Marfa’s golf teams competed in the Alpine Golf Tournament this week and placed fifth as a team with a 417 total score and Brandon Leos holding the team’s best score of 99. The Shorthorns will host the Marfa Golf Tournament Monday, March 20th at the Marfa Municipal Golf Course. Tee off is at 9:00am.

The Lady Shorthorns, led by Rebecca Ontiveros’ 4-4 hitting and 8 RBIs, inaugurated their new, home field with a 9-20 victory over the Pecos Eagles. After falling behind briefly 0-4, Marfa loaded the bases with Ontiveros up to bat and the junior second baseman responded by drilling a line drive into left center-field to drive in three runs and open the flood gates for Marfa, plating another 3 runs in the inning and continuing a series of singles and doubles by Kendra Serrano, Kaci Flores, and Lexi Marquez. Serrano got the win on the mound and had 9 strikeouts in 4 innings pitched, 2 walks, and 6 earned runs allowed.

Marfa followed up Thursday’s game with a game against Alpine JV. Marfa’s sticks were quiet for most of the game, with only small cuts being made against the Lady Bucks’ hurler. Down 1-4, Bella Morales and Nohely Ramirez got on base on balls and sophomore pitcher Serrano worked the count to 2-2 and got the pitch the Shorthorns had been waiting for. With a pitch down the inside of the plate, Serrano turned on the pitch and knocked it to deep left-center field to bring Morales and Ramirez in to score off a triple. Serrano worked the pitcher and catcher’s attention at third base until she was able to get a big jump off the pitch to score the game tying run. Due to an enforced time cap, the game ended in a tie to allow for the proceeding game to begin on time.

The Lady Shorthorns return to the diamond after spring break to begin district play on the

road against Anthony High School, Friday, March 24th.

Arron Luna continues to hold some of the state's best times in the 200m and 400m run.
