They were 9-9 for the season and eventually getting upset by Capitan in the second round of the district tournament. Coaches Nacona Grijalva and Armand0 Ro- sales are excited about the upcoming season be- cause they have all their starters returning and a team with a world of experience under their belt.

District will be tough again this year with Tutarosa favored to win district and will be highly ranked in state this year. According to coach Rosales and Grijalva. this is the best team they have put on the court since 2008. "The sk3 is the limit for thisteam: they have worked extremely hard." said Rosales. "We plan and ex- pect to be in Albuquerque in November," he added. This team has the talent and potential to go all the way. "If they keep working hard like they have been and we put all the final pieces together, I have a hard time believing that we won't be one of the last teams standing," exclaimed Rosales.
