Spearman gets first playoff win in 10 years

On a very busy Monday to open the UIL high school girls’ playoffs, the Spearman Lynxettes were able to end a decade-long streak earning their first gold ball since 2014 thanks to a 36-20 victory against Slaton during a Class 3A bi-district matchup at the Caprock Activity Center.

The District 1-3A champions move to the area round for the first time in 10 years where the Lynxettes (25-5 overall) will get Tuesday’s winner between Lamesa and Alpine at a time and place to be determined.

Spearman used strong defense and enough offense to go up 20-10 by halftime. In the second half, that same recipe continued to show success as the Lynxettes never allowed Slaton (24-9) to score more than five points in a quarter.

Senior leader and West Texas A&M signee Braylen Lusby did the damage leading the way with a game-high 19 points.

Gruver opens playoff push in style 

A team that’s no stranger to the postseason picked up where they left off the past two years.

The reigning two-time Region I champion Gruver Lady Hounds took care of Quanah to open the Class 2A playoffs with a 47-22 victory in Groom during a bi-district game on Monday.

The Lady Hounds, who were the 2021 state champions and state runner-up a year ago, have now won 14 of their last 15 playoff contests.

Quanah didn’t have an answer for junior sharp-shooter Hannon Lankford. Left open on multiple occasions, Lankford never hesitated knocking down five 3-pointers including three in the third quarter alone to finish with a game-high 20 points. Teammate Brooklyn Vasquez also scored in double-digits with 13.

Gruver (17-15) will take on Floydada (25-3) in the area round on Friday on the campus of Wayland Baptist University in Plainview with a time to be determined.
