High school notebook: Little Axe plans benefit for Bridge Creek

by Scott Wright and Jacob Unruh Published: August 19, 2014

The Little Axe cheerleaders are planning a spaghetti supper prior to the football scrimmage between Little Axe, Bridge Creek and Southeast at Little Axe on Thursday night.

The dinner will begin at 5 p.m., with proceeds going to the Bridge Creek football program. The team is still in the process of recovering from vandalism inside its fieldhouse that ruined or damaged thousands of dollars worth of equipment, electronics and other items.

Just getting on the field for practice has been a challenge over the last 10 days.

“We don’t have everything yet, but we have enough to get the kids out there without putting anybody in a 10-year-old helmet,” coach Greg Wallis said. “Cleanup is still continuing, but we just keep moving forward.”

On Saturday, Bridge Creek will host its annual Meet the Bobcats photo day at the field, which will include a live auction of a variety of things, like autographed memorabilia from OU players and other items.
