Locals in Leagues

Tucumcari High School basketball coach John Span took around ten Tucumcari basketball players to a summer league tournament in Las Vegas yesterday. Fifteen teams are participating. Span said his team will play six games.

“This tournament should give us an idea of the capabilities of some of the players the high school team will face next season,” said Span.

This weekend’s games are being played at West Las Vegas High School.

Yesterday, Tucumcari played teams from Springer, Fort Sumner and Clayton. Today, Tucumcari will play Penasco at 8 a.m., Wagon Mound at 10 a.m. and Santa Rosa at 1 p.m.
