High School
NMPreps.com's 2014 Outlook
Graduate just two seniors from the 2013 season when they went 20-1. Return a strong group led by incoming seniors like Alex Gonzales, Jo Jo Donahue, Miranda Sanchez, and outside hitter Amanda Carrol. Look for this group to make a serious run again in 2014.
They caught fire late in the year winning their last five games in a row. This year Head Coach Sheir Gibson and the Rockets return Junior Megan Meeks and Courtney Villapando. Graduate just three seniors from last year's state championship team.
Rio Rancho
Led by one of the top coaches in New Mexico Toby Manzanares, the Rams went 18-7 last year and return this year loaded with a strong senior group. Erika Barbour had an amazing 195 kills last year, Oliva Adams had 132 kills, and Tyra Watts had 120 kills.
La Cueva
Though they graduate seniors like Chole Crappell and Rachel Panek, the Bears should have enough emerging talent to stay among the top teams in 6A this ear. Watch for Shahana Maji and Abigal Stomp to step up.
Graduate Kristin Woody who had 431 kills along with a host of other big time impact players. Daniella Martinez and Michah Espinosa have some big shoes to step into. The Elkettes are 39-9 over the last two seasons.
Sleeper team to watch out for. The Cougars were 5-1 in district last year under Head Coach Sang-Yong Yun and return some very good talent into the 2014 season including Tatyanna Battle who had 251 kills and 20 blocks last year as a junior. Also return Hannah Tobaissen who had 19 blocks.
Coming off a 20-4 season, the Bulldogs graduate six seniors which will be tough to replace. They went 3-3 in district, but outside of the district they had some major success. Watch for Brooke Johnson and Kayla Ledezma.
Cleveland is another program that has a big time Head Coach (Brian Ainsworth) leading the program and though they were just .500 last year they return some good talent into 2014. Watch for Larimar Rodriguez and Briana Ainsworth. Expect a much improved year.
Piedra Vista
The Panthers reached the 2013 state title game losing 3-1 to Goddard. Ron Becker and Co. were an outsanding 21-3, but do lose some big time talent like Samantha Sofka and Nianna Alcon. Do return Autumn Begay along with Brittney Hutchison, two which should be among the better players in the entire district.
The Panthers were 16-7 last year and 6-2 in district play under Priscilla Jaramillo. This year's roster will be headlines by some outsanding young ladies, maybe this is the sleeper team of 2014. Briana Bustillos had 205 kills as just a sophomore last year. Karina Erreguin had 217 kills last year as a junior and Rosy Avila had 126 kills last year. Really like this group.
Los Lunas
The Tigers look like a 5A team ready to make a run in 2014. They graduate just two seniors from last year's team which went 17-7. Look for Jordan Holland to pick up the void left by Katie Inman who had an incredible 511 kills amd 49 blocks. Holland had 36 blocks last year as a just a sophomore.
The Rams reached the Class 3A semifinals last year losing to Pojoaque and will have to replace 8 seniors that graduated. Portales does return incoming junior Seraya Cox and Kambrey Blakey who was one of the top basketball players this past state tournament.
Las Cruces
Las Cruces was upset in the quarterfinals losing to Cibola 3-0 after running the show in District 3-5A going 7-1. This year, Las Cruces will have to replace 6 seniors who graduated. Watch for setter Alyssa Abney and for Middle Hitter Gabby Serecerez to step up.
St. Pius X
The Sartans were 13-8 and should be able to make a deep run in Class 5A this year with Julia Landavazo and Brianna Barkocy back for their senior year. Landavazo had 227 kills and Barkocy had 118. That is some major power returning into this year.
Hope Christian was 19-3 last year, but was upset by rival Sandia Prep 3-1 in the quarterfinals. This year the Huskies return some good talent. Watch for Dominique Fava who had 142 kills as a junior. Abby Williams had a monster sophomore year recording 62 blocks. Macy sutton is another outside hitter to keep tabs on.
Academy was 7-0 in district play and likely feels they should of won the whole thing, losing to Goddard the eventual champs 3-2 in the semifinals. The Chargers graduate three seniors, but return standout Alina Vanecek who had 317 kills as just a sophomore last year. Don't sleep on Academy, they have looked great over the summer time.
Went 8-0 in district last year and took second in Class 2A losing to Hatch Valley in the finals 3-1. The Bobcats graduate just two seniors and return some serious talent with Carly Beddingfield and Dani Rae Wascher coming back. Together they had a combined 469 kills. Wascher also had 39 solo blocks.
Return nearly everyone to the 2014 season which is good news considering they won 18 games and went 6-0 in the district. The Hawks, look like a program on the rise. Watch for Analisa Jaquez and Savannah Bush, two girls over 6-foot-0.
Elida won the Class B state title last year going 23-1 and defeating Carrizozo in the finals 3-2. The Tigers graduate 4 seniors. Watch for Kayla Summers and rising sophomore Taylor Epps in 2014.
Espanola went 15-8 overall last year and an impressive 8-1 in district. The Sundevils return Elana Salazar who had 275 kills last year and sophomore Ashlyn Trujillo who had 132 kills as just a sophomore.
Santa Fe
The Demons were 19-6 overall last year and though they return some talent into the 2014 season, remember Santa Fe jumps to Class 6A. Sabrina L. Cabbaage one of the top athletes in the Class of 2015 returns who had 194 kills as a junior as well as Kayla Herrera who had 211.
Santa Rosa
The Lions had an impressive 2013 season winning 21-1 and were a class 2A favorite entering the state tournament, before being upset by Bosque in the quarterfinals. They graduate Veronica Sanchez, look for Chandelle Sisneros and for Syndey Moncayo to becoming impact players this year.
Ft. Sumner
The Foxes won the 1A title last year defeating Tatum 3-1 in the finals. They ended the year riding a 7 game winning streak. Watch for Lisa Mcmath and co. to turn it up again in 2014.
They went 20-5 last year and won the 2A state finals beating Bosque 3-1. They graduate 6 seniors and jump from 2A to 3A this year. Will be interesting to see of the Bears can make another strong run, likely so.
The Tatum Coyotes check in at the No. 25 spot losing to Ft. Sumner 3-1 in the 1A finals. The graduate three, return Sydney Colewell and Kristy Cano.
