It’s beginning to look like Nolan County will be well-represented when the Class 1A, Division II basketball playoffs begin. Check out District 13-1A, where both of the teams from Highland and Roscoe are closing in on postseason berths after all four won games Tuesday.
The Highland girls (6-0) beat Westbrook 73-28 and Roscoe’s girls (5-1) downed Hermleigh 48-29 to stay a game back. On the boys side, Highland and Roscoe are both now 3-1 in District 13-1A — and tied for second place — after Highland’s 65-27 win over Westbrook on Tuesday, along with Roscoe’s 56-39 win over Hermleigh on Wednesday.
Ethan Wilson, Laramie Thompson and Jacob Rich-burg all scored 13 points for Highland (10-6 season), which led Westbrook 17-8, 36-12 and 50-16 at the per-iod breaks. Jesus Leanos paced Roscoe’s win with 19 points, while Javier Leanos had 14 points and Cutter Davila 10. Roscoe led by 10, 24-14, at halftime.
Highland’s girls hit the 20-win plateau vs. Herm-leigh and maintained their lead over Roscoe in District 13-1A with yet another dom-inating performance.
Sierra Allen scored 24 points, Beth Richburg 13 and Madison Moseley 12 vs. Westbrook for the No. 2-ranked Lady Hornets (20-2), who led 15-4, 37-12 and 55-19 at the breaks.
Highland’s only two los-ses came when Allen, their top scorer, sat out several games in December due to injury before returning at the start of district. Roscoe stayed close to Highland in 13-1A, however, with Eva Aguayo’s 15 points pacing their latest win. Roscoe out-scored Hermleigh 42-22 in the last three quarters after trailing by a point, 7-6, at the end of one period.
Whitney Williams added nine points and Sunshine Saddler eight for Roscoe.
