Our local cross-country teams have been trekking "across country" all fall season, making their way to their district championship meets.
The Lady Steers backed off their game some on Oct. 31 against the To'hajiilee Warriors, still pulling off a 3 – 0 win, advancing their winning streak to six and an 18-2 record, 12-0 in their district. Non-starters and some junior varsity teammates were rotated in during the second and third game, causing a tighter game for the second set. This play time will be valuable experience for less experience players next year, when Magdalena loses six graduating seniors, four of whom starters.
The Lady Warriors came out pumped up for their volleyball match against the Hot Springs Tigers on Tuesday night – maybe a little too pumped up. They scraped out a 3-1 win over the Tigers, and will head to Silver City on Saturday for the district championship game.
The Lady Warriors nailed the win on Tuesday night, playing with a new passion against the Hot Springs Tigers in their last regular season home performance of the year. The Lady Warriors secured home advantage for their first district game next Thursday, also against the Tigers, with a 3-0 win, in three tightly played sets. Seniors Tamera Chavez, Jaedyn Gutierrez, Maria Alderete, Ashley Pyke and Natalie Paz had extra reason to play from the heart.

The Magdalena Steers went into their game against Jal with a 4-1 record. The Steers were holding their own against the 3-3 Panthers, until halftime. The score was 19 – 13 Jal Panthers starting the third quarter. The Steers seemed to lose steam on defense and offense, scoring no more points and increasing their turnovers, as the Panthers play was rough and a little dirty. The Steers had multiple attempts at touchdowns, but all were cut short by the Panther's defense and the ball was intercepted for a Jal touchdown once.
The Alamo Navajo Cougars pulled out a 3 – 0 win against the Reserve Mountaineers on October 4 in Alamo. The game was unruly with multiple errors and saves on both sides of the net. The Cougars strength seems to be their ability to recover from errors, and they aren't afraid to dig and agressively attack the ball. The Mountaineers are more, well, reserved.
