Lady Wolves Teal Out

Volleyball team, students hope to bring awareness to ovarian cancer

By THOMAS LOTT

There were an estimated 800,000 new cases of cancer diagnosed in the United States in 2013.

There is no exact way to calculate how many people will be affected by cancer in some way in their lifetime in the U.S., but it is difficult to find anyone who has not had a family member or a friend diagnosed at some point or another.

Dalhart has seen the effects of cancer as much as anyone in the country over the years. In fact, in a research study done by the American Cancer Society, the XIT city, along with Muleshoe, has the highest rate of cancer in the entire Panhandle and are among the highest state wide.

A Rivalry renewed

Golden Wolves set to take on oldest rival in Guymon for homecoming game

It has been six games since the Golden Wolves have gone on a winning streak, but tonight, Dalhart has a chance to break that streak and win their second game in row, this time over Guymon, Oklahoma.

Dalhart and Guymon have been playing for years with some records showing the two teams have played as far back as the 1930s, so the rivalry is their historically, it just might not be there presently.

A new coach has come in to take over Guymon’s football team and he has all but cleaned house. His team featured eight or nine freshmen on it in 2013 and all of those players are back this year with more experience, though not quite ready to dominate their opponents.
