Cardington football and cheerleaders hold pie auction


The Cardington-Lincoln High School 2017 football season officially kicked off when the annual inner squad scrimmage and pie auction was held Aug. 5.

The scrimmage was held in the morning with fans receiving doughnuts donated by friends and parents of the squad. All returned to the school that evening to share a carry-in dinner and players and cheerleaders were introduced during the pie auction which followed the dinner.

Forty one pies were baked by the football team members and 20 by the cheerleaders. The team raised $6,817 and the cheerleaders raised $2,890. The highest pie bid was $1,000 from A1 Concrete Leveling, Inc. (Ron Nichols) for the pie, a vanilla cream puff pie, baked by Tristan Nichols, a sophomore football player. All money raised will fund the purchase of football equipment, uniforms, and meals for the team and cheerleaders prior to Friday night games.

Beau Wolford is the first year head coach. Assistant coaches are Terry Lichtenberg, Jake Williams, Tod Brininger, Andy Ratliff, Shane Chapman and Josh Wright.

Wolford and Lori Vance, cheerleader advisor, served as emcees for the evening. Auctioneer Wes Wigton donated his service as the host auctioneer for this auction.
