Texline Keeps Rolling

Espino’s five second half threes lead Tornadoes to ninth win of season

By THOMAS LOTT

There is never a dull moment when Texline plays teams from out of state. They are rivals with Clayton, New Mexico, a town just 10 miles from them, and those two teams always play tough.

Then there are teams like Boise City, who Texline beat by some 39 points last season, but returns a lot of seniors including one that is getting looked at by OPSU.

They came in to Texline on Tuesday night and gave the Tornadoes everything they could ask for, but ultimately fell 62-49 on the road.

Tornadoes test themselves early to prepare for future

By THOMAS LOTT

The first few weeks on the schedule for the Texline Tornadoes have been a severe test on the team just a few miles off the New Mexico Border.

Texline has played a schedule with big schools, small schools, ranked schools and schools that are going to be competing for a state title come February.

The most recent challenge for the Tornadoes came on Tuesday night when they took on Boise City on their home court.

The Wildcats may not be ranked in the OSSAA Rankings for Oklahoma, but make no mistake, this is a talented team. Boise City is one of the few teams this season that really matched up with the Tornadoes.
