V Girls
NMSD – 12
Cimarron – 49

Our first game of 2018 was a long trip to Cimarron. The day before, we had
a very productive practice where players were very aggressive which made
both coaches very eager for the game the next day. Unfortunately, we
seemed to have left our competitive fire at home. We finished the first
half scoring only 2 points to Cimarron’s 21. We finally came out with
better passion with a 9 point quarter, but Cimarron continued their hot
shooting performance with a 20 point quarter. We finished the game with a
12 point performance. As coaches, we were very disappointed in the team’s
effort, however, this is a learning experience that the players will not
want to repeat again. Our next game will be on January 17th with Vaughn on
our home court.

Coaches Stickley and Velasquez

V Boys
NMSD 40
Cimarron 69

Last night, our Roadrunners were leading all the way until the last 3
minutes of the 3rd quarter, when Junior Deven Thompson had foul trouble. 
We did not do our job for the rest of the game.    Deven Thompson made 14
points and Senior Jonathan Garcia scored 12 points.

Overall record 7-3
Next game: Tuesday, January 16th  NMSD vs ECA @ 6:30 @ ECA

court
by beating the Lady Tornado 45-22. In the win, Yasmean Evans had 23
points,
7 rebounds, and 7 steals. Gia DiGiacomo contributed 14 points and 6 steals
to the win. All the girls had time on the court and played a great

and blew the lead

St Mary’s girls basketball

The lady Bisons traveled to RSD yesterday for their second game of the
season. Though they played well together, they couldn’t seem to keep up
with the lady wildcats. It was an aggressive game on both sides which led
to some foul trouble and injuries late in the game. The girls pulled
through in the end but couldn’t make it a win. Kioney Alvira-Juardo lead
the team earning a double double with 17 points and 16 rebounds. Kearah
Kelly also made her first shot of the season adding two points to our
total. After a nice break where we will try to regroup and work on some
weak points we will be ready to take on Central Baptist again. Hopefully
we will have better luck on their court.

Game: SMSD vs RSD 21:43

Kevin Hall, the tour’s first deaf golfer, is not giving up on his chase

part of web story

Hall has spent 14 years chasing it: membership on the PGA Tour. He’s
enjoyed a handful of starts on tour during his career, but has mostly
toiled in the sport’s minors. Not the Web.com, Latinoamérica or Mackenzie
circuits, mind you, where decent money can be had. Hall has ventured in
the wilderness, those provincial tours where you carry your own bag and
are chased off the course by the men’s 45-and-older Thursday beer league.
It’s not a glamorous life, one that chews and spits out the most skilled
of players. That’s includes Hall, who once captured the Big Ten
Championship by 11 shots at Ohio State.
