Briefs: Amateur golf, Gladiators football, youth soccer

EL PASO — Aidan Thomas, the former St. Pius standout who will be a junior at New Mexico State, shot a 10-under par-62, bogey-free round Friday and has a two-shot leading after the first of three rounds in the New Mexico-West Texas Men’s Amateur Championship at Painted Dunes Desert Golf Course.

Thomas collected eight birdies, including six on the back nine, and eagled the par-5 No. 3 hole.

Javi Delgadillo, an El Paso Eastwood High product and an incoming freshman at NMSU, shot 8-under and is second.

Gustavo Morantes, an assistant coach for the University of New Mexico men’s golf team, shot 5-under to tie with two others, including Jackson Norwich, an El Paso native who will be a sophomore at Arizona, and Simon Miller, who won the Albuquerque City Men’s Championship in 2019.

Morantes recently regained his amateur status.
