7th grade Lady Mules Track @ Abernathy (3-27-14)
When the seventh grade Lady Mule track team got home from Abernathy and had an opportunity to examine the results. It became obvious they had won the meet and rather than placing second as they had been told.
Lili Martinez had finished second in the 1600-meter run. But her points had been credited to a girl named Martinez from Abernathy that had actually finished in eleventh place. Those eight points were enough to put the Lady Mules ahead of Abernathy for the team gold. Abernathy, Post, Tulia, Lubbock Roosevelt and Floydada all trailed the Lady Mules.
