Join the party, send off the Bulldogs
HERMISTON — Before the Hermiston football team heads to Hillsboro to play for a state championship on Saturday, Bulldog students, fans and Hermiston community members can send the team off in style.
Hermiston High organized a send-off rally on Saturday morning at Kennison Field. Beginning at 8:30 a.m., attendees will have the option for free donuts, coffee and hot chocolate available and then at 9 a.m. the team will load the buses and start its trip west.
The Bulldog apparel store will also be open from 4-6 p.m. on Friday at Kennison Field for fans that want their last-minute Bulldog items to wear to the game.
Later in the evening, Hermiston fans that will not be able to make the trip to Hillsboro can watch the game at Maxwell Siding Event Center, 145 N. First Place. Tickets for the watch party are $20 for the first 100 individuals, which includes access to a taco bar, soups, finger food, dessert and non-alcoholic drinks.
The doors open at 5 p.m. and the game between Hermiston and Churchill starts at 6 p.m.
