HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL
With their football team fresh off a two-game playoff ride, the Dilley Wolves fielded their complete roster for the first time this season in dropping a 69-40 non-district basketball decision to Laredo Harmony last week.
Prior to that, with a short-handed team, Dilley fell 80-39 to Utopia in their first game of the year.
“It was our first game having all of our football guys back and with only one day of practice prior to game,” DHS Head Coach James Rodriguez said. “They showed some good things putting up 19 points in the first, but we lacked team chemistry and conditioning as the game unfolded.
“We’ll mesh together soon and it’ll get better no doubt. I’m excited for what this season is going to bring when we’re peaking.”
Benjamin Gonzales paced the team with 15 points while Dorian Aranda added 12 points.
Dilley hosted D’Hanis in a non-district contest Tuesday evening and will be in action at the Natalia tournament this weekend.
In junior high action, three of the four Dilley Pups’ teams topped Hondo in non-district action. The 8th grade A team won a 53-22 decision to improve to 2-0 while the 7th grade A team won 51-21. Dilley’s 8th B team won 20-19 to remain unbeaten at 2-0 and the 7th B team fell 20-11.
Isaiah Kinsey had 20 points and Matthew Montoya 17 points for the 8th A team while De’Sean Arriazola added nine points for the 8th B team.
The Pups will host Lytle on Thursday, November 30 while the 8th grade will be at the Nixon-Smiley tournament on December 2.
