Taos splits recent outings

The Taos Tigers split their two most recent district outings, losing at home to Pojoaque Valley and defeating Moriarty 48-41 on the road.

The loss to the Elks on Wednesday (Feb. 12), in which they lost 47-45, was the Tigers' first in District 2-4A action. Taos' win on the road against Moriarty was the team's second against the Pintos this season.

With the regular season coming to a close, the final two games are of utmost importance. As of press time on Thursday (Feb. 21), the Tigers are tied with Española Valley for the district lead, though Taos does have a win at home against them.

Taos girls basketball drop two district games

The Taos Lady Tigers girls basketball team dropped their two most recent outings.

The first loss on Thursday (Feb. 13) came at the hands of Pojoaque Valley on the road, 68-41.

The Lady Tigers also dropped their Saturday (Feb. 15) game at home against Moriarty, 52-41. While the Lady Tigers found themselves down by just two points after the first quarter, they were held to just six points in the following frame.

Taos put up 18 points in the fourth quarter, though it wasn't enough to mount a comeback.

Taos is 8-16 overall and just 1-5 in District 2-4A. The Lady Tigers have just two games remaining in the regular season. Their final game is on Friday (Feb. 21) at home against Española Valley.

Questa girls topple district rival Mesa Vista

On Saturday (Feb. 15), the Questa Lady Cats picked up an important District 5-2A victory when they defeated Mesa Vista 44-39 on the road.

The win moved the Lady Cats to 12-9 overall and 4-3 in district play. The win comes on the heels of two straight losses to the likes of Escalante and Peñasco, the two top teams in the district.

With the season coming to a close, the Lady Cats now have just three games remaining. Even if they do lose out, they will still have finished the regular season with a winning record - something they haven't done in more than a decade.

There's a good chance they can make the state tournament, too. After the season concludes, they can earn a birth through winning the district tournament or getting an at-large birth.
