District 2-4A previews: Pojoaque Valley

-A A +A
By Phil Scherer

Leading up to the new school year, the Los Alamos Monitor will be previewing the teams in Los Alamos High School’s new district 2-4A. The new district will provide new rivalries, renew old rivalries and continue existing rivalries. The new matchups should provide fun competition throughout the school year.

One of Los Alamos High School’s new district opponents this year will be the school closest to LAHS: Pojoaque Valley High School. This offers a chance for the two neighboring schools to develop a deeper rivalry than has existed in recent years when the schools were playing periodic non-district games. 

This year, the biggest rivalry may come from girls’ basketball, which was Pojoaque Valley’s top sport last school year. The team went 23-6 last year, including a convincing 60-27 win over LAHS during the early part of the season. 

The team appears like it will be strong again this season, losing only three players to graduation in May. Interestingly, the Elkettes lost in the Class 4A semifinals to Moriarty in the state tournament last year, and now the two teams find themselves in the same district heading into this fall.
