After earning a spot in the state tournament in 2010, the brother and sister duo of senior Josh Madden and junior Abbie Madden sat on the verge on another trip to Austin when they took to the tennis court this morning in the 3A Region I Tennis Tournament Mixed-Doubles Final.

The Maddens won that district final by scores of 6-2, 6-4.
The West Texas Comanches hosted the Claude Mustangs Tuesday afternoon. The last time the two met, it was in 40 mph winds and dirt. The weather was perfect and the Comanches dealt the Mustangs their second loss to WT this year, 12-5. The Comanches are still alone in second place in the District standings.
The Tribe put a couple of runners on base in the bottom of the first, but left them stranded. Claude sent seven hitters to the plate in the first two innings and one got on with a fielding error, but the Comanches took care of business and left him on base.
After falling behind 0-5 to the Dalhart Lady Wolves, the Borger Lady Bulldogs showed a lot of heart on Tuesday evening, by battling back to tie the game 5-5 going into the seventh inning.
Unfortunately, Dalhart used two walks and two singles in the top of the seventh to bring around one run that ultimately ended the game with the 6-5 win in District 1-3A play.
On Tuesday evening the Big Red Machine continued to roll at the plate, as the Borger Bulldogs had three players, Max Lusk, Garrett Irwin and Kody Davila, send balls over the fence in their District 1-3A contest with the Dalhart Golden Wolves.
The Bulldogs jumped out on top early building a 5-0 lead after two innings. But the team experienced a little bit of a scare as Dalhart battled back to eventually take a 8-9 lead by the sixth inning.
