Successful season comes to an end

Tigers fall to Hart 47-33 in bi-district playoff round

By THOMAS LOTT

With Hartley leading by a point in the fourth quarter, Tiger fans in the stands could feel victory within their grasp. They could see their team as bidistrict champions moving on to the area round for the first time in several years, and they could sense maybe even another win down the road.

But after the Tigers grabbed a 33-32 lead just a minute into the fourth quarter, the Tigers went ice cold from the field and the Longhorns made use of the foul situation Hartley was in.

Hart closed out the game on a 15-0 run with four of those coming on free throws and wasting most of the time on knowing that if the Tigers fouled they would be sent to the free throw line for two shots.

But actually, Bushland losing on Tuesday night does allow me to do something that I always have fun with and that is to announce the 2014-15 Dalhart Lady Wolves all-district honorees. And I get to do it on time this time! I’m on the ball today.

But going 8-0 in district play and winning their second district title in as many years, the Lady Wolves were bound to have honorees aplenty this season and they most definitely did.
