West Texas wonders

It was a good weekend/ bad weekend for West Texas A&M athletics. In a story already posted the nationally ranked WT softball team is still alive in their quest for a national championship. The same cannot be said for the baseball team as the Battin' Buffs were eliminated from the LSC postseason tournament dimming their hopes for a bid to the regional round of play.

On the track the WT men's and women's teams finished 2nd in the LSC championship meet. 11 individuals captured first place while a handfull of others finished 2nd and 3rd. Those thinclads not already qualified for the D2 national meet will get one last chance to do so later this week in Abilene.

Meanwhile, the WTAMU Equestrian team has won a national championship. The Lady Buffs won their 2nd Western National Championshp in Harrisburg PA. The Lady Buffs had 3 national champions on the team side and one individual national champion. The title comes exactly 10 yrs after the schools last national Equestrian championship.
