New Mexico gets first and only youth wheelchair basketball team Courtesy submission New Mexico will now have its first and only competitive youth wheelchair basketball team, The Carrie Tingley Rollin' Lobos, thanks to wheelchair sup- port from the Carrie Tingley Hos- pital Foundation ("Foundation"). The Carrie Tingley Rollin' Lobos will come together for a photo opportunity at the Jewish Com- munity Center, where they some- times practice, on Tuesday, April 29 at 3:30 p.m. The Carrie Tingley Rollin' Lobos became a competitive team thanks to the help of Paralympic basketball champion and gold medal winner (2008 Bejing Olympics) Lorraine Gonzales and her husband David Gonzales, who won a college na- tional championship in 2006 and played competitive wheelchair basketball in Europe. The Gonzales' worked with the Foundation which donated more than $20,000 to the team - $15,000 of which went to pur- chase specialized wheelchairs. The wheelchairs are designed specifically for playing on a bas- ketball court and can travel at high speeds without tipping. The chairs are required by the Na- tional Wheelchair Basketball As- sociation (NWBA) in order to compete in tournaments. "For both David and I, play- ing competitive wheelchair bas- ketball for several years has given us the opportunity athletically and intellectually as well as al- lowed us to travel the country and the world," said Lorraine Gonzales. "Most importantly, it has provided us an avenue to higher education. There are cur- AID BY J.

"The Gonzales' bring a unique perspective to the Carrie Tingley Rollin' Lobos team that only someone with their experi- ences could offer - from their knowledge about playing in tournaments, to opening the .kids' eyes to available collegiate programs that offer scholar- ships," said Foundation Execu- tive Director, Jeff Hoehn. "Through the Foundation's Adaptive Sports Camp and other collaborative opportunities, Car- fie Tingley Hospital Foundation has always supported c[aildren with special needs, and we are happy to have been able to pro- vide these specialized chairs to get the ball rolling with New Mexico's only competitive youth wheelchair basketball team." The Foundfition anticipates that the team may become a "feeder" team to the collegiate level of play in the future. The co-ed 10 person team ranges in age from 10 to 19 years old. Thanks to the guid- ance and leadership of the Gonzales' and the Foundation, several team members such as 16-year-old Arturo Vargas are now looking into applying for scholarships at colleges and uni- versities that have wheelchair basketball teams. "I've been playing with most of our team for years, and it wasn't until the Gonzales' showed us the possibilities that I've seen a drastic improvement in our confidence as a team and as individuals; I never imagined we would get to the point where we could compete," said Vargas, who was diagnosed with spina bifida as a child. "We wouldn't have been able to compete if it were not for Carrie Tingley Hospital Foundation. They've been a big part of my, life as a child by helping with my medi- cal needs, and are a big part of my success now on the team." The Gonzales', along with Foundation Executive Director Jeff Hoehn, and members of the Carrie Tingley Rollin' Lobos team will be available for me- dia questions and photo oppor- tunities at 3:30 p.m. on April 29 at the Jewish Community Center located at 5520 Wyo- ming Blvd. NE in Albuquerque. The Carrie Tingley Hospi- tal Foundation is a non-profit organization that helps New Mexico children with special needs and their families reach their full potential. The organi- zation supports the University of New Mexico Carrie Tingley Hospital, but also funds services and programs that assist indi- vidual families and children.
