Questa Wildcats Boys' Basketball at a glance

Posted

Colors: Royal blue, white

Coach: Daniel Gallegos

2017 overall record: 2-24

District 5-2A record: 1-8

2017 District 5-2A teams: Peñasco Panthers, Escalante Lobos, Mesa Vista Trojans, Mora Rangers, Questa Wildcats.

2018 District 5-2A teams: Peñasco Panthers, Escalante Lobos, Mesa Vista Trojans, Mora Rangers, Questa Wildcats, Coronado Leopards.

(The only change in District 5 of Class AA with the redistricting is the addition of the Coronado Leopards.)

Questa Wildcats roster:

Miguel Romero, senior; Dominic Torres, senior; Derek Vialpando, senior; Josiah Griego, senior; Joshua Arguello, senior; Carlos Gonzales, junior; Eugine Jackson, sophomore; Gerald Cisneros, freshman; Tate Danis, freshman; Matthew Rael, freshman.

2018 Outlook:

It's set to be another rebuilding year for the Wildcats.

Daniel Gallegos is now the head coach of the Wildcats Boys Basketball team, the third new coach in as many years for the players senior enough to remember. Needless to say, one of the challenges facing the Questa team this year is for the players to adapt their style of play and practice yet again.

Coach Gallegos aspires to the district championship for his boys this year. Practices began Nov. 19, and already they were competing in the Taos Invitational Nov. 29 - Dec. 1. The Questa boys showed their ability to focus and cultivate positive attitudes when they came back from losing their first game Thursday night against Taos (Nov. 29) to win their second against Deming 44-43. It's a good indication for the coming season.
