Hoops: District 1-5A Preview
DISTRICT 1-5A- Last season, was sort of a setback for this District after all three teams that went to the State Tournament lost in the First Round. The Regular Season District Champion Cibola Cougars went in as the #4-seed in the tournament before being upset in the First Round by the #13-seeded Manzano Monarchs.
Far fall for this District as just in 2011 it seen "new" school Cleveland High School reach the 2011 Final Four for the schools first appearance in only a short 4-year history. This year it will be Volcano Vista High School eyeing the District-5A Regular Season title and a trip to it's first 5A Final Four. Only entering it's third 5A season the Hawks welcome back Senior Sam Haywood (No. 5 NMPreps.com Top 100 Player Rankings). Haywood who as a freshman lead the Hawks to the 2009 4A Final Four is looking to finish what he start four years ago.
A team that could be searching for an identity is the returning District Champions Cibola Cougars who lose some talented players from last season. Look for big man Ross Buchman (No. 13 NMPreps.com Top 100 Player Rankings) to dominate the paint and lead the Cougars in 2012-2013.
