The Alamogordo boys finish 7th overall at the 5A State Championships in Albuquerque.

Congrats to Lady Tigers on bringing home back-to back blue trophies! This program was begun by Coach Marilyn Sepulveda and not since her time in leadership in the 80s has the program seen as much success as the last two years. Living in her legacy she would be proud of these young ladies and of the leadership shown by the present coaching staff under Jason Atkinson, as head coach. 

Yvonne Stinson is the high point scorer with 28.5 points!
