No. 5 Lady Texans Down No. 17 Midland 68-59 to Capture WJCAC Tournament Championship, Advance to Region V Title Game

Jordan Brown scores two of her nine on Wednesday in the conference title bout

LUBBOCK — The fifth-ranked South Plains College women’s basketball team punched their ticket to the Region V title game Wednesday, defeating No. 17 Midland College 68-59 in the Western Junior College Athletic Conference Tournament championship at the Rip Griffin Center.

The Lady Texans will square off with Weatherford College at 1 p.m. on Saturday at the Coliseum at 900 Coliseum Drive in Snyder, in Snyder, with the winner receiving an automatic bid to the NJCAA Women’s Basketball National Tournament.

“I’m really proud of this group,” South Plains head coach Ara Baten said. “I’m proud of the players who were at South Plains last year, and I’m really proud of the players we brought with us from Odessa. We have some great freshmen with some great attitudes, but all of our kids who come from different places have really come together and I think we’re playing our best right now.”

Midland jumped out to a 10-3 lead to begin the contest, controlling the opening minutes as Nya Lok sank a 3 from the right wing with 6:03 to play in the first quarter. South Plains answered back with a 10-2 run, taking a 13-12 lead with under just over three minutes to play in the first on a free throw from sophomore Jordan Brown.

The Lady Texans would push their lead to 25-21 early in the second quarter as Brown banked a jumper off the glass. Leading 31-29 following a free throw from Midland’s Bella Green with 2:58 to go before the break, South Plains would go on an 8-2 run to close out the first 20 minutes, taking a 39-31 advantage into the locker room.

“I thought we had some kids come in the game for us and hit a couple of 3s, and it felt like it took some of the pressure of the game off of us,” Baten said. “And that’s the fun thing about our team – it can be just about anybody who gives us a lift, and it was great for our team. When you come to a place like South Plains, you want to win conference championships, you want to win region championships, and you want to win national championships. Right now, we’re still in that mode and after that goal.”

South Plains would come out of the break and open its lead to 14, 47-33 on a 3 from sophomore Dyana Offutt, part of an 8-2 to begin the second half. Midland would finally get back within 10, 51-41 with 1:22 left in the third following a free throw from Lok. Ewa Kielar extended South Plains’ lead back to 14, 55-41 with a 3-pointer from the top of the key with 9:41 to play.

Midland responded with a 10-4 run to trim the deficit to nine, 59-51 on a triple from Brooke Galvin with 4:26 to go. South Plains never flinched, pushing their lead back to double dights, 62-51 thanks to a 3-ball from sophomore Shayla Moseberry with 3:40 remaining as the Lady Texans secured their third win against the Lady Chaparrals this season.

“South Plains is an amazing place to be with great people, so I’m glad we could have some success this year as almost an appreciation for how well we have been treated,” Baten said. “All year, defense has been what’s kept us in games, and we did not start the game well defensively. I thought we settled down and started defending better from the second quarter on, and that’s what we feed off of. For us, defense is where it starts.”

Reis finished with 11 points and 16 rebounds for SPC, her 16th double-double this season. Grace Hunter dropped in 13 points and dished out four assists over 34 minutes, while Brown netted nine points and six boards. Moseberry chipped in nine points off the bench, while Serena WatersMartyna Czescik, and Offutt each finished with six points.

South Plains scored 24 points inside the paint, holding a narrow 40-38 rebounding advantage on the glass. The Lady Texans received 26 points from their bench, shooting 40.3 percent from the field, and knocked down nine 3s in the contest.

Lobos Needs Nine but Defeats Estacado Six-to-Five, Levelland Wins Eighth Straight in District

The Levelland Lobos needed nine innings last night but managed to scratch out a six-to-five extra inning win over Lubbock Estacado. The win moves to Lobos to eight-and-oh in district play and opens a two game lead over the Matadors.

Levelland got on the board in the first when Zaiden LeCroy would draw a one out walk. Blake Klose would walk behind him setting the Lobos with two on and two gone. Reigan Vestal would single through the middle driving in LeCroy and Klose would score on a wild pitch giving Levelland a two-to-nothing lead after a half inning.

Estacado responded in the bottom of the frame.

Austin Segoiva would single before Landon Hernandez struck out. Oscar Delgado would double setting the Lobos with two on and one out. Diego Camacho would come to the plate and crank and two-oh pitch out of right center field. The three run blast put Estacado in front three-to-two and still just one out. Jaydn Betancur would reach on an error to follow and three walks would follow plating a fourth run for the Matadors as Estacado led four-to-two after one frame.

