State Senate to Honor Montesano Bulldog Football Team
Senators Jim Hargrove of Hoquiam Brian Hatfield of Raymond will sponsor a Senate resolution on February 1st honoring the 1A champion Montesano Bulldogs football team.

After falling behind 21 to 10 in the first half the Bulldogs scored 26 straight points to hold on at the Tacoma Dome. Montesano won the 1A State Championship 43-28 against the Royal Knights.
In addition to winning on the field, the Bulldogs were winners in the classroom, compiling a team grade point average of 3.5 to win the 1A Football Academic Championship.
