TURPIN - In just the second meet of the season so far, the Guymon girls track team has proven that they have some speed to contend with. As all the area teams gathered today at Turpin, the Lady Tigers came out with a second place team finish.
The meet started off really well for Guymon as their 800 meter relay finished first, in under two minutes at 1:52.94. In fact three of the four of the Tiger girlsâ€™ relays finished in first place. The 400 meter relay in 53.24 and the 1600 meter relay in 4:29.91.
TURPIN - While things didnâ€™t quite fair as well for the Guymon boys track team, Friday afternoonâ€™s meet was not without its moments of speed. Just like the girls this was the first meet that the Tigers had run in in the past week. Local area teams proved to be tough challenges for the Tigers. Their fifth place team finish behind Hooker, Beaver, Laverne and Boise City put them near the middle of the pack. Hooker meanwhile blew everyone away with 130 points.
HOOKER - The Bulldog bats got started early in the game against Turpin on Thursday. It only took three innings to rack up enough runs for the first, 11-1, win, that was aided by some stellar Hooker defense. Turpin had some chances in the second game with runners on to get some runs. They couldnâ€™t quite get the runs across and would lose the second one 9-1 in four innings as well.
CANYON, TEXAS - The Oklahoma Panhandle State Univ. Aggies (4-24) and the West Texas A&M Univ. Buffs (20-6) matched up for a doubleheader in Canyon yesterday and the teams split wins in the twin bill with the Aggies beating the No. 22 nationally ranked Lone Star Conference Buffs in game two.
HOOKER - After handling Tyrone easily on Friday evening in their double header Laverne looked to be a bit more of a challenge. What Hooker did Tuesday afternoon accomplished the same outcome with a sweep of their opponent and a 10-1 win in the second game.
With a few more games under their belts the hits seemed to be coming more frequently as they won in both five inning games.
â€śWe faced a real good pitcher that first game. Heâ€™s throwing with a torn ACL, but still heâ€™s good. And we hit him a little bit,â€ť said coach Chad Hussey.
