8B from Coach Arnold –
Hooker Middle School came to town to take on the Lady Apaches B squad on
Tuesday afternoon. The Lady Apache B team stands at 0 – 6, while the Hooker
team sports seven wins. The first quarter saw the Hooker team taking a
commanding lead and coasting to a 44 – 2 win. Kylene Hyunh was the only
player scoring for the Apaches with a jump shot made early in the 3rd
quarter. The Lady Apaches continued their recent resurgence with good man
to man defense. At this point in the season, the mechanical aspects of the
game are still what most plagues our inability to stop other teams from
scoring and conversely, our ability to score as well. Lady Apaches will
take a short hiatus from competition with the next game against Garden City
– Horace Good at home on November 18th. Games start at 4 PM in the Prairie
View Elementary gym.
7th Lady Warriors faced the Hugoton Eagles last night!
7A was off to a slow start trailing the Lady Eagles in the first quarter.
In the second quarter the Lady Warriors turned on the defense pulling ahead
and leading at the half. The second half the Lady Warriors played together
and brought home the win, winning 28-17. Leading the Lady Warriors in
scoring were Madyson Hammond and Trinity Olvera with 10 points each, Shiaa
Dunlap scoring 6 points and Rebecca Davis scoring 2 points.
7B struggled offensively but played their best defense of the season. The
Lady Warriors fell to the Lady Eagles only giving up 6 points to a score of
zero for the Lady Warriors.
From Coach Babinec
The Eisenhower Warrior Girls B- Team played a pair of games Saturday against upstate Hays and Great Bend earning a split for the day.
In the first game against Hays, the Lady Warriors had multiple chances early in the first quarter to put pressure on the Falcons. However, poor shooting ultimately allowed the Falcons to take control in the 2nd quarter. The Warriors played tough the remainder of the game falling by a 32-9 score. Karolina Espinoza scored 6 pts, Jasmin Huaman 2 pts and Marely Macias 1pt.
The second game against Great Bend saw the Lady’s pick up the tempo. Between Karolina Espinioza and Jasmin Huaman getting quick steals on full pressure the Warriors were able to maintain control in the first half leading 20-6. The Ladies continued to play well in the second half finishing with a 34-17 win. Karolina Espinoza had a season high 14 pts, Stacy Bangs and Jasmin Huaman each added 6 pts, while Arely Calderon & Alidah Amando pitched in 4 pts a piece.
The girls responded well in these games. Everyone in some way is contributing when they have court time. Next game for the Ladies is Tuesday at home against Hugoton.
8B from Coach Arnold – *
The Lady Apaches B team basketball finished a tough three game set on
Saturday losing to both Great Bend and Hays. The Apaches went to Dodge City
on Thursday and fell 32-3, to a much more physical and taller team than we
have faced yet. Scoring by the Apaches was all done by Destiny Gonzalez.
The defensive pressure by the Apaches was more on display, but
unfortunately, offset by the taller Cardinals. Saturday’s action at home
had the Apaches taking on the Great Bend Panthers in the opening game. The
game took a defensive look in the first period with both teams having
reasonably tough luck shooting. The first quarter ended with the Panthers
ahead, six to four. Lynette Alonso scored both baskets for the Apaches and
finished with 5 points on the day. Destiny Gonzalez had the other 3 points,
with a free throw in the second quarter and a layup in the third. The eight
points scored by the Apaches is a season high. The final game of the day
had the Hays Falcons dominating the Lady Apaches taking away a 52 – 4,
victory. Destiny Gonzalez scored the season’s first 3 – point goal of the
season in the first quarter and Lexi Carswell added a free throw in the 4th
quarter. Kylene Hyunh, Giselle Mesta, Abigail Morales and Akeylah Dean,
have developed into the defensive specialist for the defense. Although
these Lady Apaches don’t take many shots, they still have developed their
man-to-man skills and their aggressiveness on defensive. Lady Apaches next
on the hardwood at home, Tuesday, November 9, against Hooker Middle School.
Game time is 4 PM. Hope you can stop by and watch the girls play.
