Seven in a row

Lady Wolves drop Lady Harvesters 48-40, hold two game lead on all opponents going into homecoming

By THOMAS LOTT

For a team that has won their last seven games a 12-11 first quarter doesn’t seem like a good start. The Lady Wolves of Dalhart opened up leads, albeit small leads, in their last three wins over Bushland (10-8), Borger (12-9) and Perryton (18-13) and were not too pleased with their openings.

But their 12-11 lead over Pampa on Tuesday night after the first quarter was seen as a success. Actually, it was seen as a springing board on the way to the Lady Wolves seventh win in a row, a 48-40 win over Pampa on their home court.

Living in the now

Lady Wolves trying to stay focused now that championship is in sight

By THOMAS LOTT

It’s great to be on a winning streak. It feels like no wrong can be done and winning starts to get easy.

But can winning ever get boring?

“I don’t think it gets boring,” senior guard Courtney White said. “But coming from a team that’s always kind of been on a winning streak, I enjoy winning a lot, because winning you just achieve more goals.”

Can a team be so used to winning they decide to stop working and start to trend downward despite the fact they are winning night after night?

Can a team start to get complacent as a season goes on knowing they can and should win every game they play for the remainder of the regular season?
