At the Texas State track and field meet, Dumas and Sunray had medal winners. The Demons mile relay team of Oliver Ortiz, Emmanuel Ibanez, Christian Carerra, and Cade Cox, did what they’ve done all year. Dumas impressed once again blazing a season-best time of 3:18.07 to jump on the medal stand with bronze.

Congratulations to the new Pole Vault STATE CHAMP and record-setter Ella Strickland of Sunray. Strickland won a gold medal while setting the new Class 2A state pole vault record of 13-0 1/4. That mark is also the new girls record in the Texas Panhandle.

The Demon’s baseball season came to an end Saturday with a tough loss to Snyder. Congratulations to the team on an excellent season. The team will be celebrated at the Baseball/Softball post season banquet on May 24th.
