The “Iron 5” Roadrunners kicked off their first home game this season yesterday. We opened the tip off with a back and forth battle, leading the first quarter 5–3. We finally found our footing in the 2nd quarter and exploded with a 12 point quarter. However, during the second half we took our foot off the gas and let ATC come back into the game, which was also a chippy one.

In the end, we outlasted ATC to win the game 31 to 23. Kudos to all five of our girls for playing hard and not giving up. Their perseverance throughout the whole game was key to their success. The two guards duo, sophomore Lindsay Hand and freshman Victoria Baca led the team with 10 points each, and sophomore Mya Malone pulled down 14 big rebounds along with six points. We, also want to recognize senior Shereena Bob and sophomore Andrea Leyba, for their performances and presence on the court. They made a big impact on the game, even though it may not show on the stats sheet. (Contributed by Head Coach Roderick Stickley)

Last night was our first game for the 2017-2018 season. Before the game, the Roadrunners were ready to play, passion showing in their eyes. It was a great feeling to win a game before our Thanksgiving break. Our motto for this basketball season is “FIST” which stands for F= Faith, I= Integrity, S= Strength and T= Trust. The team displayed FIST before, during, and after the basketball game. Senior Jonathan Garcia had 23 points. Eighth grader Bruce Brewer Jr. had 11 points, eight assists, and five steals.

I do not know when the last time was that both boys and girls won their first games of the season. (Contributed by Head Coach Letty Perez)
