William Thompson:Quay County Sun

Four Rattler players were chosen by coaches from other district teams for honors related to the Class AA District 6 All-District Team.
Tucumcari High School basketball players Matt Braziel and Nemi Salvador were recently named to the Class AA District 6 All-District team. Robert Munoz and Nathan McDonald were given honorable-mention status.
Rattler Coach John Span said Braziel was his team’s leading scorer and a leader on the floor as well. As for Salvador, Span said he was also a leader on the floor, handling the ball on most trips down the court.
Braziel, Salvador and Munoz are all seniors. Munoz was singled out by Span for his outside and inside shooting. McDonald will return next season and Span expects him to continue to rebound well and make plays inside.
