Town Talk II
by Ron Carr

The weather prognosticators on Amarillo TV tell us there is cooler and rainy weather coming to the Panhandle later this week. Are we in for a wet Friday night football game? As usual we will have to wait and see. Hope we can report rainfall next week.


Darrell Bartlett was the winner of the big screen TV raffle held by the Friona Band Boosters. Eddie McBride of Amarillo won the fire department 4-wheeler. He works for Allied Waste in Amarillo and on a trip through Friona he saw the 4-wheeler displayed at 4-Way Pump and stopped in to buy a ticket. Turned out to be his lucky day. (more...)

Tenna Montana is Week 3 winner

The third week of the Friona Star football contest produced some higher scores although there were a few tricky games to pick.

Tenna Montana, a 2012 FHS graduate and first year student at the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, was the Week 3 winner. Tenna picked 14 of 15 games correct. Tenna and her family have entered the football contest for many years as family competition.

Close behind Tenna with 13 of 15 correct were Frank Dominguez and Miguel Porchas. Robert Kerby, Frank Gonzales, and Scott Brown managed to pick 12 of 15 game winners. (more...)

Squaws are 2-0 in district
From Coach Bryan Masse

The Squaws JV and varsity opened district play with victories over the Olton Fillies. Since Olton does not have a C team the Squaws C team traveled to Plainview Christian and lost 2-0 to the Lady Eagles.

The JV did not really play well in the first game but still beat Olton 25-21, 25-14. They played better and found their rhythm in the second game and won the match 2-0.

In the varsity match the ladies got off to a slow start also and struggled with inconsistent play. They were able to still win 25-23. In game two the Squaws served and passed better to a 25-20 win. Olton did not quit and made the Squaws earn the third game 25-18. We started getting into sync the last game and had some really nice passes to our setters who were able to run some really nice, quick middle sets and our middles did a nice job of putting the ball down.

On Tuesday the JV and varsity continued their winning ways in Littlefield with both teams sweeping the Lady Cats. The JV got all around good play from everyone and pounded the Lady Cats JV 25-11, 25-10. The JV travels to Portales Friday for a tournament. (more...)
