Published Monday, January 4th, 2021

HobbsDailyReport.com encourages head coaches or their representatives to report live scores as soon as possible after events are completed. In basketball, report traditional box scores with score by quarters and individual scoring that adds up to team scoring totals (first and last names of all double figure scorers). In volleyball, e-mail each of the match scores and stat leaders with first and last names and any highlights. In cross country, send top 10 finishers with first and last name and which school they run for and final team scores. We’ll publish results/roundups  with items we receive, indicating who provided the information, and we’d be glad to publish any photos (with IDs) and credit the person who shot the photo. Regular reporting will enable us to provide timely basketball and volleyball standings.



The high school basketball season opens Tuesday night with two girls’ programs already postponing games because of having to quarantine because of COVID-19.

In the South Fork 2A, Lincolnton’s girls are under quarantine and playing no games through Jan. 12 while the Northwestern Foothills 2A’s West Caldwell won’t play before Jan. 14.

Lincolnton won’t play any girls games on Tuesday at Newton-Conover but there will be junior varsity (6 p.m.) and varsity boys’ games played in Newton.

The Wolves have also postponed girls’ games on Friday at home against East Lincoln with boys’ games on as scheduled (6 p.m. JV start).

West Caldwell is dealing with COVID in both its volleyball and girls’ basketball programs.

The Warriors won’t play Wednesday at Fred T. Foard or Friday at home against Patton. Boys’ games at those two sites will be played (JVs at 5 p.m. at Foard; game start times against Patton to be determined).

The South Fork 2A schedule is highlighted by the return to coaching of Rob Bliss. He will lead Bandys against Maiden at Maiden, where he was formerly principal (also principal at South Caldwell, and a star athlete and later head boys’ coach at East Burke and later at Fred T. Foard).

The South Fork 2A, Northwestern Foothills 2A and Northwestern 3A-4A have released their protocols, admission costs and other instructions for fans hoping to attend games.
