High flying Trojans down Rio Rancho

The Lady Trojans opened the first day of the Holiday Hoop-La with a convincing win over Rio Rancho, 56-37.

Mayfield post, Tiffani Lara, had a break-out game, scoring 20 points against a tenacious defense. The win advanced the Lady Trojans to day-two battle with district rival, Oñate.

Resurgent ‘Dawgs almost upset Rio Rancho

The Rio Rancho Lady Rams made the four hour drive to Las Cruces on October 24 to face the Lady Bulldawgs. The ‘Dawgs came alive in the third set, almost pulled off the upset, but ultimately fell 21-25, 17-25, 25-19, 25-22, 14-16.

Since I’m based in Las Cruces, I really enjoy seeing different teams from outside the area, and perennial powerhouse Rio Rancho is no exception. This is the third time I’ve seen them this season, and they keep improving each time. Head coach Toby Manzanares is a first-rate coach and class act, and always takes the time to talk to me.
