CALL TODAY: 806.620.1422 LOBO MINERALS, LLC PO Box 1800 Lubbock, TX 79408-1800 BY QUIXEM RAMIREZ Under the backdrop of a fading sun and in front of a small crowd, Lehman gifts soccer coach Nauri Garcia visited with former mem- bers of the team before the pro- grams seventh annual alumni game. The tradition began in earnest when team captain Audrey Gaytan passed away in 2010. At the time of her death, Garcia called Gaytan the "heart and soul" of the program during her four-year stint with Lehman. "It's a moment we share together because a lot of the girls are con- nected to her," Garcia said. Garcia appreciates the opportu- Winter Permian Basin ABSOLUTE PUBLIC AUCTION nity to revisit his past and rekindle old relationships that were built on Lobo Field before the grind of the 2016-17 season begins. "To see all these young ladies come up, now they're morns and nurses and things like that," Garcia said. "It feels good to say 'wow, look at you' and connect as a family. It's a good tradition that we do every year." Vith the season beginning Thursday at the McAllen showcase, the alumni game also serves as a regular season tune-up for the team. Garcia said he hasn't seen his team in almost weeks since they were released for winter break. "It's an opportunity to get the dust off and enter the season as best as we can," Garcia said. "I wanted to see how much we lost over the break so when we come back tomorrow for practice, we need to know what to jump on and improve." Garcia structured the alumni game in three periods of 20 min- utes each, totaling a 60-minute game. The varsity team played in the first and third periods, while the junior varsity squad took the pitch for the second period. When his team re-convened Monday night against the alumni team, Garcia saw a team struggling to finish the deal. Lehman lost 3-0 to the alumni squad, which scored goals in the 34th, 37th and 59th minute. The Lady Lobos attempted 11 shots, including eight on goal, but could not convert the opportunities into points. "We need to finish," Garcia said. "We missed about six key opportu- nities that we could have scored in. We need to finish." For all intents and purposes, Garcia said the alumni game is more of a"celebratory practice" than a game.

Although the Lady Chaparrals actually outscored Hays in the second half, the hole they had dug themselves proved too deep. "I think our older girls in the second half stepped up and gave us some confidence and our younger kids followed," said Hensle. "We'll be fine, our kids will keep working hard." Although he said he was very proud of how his starters played, Preuss made a special point after the game congratulating the play of his bench tonight. "I've been challenging my bench players all year long," Preuss said. "I told them I needed them tonight and I had multiple girls come in and give me some good minutes tonight that we really needed." Preuss also was quick to admit that his team came out fiat for the second half, and "always comes out fiat." "We're gorma start nmning during the last minute of halftime," said Preuss. "We always come out of the locker room and stand around and we're fiat, and we can't do that against these district op= ponents so we're running during halftime now." The final score was 58-39. The Lady Rebels are on the road for their next district matchup against their rivals the Lady Lobos of Lehman. Tipoffis set for 7 p.m. in Lobo Gym.
