From Coach Grider: I would like to invite everyone to come to the Our Space Room in the BCAC at noon on Monday, January 21st, to join the softball staff and current players in welcoming one of our 2013 recruits, Lesa Mackenzie Murphy, as she signs her National Letter of Intent to play softball and attend Frank Phillips College starting next fall.

Thanks!

The Lady Plainsmen claimed a ten point victory, while the Plainsmen came up two points shy in a conference matchup on Saturday in Borger.
The ladies were up first in what would be a close contest throughout the first half. Rodriguez, Sullivan, and Thomas all have field goals early for FPC. Good defense forces WTC to be called for a shot clock violation, and Thomas also has a block on the defensive end.
It's always nice to go into rival Pampa's gym and win. Unfortunately for the Bulldogs, that would not happen in the district matchup on Friday night.
The ladies were up first in what turned out to be a close game.
Pampa took a quick 5-0 lead on the Lady Bulldogs. Wood had some solid rebounds under the basket for Borger and also two quick jumpers for their first scores. Loftis has a shot blocked, but Wood is there to put it in for two. Francis hits a three to tie the game up at 11. Pampa scores six straight to end the quarter.
Odessa College rolled over the Frank Phillips teams on Thursday night in an NJCAA matchup, handing them their first loss early in conference play.
The Lady Plainsmen jumped out to a 7-2 lead early, with five points from Bohlar and two from Smith. Bohlar was hot early and hit another three off of a Lytle screen. Odessa answered with a three of their own. Lytle hits two inside, and Smith goes coast-to-coast for FPC, but Odessa had an answer for both field goals.
