We all wish high school basketball fans had had the opportunity to be in The Pit for state tournament action March 12-14, but the novel coronavirus precautions precluded that.
Nonetheless, it was a memorable season, and here are the city’s athletes gaining All-District recognition.
Tre Watson was named the District 1-5A Defensive Player of the Year and was also named to the All-District first team, along with his Cleveland High teammates Nate Hasberry, Aidan Moreno and Evan Gonzales.
The Storm’s Trey Ortega and Dorian Lewis received honorable mention.
Rio Rancho’s Isaiah Chavez, Junior Hodnett and Christian Lucero were All-District first-teamers, with Vance Rudolph earning honorable mention.
Atrisco Heritage Academy standout Joziah Ramos was the Player of the Year.
