Fairfield heads to the playoffs in Palestine Thursday night where they will compete against Wills Point High School after winning the battle of the Eagles in Salado last week. The final score of last week’s game was a rather close 28-15, bringing their final win-loss in district to 8-2.

Because of stadiums either closing or already having games scheduled on Friday night, the teams will face each other a day earlier at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 15.

Coached by Greg Cranfill, the Wills Point Tigers’ win-loss record is at 5-4.

After attending a record 457 consecutive football games, Fairfield High School Principal Von Wade was awarded Friday night for his perfect attendance by six student representatives.  Wade was also awarded by the FHS cheerleaders at the Homecoming Pep Rally for attending 42 consecutive Homecoming Pep Rallies from 1977-2018.

After taking a win during last week’s Homecoming game against Connally, Fairfield Eagles will face the Robinson Rockets Friday, Nov. 6, at the Robinson stadium. The Eagles beat the Connally Cougars Friday night 44-9, tying Fairfield’s win-loss record in District to 2-2.

“Robinson is 3-1 in district,” Head Coach John Bachtel said. “They had a big overtime win against Mexia last week. They are always explosive on offense. This year they are playing well on defense. The front four they have is causing opponents a lot of trouble.”

While Robinson’s overall score is 5-3, the team currently holds only one loss in district, making their record 3-1.

Craddick’s classes held this year’s Mad Hatter party on October 5. The skills developed for this party will apply to both social and private settings.

As heavy rain threatened, the Eagles lined up for the district cross country meet on their own course. After months of training and hours of anticipation, the runners gave the district meet their all and secured their place at the regional meet.

The varsity boys placed second as a team, and for the ninth year in a row, the varsity girls earned the title of District Champs. Following a successful District meet on Oct. 9 in Fairfield, both teams will travel to Huntsville to compete in the Regional meet on Oct. 22.  The only JV boy to place was Leon Rosales, finishing 21st with a time of 20:50.35.
