Mules take on Borger in 3A regional

CNJ staff

MULESHOE — Muleshoe’s boys hope to advance farther than any team in coach Ralph Mason’s previous 11 years at the school tonight when they face Borger in a Texas Class 3A regional round game at Amarillo High.

The Mules (18-13) have beaten Perryton and Seminole in the playoffs so far. Mason said his 1999 squad advanced to the third round of the playoffs, but did so after getting a first-round bye.

“I thought this was a special group, and they had a chance to do some good things,” Mason said. “It was just a matter of coming together.”

The Mules extended their winning streak to five by pounding Seminole 70-45 on Friday in Lubbock. Borger (20-11) got to this point with a 62-44 victory over Sweetwater.