The second came and went before Levelland got on the board in the third.

Joel Pena would be hit by a pitch to start the inning and steal second but a ground out by Zaiden LeCroy and a popup from Dylen Wolfe looked to kill the rally with Pena at third. Levelland figured out a way as Blake Klose singled the opposite way to drive in Pena and cut the lead to Estacado 4, Levelland 3. Reigan Vestal would follow with his second single of the night and Dylan Bordayo would put the Lobos back in front with a two run double. Levelland would plate three with the two out rally and took a five-to-four lead to the bottom of the third.

There it would stay all the way to the bottom of the seventh.

Landon Hernandez and Oscar Delgado would both walk before a Diego Camacho fly ball would move Hernandez to third with one out. Jaydn Betancur would follow with a RBI flare single to center and Lubbock Estacado had tied the game at five-to-five with two on and just one out. Frank Guzman walked to load the bases and the Lobos appeared to be in trouble. Again the Lobos found a way. Dylen Wolfe would strike out the next two and Estacado would leave the bases loaded in the bottom of the seventh sending it to the eighth at five-to-five.

Levelland got a two out baserunner in the top of the eighth but came away empty and Estacado would get noisy in the bottom of the frame. Austin Segoiva would double with one out and move to third on a ground ball out setting the Matadors with the winning run at third and two down. Oscar Delgado would walk and Levelland would intentionally walk Diego Camacho setting up a force at every base with two outs. That would be all Estacado would accomplish as Jaydn Betancur flew out to left and sent it to the ninth still tied at five.

The Lobos looked like they would go away quietly in the ninth as well as Zaiden LeCroy and Dylen Wolfe lined out for the first two outs of the inning. That would bring Blake Klose to the plate bases empty and two dead. Klose lined a ball past third down the line and the hustle double got the Lobos a runner in scoring position with two out. Reigan Vestal would rip a ball to short that appeared to be the third out of the inning but an Estacado throwing error allowed Vestal to reach and Klose to score and Levelland took a six-to-five lead to the bottom of the ninth.

It would be all the motivation Lobo relief pitcher Dylen Wolfe would need. Two fly balls and a strikeout later Levelland was celebrating a six-to-five nine inning win and an eight game winning streak in district play.

Levelland would get six runs on eight hits with one error and left nine while Lubbock Estacado would score five on seven hits with two errors and left 12 including the bases loaded in both the seventh and eighth.

Neither starter would figure into the decision as Tyler Marrow went five and a third for the Lobos allowing four runs with three earned on five hits, four walks, a hit batter and struck out nine. Ben Gonzales, Lubbock Estacado’s starter, worked five and one-third allowing five runs all earned on seven hits four walks an hit batter and five strikeouts.

Dylen Wolfe would claim the win in two and two-thirds innings allowing one run on two hits, five walks, an intentional walk and four punch outs. Oscar Delgado was the hard luck chuck loser allowing one unearned run in three and two-thirds. That run came on one hit, one walk, a hit batter and two strikeouts.

The win moves Levelland to 16-and-five on the year, runs their win streak to eight and moves the Lobos to eight-and-oh in district play. More importantly, Levelland now has a two game lead on Estacado in the race for a district title.

The Lobos return home for two in a row as they host the Lubbock Estacado Matadors on Friday night and the Big Spring Steers on Tuesday of next week.

Tune in the Lobos on Friday with Lobo Pregame Show at 6:30pm on Levelland Sports Nation on Facebook. Coverage on KLVT AM1230 and http://www.klvtradio.com will directly follow Loboette Softball.

The Levelland Loboettes hit the road on Tuesday and hit Estacado up for a 16-to-five win. For the Loboettes it’s their third district win in a row as they climb back into the hunt for district hardware.

The Loboettes got started early as Chloe Constantino hit her ninth homerun of the year and the three run shot put Levelland in front three-to-nothing after a half inning.

Estacado would get one back in the bottom of the first on a Loboette error and a RBI single from Ja’cquelynn Jones leaving Levelland in front three-to-one after one.

Levelland scored again in the second on back-to-back doubles from Madalon Rico and Jaclyn Puente to push the lead to four-to-one Levelland after two and they piled on in the third.

Kiki Childers would hit a two-run jack and Madalon Rico hit her first homerun of 2021 on a three run shot. It put Levelland in front nine-to-one to the bottom of the third.

Estacado would get three back in the bottom of the third on a couple of Loboette errors and a two run triple from Jayce Gutierrez cutting the score to Levelland 9, Estacado 4 after three but the Lady Matadors would get no closer.

