LoneStar Varsity Athlete of the Week is a Local Two Fer, Villegas for the Loboettes, Huey for the Roughnecks

With the quality of athletes we have in the KLVT listening area, we lots of area athletes nominated for the LoneStar Varsity Athlete of the Week but this week its a two fer.

Levelland’s Miranda Villegas is on the list as the Loboette right fielder when three-for-five on Friday in a Loboette win over Lameasa for a district championship. Not only was the sophomore three-for-five, she drove in five runs and just missed hitting the cycle as she tagged a double, triple and a home run. Yes, she missed the single.

Sundown’s Christian Huey is on the boys side of the card as the Roughneck tossed a shut out in the Roughneck win over New Home on Friday.

You can vote on the LoneStar Varsity Athlete of the Week from the their website.

Mendiaz Tosses Fifth District Win in Shut Out Fashion, #17 Levelland Lobos Win 2017 4A District Two Championship

LoboDistrictChampsJunior Jorge Mendiaz went to the mound for the #17 Levelland Lobos on Friday night and while winning his fifth district win. He did it in shut out fashion as the Levelland Lobos clinched the 2017 4A District Two Championship with an 11-to-nothing win over the Lamesa Golden Tornadoes.

Levelland would get two aboard in the first frame but went away empty handed and the first inning went by scoreless.

The Levelland Lobos would get on the board in the top of the second. Tyler Haywood blast a one triple to deep center. One pitch later Tanner Marrow would push Haywood across on a ground ball and Levelland took the lead at one-to-nothing after one.

Little did anyone know that would be enough. Nobody bothered to clue in the Lobo offense.

The Lobos would hang four more in the third. Zack Estrada would reach hit by a pitch. While stealing second he would advance to third on a Lamesa throwing error. He scored moments later on a sacrifice fly from Nolberto Pena pushing the lead to Levelland 2, Lamesa 0 with two out in the second. The Lobos would get more. Nick Gerber would single up the middle and score on a RBI triple from Jacob Ochoa. Ochoa would score on a second triple from Tyler Haywood and score on an RBI single from Tanner Marrow. Levelland got three runs with two out and led Lamesa five-to-nothing through three.

Levelland tossed up four more in the fourth.

Zack Estrada and Tameron Duran would drop back-to-back singles. Estrada would score on a Lamesa error and Nick Gerber would drive in Duran and Pena on a RBI single. Gerber would score on an RBI single from Tanner Marrow as he collected his third RBI of the night. The inning netted four more for the Lobos and Levelland led nine-to-nothing to the fifth.

Although the Lobos would not find a run in the fifth, they would find two more in the sixth.

Levelland grabbed two on a Nick Gerber single, two Lamesa errors and a couple of wild pitches.

The two runs would put the game into a final in six innings with the #17 Levelland Lobos winning 11-to-nothing in six innings. The win means a district title for the Levelland Lobos and just the third district title in school history according to sources.

Levelland got 11 runs on 12 hits with two errors and six left while Lamesa score no runs on just two hits with six errors and four left.

Jorge Mendiaz was dazzling again as he pitched his fifth district win of the year. He threw six shutout innings while allowing just two hits with no walks and a hit batter while striking out four.

Lamesa pitched by committee as Justice Baltazar took the loss in the start. He worked three innings allowing five runs on six hits, one walk, two hit batters and one strike out.

John Espino worked two and a third before having a ball lined off his ankle in the sixth. He allowed five runs with three earned on six hits and two strike outs.

David Moreno closed the contest working two-thirds of an inning. He allowed one run on no hits, two walks, and two strike outs.

The #17 Levelland Lobos move to 25-and-three on the year and moving their district record to eight-and-one on the season. With a two game lead over second place Lubbock Estacado, the Levelland Lobos have clinched their first district championship in quite sometime.

Early research indicates that only on two other occasions have the Levelland Lobos won a district championship. The last one in 1971.

“We are truly blessed as a team,” said Levelland Lobo Coach Brent Paris after the win. “We are blessed with great people. Great people means we have a great team environment in the dugout and the clubhouse. It has equaled a lot of wins.”

Levelland has one game to play in the regular season as they head to Seminole on Tuesday night to take on the Indians.

#8 Levelland Loboettes Win 18-to-7 Barn Burner at Lamesa and Clinch 4A-2 District Championship

LoboetteDistrictChampsThe #8 Levelland Loboettes have averaged over 13 runs per game through 2017 and Friday night was no different as the Loboettes won a barn burner in Lamesa 18-to-seven and with the win clinch the 4A-2 District Championship.

Levelland wasted no time getting on the board as Ashley Lopez hit a two run home run in the top of the first and Levelland jumped in front two-to-nothing.

More Loboettes in the second when Maci Vegara would walk and Valerie Maravilla reached on an error. Both would score on a RBI double from Mia Rendon. Miranda Villegas would push Rendon across on a double and score on a Chloe Dunn ground ball. Ashley Lopez would drive in Dunn and Levelland was in front seven-to-nothing to the bottom of the second.

Lamesa got on the board in the bottom of the second on a hit batter, a double and a Levelland error cutting the lead to Levelland 7, Lamesa 2 after two but it really mattered not.

Vegara would again walk to start the third and the Loboettes were up and running again. A second double from Rendon, a triple from Villegas, a single from Dunn and a double from Lopez pushed across four more for the Loboettes as they pushed the lead to 12-to-two to the bottom of the third.

Lamesa went quietly in the third and the Loboettes added more in the fourth.

Covarrubias would be hit by a pitch and Vegara would walk for the third time setting up the red hot Miranda Villegas. Villegas would crank a three run shot to straight away center and the home run put Levelland in front 15-to-two to the bottom of the fourth.

Lamesa would stage a rally in the bottom of the fourth behind three singles, a walk and Levelland error but the five run fourth barely made a dent as the Loboettes led through four 15-to-seven.

Levelland added three more in the fifth and that was all Lamesa wanted.

The Golden Tornadoes would got one-two-three in the bottom of the fifth and the Loboettes would take the 18-to-seven win in five innings as well as the 2017 4A-2 District Championship, closing district at nine-and-one.

#8 Levelland got 18 runs on 14 hits with three errors while Lamesa tallied seven runs on six hits with one error.

“We felt pretty good going in,” said Loboette Coach Albert Rivera after the game. “I ask our hitters if everyone was feeling good and they all told me yes. They didn’t bring up defense but we didn’t end up needing much.”

Miranda Villegas just missed the cycle in five trips to the plate as she came up short the single. Yes, the single as she drove in five on a double, triple and a home run.

Ashley Lopez also added a three hit game including a home run and four RBI. Mia Rendon drove in four on two doubles out of the nine slot.

Christen Covarrubias pitched the win working three and a third while allowing six runs with two earned. Those came on four hits and one walk.

Kirsten Montgomery worked an inning and a third in relief allowing one run earned on two hits and a strike out.

Levelland closes the regular season #8 in the state and 21-and-four on the year with two of the four losses coming to 6A squads Midland Lee and Midland High. They win the district at nine-and-one on the year after dropping their district opener to Seminole.

Lamesa closes the district at four-and-six.

No word as of yet who the Loboettes will open playoffs against but that should be known late Saturday and the Bi-District set up should start on Friday April 28th.
