Borger tops Perryton to clinch the final District 1-3A playoff spot
On Tuesday evening, the Perryton Rangerettes and the Borger Lady Bulldogs entered Tex Hanna Gym ready to give it all they had in order to clinch the final District 1-3A playoff spot.
The teams entered with identical 1-7 district marks and knew the scenario was simple. Win and you clinch a playoff berth or lose and start thinking about basketball.

Longtime Borger resident Vance Brown has used some of his time over the past ten years to tear down pallets to make wonderful creations.
Within the past two months, one of his newest hobbies he has just picked up involves making wishing wells from pallets.
â€śIt all started with my wife wanting a wishing well. So, I torn down a pallet and made her one and have made them since.â€ť he states.
Brown sells his creations at the customerâ€™s price.
â€śIf people want to buy them I let them make the offer.â€ť he said.
