AMARILLO – Wellington controlled the game from the get-go as the Lady Rockets downed New Deal 74-37 last Friday, Feb. 19. In the Class 2A regional quarterfinal, the game originally set for Guthrie had to be moved to Amarillo when Guthrie had no water due to the Arctic storm.
Junior Lady Rocket Kyla Kane’s 27 points landed her on the Press Pass Sports top performer list in the fourth round of the UIL state basketball playoffs. Kane tallied seven rebounds as well while Hadlee Gomez had five assists, Sicily Sumrall three steals and Keylonai Shrubs thee blocks.
“I’m really proud of the kids for their effort against New Deal,” said Coach Chris Sumrall. “They came out really focused and ready to play.”
Gomez added 14 points, Sumrall 12, K. Shrubs 11, Asia Shrubs five, Charley Wilbur three and Presley Kane two.
Normally, Wellington’s win over the Lady Lions would have advanced the Lady Rockets to the regional tournament. Due to COVID-19, UIL has made other arrangements for 2021. Rather than the traditional Levelland tournament, the Lady Rockets (22-5) will play the winner of the Ozona-Sudan-Ropes games at a time and place to be determined for the regional semi-final title.
