Lady Bulldogs top Levelland in 3A Bi-District playoff

April 30, 2011

HEREFORD-Making their first playoff appearance in several years, there is no question that there had to be some concern to how nervous the Borger Lady Bulldogs were going to be as they opened the 3A playoffs against the Levelland Loboettes on Friday evening in Hereford.
Fortunately the Lady Bulldogs answered that question by playing a solid game offensively and defensively to leave the field with an 11-5 win and advance to the 3A Area round, where they will take on Andrews next weekend.

West Texas Comanches shut out Shamrock to end regular season

April 30, 2011

The West Texas High Comanches must have been a little ticked off after their loss to Boys Ranch earlier this week, because they put it to the Irish yesterday, 13-0 in five innings. Senior Logan Hoff led the attack with two home runs in the first inning and Big Ty Lay knocked one over in the third. The Tribe batted around in the bottom of the first, sending twelve hitters to the plate. Hoff is the lead off batter and had a full count when he sent his first one over the fence. In fact, the entire Tribe had a great day at the plate.
