“Being the first tournament of the year, you never know what to really expect, especially with very little practice,” said Head Men’s and Women’s Golf Coach Steven Butler. “Two of the guys played basketball Tuesday night in Friona then turned around and left at 6:30 a.m. Wednesday morning to play golf, with no official practice time, and ended up first and third.”
Senior Golfer Luke Leal won the tournament and took home a first place golf for the Mules after shooting a 91.

A win last week against the Tulia Hornets secured a playoff spot for the Muleshoe Lady Mules for the first time in years.
With the victory, the Lady Mules finished fourth in district.
“The win held a large amount of importance because if we had lost, we would have had to play Tulia again for a playoff spot,” said Lady Mules Coach Kim Chaffin.
In the first quarter of the game, the Lady Mules got off to a great start. The Lady Mules’ Keely Dunham made the first basket to put them on the board. The Hornets answered with a jump shot of their own.
