Dalhart faced off against the #3 ranked team in the state Friday night, and the young Dalhart squad held their own the first quarter. Levelland gradually pulled away to defeat the Lady Wolves, 50 -35. Dalhart is still looking for their first district win at 0-2 in district play.  

Brynn Dunham tied the game early at 3 with two free throws. Tiffany Schumacher hit a jump shot to make the score 6-7.  Jeana Sybesma followed with a basket to make the score 8-9 after a Dalhart time out. That was as close as Dalhart got, and at the end of the first quarter Dalhart trailed 8-14.  

Levelland got six points in a row to start the second quarter, forcing a Dalhart time out with 5:35 left in the half, as Coach Klafka wanted to put a stop to the easy baskets that the Lady Lobos were getting.  Tiffany Schumacher hit a couple of shots plus a free throw to make the score 11-29. Jordan Banks nailed a three-point shot to make the halftime score 14-32.

Jeana Sybesma made a layup to start the second half. Mallory Jeffers scored on an inbound pass to make the score 18-34.  Tiffany made a three for 21-38, but the Lady Wolves trailed 21-40 at the end of the third period.  Tiffany scored on an inbound play to make the score 23-40.  Jeana made a five-foot jump shot to add more points at 25-43.  Jonna Gallegos followed with a layup plus a free throw with 3:54 left in the game to make the score 28-43.  Tiffany then added a free throw, and Brynn added a layup to make the score 31-46. The Lady Wolves took another time out with 2:34 left in the game.   Tiffany made a layup with 42 seconds left and Jeana added another layup to end the game with the final score 35-50.
