Kangaroos hang on late to record first district victory

Lady Roos complete varsity sweep with 66-28 runaway

(Continued)

Sam Couch had a handful of points, with Lane Guest, Scoggin and Connor Turan each had four points.

The Lady Roos improved to 5-4 in district play, with little resistance from Arlington Sam Houston’s Lady Texans, as the WHS girls won in a walkover, 66-28. 

Nine different WHS girls got on the scoreboard, with Abbye Shearmire’s 16 points the game high on the night. Kaelin Davis followed with nine, while Kyra Hasley and Jada Lewis had eight each.

By the end of the first half, Weatherford had already built a 23-point advantage and the Lady Texans never made a serious run at changing the outcome. The Lady Roos’ 5-4 mark leaves them in a tie with North Crowley for the fourth playoff seed, with five games left in district play.

The Weatherford varsity teams will host Arlington Bowie on Tuesday, with the Lady Roos set for a 6 p.m. tip.
