Wolverine cross country team takes third at state

By DEREK LOPEZ

The Springlake-Earth Wolverines’ cross country team brought home bronze on Saturday as they competed at the State cross country meet in Round Rock.

“It was a wild weekend. We left around 11 p.m. Friday night. We stopped in Lubbock to pick up JR Vargas who broke his collarbone during the football game Friday night,” Head Coach Daniel Gutierrez said. “We made it to Round Rock around 5:30 a.m. and the boys slept for about three hours in the hotel and then woke up.”

He added, “The heart and dedication that these young men showed – because once they found out one of their teammates was not going to run with them they dedicated themselves to trying to win the meet or place in the top three. It was a big deal Vargas was injured and couldn’t run, but it was even more amazing seeing the boys step up for him and compete because Vargas had been putting in extra work running and pulling sleds the past two weeks.

Wildcats looking to end season on a high note

By DEREK LOPEZ

The Littlefield Wildcats’ varsity football team is coming off of their first district victory last Friday over rival Muleshoe as they get set for their season finale at River Road.

“From the start, I thought we really attacked it. We drove right down in there, got inside the five-yard line and didn’t get in the end zone. I’m gonna take that one, we have to get in the end zone in those situations,” Head Coach Brent Green said. “Then we got a turnover inside the 10-yard line and don’t get in again. It wasn’t a good situation, those are the types of things that can cost you a ballgame, but our kids responded.”

He added, “I thought our defense played great all night. They [Muleshoe] made some plays, but for the most part our defense really stood in there and bowed their necks and really got after them. I was really proud of our defensive performance.”
