June 6, 2012

On Tuesday afternoon, Borger ISD Superintendent Chance Welch informed the Borger News Herald that Steve Ribera is resigning as the head baseball coach at Borger High School in order to take a similar position at Lubbock High School.

Ribera replaces Freddie Tobias, who resigned on May 14 after six seasons with the Westerners.

WOODROW — The final play of the Greater West Texas Baseball Coaches Association Class 3A-4A all-star game, played Sunday at Cooper, certainly won’t be stored among baseball’s greatest highlights.
A simple putout at first base to end a lopsided exhibition game isn’t the sort of sequence that will have Cooperstown calling to collect the details. But then you discover the story of the player who grasped that final, seemingly meaningless, out in his glove, and the play becomes pretty incredible after all.

Successful camp a positive step for Plainsmen basketball program

May 31, 2012

Learning how to shoot with the left hand, handling the ball with more confidence and learning how to work with others as part of a team are just a couple of the skills campers are learning this week at the Frank Phillips College Boys Basketball Camp at the BCAC.
The FPC Men’s Basketball program has passed on running a camp in recent years, due to low turnout and transition between coaches. So when FPC Head Men’s Basketball Coach Chris Hackett made plans to host a camp this year, there was some uncertainty on what kind of response there would be.

Frank Phillips College Plainsmen add four players to 2012-13 roster

May 30, 2012

On Thursday, Frank Phillips College Plainsmen Head Basketball Coach Chris Hackett announced the signing of four players to his roster for the 2012-13 season.
Hackett will enter the fall with the luxury of having seven players returning from last year’s squad. Each of the seven contributed greatly to the team, but of the seven, Demetris LaFontant and Alex Zivkovic are the only ones returning with post experience in the paint.
Hopefully, the announced signings by Hackett will provide depth under the basket with the signing of 6-9 Juri Todorovic, 6-7 Ke’Andre Stanton, and 6-7 Reger Baker.
