In past several years the Borger Lady Bulldogs have taken part in a triangular with the Hereford Lady Whitefaces and the Amarillo River Road Wildcats in Amarillo. In the triangular, the Lady Bulldogs historically left Amarillo getting a win over River Road, while having a sense of a moral victory if they were able to play Hereford tough, despite getting the loss in the match.
Last night history changed as the Lady Bulldogs left River Road High School as the â€śQueens of the Triangularâ€ť beating both Hereford and River Road in straight sets due to a great team effort throughout the evening.

Game four was a close, back and forth battle, but the Lady Eagles fell to Friona 19-25.

Now is the time to adopt a new furry family member.
The Borger Animal Control constantly receives animals needing good homes. Animal Control Director Betsy Parks stated they are constantly receiving animals at the shelter. Last year, the shelter received 691 dogs and 409 cats. 44 percent of those animals are either sent back to their owners or adopted out, while the other percentage of animals are euthanized.
Adoptability is all determined on whether the shelter has space, the age of the animal, health, and whether the animal is aggressive.
