District 2-4A Boys Basketball Outlook

-A A +A

Bernalillo Spartans

Record: 5-11

The one team Los Alamos has defeated this season — that game doesn’t count in the 2-4A standings, however — the Spartans got off to a slow start but have shows signs of getting things together, having won four of their last six, including topping Albuquerque Academy.

Capital Jaguars

Record: 4-11

Capital has had some internal strife in recent seasons and reports coming out of Jaguar country suggest that hasn’t been settled even with veteran coach Ben Gomez returning to the helm. The Jaguars are senior-heavy but don’t have much height down low outside of 6-foot-3 post Jordan Burks.

Española Valley Sundevils

Record: 8-8

While it appears at first glance the Sundevils are heading in the wrong direction as the 2-4A season approaches, having lost six straight, those losses have been against very good competition. Still the team to beat at this point, the Sundevils are the most athletic team in the district.

Los Alamos Hilltoppers

Record: 1-16

The Hilltoppers knew it was going to be rough going this year, but were hoping it wouldn’t be quite this rough. Nevertheless, the Hilltoppers can turn their fortunes around in a hurry, having two winnable games against Bernalillo and Santa Fe right out of the gate.

Santa Fe Demons

Record: 2-14

Very little has gone right for the Demons, even with some solid returners on the roster. The offense has been spotty at best and the defense non-existent at times. Worse, they don’t have much time to right the ship before moving up a classification next year.
