2023; Celebrating 100 Years of the Sand Lizards

It was the fall of 1923 when the phrase, "Sand Lizards" was first spoken to describe the DHS football team. It was a name that stuck and has become a unique mascot in the US. While the history of Dardanelle High started before 1923, it was the fall of 1923 that earned our school this special mascot.
