Lady Wolves fall to Pampa in district opener

11-run fifth inning puts Lady Wolves in 0-1 district hole heading into match-up with rival Perryton

By THOMAS LOTT

When the Lady Wolves don’t hit they are going to have a hard time beating above average to good teams.

Dalhart did not hit on Saturday afternoon and it cost them. And even though a few hits would not have changed the outcome of the 18-0 final score, if the Lady Wolves got on the board early when they had a couple of chances, odds are the game would have at least been competitive.

What This Championship Means

Thoughts on the way home from the Alamodome

By KIMBERLY CANTRELL

I grew up in the small town of Texline, Texas. It is just like any other small town. Everyone knows everyone and everyone is in each other’s business. The old men sit at the café and talk about the weather and town gossip. If you get in trouble at school, your parents know before dinner is on the table. Kids walk everywhere and drink out of water hoses. The doors are unlocked, and keys are left in cars. However, there is one thing that separates Texline from other small towns. We love basketball.

Now when I say love, I don’t mean just a simple dedication. I mean an all-consuming, obsessive, passionate love. There is no football, and all other sports are pushed to the wayside. Texline cares just as much about high school basketball as other Texas towns care about high school football. Basketball starts early. You start playing in 2nd grade, and quickly realize at the young age of eight that the only thing that matters is to play basketball, and to do it well.
