LIBERAL - In both games against Liberal last night there were moments it seemed the Tigers would pull away for the win. For the Tigers those moments wouldnât last as the girls lost 38-33 and the boys lost 64-51.
The Lady Tigers started things off quickly, shots were falling and defense was causing turnovers. At the end of the first it seemed as though Guymon had things completely under control.
âI thought we started off well. We were aggressive offensively and we started just how we planned,â said coach Tim Hofferber.
FELT - On January 27th Felt traveled to Goodwell for games, which the Eagles won handily. Monday night Goodwellâs travels to Felt did not go quite as well. The Lady Eagles once again were able to beat Felt, 33-31, but the boys were unable to win the 53-45 game.
Both games on Monday were close ones that could have ended with either team getting the win. The boys game was just a one point game at halftime and the Eagles were only down three with a minute to play.

Earlene Schaefer served as the Yucca Girl Scout Council Executive Director for over 20 years, but when asked to tell her Girl Scout Story, the story she chooses to tell is about her mentor and the first Yucca Girl Scout Council Director Liz Martin.
The admiration Schaefer holds for Martin is obvious in every word she speaks while telling the story.
Elizabeth Buster Martin, a Guymon native, became a Girl Scout in the mid 1940s when she led the troop that had daughter Marilyn (Grider).
