Rock. (7A is the highest classification.)

Just a short two hours later, the Bulldogs (boys) capped their 30-0 season by a 40-34 victory over Rogers to win their 7A Championship title.

It’s not the first time a high school has won both boys and girls titles in the same season but for both teams to go undefeated and cap it off with the title of champion is almost unheard of. It is a first in Arkansas and may even be the first in the country.

I just want to say Congratulations (even if a little late)! Way to go!
