loboloyaltyThe Levelland Lobos returned to the Dimmitt Tournament early Friday morning and while nearly every Lobo four points, the Lobos rolled by Dimmitt 61-to-41 to move to nine-and-two on the year and two-and-one at the Dimmitt Tournament.

Levelland started solid on both ends as Dimmitt would get just one field goal that came very late in the first quarter and while the Bobcats got just two points Straton Dobson would score five while Isaiah Salazar and Reid O’Connor both connected on threes putting Levelland in front 14-to-two after one.

Things got better for the Bobcats though out the game as Dimmitt managed a seven point second but Levelland countered with seven from Jacob Ramirez and 17 in total in the second to lead 31-to-nine at the half.

Levelland outscored Dimmitt again in the third 19-to-ten and led by 31 after three.

The fourth turned into run and shoot quarter for the Bobcats as they tried to battle their way back in. Johnny Quiroz got 14 in the final quarter including four threes and Dimmitt won the fourth 22-to-11 but it was way to little way to late as Levelland went on for the 61-to-41 win.

Only two Lobos found double figures but nearly every Lobo scored.

Broderick Golightly tossed in 11 while Reid O’Connor added ten, Straton Dobson scored nine and Isaiah Salazar went for eight. Jacob Ramirez added seven, Michael Estrada took five, Connor Barnett and Joel White had four each and Caden Beatty tossed in three in the win.

Dimmitt would get 16 from Marquaious Gonzales and 15 from Johnny Quiroz in the loss.

Levelland did a lot of things well.

The Lobos would hit 23-of-15 from the floor at 45% while connecting on six-of-15 behind the arch at 40%.

That while holding Dimmitt to 15-for-51 from the floor in their home gym and forcing 20 turnovers on the Bobcats.

The Levelland Lobos improve to nine-and-two on the year and two-and-one at the Dimmitt Tournament and return to the home of the Bobcats for a high noon shootout on Saturday against a team to be determined by the bracket.

Snapshot Numbers are Out for UIL Classifications and Changes are Likely on the Way

UIL-logoThe Texas Univerisity Interscholatic League has released their snapshot numbers for 2018-19 and there very well maybe some chances on the way.

The 4A line has been drafted to rest between 505 to 1149 and while Levelland falls right in the middle at 773, the number puts the Lobos below the 4A-1 and 4A-2 division line for football which comes in a 789.

Other notables from the 4A field includes the Canyon High Eagles reporting in at 1128 which would move them into the 4A-1 field. On the flip side of that coin, Abilene Wylie is reporting 1164 which would move the Bulldogs into the 5A field.

Other teams that could impact the future of Levelland include Pampa remaining in the 4A-1 field while Seminole and Andrews both arrive in that frame as well. Lubbock Estacado and Borger could both be coming down to 4A-2 which could very well set Levelland joining those two as well as Perryton and Dalhart who remain in 4A-2.

While Lamesa remains in the 4A-2 field, numbers indicate that Brownfield, Denver City and Bushland maybe among the teams dropping into the 3A field.

Littlefield, Muleshoe and Shallowater all look to be holding in the 3A-1 field.

Sundown and Olton are still reporting in as 2A-1 schools along with New Deal, however, Abernathy is showing a jump to 3A-2.

No other major suprises appear to be on the horizon as Lubbock Monterey, Lubbock Cooper, Lubbock High and Lubbock Coronado remain in the 5A field while Frenship continues to show 6A numbers.

Springlake-Earth, while showing their numbers are coming in inside the 1A-1 totals are still listed as playing 11 man football. The Wolverines are showing 85 which would in theory move them to 1A-1.

As anticipated the Morton Indians are showing a 1A-1 number at 97 placing them about seven students below the 1A-1 cut line at 104.9.

Ropes, Whiteface and Meadow are still reporting 1A-1 numbers while Whitharral is reporting in at 1A-2.
