Armadillo Basketball Report

By Ron Welch

Last week the Armadillo basketball team played two games before the Thanksgiving break. On Nov. 21, the Dillos hosted Menard. The Dillos started off well in this game taking a 17 – 11 lead after one quarter. At the half, the Dillos held on to their lead 29-25. In the 3rd quarter the Dillos went a little cold and Menard pulled ahead and led 37 -34 at the end of the 3rd quarter. The Dillos battled back in the 4th and went ahead by 3 with a couple of minutes left in the game. But Menard hit a couple of big 3’s and went up by 3 points. It came down to the wire, but the Dillos lost the game 47-45. Wyatt Deans had a big night for us scoring 17 points, J. B. Salinas added 11 pts, Ruben Parra had 8 pts, Zayne Rhodes had 4 pts, Sean O’Keefe had 3 pts, and A.J. Paredez had 2 pts.

Coyote Pride

The Thanksgiving holidays are history. It was a busy weekend as the Coyotes played the quarterfinals game at Hico Stadium on Saturday night. Diehard fans showed up early and a standing room only crowd came to see the Coyotes' defense and offense dismantle a good Calvert team.

The Coyotes ended the game with the 45-point mercy rule with a 86-36 victory over the Calvert Trojans. This is a busy time, and a fun time for all, as basketball begins and high school football playoffs continue. Only three weeks of school remain as the first semester ends before the Christmas break begins on December 16th.

The junior high girls’ basketball team is 2-0 as they defeated Cherokee 44-12 last Monday. The junior high girls are working hard on conditioning and can run like the wind, up and down the floor. The junior high boys’ basketball team is also 2-0 as they defeated Cherokee 48-26 last Monday. Both the Jr. boys and girls hosted Rochelle at home this Monday.

7th Grade Armadillo Basketball Report

By Coach Mark Freeman
 
The 7th Grade Armadillos hosted the Junction Eagles last Monday at the White Gym for their first basketball game representing their school. The Dillos displayed much hustle on offense and defense which led to a one sided score. The Dillos played base man to man with a focus on fundamental defensive responsibilities. This led to many many first half turnovers and easy lay ups in our transition offense. The score at half time was 20-4. Offensively we had trouble setting up our 4 Out offense because our passing enabled quick scoring.
