North Sports: Week in Review

HIT BY INJURIES: For a change, it wasn’t the virus altering a scheduled game. This time, it was a rash of injuries that left the Santa Fe Indian School football team short of enough players to field a squad for its season finale against West Las Vegas, giving the school no choice but to forfeit. The Braves finished the season 5-5, 0-4 in District 2-3A.
