The eighth grade Lady Mules traveled to Dimmitt and defeated the Bobbies 30-9. The Lady Mules ran out to an 11-1 lead in the first period and added six more before the half to lead Dimmitt 17-3.
The Lady Mule defense held Dimmitt to two points in the third period and four in the final frame. The Lady Mules scored five in the third quarter and seven in the final period.
“This was really not bad for having been out for two weeks without practice,” said Lady Mule coach Jalissa King. “Every girl scored! Kyndal Miller had a great game with eight defensive rebounds, two steals and two assists. Kinsey Parker, Maddison Price and Keely Dunham added four rebounds.”
The eighth grade B team defeated Dimmitt 11-6. The Lady Mules held Dimmitt scoreless in the first half and led 3-0 at the intermission. The Lady Mules put in six points while Dimmitt scored four in the third period and the two teams scored two points each in the final frame.
Abriana Mendoza led the Lady Mules with nine points and Nikole Quezada added two points.
“We had five eighth graders and five seventh graders who have not really practiced together or even run the same plays,” continued Coach King. “I drew up a new play for them that none had seen and they ran it textbook. It was great to see all of these girls working together and trying to help each other understand what to do.”
The Lady Mules played in the Levelland Loboette Tournament January 8 and 10 before they hosted the Littlefield Lady Cats Monday.
