GUYMON - On a beautiful day for baseball Tyrone traveled to Guymonâ€™s field to play against the Tiger J.V. After Guymon had a tough doubleheader against Bishop-McGuiness on Monday it was the exact opposite on Tuesday.
Richie Rodriguez pitched the entire first game for the Tigers throwing for four innings with nine strikeouts and only four hits. One of those Tyrone hits was a double early in the first inning and an error got the runner to third base.
The Sweet 15 Fashion Show on the Street, an event that took place last October, has been named as Main Street Guymon 2011 Creative New Event and as the 2011 Premier Special Event.
The Sweet 15 was a Quinceneara fashion show that took place on the street in front of the Main Street Guymon office this summer. The uniqueness of the event is that it targeted a Hispanic celebration, the Quinceneara (or 15, like a coming-out ball for 15-year-olds) and worked to bring in the Hispanic businesses and appropriate Anglo businesses.
