Sundown Dominates 5/6 2A Area Track and Field Meet

Sundown Area TrackTo say the Sundown Roughnecks and Roughettes won the 2017 2A Area 5/6 Track and Field Championships would probably a gross understatement. Dominated is the word as the Sundown Roughnecks racked up 171 points and 27 qualifying entries and the Roughettes totaled 237 points and 25 qualifying entries.

In fact, when the 2017 2A Region One Track and Field Championships open on at Ratliff Stadium in Odessa on Friday April 28th, only three events will not include a Sundown participant, that being the Boys High Jump, Boys Pole Vault and Boys 110 Meter Hurdles.

The Sundown Roughettes took gold in seven events including Andrea Sanchez in the 3200 Meter Run and 1600 Meter run while Hannah Jenkins won the 800 Meter Run and Jenna Legan took the gold in the 100 Meter Hurdles. Haven Wisdom added a gold from the field winning the Triple Jump while the Roughettes took first in all three relays for the day.

Alyzah McGlasson took silver in the 3200 Meter Run with Alexi Vigil adding second in the 400 Meter Dash and second in the Girls Long Jump. Alexis Terry won silver in the 300 Meter Hurdles while Lynzee Keys added second in the Girls Pole Vault and Kierstyn Ellington took the silver in the Triple Jump.

The Sundown Roughnecks grabbed three individual golds plus a win in the 4×100 Relay. They added six silvers including the 4×200 and 4×400 relays. Toss in three bronze medals for good measure.

Steven Quintanilla won the 3200 Meter Run while Jose Perez added second and Matt Cisneros added the bronze in the two mile.

Quintanilla would also win the 800 Meter Run while Bryce Spencer took the gold in the Boys Discus.

Link Wilkes took silver in the Triple Jump, Ladd Wilkes grabbed silver in the 100 Meter Dash and Isaac Hernandez running down second place in the 200 Meter Dash.

It’s the fifth consecutive win in the area meet for the Sundown Roughettes while the Roughnecks are modest three time defending champions.

The Morton Indians will advance a couple of athletes as well. Manuel Acosta won the 1600 Meter Run and grabbed a fourth in the 800 and Johnny Soliz took second in the 400 Meters.

The Smyer Bobcats will send a contingency as well. Ramon Lopez won the 300 Meter Hurdles and took second in the 110 Meter Hurdles. Aries Cisneros took fourth in the Boys Pole Vault.

The 2017 2A Region One Meet will be run on Friday April 28th and Saturday April 29th at Ratliff Stadium in Odessa.


Levelland Lobos Head for Areas After Dominating the 4A-2 District Meet

LoboLoyaltyThe Levelland Lobo Track and Field team is heading to the Area Track and Field Meet on Thursday in Canyon with a full head of steam after a dominating performance in the 4A-2 District meet last week.

With the top four in each event qualifying for the Area Meet the Levelland Lobos racked up 11 golds, three silvers, three bronze and three fourths totaling 20 entries in 17 events.

Daniel Hurn won the 100 Meters in 11.62 and the Triple Jump at 45′ 1.00”. He also picked up third in the Long Jump at 21′ 8.50”.

Cheaden Reyna won the 110 Meter Hurdles at 16.13 and the 300 Meter Hurdles at 40.55. He added the third in the Triple Jump at 43′ 8.50” and fourth in the Long Jump at 21′ 7.00”.

Isaac Vargas added to golds with a 3200 Meter Run win at 9:29.29 and a 1600 Meter Run win at 4:26.56.

Hiajamah Hudson took the gold in the Long Jump at 22′ 4.50” and second in the Triple Jump at 44′ 5.00”.

Mason Brogden took the 200 Meters at 23.74 while Braden Price won the Shot Put at 46′ 8.50”.

Levelland would also get a second from Jose Raul Ornelas in the 1600 Meter Run while Rodrigo Ornelas took second in the 3200 Meter Run and a fourth in the 1600 Meters.

TJ Brooks took third in the Pole Vault at 10′ 6.00” and Jaime Luz grabbed fourth also at 10′ 6.00”

Needless to say, the Levelland Lobos won the district with 194 points while Denver City took second at 142.

The Levelland Loboettes will have a contingency as well.

The Loboettes grabbed three slots in the Shot Put as Saron Mendoza won the event at 33′ 8.00. M’Kenzi Campbell grabbed second at 33′ 7.50” and Reina Vargas found the fourth slot.

Kaitlynn Whipple added second in the 3200 Meter Run at 13:23.31 and Jennifer Prado took second in the Pole Vault at 7′ 0.00”.

Levelland also picked up a third from Kazzi Spears in the High Jump, a third from Megan Latham in the 300 Meter Hurdles, a fourth from Sydney Ramirez in the 100 Meter Hurdles and a fourth from Annie Dewbre in the 800 Meters.

The Lobos will send their 4×200 Meter Relay and 4×400 Meter Relay as both teams took gold. The Loboettes send the 4×400 Meter Relay after they would win a run off against Lubbock Estacado to take the fourth slot.

It will certainly be a packed bus going north to Canyon Randall High School on Thursday for the 2017 4A Area Track and Field Meet and the best of luck to our Lobos and Loboettes.

#17 Levelland Lobos Survive a Scare from Denver City, Five-to-Four Win Clinches a Share of a District Title

LoboLoyaltyThe Denver City Mustangs gave the #17 Levelland Lobos a test on Tuesday night but a five-to-four win on Tuesday night. The win, coupled with a Lubbock Estacado loss, earns the Levelland Lobos at least a share of a district title.

