Last Saturday, Larson Gym was packed and LOUD! It was great to see NMSD alumni, family, parents, former staff, Board of Regents members, and NMSD staff at the game. They really showed their pride in red and white. Congratulations to our boys for bringing home the 2018 Boys Basketball 1A District Championship trophy, which we have not been able to achieve since 1978.

Last Sunday evening at 7:00 p.m., our boys, Leo, and I watched the live videostream from We are seeded #5 and we will play Evangel Christian Academy (#12) this coming Saturday at 5:00 p.m. here on campus. (Contributed by Head Coach Letty Perez)

new-mexicoWalatowa Charter 46 New Mexico 28 - District 1A Semifinals

The New Mexico Roadrunners had only five players suited up for the game. We came out roaring with aggressive play in the first half being tied at 18-apiece. The first half was one of our best performances, if not the best. The players truly stepped up in every aspect and played with a positive attitude. With the fact that we only had five players and Walatowa was able to sub with a full bench, they took advantage of it while we ran out of gas. Walatowa ended the game with a 28 point second half to our 10 points.

The team would like to thank the fans for all of their support this season and the success that we have enjoyed. (Contributed by Head Coach Roderick Stickley)

fremontFremont 59 Ferndale 29 - NCS Division 6 Quarterfinals

The first five minutes was tense as the Wildcats and the Eagles were sizing each other up. CSD finally got into the flow and scored on consecutive possessions to go up 8-0 before their coach called timeout with 3:15 remaining in the first quarter.

After that timeout, we went on a 8-3 run to finish the quarter and a 12-0 run between their 3rd and 5th point to make it 26-5 in the second quarter. Our defense continued to contest every shot and we managed to hold them to only two baskets and a free throw in the first half which was key to having a 29-point lead at halftime.

In the second half, Ferndale finally adjusted to our defense and managed to score on us as it was 25-24 in the second half. Our offense and unselfish passing remained consistent to keep on pace with them until the end of the game on the way to a 30-point victory over a tough opponent. In the fourth quarter, we squeezed the clock and punched our ticket to the Final Four.

CSD is now 24-6 on a 14-game winning streak.

We advanced to the CIF NCS Division VI Semifinals and will play #2 Laytonville at their gym on Wednesday, February 28.

The Four NCS Finalists will receive an Automatic Qualifier for the CIF Nor-Cal Div VI State Tournament, so no matter what happens from now on, we will play in the CIF Nor-Cal State Playoffs on March 7 to 13.


Overall, CSD had 59 points on 37% shooting, 29 rebounds, 12 assists, 32 steals, and four blocks. (Contributed by Head Coach Joshua Weinstock)

We will play the winner of Brentwood (our district, 2nd place finisher) vs. Lutheran North (Houston) in Waco at University High School this Friday, March 2nd at 11:00 a.m.

Athletics provide a sense of community at Idaho School for the Deaf and the Blind

By Victor Flores

idahoGOODING — Maizy Wilcox is usually too focused on the game to acknowledge the scoreboard. So was the case on Dec. 11, when the Idaho School for the Deaf and the Blind girls basketball team played at Carey.

Wilcox, a freshman point guard, knew the game was close, but she didn’t realize where her team stood until after the final buzzer. She looked at the scoreboard and saw a one-point win in favor of the Raptors.
