Taos County All-Stars: Matt Lopez

Matthew Lopez, Peñasco High School - Senior Arcenio J. Trujillo

Under the direction of first-year coach, Brandon Gurule, the Peñasco Panthers underwent a rebuilding year. Matthew Lopez did his part to be a leader on the court for a young squad tasked with turning a program around and squeezing out wins along the way. Named to the all-district team, he led all scorers in 2017-18. Lopez also found a calling in a specific track and field event as a javelin hurler. He won the event at the district meet in Questa April 28 and went on to place third with his personal best throw of 142 feet, 8 inches at the state meet May 5.
