Steers basketball

Early on in the season it’s looking as though the Magdalena Steers are allergic to losing. At 7-0 the boys traveled to Mescalero Apache for its annual tournament and the Steers took down the Jar Panthers 64-37, the Fort Sumner Foxes 57-36, and finished things off with a championship win against the hometown Chiefs 65-33. Magdalena is in the drivers seat early as the only undefeated team in District 6 2A standings and currently ranked third in the state. The hot start is much needed as they will not see its home floor until January 25 as they are on a 10 game road stretch heading into 2020.
