Once again, the ZHS Bulldogs came out of top on Friday night with a win against the Anclote Sharks by a score of 51 – 16. This coming Friday night is Homecoming on October 21st. In addition to a great game and a fun time to get together with family and friends we will get to check out the Bulldog band’s “LIGHTS OUT” show after the game. This always proves to be an awesome show. I would anticipate that the stands will be packed so try and get out a little early.