Natalie Coronado would homer in the fourth to push the lead to ten-to-four after four and Levelland scored another in the sixth on three singles from Coronado, Constantino and Childers.

Estacado scored one in the bottom of the sixth on a three singles cutting the lead to Levelland 12, Lubbock Estacado 5 after six.

Levelland crossed four more in the seventh on a triple from Chloe Constantino, a two-run homerun from Angelia Gonzalez and singles from Madalon Rico and Kiki Childers.

The four run seventh put it well out of reach as the Loboettes cruised in for the 16-to-five win to move to three-and-two in district, run their win streak to three and move to 11-13-and-one on the season.

Levelland banged out 16 runs on 20 hits with five errors and seven left. Lubbock Estacado got five runs on nine hits with one error and seven left.

Natalie Coronado pitched her ninth win of the season working all seven allowing just five runs with two earned on nine hits, two walks, a hit batter and seven strikeouts.

Levelland hit five homeruns in contest as Natalie Coronado, Chloe Constantino, Angelia Gonzalez, Madalon Rico and Kiki Childers all went deep for the Loboettes.

The win moves the Loboettes to three-and-two and to 10-13-and-one the year and climb back into the hunt for not only a district playoff spot but a district championship as well.

Levelland returns home on Friday to play host to the Snyder Lady Tigers with Varsity first pitch at 5:00pm and Junior Varsity to follow.

No. 5 Lady Texans Soar Past Howard 57-41 Tuesday, Advance to WJCAC Tournament Championship

LUBBOCK — The fifth-ranked South Plains College women’s basketball team will play for the Western Junior College Athletic Conference Tournament championship after defeating Howard College 57-41 in the semi-final round on Tuesday at the Rip Griffin Center.

South Plains will take on the winner of Midland College and Western Texas at 5 p.m. on Wednesday. Fans are welcome to attend, and the game will also stream live at spctexans.com.

“I think for the most part we were really good defensively,” South Plains head coach Ara Baten said. “I thought we had a couple of breakdowns in the first half but didn’t have many in the second half. I thought every shot they took we were there, so I’m really proud of the way we defended. We rebounded the ball better in the second half, and our offense is going to come and go. We turned it over a few times early on and were able to clean it up, and overall I thought we played well.”

Freshman Debora Reis recorded her 15th double-double of the season, totaling 14 points and 13 rebounds, connecting on 7 of 19 shots from the floor over 34 minutes. South Plains opened the contest 6 of 11 from the field, shooting 54.5 percent in the first 10 minutes before eventually taking a 26-25 lead in the break.

The Lady Texans would open the second half with an 11-2 run, pushing their lead to 37-27 midway through the third quarter. South Plains would hold the Lady Hawks to just four points in the third as they carried a commanding 41-29 lead in the final stint. South Plains shot 43 percent in the final 10 minutes, knocking down a trio of 3s and forced Howard to shoot just 37 percent in the contest and 22.7 percent from distance.

“We didn’t make any adjustments in the second half, and our kids played well defensively,” Baten said. “They took on the challenge individually and did their job. They helped each other out defensively and I thought they did a good job today.”

SPC controlled the interior, netting 32 points inside the paint, and tallied 16 points off 16 turnovers from the Lady Hawks. The Lady Texans recorded 12 points on second-chance opportunities, outrebounding Howard 42-35. Sophomore guard Jordan Brown poured in 14 points, grabbed five rebounds and handed out four assists, while Grace Hunter dropped in 11 points, bucketing 5 of 11 shots over 34 minutes.

 “Howard did a good job mixing up their defense and switching to zone,” Baten said. “I thought our movement was better in the second half and, and it’s just one of those things that goes up and down. Whoever we play tomorrow is going to be a tough game, and we’re going to have to play well if we are going to have a chance to win.”

No. 1 Texans fall to Howard 61-60 Tuesday in Lubbock

LUBBOCK — The South Plains College men’s basketball team erased an 11 point first half deficit, but a late surge from Howard College in the final minutes of Tuesday’s Western Junior College Athletic Conference Tournament semi-final matchup was enough to push the Hawks past the Texans 61-60 at the Rip Griffin Center.

The top-ranked Texans move to 17-2 on the season and will look to secure one of eight at-large bids to the NJCAA Men’s Basketball National Tournament April 19-24 in Hutchinson, Kansas.

