Friday afternoon old district foes tangled at Huber Park with the Lubbock Estacado Matadors in town to take on the Borger Bulldogs in non-district baseball action.
The Matadors have been one of the better 3A baseball programs in West Texas over the past couple of years and would be a good challenge for the Bulldogs as they get closer to District 1-3A play.
Fridayâ€™s contest would be a tight one with neither team pulling away to more than a one run lead. However the Matadors would get the one run they needed in the top of the eighth inning to leave Borger with the 6-5 win.
Stinnett EMS will be hosting the 11th Annual Computer Concepts MGMT Shotmaker Tournament.
All funds provided for this tournament will go to the Stinnett EMS to provide training and essential equipment that is needed.
The tournament will be held on April 16, 2011, at the Phillips Municipal Golf Course in Borger. Computer Concepts MGMT is still committed as the gold sponsor this year and there are sponsorship opportunities at the silver and bronze levels. The EMS still needs all the sponsorship it can get.
Various local citizens took part in a weather spottersâ€™ class Thursday evening at the Fritch City Annex. Top left, special speaker for the class was Justyn Jackson, meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Amarillo.
The Borger Police Department recently made some changes in its fleet, ones that will continue to help the department put the safety of citizens first.
According to its annual report, last year the department looked hard at its vehicle fleet to determine what (if any) changes needed to be made. Things that were examined included appearance, maintenance, number of vehicles, how they were utilized, cost, and fuel consumption.

On Wednesday, the two teams would split the series and on Thursday the teams saw the same result as the Lady Plainsmen won game one, 6-5 while Otero came out on top in game two, 6-5.

After a rough weekend in Midland, the Borger Bulldogs were ready to get back into the win column when they took on the Amarillo River Road Wildcats in a doubleheader at Huber Park on Wednesday afternoon.
The Bulldogs didnâ€™t put together a pretty performance, which included committing a combined 12 errors in the two games. However, the home team did enough to pull out a pair of 11-10 wins to improve to 8-8-1 on the season.
