Bobcats' hearts still beat strong in Hemingford

Posted: Updated:

You can still hear the roar of the Bobcats community in Hemingford even after a close loss in the state championship football game Monday.

Superintendent Casper Ningen says for the past month and a half the community has been filled with energy and pride.

He says initially the community was a little disappointed by Monday's loss but has always been full of energy just as much as the team on the field.

In the past weeks, Ningen says residents came together to bring food to the football players, paid for students to attend games and even cooked meals.

He says despite the final result, people have supported and will continue to support all student-athletes in Hemingford.

"These are parents, grandparents, neighbors and sometimes alumni in Arizona and New Mexico that listened on the radio or over the Internet. Cheered along with us I guess. A woman wrote that she was slapping the table at her coffee shop and customers wandered what was going. But the mood is really upbeat."

Ningen says Monday's game was great exposure to show the state how great the people of Hemingford are.
