Armadillo Basketball Report

By Ron Welch

The Armadillo basketball team got back into the swing of things after a 6-day layoff for the Christmas Holidays. On our first day we could play after the break, the Armadillos played in the May Tournament on Dec. 27-29.

Our first matchup of the tournament was against May. We had played them earlier this season. Being our first day back in basketball and not having any practices due to UIL rules, you never know what to expect from your team. We didn’t play very well offensively or defensively and May ended up handling us fairly well.

In the second round of the tournament, we played Lometa. We had faced Lometa twice earlier in the season. They had beaten us both times. Our kids responded much better this game.

Lady Dillo Basketball Report

By Alicia Cummings

The Lady Dillos headed into Christmas break with an exciting road win over the Comanche Maidens. This game was a battle from start to finish.

Comanche started off the game on fire from the outside and jumped out to a 0-9 lead. The Lady Dillos would battle back in the 2nd quarter, but Comanche would go on a run right before halftime to improve their lead to 20-28 over the Lady Dillos.

The 3rd quarter would be a turning point for the Lady Dillos as we would outscore the Maidens 19-10 during that eight-minute span. The 4th quarter would see the lead change several times. It would come down to some key defensive stops and clutch free-throw shooting to secure the win for the Lady Dillos.

Angel Gonzales pushing the ball down the court

Last week we hosted a merry Christmas program. The show opened up with kindergarten, first grade, and second grade performing a few cute Christmas songs. They were followed by the third, fourth, and fifth graders who performed a dramatic version of the ballet, The Nutcracker. The actors, speakers, and crew members did a fantastic job! The Spanish classes took the stage next and sang “Feliz Navidad” as a group. They were followed by a smaller group of high school students including Brycen Gartman, Carter Wisdom, Raegan Bond, Kyler Bordner, Sydnie Bond, Gracie Gartman, Brissa Baugh, Crista Paik , Jaedyn, Isaac Graves, and Kathryn Meuth who sang several Christmas carols. Kyler Bordner and Raegan Bond then accompanied Brycen Gartman’s vocals and piano skills. Brycen Gartman sang and played the piano solo on the song, “Hallelujah.” The show ended with the high school group singing “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.” It was a treat for all!

News From Cherokee ISD

By Kari Owen

 

This week marks the last full week of school before Christmas break! School will let out at 12:15 next Tuesday and will resume January 2nd. We are so excited for the break and we hope that you all get to spend some quality time with your families.

There’s a lot to do before that though. First the varsity girls will start their regular season this week with their first district game in Richland Springs. The boys will end the week with a tournament in Hico. Last week the varsity teams played in the Medina tournament. The girls were 1-1 mid-tourney and the boys were 0-2. They both finished strong though with big wins in their last games of the tournament.

7th grade Armadillo Basketball Report

By Coach Mark Freeman

 

The 7th Grade Armadillos hosted Center Point this past Monday for a basketball game. The Dillos displayed much hustle on offense and defense which led to a one-sided score. We attempted our first full court press of an opponent and struggled early springing our traps.

After Florencio Esquivel got enough reps in the first quarter, he was able to jump the ball on the inbounds pass and set traps with Westin Lackey and Polo Davila.

We have not perfected setting the second level trap but will continue to work on it this week. Our base defense has been strong this season – so when Center Point was able to break our press, we were able to quickly jump into our base man “Pack-Line” defense.

7th Grade Armadillo Basketball Report

By Coach Mark Freeman

 

The 7th Grade Armadillos traveled to Harper this past Monday for a basketball game against the longhorns. The Dillos displayed much hustle on offense and defense which led to a one sided score. The Dillos played basic man to man with a focus on fundamental defensive responsibilities.

This led to many first half turnovers and easy lay ups in our transition offense.

The score at half time was 22-4. This was almost the exact result from the previous week against Junction. Wesley Lackey was key again this week in getting us up and down the court and setting the tempo. He also had a great night defensively with constant ball pressure and frustrating the Longhorn’s passing.
