Several area teams are still in playoff chase

January 20, 2014

The district races are be-ginning to heat up, and several Nolan County area high school basketball teams are right in the thick of things as they resume play tonight.
In District 13-A, Division II, Highland’s girls (4-0) lead second-place Roscoe (3-1) by a game after the Lady Hornets’ dominating 70-22 win over the Plowgirls on Tuesday. Highland plays at Hermleigh (1-3) at 6:30 p.m.; Roscoe has an open date since its scheduled op-ponent, Loraine, has forfeited its varsity schedule. To make up for the forfeit, the Plowgirls will play a home school team from Odessa at 8 p.m.
The District 13-A, Divi-sion II boys race is wide open. Roscoe and Highland — both 1-1 — are among four teams tied for second behind Ira (2-0). Roscoe hosts Loraine (0-2) at 6:30 p.m. and Highland hosts Hermleigh ( 1-1) at 8 p.m. The Plowboys defeated the Hornets 39-33 on Tuesday for their first district win.
In District 14-A, Division II, the Blackwell boys are currently tied with Bronte for third place at 4-2, trail-ing only Garden City and first-place Water Valley. Blackwell’s girls are 2-6 in district. Both host Garden City starting at 6:30 p.m. today. The boys beat Veri-best 67-58 on Tuesday after dropping two straight, get-ting 25 points from Mat-thew Lowry and 17 from Jayden Jones while Wade Allen and Mason Magness had nine points and Ethan Andrews seven. The Black-well girls also won, 62-27, in their game against Veri-best, getting double-figure scoring from Stephanie Metcalf (23) and Hailey Bennett (15). Abby Gott, Shianne Solis and Halee Sanderson had six points.
