Armes, Gruver stay red-hot in win over West Texas High

Despite already claiming the District 1-2A championship, the Gruver Greyhounds haven’t let the gas off the pedal in District 1-2A.

On Friday night, the Greyhounds continued to roll by sweeping the season series from West Texas High behind a big shooting night from Caden Armes in a 64-50 victory at the Greyhound Gym.

Gruver (19-9 overall) moves to a perfect 9-0 in district while the Comanches (20-7) fall into a second-place tie with Stratford (8-9) in the league race at 5-4.

Armes had his shot going most of the night knocking down five 3-pointers to finish with a game-high 23 points. Colt Mathews complimented Armes scoring 13 points while Briggs Satterfield added 11.

Canadian keeps cruising 

In one of the more unlikely stories of the new year, the Canadian Wildcats, a team known for their gridiron play, are showing they can get it done on the hardwood as well.

The Wildcats stayed perfect in District 1-3A once more by taking a hard-fought home win over River Road 53-44 at home on Friday night.

Canadian (14-3 overall), a team that didn’t start basketball practice until right before the Christmas Break, has already wrapped up the District 1-3A championship with a 9-0 mark. River Road (17-14) is locked in the playoffs as well in the middle of the pack at 5-4.

Riggs Pennington was the difference maker for Canadian posting a game-high 22 points with 14 of those coming in the first half. Teammates Camren Cavalier and Connor Miller each followed with 11 points.

Freshman Kade Schneider helped the Bushland Falcons secure second place out of District 1-3A with his game-high 15 points in a big time 53-47 road win at Spearman on Friday night.

Corey Stancell along with teammate Ryder McElroy each had 19 points that were enough to lift Farwell past a tough Panhandle team 63-54 in overtime keeping the Steers unbeaten at 9-0 in District 3-2A.

Booker’s Hagen Chisum continued his stellar play lighting up Sunray for 23 points in a 55-39 win for the Kiowas.
