Their first game was against the Hot Spring Tigers. After starting out a little fiat, the boys took a quick lead against their rival and they were tied are the end of the first quarter. The 2 "a quarter was a lot better. Our Full Court pressure and man to man defense was very good and Hot Springs couldn't handle the pressure. At half we were ahead by 12 points. At one time we were ahead by 25 points. Final score was Hatch 41, Hot Springs 27. The 2 "d game was against the host team Socorro. They were expecting us to come out with our full court pressure but we didn't. We came out with a half-court and really shut them down. At the half we were ahead 23-9. The fi- nal score was Hatch 43, Socorro 29. Top scorers for both games was Ricardo Villa, Lalo Alcala, Aaron Montes and Caleb Turner. Josh Turner didn't score much, but had an outstanding game control of the ball. Josh does'a good job of finding the open man. We finished the season with a record of 14-5 and at one time We won 10 games in a row. Coach Renteria would like to thank the parents in trusting him with their boys. They were in good hands with me. I also want to thank Mr. & Mrs. Turner for the orange juice and water they provided for the tournament. Also to the moms that made the burritos. A special thanks to Slim at Jim's Supermar- ket for supplying food for the boys. I would also like to thank the Administrators for their sup- port; and the most important people, the 7 'h grade boys for giv- ing me a chance with them. We learned, we had fun, and we en- joyed the season. Good luck next year. o o o
