On Friday, senior Jâ€™Cee Pool became the first Borger High School Lady Bulldog to ever win a championship at the state track and field meet, a feat longtime Borger Track Coach Jeep Webb confirmed shortly after Pool won the 3A Girls Discus with a throw of 140-00. On her thoughts of Pool winning the state title, Borger Head Girls Track Coach Leslie Young recalled, â€ťWe knew going to Austin that Jâ€™cee could medal, she just had to compete and thatâ€™s exactly what she did. She didnâ€™t go out and win it on her first throw, she didnâ€™t take the lead until the first throw of the finals.
