Two Ranger golfers start the season

A pair of eager Perryton Ranger golfers couldn’t wait for the season to begin. The linksters braved the cold temperatures and high winds to get the season started. The two played in the Dumas Invitational on Saturday.

The tournament was held on the Pheasant Trails Golf Course, which served as the district tournament course last year. Pheasant Trails is an established course which was opened in 1951. The front nine holes of the course are in a Scottish-links design with new trees, deep roughs and flat fairways. The back nine is longer with more of a West Texas feel. Large trees line the fairways and give golfers who stray from the fairway problems. The home stretch also has a creek that winds through the course and comes into play on some holes.

Rangers avenge their loss to Dalhart

Rangers Basketball

The Ranger basketball team avenged their only district loss of the season at home on Tuesday. The Rangers were defeated after a slow start in Dalhart by the score of 57-53 earlier in the year. Perryton needed a win to stay in first place in the district standings. Dalhart needed a victory to remain solidly in the playoff hunt.

Dalhart entered Tuesday’s game with a definite defensive plan. That plan was to try and curtail Perryton’s leading scorer Griffin Bro-sowske, The Wolves managed to hold Brosowske below his season average, but other Rangers answered the call offensively. The diffusely spread offense helped the Rangers pick up the win by the final score of 64-56.
