Frank Phillips College Menâ€™s Basketball Coach Chris Hackett announced the signing of three more players before the fall semester got underway.
All three players give the Plainsmen depth underneath the basket and are expected to make an immediate impact in the upcoming season.
The three new players are 6â€™8 center Demetris Lafontant of Kissimmee, Fla.; 6â€™7 forward Patrick Elledge of Pearland; and 6â€™5 forward Kris Harris of Clinton, Md.
Just three days separated the last time the Borger Lady Bulldogs and the Amarillo Highland Park Lady Hornets met on the volleyball court. The Tuesday match meant the two teams would be fresh on each otherâ€™s minds.
On Saturday, the Lady Hornets got the upper hand by defeating the Lady Bulldogs in straight sets in the semifinals of the Sanford-Fritch Tournament before going on to win the tournament.
Fortunately, the Lady Bulldogs came out as the more aggressive team on Tuesday, getting the win in straight sets 25-19, 25-23, 25-17.
On Tuesday evening, the Sanford-Fritch Lady Eagles came out playing with the momentum from winning second place this past weekend in the Sanford-Fritch Tournament to defeat Holy Cross.
The Lady Eagles had strong serving and solid hits from seniors Summer Tubbs, Jacy Judd, Mariah Cumings and Mandi West.
The Lady Eagles swept Holy Cross in three games by scores of 25-11, 25-17, 25-15.
Hopefully, the ladies will continue to work hard and play as a team. A rematch with Borger set for Saturday and will definitely be a good Hutchinson County battle.
SF JV won 25-4 and 25-17
