Three players of the Socorro Warrior basketball team were selected to the 3A all-district tournament team, and one player was designated as honorable mention.

Seniors Matthew Jojola and Zeb Esquivel, along with sophomore Sean Moore, were nominated to the first all-district team.

In addition, junior Gibo Padilla was named honorable mention.

“I am so proud of these young men and all their accomplishments,” said Coach Lawrence Baca.

Mathew Jojola has also been selected to the North/South, while Zeb Esquivel was selected as an alternate. Jojola will be playing for the South and will be coached by Silver City’s head coach Brandon Siqueiros.

Coach Baca said that while he was not sure of Jojola’s plans, he is a “strong, versatile and talented player that can definitely play at the next level.”
