Loboettes Win in Four at Lamesa; Levelland Locks Up a Playoff Birth for 2019

Loboette Volleyball Team Pic 2019Last season the Levelland Loboettes lingered around district play long enough to clinch as spot with a final match win over Lubbock Estacado in the game of the regular season.  The Loboettes closed out a playoff spot considerably earlier for 2019 as a four game win at Lamesa 21-25, 25-9, 25-13, 25-23 locks the Loboettes into the playoffs for 2019.

Lamesa was strong early and behind a four point run from Camryn Clements and a three point run from Lilian Cortez, the Golden Tornadoes led wire-to-wire for a 25-to-21 win in game one.

That would be all the Golden Tornadoes would get.

Levelland got a five point run from Hannah Scifres, and four point runs from Kriston Montgomery and Jordan Campbell in the second.  Coupled with 11 kills. Levelland led wire-to-wire in the second for 25-to-nine win.

Game three went much the same as game two.

Scifres would couple a four point run with a four point run from Chloe Dunn and rolled to a game three win 25-to-13 and pushed the Loboettes to a two-to-one lead in the match.

Lamesa started game four strong with a five point run from Natalie Casillas and four from Camryn Clements but a five point lead for the Golden Tornadoes was wiped away as Michaela Watkins went off for seven game four kills.  Add in a five point service string from Annie Dewbre and Levelland took the fourth 25-to-23 and took the match 21-25, 25-9, 25-13, 25-23.

Levelland took the kill column 45-to-27 and won the block column five-to-one.

The Loboettes hung up 11 service aces against seven faults while Lamesa got just five aces on seven faults.

Levelland got everyone involved in the win.

Michaela Watkins set the pace with 14 kills on the night but Annie Dewbre doubled up with ten kills and two blocks while Mahalie Stafford broke out with seven kills and three blocks.  Kaylee McCarter and Kazzi Spears tabbed five kills each while Illiyana Gonzalez took two kills and Mika Campos and Kriston Montgomery added one kill each.

Everyone got involved in the service column as well.

Hannah Scifres led the charge with 11 points and one ace while Chloe Dunn added 10 points with four aces and Kriston Montgomery took ten points on one ace.  Annie Dewbre chipped in nine points on one ace and Kazzi Spears added nine points with three aces.  Jordan Campbell rounded out the column with six points on one ace.

Lamesa was paced by a very solid night from Madysin Ruiz with 13 kills and one block.

The win moves Levelland to 22-and-13 on the season and three-and-two in district play with three to go, but the win does much more than that.  Coupled with a Canyon High sweep of Lubbock Estacado and Levelland, Canyon and Hereford all lock playoff spots for 2019.

The Golden Tornadoes drop to 21-and-14 overall and one-and-four in the district.  It also leaves them needing one more win to advance to the 2019 playoff round.

Levelland will take Saturday off as their final bye of 2019 before hosting Canyon on Tuesday.  They wrap up with a trip to Hereford on Saturday October 26th and host Lubbock Estacado on Tuesday October 29th to close the regular schedule.

The Loboettes host Canyon on Tuesday with Freshman and Junior Varsity at 5:00pm and Varsity at 6:00pm.  Loboette Pregame Show opens at 5:30pm on KLVT AM1230, and KLVT Facebook Live!
