Academy of Technology and The Classics’ girls basketball team is away to a 2-0 start

By Arnie Leshin 
The season has just begun, but Academy of Technology and The Classics girls  head coach basketball Ron Drake has his Phoenix off to a stellar start.
The recent 52-17 romp at former district rival Espanola McCurdy was the second straight after opening on the road with a 49-29 rout over Mora.
Next stop is at St. Michael’s Tuesday night, 6:30, in a third non-district start. Then ATC will begin the New Year with a visit from non-district opponent Escalante on Jan. 2.
Versatile sophomore wing Charli Koseolgu, coming off an impressive cross country season where the Phoenix lost the team 2A title by two points to Penasco, turned in a team-high 11 points against the Bobcats, and Drake had good things to say about his defense.
“I was really happy with our defense,” he said. “Our offense is a little stale right now, but we’ve only had six practices with everybody.”
But a mix of offense and defense got ATC got away to a 18-5 lead after one quarter, then it outscored McCurdy, 10-4 in the second quarter for a 28-9 halftime advantage. It also did not allow the Bobcats to score double figures in any quarter.
In Los Alamos, St. Michael’s, under new head coach Sonya Ruiz, dropped its opener, 37-26, but received a team-high 10 points from Jada Lujan, with all coming in the first half.
Also the opener for the Hilltoppers, they led 20-18 at the intermission and 25-22 after three quarters, then outscored the Lady Horsemen, 12-4, in the final quarter to seal the victory. St. Michael’s has its home opener Tuesday versus Academy of Technology and The Classics.
