AHS downs Tascosa

The Amarillo High Lady Sandies had no trouble going to visit crosstown rival Tascosa, leaving with an 80-51 victory on Tuesday night at the THS Activity Center.

Thanks to an upset by Palo Duro knocking off Plainview 52-47, AHS (15-2) also pulled into a first place tie with the Lady Bulldogs (15-6) for the District 3-5A lead at 6-1. The Lady Sandies even clinched a playoff spot in the process. Palo Duro put themselves in good place for playoff spot with the victory moving to 15-6, 3-4.

Amaia Chiles, Zeryhia Aokuso, and Briley Barnes did it all for the Lady Sandies. Chiles led AHS with 15 points, followed by Aokuso and Barnes, who had 13 a piece. Despite the loss, Jessalyn Gonzales ended up with a game-high 27 for Tascosa.


Battle of Wheeler County didn’t disappoint

It was a classic showdown in the latest installment of the Wheeler County rivalry. The Lady Mustangs were able to fend off a valiant effort from Shamrock, 57-54, in overtime on Tuesday night. Wheeler’s win was pivotal. The Lady Mustangs (6-12 overall) are now 3-5 in District 2-2A, one game up on the Lady Irish (8-19, 2-6) for the fourth and final playoff spot. Perla Almanza was the difference maker in the game, scoring a game-high 30 points for Wheeler. Despite a tough loss, Shamrock senior Kynnan Shields poured in 27 points as she has now gone over 1,500 points and rebounds for her career.