Trailing 29-28 at the midway point, South Plains would take a four point lead, 35-31 at the 16:38 mark of the second half thanks to a 3-pointer from sophomore Mareng Gatkuoth. Howard would answer with a 6-0 run to retake the lead 37-35 on a jumper from JR Smith. Howard would extend its lead to seven with 8:06 to play as Blaize Sagna dropped in a 3 to bring the score to 46-39.

South Plains would answer back with a 13-5 run to take a 52-51 lead with 4:51 to play as Dalph Panopio connected on a 3 from the top of the key. Panopio would hit from the outside again, this time at the 4:14 mark to give SPC a 55-51 advantage. The Hawks countered with a 6-0 run, retaking the lead at 57-55 on a triple from Jacoby Bishop with 2:14 remaining.

Trailing 61-57 with 12 seconds to go, sophomore Rivaldo Soares took an inbound pass from Philmon Gebrewhit and connected from the outside to get the Texans within one, 61-60. Following a timeout by South Plains, the Texans would still the inbound pass and call a timeout to set up a final play with 2.9 seconds to play. Getting the ball into the hands of Soares on the inbound, Soares drove the ball up the left side of the floor but was unable to convert as the contact at the rim went uncalled, allowing Howard to escape in the final seconds.

Soares finished with a team-high 14 points and six rebounds, dropping in 5 of 14 shots including a pair of 3s over 38 minutes. Panopio tallied 14 points, knocking down four 3s in the contest. Gebrewhit totaled 10 points and four boards as the Texans shot 42 percent from the field and 39.1 percent from distance.

Sagna finished with a game-high 16 points on 7 of 13 shooting for Howard while Bishop had 14 points and Smith netted 10. The Hawks shot 43.6 percent from the field and 35 percent from distance.

Bordayo’s Three Run Shot Sends Levelland to Seven-and-Oh in District

Senior Catcher Dylan Bordayo’s Three Run Shot the Difference for Levelland Friday

Dylan Bordayo’s first homerun of the season came on Friday and the three run blast send the Levelland Lobos to the winner’s column for the seventh time in 2021.

The Lobos would get two on the board in the first when Zaiden LeCroy would walk and Dylan Wolfe reached on a Sweetwater error. Blake Klose and Tyler Marrow would drive those two across and Levelland led two-to-nothing after one frame.

The big blow would come in the third.

With Levelland in front two-to-nothing, Dylen Wolfe would single and Blake Klose would walk setting a two on and one out for the Lobos. Sweetwater would run Dylan Bordayo to three-and-one and the senior catcher made them pay. Bordayo would rip a three run homerun to left-center and those three would be all Levelland would need.

Sweetwater would get on the board in the fourth on singles from Darian Carr and Leo Holsey but it would be the only two runs the Mustangs would get and Levelland went on for the five-two- win.

Levelland got five runs on eight hits with two errors and left eight while Sweetwater got just two runs on six hits with three errors and left six.

Joel Pena tossed his second district win of the season going six and two-thirds on the road giving up two runs and five hits, two walks and nine strikeouts. Dylen Wolfe pitched a save in a third of an inning allowing no runs and a hit.

Jake McCoy took the loss for the Mustangs working four innings and allowing five runs with four earned. Those came on five hits, three walks and three strikeouts. Tate Thompson worked three innings of scoreless relief allowing three hits, one walk and two strikeouts.

The Levelland Lobos move to seven-and-oh in district play and 15-and-five on the year as they have swept the Sweetwater Mustangs three-and-oh and shift their attention to Lubbock Estacado week two.

Coming into their fourth district game in 2021 the one-and-two Levelland Loboettes got back to 500 on Thursday night knocking off district leading Big Spring in a convincing way to get back into the hunt for a district title for 2021. Levelland would hand Big Spring their first loss in district 13-to-two in six innings.

Big Spring got on the board first on a walk to Jocelyn Gonzales followed by a RBI double from Kylee Lynch to take a one-to-nothing lead after a half inning.

The lead became Levelland’s on a single from Chloe Constantino followed by a RBI double from Angelia Gonzalez giving the Loboettes a two-to-one lead after one.

They would never trail again.

While Big Spring and Levelland got runners in the second, neither got runs again until the third.

Big Spring’s Jocelyn Gonzales would draw another walk and score on a RBI single from Jarah Wood to retie the game at two-all to the bottom of the third but that would be it for the Lady Steers.

Levelland would get two in the bottom of the third when Natalie Coronado reached on an error followed by singles from Chloe Constantio and Kiki Childers to retake the lead Levelland 4, Big Spring 2 after three.

Levelland would add another run in the fourth and another in the fifth to run the lead to Levelland 6, Big Spring 2 after five.
