This weekend, the Frank Phillips College Plainsmen baseball team will get the 2012 season underway by hosting Luna Community College out of Las Vegas N.M., in a four game series. The first of two doubleheaders will start tomorrow at noon ,with the second doubleheader taking place on Saturday with a noon start as well.
The Plainsmen Baseball program enters the season essentially with a fresh start due to having a new coaching staff and only two players returning from the 2011 team.
The Gruver Greyhounds came away from Stinnett with a win Tuesday night in a tight District contest 37-30. The game was fast paced and mostly a defensive battle. Free throws sank the Tribe in the end, with Gruver making thirteen trips to the free throw line in the second half compared to three for West Texas. The Hounds were 14/23 at the line and WT was 2/4 in the third and fourth quarters. That combined with a three point offensive production in the second quarter was the ballgame.
The West Texas Lady Comanches are still looking for a District win on the hardwood. They started the second half of loop action Tuesday night with a loss to the Gruver Lady Hounds 41-15. WT managed to hang with the Lady Hounds in the first period, trailing by just one point 7-6.
The second quarter got quickly out of hand as Gruver poured in eighteen points while the Lady Comanches two. Gruver was comfortably on top of West Texas at the half 25-8.
