North Sports: Week in Review

VACANCIES TO BE FILLED: With Santa Fe Indian School essentially conducting its entire school year remotely, and athletes free to join teams in the area that they live, filling Braves coaching vacancies has not been a priority. With the state opening up, however, SFIS needs a head football coach and girls basketball assistants.

SIGNED: Alicia Quintana of Pojoaque Valley has signed to run track for the University of New Mexico. A sprinter, Quintana took third in the 400-meter dash in the 2019 Class 4A state meet as a sophomore – her junior season was wiped out by the virus – and took fourth in the 100 and 200.

ALSO SIGNED: Northern New Mexico College scooped up a couple of local basketball players. Capital’s Ethena Silva, a 6-foot guard/forward, is averaging 10.8 points and 8.5 rebounds in helping the Jaguars go 4-6 on the season. And Española Valley 5-6 guard Destiny Valdez is scoring 8.1 points, with 1.8 assists in leading the Sundevils to an 11-1 mark and a state tournament berth.


ESPAÑOLA VALLEY 80, POJOAQUE VALLEY 21: The host Elkettes (3-8, 1-6 District 2-4A) just didn’t have enough firepower to prevent the determined march to the state tournament by the Sundevils (11-1, 8-0), who had three players in double figures led by Miranda Salazar’s 12.

MORIARTY 57, LOS ALAMOS 31: The visiting Hilltoppers (0-11, 0-7 District 2-4A) fell behind 19-5 in the first quarter and could not make up any ground the rest of the way in losing to the Pintos.

PECOS 55, TEXICO 21: Trinity Herrera scored 17 points and Mistidawn Roybal added 15 against visiting Texico to help the Panthers (10-0, 4-0 District 6-2A) creep closer to a district championship.

MENAUL 41, MONTE DEL SOL 18: Daisy Ortiz scored nine for the host Dragons (2-8) in a loss to the Panthers.
