The Borger Lady Bulldogs didnâ€™t have long to celebrate their 3A Bi-District playoff round win over Lamesa on Tuesday. The team has to swing back around and travel to Seminole tonight to take on the Clint Lady Lions in the 3A Area playoff round.
Borger Interim Head Coach Ken Barbour was pleased with the teamâ€™s performance, saying, â€śLamesa has a style that can get a team out of sync. However, our defense adapted easily and allowed our offense to put the ball on the floor for many impressive kills.â€ť
The Frank Phillips College Lady Plainsmen opened the 2011-12 season on a high note by defeating Trinidad State College 75-55 in Trinidad, Colo.
In the second half, Trinidad St. was able to pull within six with ten minutes to go, but a 9-0 run gave the Lady Plainsmen the separation the team needed to get the 20 point win.
Laura Martinez had a big night off the bench scoring 18 points.
After a very cold start to the day today, we will see plenty of sunshine
and highs in the middle to upper 50s! Another strong upper-level storm
system will cause very windy conditions on Saturday with gusts over 55 mph
