CITY TOURNEY: Not surprisingly, local amateur Marty Sanchez turned in a strong performance on the links that bear his name, winning the Santa Fe City Golf Championship in play at the Santa Fe Country Club and the Marty Sanchez Links de Santa Fe.

Sanchez fired a 134 over two days of play to win the championship flight. Paul Ortiz shot a 151 to win the Businessman’s first flight and Jesus Corrales came in with a 137 in medal play for the Businessman’s second flight.

Chanet Fiorina finished with a 144 gross to win the Ladies’ flight and Georgie Hutton took the net competition. John Mikkelsen shot a 143 in medal play, gross no handicap to win the Senior flight and Jack Hiatt finished with a 131 medal play net only to win the Super Senior flight. In all, 62 local golfers competed in the tournament.


SUPERIOR RATING: The West Las Vegas High School Cheer Team took home a Superior rating in a two-day UCA Home Camp, with Justice Atkins, Grace Gallegos, Maria Ortiz and Krysten Cavazos earning All-American honors.
