NMSD 62

In the district tournament opener for both teams, NMSD came out victorious
at the Santa Fe Indian School’s gymnasium. The Boys led each quarter
although Walatowa
fought hard to upset our boys. The game wasn’t pretty but we were able to
muster just enough to come out ahead in our third head to head match of
the season. The
Roadrunners were led by Luis Villalobos 27 points and 19 rebounds; Bruce
Brewer, Junior’s 27 points, 7 assists and 4 steals. Kieran Vollmar had 8
points and 5
rebounds. The boys will play Jemez Valley for the fourth time this season
at their home gym Friday night at 6pm.

The record is now 17-7

So very disappointing that NEAC has snubbed Noah Valencia,
the best player in tbe conference, by placing him on the
second team instead of the first team that he richly
deserves.

It was an off-season for the Gallaudet men’s basketball
team – he carried the team on his shoulders, leading
his teammates to five wins, including a big upset
over the conference’s #1 team.