Denver City got on the board in the first when Ivan Villareal would single, steal second and score on a RBI single from Luis Rodriguez. Denver City led one-to-nothing after a half of an inning.

That lead was short lived.

Zack Estrada opened the bottom of the frame reaching on a Denver City error. He would be forced out on a fielder’s choice off the bat of Tameron Duran setting the Lobos with one on and one out. After Nolbeto Pena flew out for the second out of the inning, the red hot Levelland offense struck. Nick Gerber blasted a RBI triple to deep center scoring Duran and Gerber would score moments later on a RBI single from Jacob Ochoa. Ochoa would score on a triple to center from Tyler Haywood and Levelland was in front three-to-one after one.

Both teams went quietly in the second but Levelland got back on the board in the third.

Levelland started what looked to be a big inning when Nolberto Pena would single to left but was thrown out at second trying to stretch the double. Nick Gerber got aboard when he was hit by a pitch but was promptly thrown out trying to steal second. It looked like an inning that would not be but Levelland still managed a run. Jacob Ochoa would reach on a Denver City error and after going to second on a passed ball he would score on a RBI single from Tanner Marrow and Levelland led four-to-one through three.

The Mustangs got on the board in the fifth and cut the lead in half. Michael Garcia would double and after stealing second, he scored on a Levelland throwing error and Denver City cut the lead to Levelland 4, Denver City 2 to the bottom of the fifth.

Levelland got the run right back.

Nick Gerber would again be hit by a pitch and this time would go to second on a ground ball and to third on a passed ball. That would set up a second RBI from Tanner Marrow as a sac fly to right pushed Gerber across and Levelland was in front five-to-two through five.

It was nearly not enough.

Denver City would get a one out single in the seventh from Michael Garica and a walk to Vega setting Denver City up with two one and one out. Garcia would score on a ground out from Ivan Villereal cutting the lead to five-to-three and prompting the Lobos to go to the bull pen for Nick Gerber. A passed ball would score Vega and cut the lead to Levelland 5, Denver City 4. Gerber would surrender a a single and a walk before putting the fire out. Gerber would go two-and-oh to Irving Mijares before throwing three straight strikes and retiring Mijares with the strike out looking and ending the contest with Levelland winning it five-to-four.

Levelland got five runs on seven hits with one error while Denver City got four runs on seven hits with three errors.

#17 Levelland moves their record to 24-and-three on the year and more importantly get to seven-and-one in district play with just two to go. Coupled with the loss from Lubbock Estacado the Levelland Lobos clinch a share of a district title and with another win the Lobos could clinch the district championship outright. They travel to Lamesa on Friday and to Seminole on Tuesday next week.

Denver City moves to three-and-five on the year and are now fighting for their playoff lives as they fall from the top four. They host Brownfield on Friday and Lubbock Estacado on Tuesday of next week.

#8 Levelland Loboettes Clinch A Share of a District Title with Walk Off Three-to-Two Win Over Denver City

LoboLoyaltyThe Levelland Loboettes, ranked number eight in the state, picked up a walk off three-to-two win Tuesday night over Denver City and the win clinches at least a share of the district title for the 20-and-four Loboettes.

Levelland got all they wanted from a solid Denver City Fillies squad.

Levelland got on the board first and in the bottom of the first. Miranda Villegas led off the game with a triple off the left-center wall and scored on a double into the left-center alley off the bat of Hannah Hinojosa. Hinojosa scored on a RBI single from Mica Contreras and Levelland led two-to-nothing after one.

Denver City would get on the board in the third when Jewel Santillan opened the inning with a solo home run to left and cut the Loboette lead to two-to-one after three.

The Fillies would tie it in the fifth. Jewel Santillan would walk to start the frame but went away on five-four fielder’s choice off the bat of Denisse Sanez setting Denver City one on and one out. Saenz would advance to second on a passed ball and score on a RBI from Haleigh Gonzales tying the game at two-to-two through five.

The Levelland Loboettes would rally and in an odd way.

Mia Rendon was hit by a pitch to open the bottom of the seventh and after stealing second Miranda Villegas would come to the plate with a runner at second and nobody out. Villegas would scorch a ground ball to third and on the play, Denver City would throw the ball away. Rendon would take two bases on the throwing error and the Levelland Loboettes took the walk off win three-to-two.

Levelland got three runs on six hits with one error and seven left while Denver City scored two runs on seven hits with two errors and seven left.

Christen Covarrubias started the contest and worked an three and a third allowing one run on six hits, no walks and four strike outs. Kriston Montgomery took the win in three and two-thirds allowing one run on one hit, three walks and three strike outs.

Heidi Gonzales took the loss working two and two-thirds while allowing two runs on three hits, two walks, a hit batter and one strike out. Jewel Santillan worked the back three and a third allowing one unearned run on three hits, one walk, a hit batter and no strike outs.

Levelland’s win moves them to 20-and-four on the year and eight-and-one in district play. It also clinches the Loboettes at least a share of a district championship. The Loboettes have just one to go with a trip to Lamesa on Friday. A win would be an out right district title.

Denver City moves to five-and-four on the year and sits third in the district and their seeding won’t change. Lamesa who is four-and-five can’t catch the Fillies and Seminole at seven-and-two can’t fall far enough to give the Fillies at shot at second place.

Levelland needs one more win, they travel to Lamesa on Friday, to secure an outright district championship and a one seed. A win at Lamesa would do the trick or a loss by Seminole. A Seminole loss seems very unlikely as the seven-and-two Maidens wrap up the regular season with a trip to winless Lubbock Estacado.

The Loboettes will be in Lamesa on Friday with first pitch scheduled for 5:30pm.

The opening round of playoffs is slated for the weekend of April the 28th.
