New West Texas A&M men's basketball coach Tom Brown is officially on the job. The longtime Winona State assistant was introduced during an afternoon news conference Monday on campus in Canyon.
Brown said officials at WT made it clear what they wanted, which is to graduate student athletes and win championships. He said they did that during his long tenure at Winona State and he would love nothing better than to be at WT 16 years like he was at Winona State and have the same success they did there, which included two national championships and a runnerup finish among ten seasons in the NCAA playoffs. When asked about taking over as head coach instead of an assistant, he emphasized he is just part of the team that it takes to make the program successful. Brown said he has big shoes to fill in following former Buffs coach Rick Cooper, but he just wants to improve on WT's great tradition under Cooper.
For the first time in team history, the Amarillo Bulls find themselves in a big hole to dig out of in the post season.
The Bulls surrendered two 3rd period goals and dropped a 3-1 decision to the Topeka RoadRunners on Saturday night at the Budweiser Bull Pen in the Amarillo Civic Center. For the first time the Bulls trail a playoff series 2-0. Game three of the Best-Of-Five South Division Final set for Thursday night at Kansas Expo Center Landon Arena.
Brendan Vetter tallied the lone Bulls goal, while goaltender Collin Delia, who was locked up in a terrific duel with PJ Bridges, stopped 33 of 36 shots he faced in the loss.
The Amarillo Bulls got the start they needed in the opening 20 minutes. Brendan Vetter scored 26 seconds into the contest when his power play blast from the point beat goaltender PJ Bridges. However that would be all Bridges would allow the rest of the way.
The Amarillo Venom lost their second straight game in the Lone Star Football League on Saturday, falling on the road at the New Mexico Stars 70-49. Details of the game were not available on the Venom or LSFL website.
The loss drops the Venom to 2-2 on the season. They will be back home on Saturday, April 26th to host the West Texas Wildcatters beginning at 7:05 p.m. at the Amarillo Civic Center.
Amarillo High took a huge step toward the District 3-4A baseball title on Tuesday with a dramatic 7-6 win over Canyon. The Sandies won it on J.T. Fogg's inside the park home run in seventh.

Randall 8, Dumas 0
Palo Duro 9, Caprock 7
Bushland 13, Boys Ranch 1 (completes 1-2A race undefeated)
It was quite the slugfest between West Texas A&M and Wayland Baptist at Wilder Park yesterday. After falling behind early 10-0, the Buffaloes nearly came all the way back, but they end up losing 20-19 to the Pioneers. WT falls to 31-13 on the year, while WBU improved to 31-17.
The WT softball team took care of business with a doubleheader sweep of UT-Permian Basin, 4-3 and 8-1 yesterday in Canyon. That pushes the #1 ranked Lady Buffs winning streak to 19 straight, which is the longest in school history.
At the Lone Star Conference Golf Championship in Horseshoe Bay yesterday, the West Texas A&M women's golf team overtook Midwestern State in the final three holes to finish second with a final round 314.

The WT men's team wound up fourth overall.
