Regional HS recap: March 11-17

Rams advance to state semis; Winter weather mars spring sports

The Cimarron Rams boys basketball team made a strong showing last week in the New Mexico Class A state basketball championship games. Otherwise, what should have been the opening of the spring high school sports season across the region was largely scrubbed due to a storm system whose snow totals were measured in feet, not mere inches.

Cimarron
The 23-7 Cimarron Rams, ranked sixth in the Division A rankings, faced off against the fourth ranked, 25-3 Des Moines Demons on March 13 in the second round of the New Mexico 2024 Nusenda Credit Union Boys Basketball State Championships for Class A. In an upset, the Rams took down the Demons and marched forward into the semifinal rounds of the championships.
In the semifinals, Cimarron squared off against the second seed 22-5 Fort Sumner/House squad on March 14. It was a nailbiter, but Fort Sumner/House was able to squeak past Cimarron by a narrow 66-63 margin.
