West Mesa Girls Basketball Team Honored

03/26/2019

The West Mesa Mustangs Girls Basketball team was recognized at the March 26 Bernalillo County Commission administrative meeting for its championship effort, exemplary teamwork, and outstanding play on the court as state champions of the 2019 Girls State Basketball Tournament.

The team won the state championship on March 16, 2019, at Dreamstyle Arena, the Pit, after defeating Hobbs High School in the championship game by a score of 63 to 51. That win brought the Mustangs record on the year to 28 wins and only 3 losses. We honor your tenacity, as those three loses all came to the same team, Piedra Vista, during the regular season and you avenged those losses by beating that same Piedra Vista team on your way to the title. The Mustangs players are: Monique Jackson, Alicia Varoz, Jeniffer Martinez, Maiah Rivas, Esperanza Varoz, Emily Burk, Cece Barela, Jazmin Cordova, Lupe Zarate, and Crystal Aspaas. The Mustangs are coached by Manny Otero and coaching staff Lee Barlow, Patrick Fuentes, Ashley Jiron, Richard Espinoza, Timothy Jackson, and team manager Sugey Veleta.

The Mustangs are nationally ranked in the top 100 high schools and have brought West Mesa its first state basketball championship since the school was built in 1967. These girls and their coach have now set a new bar for excellence at West Mesa High School.
