The Frank Phillips College softball team recently braved the cold weather to help a great cause. Earlier this month, the team spent the afternoon in front of the United Supermarket in Borger ringing bells for the Salvation Armyâ€™s Christmas Charity.
â€śThe â€śmiracleâ€ť of Christmas is repeated over and over again through the joy of caring and sharing. The traditional red kettle is an integral part of the Christmas scene, with millions of dollars donated each year to aid needy families, seniors, and the homeless, in keeping with the spirit of the season.
On Thursday evening, Borger senior Dustin Clark verbally committed to play football for the University of North Texas.
Clark had an impressive football career for the Borger Bulldogs as a defensive end where he was selected as the District 1-3A Defensive MVP and earned Second Team All-State honors by the Associated Press earlier this week.
Due to his impressive play, Clark had drawn interest from several division one programs, including Wyoming, Kansas, and Vanderbilt.
Clark will join a Mean Green program that went 5-7 in 2011 in Dan McCarneyâ€™s first season as head coach of the program.
West Texas High hosted the River Road Wildcats in a non-District basketball contest last night. The Comanches held the Wildcats in check the first half and had an eleven point halftime lead. River Road came back in the second half to make it a close game in the final quarter though, getting within five a couple of times. However, the Tribe kept their composure to hang on for the win 46-35. Alex Ramirez had a stellar performance for WT with 25 points, he went 7-8 at the free throw line, 9 rebounds, 7 steals, and 2 blocked shots.
From time to time in sports you will have a game where the final score doesnâ€™t tell the story on how close a game actually was. Friday night featured one of those games, when the Bushland Falcons and Borger Bulldogs squared off in an entertaining contest at Tex Hanna Gym with the Falcons getting the win 65-58.
The Bulldogs had a good night in shooting 48% on the floor. But 22 turnovers and 34 trips to the free throw for the Falcons caused the Bulldogs to play catch up most of the evening instead of potentially pulling away for a big win.
The West Texas Lady Comanches got a little taste of revenge last night as they took care of business with a win over the Lady Wildcats from River Road. The two met earlier this year with River Road getting the win 52-49. Last night, the tables were turned with the Lady Tribe coming out on top 36-29.
