AMARILLO-No offense to the Lamesa Golden Tornadoes, but on Tuesday evening the Borger Lady Bulldogs made getting the win in the 3A Bi-District playoff round look easy in three games, 25-12, 25-16, 25-20, at Amarillo High School.
In each of the games, Lamesa was able to keep the score close early on. However, the Lady Bulldogs proved to be too strong at the net and were able to pull away in each game.
Tonight, the Frank Phillips College Lady Plainsmen basketball team will tip off the 2011-12 season in Colorado taking on Trinidad State College.
The Lady Plainsmen are coming off a tough 4-25 campaign last season, but there is a lot of optimism entering this year, thanks to six returning players and some new size to the team.
On Friday night, the Frank Phillips College Plainsmen open the 2011-12 basketball season hosting Lubbock Christian JV at 7:00 p.m. at the BCAC.
Look for the season preview on the Plainsmen later this week in the Borger News Herald.
Tomorrow night, the Borger Lady Bulldogs will take on the Lamesa Golden Tornadoes in the 3A Bi-District playoffs at Amarillo High starting at 7:00 p.m.
The Lady Bulldogs find themselves in a similar situation as last year, by entering the playoffs as the districtâ€™s third seed, yet able to make a nice run that ended in the Regional Semi-Finals.
After being picked to finish last in the WJCAC at the start of the season, the Frank Phillips College Lady Plainsmen proved the experts on wrong by qualifying for the West Region V Tournament without the use of any tiebreaker with a four game win over Clarendon College on Saturday afternoon 22-25, 25-17, 25-23, 25-14.
The West Region V Tournament will take place on Saturday, featuring the Lady Plainsmen opening against Midland College, while NMMI will take on Western Texas College in the other semi-final.
The past two years, the Borger Boys Cross Country team seem to fall just short of beating Perryton in various meets in the season but came up with the win when it counted the most.
That was the case again on Friday, as the Borger Bulldog Varisty Boys Cross Country team won itâ€™s third consecutive District 1-3A title edging out the Perryton Rangers by one point. It was Borgerâ€™s first victory over Perryton this season. Borger placed itâ€™s top five runners in the top ten in order to win the title.
DALHART-On Friday night, the Borger Bulldogs overcame two early turnovers and 120 yards in penalties and scored 13 unanswered fourth quarter points to get the 20-19 win over the Dalhart Golden Wolves in District 1-3A action.
The Bulldogsâ€™ defense shut down the Wolves in the fourth quarter, limiting them to just two yards of total offense. The Bulldogsâ€™ offense responded with senior running back Ty Brown scoring two touchdowns in the final six minutes to get the win and keep the team undefeated in district play.
On Friday evening, the Sanford-Fritch Eagles secured second place in District 1-2A Division II by defeating Spearman 42-14 in Fritch.

Tomorrow night, the 3A â€śKing of the Texas Panhandleâ€ť will be determined when the Borger Bulldogs travel north to take on the Dalhart Golden Wolves in a big District 1-3A showdown.
Both the Bulldogs and Wolves are coming off impressive district opener wins, setting the stage for what should ultimately decide who will win the District 1-3A title.
The Bulldogs looked impressive last week in their 31-6 win over the Pampa Harvesters.
Tomorrow night the Sanford-Fritch Eagles will host the Spearman Lynx in their regular season finale in Fritch.
The game will be a key battle in determining playoff seeding as the two teams enter the game battling for second place with both suffering just one district loss from the hands of Abernathy.
Last Friday evening, Abernathy gave the Eagles their first district loss over the past two seasons by scoring 13 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to get the 28-13 win.
