Plainsmen sacrifice break

While most students enjoyed a relaxing Spring Break, members of the livestock judging, baseball and softball teams sacrificed their break to represent Frank Phillips College.

The livestock judging team traveled to south Texas to compete at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, while the baseball team played a double header in New Mexico.

Sophomore Malorie McAllister, member of the livestock judging team, said that giving up her Spring Break was definitely worth it.

“Getting to travel with my team one last time was an experience I will cherish forever,” McAllister said.

She said in some ways it was easier to travel over the break.

“Honestly, traveling over the break was not that bad,” McAllister said. “We didn’t have makeup work or other burdens of school to worry about. We could just judge and enjoy our time together as a team.”

Several members of the baseball team are international students, so they would have had to stay in Borger anyway. Freshman Matt Dalgleish, a baseball player from Canada, said the entire team was on campus.

“It was nice to have some of my best friends to spend the break with,” he said. “We also didn’t have classes, so we had a lot of free time to enjoy our time off when we weren’t playing or practicing.”

These students already sacrifice their free time to practice throughout the year, but they would not have it any other way.
