It was a history making boys basketball game for Kevin Enriquez Saturday as he broke a Monte del Sol Charter School one-game scoring record in the 87-31 romp over Albuquerque Native American Community Academy.
In the District 2-4A contest played at the Albuquerque Jewish Community Center, the 6-foot-4 wing tossed in 47 points to wipe out Keith Hyde’s previous 15-year school mark of 43.
One of the state’s most consistent scorers, Enriquez included eight 3-pointers, while the Dragons had 13 in all.
Said MDSC head coach Ralph Casuas: “I’m proud of him. Hopefully, we can carry this type of play against Estancia on Tuesday.
Now all even at 10-10 overall, the Dragons are 2-2 heading into Estancia for district play. Estancia is 7-11 and 1-2 and have lost three in a row.
It was a day of high scores, with MDSC right up there with its 87, but Pojoaque Valley led the way with 90 in the 90-70 win over Moriarty, and Albuquerque High totaled 86 in the 86-64 triumph over Albuquerque Manzano.
In another boys game, Santa Fe Prep got past visiting West Las Vegas, 67-58, in 2-3A, holding the Dons to only two points during a 3-minute stretch. At the time the Griffins were up 52-50, but this increased their advantage to 59-52 with 90 seconds left.
It was a balanced scoring attack for Prep, with Match Grover showing the way with 19, Morgan Fields adding 15, Van Anderson 14 and Gabe Cordova 13.
Next stop for the Griffins (19-7 overall, 1-1 in district) is at Santa Fe Indian School Thursday, with the Dons (11-9, 2-2) playing host to St. Michael’s Tuesday.
