Lady Dillo Basketball Report

The Lady Dillos opened up District play this past week with a huge road win against the Mason Cowgirls. The win moved the Lady Dillos to 25-2 on the season and 1-0 in District play.

From the opening tip-off, the Lady Dillos came out firing and you could sense how badly they wanted it. We had an aggressive mindset and jumped out to an early 16-7 first quarter lead. The Lady Dillos continued to execute and hit big shots as they went into halftime leading 27-16.

We knew Mason would come out in the 2nd half and make some adjustments and continue to fight. However, the Lady Dillos would keep their composure and hit some timely shots and some big free throws down the stretch in order to come away with the victory. The Lady Dillos defeated Mason by a final score of 44-36.

Coyote Pride

January is School Board Recognition month. Take this opportunity to help acknowledge thousands of public servants who make the time to share their vision and voice about the future of Texas children. A special thanks to our board members: Pres. Jason Lewis, V. Pres. Rennie Mann, Secretary Tana Lusty, Sally Gossett, Grant Appleton, Steven Tharp, and Nick Taylor.

Parent involvement is critically important in the education of children of all ages, from newborns through high school age and beyond. We know that parents—and what they do or don't do at home—make a huge difference in their child’s reading ability, in their attitudes toward learning, in the development of socially responsible behaviors and values, in children's performance on standardized test scores, in students' likelihood of graduating from high school, and much more.

Even novices in US History know that discovery of our part of the world was made by Christopher Columbus in 1492.

On a far more personal note, Beverly Hindman--an 82-yearold widow in Burleson, TX--has collected important “puzzle pieces” this year to greatly clarify her family history. Now, 527 years after Columbus landed, she’s made a discovery of her own. After thorough research, she has learned of an older brother, and several other new relatives. Her pilgrimage is at once heartwarming and inspiring. She and her 90-year-old brother, George Shepard, embraced for the first time ever when Bev and daughter, Ruthie, deplaned in Chicago last August for a week-long visit.

Lady Dillo Basketball Report

The Lady Dillos headed into Christmas break by adding two more big wins against Llano and Goldthwaite to move their overall record to 18-1 on the season.

On Tuesday, the Lady Dillos traveled to Llano to face the Lady Yellow Jackets. It didn’t take long for the Lady Dillos to take control of the game as they led 16-3 at the end of the 1st quarter and 34-3 at half. Solid defense and good ball movement against their zone led to a big Lady Dillo victory by a score of 53-17.

On Thursday, the Lady Dillos hosted the Lady Eagles of Goldthwaite for the ‘Battle of the River’ basketball edition. Goldthwaite came into this game coming off of a big win against Crawford so we knew they had been playing well. However, the Lady Dillos have been playing some great team basketball of their own and were ready to go to battle.
