Mules lose to Tigers

By Jimmy Villa

The Mules were unable to handle the Slaton Tigers on senior night this past Friday here at Benny Douglas stadium. The Mules fall to 1-3 in district play this season. The first quarter was all Slaton, as they find the end zone four times. The Mules would have to wait until the second quarter to find some light with their own set of touchdowns for the night.

The Muleshoe Mule sub varsity team traveled to Slaton, Texas this past Thursday to face the Tigers. The game would end in the Mules second district tie bringing their district record to 1-1-2 and overall record to 1-5-3. The game seemed to be a close one for all four quarters; both teams found the end zone in the first quarter but only the Tigers would score in the second. The score at the half was Slaton 14, Mules 8.

By Jimmy Villa

The Muleshoe Mules were able to get their first win this past Friday night. The Mules hosted the River Road Wildcats here at Benny Douglas Stadium. To open up the game the Mules received the ball but were not able to score and had to punt it away to the Wildcats. The Wildcats took advantage and struck first. The Mules answered the call with a touchdown run from Senior quarterback Luke Del Toro. Del Toro ran thirteen yards to punch it in for the Mules. Senior kicker Brady Martinez tagged in the extra point for a successful field goal. The Mules would be the only team to find the end zone in the second quarter. Del Toro runs it in himself from one yard out. Junior linebacker Cristian Bustillos helped the Mules defense keep the Wildcats from scoring any points, Bustillos blocked a field goal attempt and robbed the Wildcats from scoring.

Muleshoe’s Ricky Diaz makes State qualifier in cross country

Muleshoe Cross Country

Mighty Mule Ricky Diaz has earned his way to the run in the State Cross Country meet in Round Rock, Texas, on Nov. 3.
Running in a full-out sprint during the last 800 yards, Ricky earned  the honor of running at the State Cross Country meet. He ran his best time of a 17:15.30 3 mile course.
The race at Old Settlers Park in Round Rock starts at 12:40 p.m. Sendoff will be announced as soon as there are more details.
All races start out with a bang and 90+ athletes running for what seems for no reason. However, that is not the case with Cross Country runners. They run to beat the person standing next to them and to beat the clock. They must battle the elements: soggy socks, aches and pains that come with training and their own minds.
