SANTA ANA PUEBLO — The blue bloods reigned supreme in the Class 4A girls quarterfinals Wednesday at the complex on the Santa Ana Pueblo.
No. 1 St. Pius, No. 2 Hope Christian and No. 3 Albuquerque Academy cruised, winning their games by a combined score of 21-0. Fourth-seeded Aztec was the only team with a little bit of drama, as it held off No. 5 Los Alamos by a 5-3 count in the other game of the day.
“I think it says that Academy, Pius and Hope are just a little bit kind of above right now in terms of the level of play,” said Chargers head coach Peter Glidden. “When it comes to these state games, if we’re able to get out early, it’s hard to keep up — a lot of firepower that all three of those teams have.”
