Uniform Change: Superb Transition

It wasn’t a win, December 20th, but it was close enough for San Saba basketball boys and their coaches to break for the holidays with their heads high.

With a bunch six days removed from their 15th football game of the season, the Armadillos rallied from a 32-15 deficit early in the third quarter to a 41-38 loss to visiting Llano. A three-point field goal attempt, with a couple of seconds left, did not fall to end the need of overtime.

“It’s only a comeback if you win,” said Mark Kyle, in his first year as San Saba head coach. He, too, had come off outside duties as the secondary coach. “It was a good effort by the kids,” he acknowledged, and his mood was upbeat, considering it was moments after a defeat.

The Vision: Contend for Titles—Again

“It was solid,” was the summation of head coach Alicia Cummings after the Lady Armadillos—ranked sixth in the state in Class 2A—walloped Llano, 53-16, December 18th.

“Took us awhile to get into a rhythm,” she added, in reference to a box-and-one defense by the Lady Jackets, which, “got us out of sync.” Note: the “box” is the zone, while the “one” from Llano hangs out with San Saba’s Linzey Maxcey.

“I had confidence in my team,” said Maxcey. “We’re not a one-woman team; we’re a 10-player team. We can get the job done no matter what they do.”

Richland Springs boys basketball wins Rochelle Tournament, upsets 2A Junction

Six days after walking off the gridiron for the final time in 2018 the Richland Springs Coyotes found themselves in unfamiliar territory, they were trailing. Down 7 late in the first quarter to Lingleville the Coyotes, with merely 2 days of practice under their belt, went to work. Lead in scoring by Sophomore Matthew Rigdon (35) and defensive stops by Senior Cameron Parham, the Coyotes ended the next three quarters on a 43-21 run to win 62-37.

The Coyotes never seemed to cool off in the coming days as the average of margin of victory exceeded 35 points while defeating Rochelle, Lometa, and Brookesmith. Multiple double-digit rebound games from Junior Wade Appleton and scoring outbursts of 32 by Freshman Chase Rigdon and 31 from Matthew Rigdon saw that the Coyotes would play in the tournament final.

Lady Dillo Basketball Report

The Lady Dillos got their week started when they traveled to Comanche to face the Lady Maidens. From the opening tip off, the Lady Dillos overwhelmed Comanche with their defensive pressure. They held a 17-0 lead after the 1st quarter and would never look back. The Lady Dillos defeated Comanche by a final score of 71-16.

The Lady Dillos then traveled to Coleman on Thursday morning to play a tough Cisco team in the opening round of the Coleman tournament. We knew that Cisco had a great team and would test us for 32 minutes.

Cisco, in many ways, is very similar to us. They have great defensive pressure and have a lot of weapons to hurt you offensively. They also push the ball really well in transition.

Cisco came out and took an early six-point lead in the 1st quarter. Both teams would go back and forth trading baskets as the game went on, but the Lady Dillos could never really cut into their lead. Cisco went on to defeat the Lady Dillos by a score of 46-53.

Coyotes can’t keep pace with Oakwood

Our Richland Springs Coyotes finish the season (11-2) after falling to Oakwood in the State Quarterfinals this past Friday night by a score of (66-56).

The Oakwood Panthers must have guzzled jet fuel instead of Gatorade before the game! They were hitting on all cylinders and flying on both sides of the ball. Despite some adversity, our Coyotes never gave up and keep chipping away as long as they could. There were a couple of times our young Coyotes could have folded their tent and headed west, but they were true to our school motto, “Coyotes Fight, Never Die.”

Hats off to Oakwood and we wish them well moving forward.

Lady Dillo Basketball Report

What an exciting time for San Saba High School and Armadillo nation! It is a great time to be a Dillo and we are so excited about the success of our student-athletes. They truly are special kids.

To start the week for the Lady Dillos, they hosted the Lady Dragons of Bangs. Bangs is a very physical team and we knew we would be tested down low. They had a strong post and we knew we would need to battle in the post and get lots of pressure on the ball. The first half was fairly even as the Lady Dillos held a 20-15 lead at halftime. However, in the 2nd half, the Lady Dillos defensive pressure overwhelmed Bangs as we went on a 25-2 run in the 3rd quarter. The Lady Dillos would hold Bangs to just 11 points in the 2nd half and eventually defeat the Lady Dragons by a final score of 57-26.
