Lady Lopes Basketball Season Starts

Published Nov. 11, 2012 @ 9:14 p.m.

Tuesday night excitement filled the air with cheers from the "Loud Crowd" at the Antelope Arena as the injury plagued Lady Lopes took to the court to face last year’s regional finalist team, the Tulia Lady Hornets in the 2012-13 season opener.  The Lady Lopes exhibited a great deal of quickness and perseverance to stay close to the aggressive Tulia team, but unfortunately came up short. 

Five Lady Lopes had double figures on the night.  Kelbie Oden and Haily Berry scored ten points each, Callie Odom put in 11 including three 3-pointer shots, Mattie Smith had 12, and Taylor Osborn soundly contributed 17 points.

On Saturday, the Varsity Lady Lopes struggled coming out after the half against a quick and aggressive Lamesa team.  Team fouls plagued the Lady Lopes sending the Lady Golden Tornadoes to the line numerous times for a total of 20 free throw points.

The junior varsity Lady Lopes played a valiant first half scoring 22 in the season opener Tuesday against Tulia.  However, due to injuries, many back-up players were forced to step up and play positions they were not familiar with.  Yet they never gave up and showed great attitudes.   Chelby Morris scored 9 and Kelsey Griffin had 7. 

The Junior Varsity played again on Saturday and experienced more than 30 turnovers in their devastating defeat versus Lamesa.  The sub-varsity shot poorly from the floor and missed thirteen free throws in the 48-31 loss.  Freshman Quincy Quintana led the Lady Lopes with 7 points.
