Sports: Week in Review

SANTA FE, N.M. — A look back at the top sports stories in northern New Mexico


COACH DEPARTURE: Just weeks before the start of the season, Pojoaque Valley football coach Jorge Oropeza unexpectedly left to take a job with the Dallas Independent School District, said Pojoaque Valley Public School superintendent Melville Morgan. The district has been advertising for the job for about a week “and we have a number of applicants,” said Morgan, adding he hopes to name a replacement soon. Assistant coach Patrick Marez has been the interim coach and has been running the recent summer workouts.
