WARY EYES Thatcher Little (33) looks for an opening in the Elsie Allen defense during the Jan. 17 game in Healdsburg. The Lobos defeated the Greyhounds, 45-34.

Healdsburg’s boys basketball team remains without a win in league play this year, 0-4, and only three wins on the season against 15 losses.

Their latest game saw them fall to the powerful Ukiah Lobos, who dominate the North Bay Redwood league with their 4-0 record (17-5 on the year). The final score of 80-14 suggests a match best played out of town, as this one was last Friday, Jan. 19.

Two days earlier the Greyhounds showed signs of improvement, mounting some strong drives but falling 45-34 at home. Thatcher Little continues to lead team scoring, with strong contributions from James Parmeter and Ethan Overdorf.

But the clock is ticking on the 2023-24 season, with just a handful of games remaining. Next up is a Jan. 27 meeting at St. Vincent de Paul (19-2 overall, 2-2 in the league), followed by a home rematch against Rancho Cotate (9-11, 3-1) on Tuesday, Jan. 30, at 7:30pm.

Rio Lindo Boys

While the Rio Lindo girls team is undefeated in their league play, the boys team is not doing as well, 6-7 overall, 1-4 in the league. They also play Summerfield Waldorf on Jan. 31, with a 5:30pm tipoff. The school is located at 3200 Rio Lindo Ave., just over two miles up Bailache Road.
