Loboettes Fall at Hereford and Are Still Looking for a First District Win

loboloyaltyThe Levelland Loboettes took a 10-and-20 record on the road to Hereford and the 25-8, 25-13, 25-8 loss to the Lady Whitefaces leave the Loboettes still looking for their first district win heading into the turn.

Levelland was out killed 35-to-12 in the loss while Hereford hung three blocks compared to Levelland’s two.

The Lady Whitefaces hung three service aces against four faults while Levelland faulted four times with one ace.

Michaela Watkins led Levelland with four kills while Kaylee McCarter tacked on three. Brooke Lamb and Annie Dewbre added two kills and one block each.

Hereford got nine kills and one block from Taytum Stow and eight kills and one block from Carmen Flood . Darcy Dodd added seven kills in the win.

Bonnie Vallejo served for 14 points while Miranda Acosta took 13 points and two aces.

With the win, Hereford remains unbeaten in district and the three-and-oh Lady Whitefaces meet the three-and-oh Canyon High Lady Eagles on Saturday for a battle of district leaders.

Levelland is in a near “must win” situation on Saturday as they host the Lubbock Estacado Lady Matadors and in a five team district, where four teams go to playoffs, both teams come in a oh-and-three.

The winner would climb out of the cellar and would improve their playoff opportunity significantly.

The Lobottes host the Lady Matadors on Saturday with Freshman and Junior Varsity serving at 12:00pm and Varsity at 1:00pm.

Catch the Loboettes live on KLVT AM1230 and with Loboette Pregame Show starting at 12:30pm.
