Marfa’s Lady Horns take “I” out of team

February 18th, 2011

I congratulate Coach Hayes, Coach Torres and the Lady Shorthorn basketball team on an outstanding season this year. I vividly remember the first game in Alpine, when the Lady Horns took to the court with only one returning starter (Jessica Salgado). For that game, Jessica had to provide all the scoring while the others were in the …
