This Week's Events

  • O'Donnell falls at regional

    O'Donnell High School's Lady Eagles basketball team saw their season end Sunday just one win away from reaching the state tournament.

    The Lady Eagles were defeated by Garden City, 49-42, in the weather-delayed regional championship game Sunday afternoon at Abilene.

  •    Playing in their opponent's home gym didn't seem to bother the Lamesa High School's Golden Tornado basketball team in an area playoff game Saturday afternoon in Andrews.

       Lamesa defeated the Mustangs, 75-64, in the game which had been delayed a day and moved to a new location due to icy weather on Friday.

       The Golden Tornadoes now will face Levelland in the regional quarterfinals at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the Rip Griffin Center at Lubbock Christian University.
