It was a disappointing end to the football season with the Bison suffering a 16-62 loss to the Davenport Bulldogs in the quarterfinals of the Class B playoff. Despite the loss, the Geary Schools family and fans are proud of the Bison football team for their hard work and determination in achieving a 10-2 season record and qualifying for the Class B playoff quarterfinals. The Bison defeated Turpin Nov. 13 in the first round of playoffs. In related playoff news, the previous #1 ranked Class B team, Alex, lost to Weleetka, 8-28, in the quarterfinals.
