After too many close games of coming out on the losing end the past couple of years, the Borger Bulldogs snapped a losing streak to Perryton Rangers that dated back to 2007 by continuing to flex their muscles in hitting four homeruns on their way to a 11-5 win at Huber Park on Tuesday evening.
To say the Bulldog bats have been hot lately could be considered an understatement as the team has sent 13 balls over the fence in their past three district contests.
Over the past two weeks, the Borger Lady Bulldogs have done a good job of playing well in District 1-3A play, winning two of their last three going into yesterday.
The solid play continued as Borger was able to get the big win over the Perryton Rangerettes, 12-6, to improve to 18-15 overall while sitting alone in second place in the District 1-3A standings with a 3-3 mark.
The whole team did a good job at the plate on Tuesday evening that included an inside-the-park homerun by senior Brittany Thomas.
West Texas High sophomore Nathan Forrest finshed in second place overall in the District 7-1A Tournament shooting a two round total of 77-79-156.
The West Texas High boys finished the tournament in third place overall with a team score of 780 finishing behind Canadian, who had two teams take first and second place.
Forrest will next compete in the 1A Region I Tournament in Lubbock starting on Monday.
