Borger High School
Prior to his arrival in 2009, the Borger Bulldog football team had endured a couple of hard years on the field and was a football program that had not seen a district title since 1981.
Under the leadership of Rusty Purser, the Borger Bulldogs improved greatly on the field, which includes earning a share of the 1-3A District title in 2009, followed by claiming the title outright this season with a perfect 3-0 mark in district play.
PLAINVIEW-In three different innings, the Borger Bulldogs loaded the bases with opportunities to have big innings, but the team managed to get just one run across home plate through five innings of play.
But in the other dugout, the Lubbock Cooper Pirates used a big fourth inning to score nine runs on their way to defeating Borger 12-1 in game one of the best-of-three 3A Regional Quarterfinal Playoff Series at Wayland Baptist in Plainview.
