The Antlers Bearcats celebrated homecoming last week as they played a conference game at home against the Marietta Indians. The festivities kicked-off with the introductions of the 2011-2012 Homecoming Court. After introductions, Hannah Leyba was crowned the 2011-2012 Antlers High School Homecoming Queen. Hannah was escorted by quarterback, Bryce Martin.
On Friday, October 7, 2011 local fire departments responded to a large grass fire that was burning about 4 miles east of Antlers on HWY 3. The fire dominated the south side of the road, tearing through trees and fields, with smoke that could be seen from inside city limits. With the strong winds, many were worried that the fire would be pushed into Antlers or shift and cross the highway. On Sunday morning, October 9, 2011 the fire was still smoldering but was not spreading or causing anymore damage, that could be seen from the roadway.
