A couple of nice match-ups going on Saturday include the Deming/Alamogordo game, and Magdalena/Estancia contest.
The improving Alamogordo Tigers against the scrappy Deming ‘Cats. Alamogordo head coach Warren Thomas reported to me earlier this season his focus in building the program was finding a consistency and creating an “assembly line” of excellent players. Looks like it’s starting to work.
Magdalena is getting a taste of their new 2A competition when they face the Lady Bears of Estancia. The the Lady Steers obviously need some time to get acclimated to their move into 2A, but I’m sure they won’t make easy for Estancia. I’ve always enjoyed watching these two teams play; it should be a good battle.

Rio Rancho Bash Continues
Pool play continues Saturday, starting at 8:00 AM thru 11:45 AM. The bracket play commences at 1:00 PM at Rio Rancho (Gold) and Cleveland (Silver). The format is best 3/5 games, 5th set to 15.
As of late Friday night, the only results reported were:
- Cleveland split with Gadsden, drops two to Rio Rancho 25-23, 25-23
- Artesia beats Moriarty 25-18, 25-21, and defeats St. Pius 25-18, 25-22
- Gadsden splits with Cleveland 25-21, 21-25, splits with St. Pius and defeats Rio Rancho, Pojoaque and Moriarty, finishing the day 8-2, and in first place.
Somewhat of an upset in No 3. Artesia’s defeat of No. 1 St. Pius (Class 4A). Also of note is Gadsden’s sweep of Rio Rancho, but loss of a set to Cleveland.
