H.S. Basketball: Newton too much for Elks in bi-district matchup


LUFKIN — Tatum 55, WESTWOOD 38 (Fri.)

A rough stretch in the middle quarters did in the Westwood girls’ basketball team in the area round Friday.

The Lady Panthers only trailed No. 18 Tatum by three heading into the second quarter, but from there until the fourth quarter the Lady Eagles outscored Westwood 34-14, effectively putting things away.

Natali Muniz led Westwood with 13 points, while adding six rebounds. Mi’Kayla Benson added 10 points and nine rebounds, while Shavon Nauls, Nekeisha Hall and Jemelia Thomas each finished with four points.

Marialle Boles finished with a team-high 10 rebounds.

Westwood finishes the season 18-14, while Tatum moves on to face Crockett in the regional quarterfinals.
