New Mexico girls’ basketball

V Girls
NMSD – 28
Walatowa – 46

The NMSD Roadrunners had only 5 players suited up for the game. We came
out roaring with aggressive play in the first half being tied at 18
apiece. The first half was one of our best performances, if not the best.
The players truly stepped up in every aspect and played with a positive
attitude. With the fact that we only had 5 players and Walatowa was able
to sub with a full bench, they took advantage of it while we ran out of
gas. Walatowa ended the game with a 28 point second half to our 10 points.
Senior Antonia Martinez finishes her basketball career leading the team
with 9 points, 7 steals, 2 rebounds, and an assist. Freshman Victoria Baca
contributed with 8 points, 8 rebounds, and 2 steals. Sophomore Lindsay
Hand grabbed 12 rebounds, 7 points, 2 assists, a steal and a block.
Sophomore Mya Malone dominated the glass once again with 16 rebounds, 2
points, a steal and a block. 8th grader Sophia Martinez had a remarkable
game as she continued to improve with 7 rebounds, 2 p
oints and a steal. The team would like to thank the fans for all of their
support this season and the success that we have enjoyed.

Overall record 5-13
