WFHS Swept at Denton Ryan, Knights Win in Amarillo

It was a tough night for both the Coyotes and Lady Coyotes in Denton Thursday night as they made up their twice-postponed meeting with Billy Ryan.

First the Lady Coyotes took a 64-45 beating from the 1st-place Lady Raiders, which dropped Old High to 7-5 in the final District 4-4A standings.

The Lady Coyotes (20-9 overall) finished 4th in the district, which gives them the unlucky playoff matchup of undefeated State Number 1 Canyon, who went 31-0 (14-0) while playing in a tough District 3-4A.

They will meet Monday night at 6 PM in Childress.

Coyotes' Cold Shooting Leads to Loss

In the boys' game, the Coyotes were blown out by #23 Ryan, 60-23.

WFHS shot just 8 of 47 from the field for the game, being held scoreless on 0/16 shooting in the second quarter.

The Coyotes are still playoff-bound, though, and could finish as high as third in District 4-4A, as they are tied with Little Elm at 6-4.

Old High travels to The Colony (7-2) Friday night, then finishes the year at home against 1-9 Denton High. Little Elm faces Rider (3-7) and The Colony to close the season.

The two teams split in the regular season, each winning at home, so if both finish tied, a coin flip would decide 3rd vs 4th place.

Notre Dame Edges Ascension on the Road

The Notre Dame Knights bounced back from a tough rivalry loss Tuesday night to defeat Amarillo Ascension Academy 65-61 in Amarillo Thursday night.

The win improves Notre Dame to 7-12 and 4-5 in TAPPS District 1-A.

They'll stay on the road Friday night, heading down to Lubbock to close out the regular season against Christ the King.
