Three Mora Ranger boys’ basketball players recently brought home medals recognizing both on- and off-court accomplishment.
Tyler Martinez was named to the all-tournament team of the 62nd annual Northern Rio Grande Tournament hosted by Pojoaque Valley High School in Jacona. The Rangers, coached by Hank Laumbach, finished sixth in the tournament.
Additionally, Leo Paul Pacheco was among those honored for outstanding sportsmanship qualities, and Joshua D. Garcia was saluted for his academic work.
As with Las Vegas’ Stu Clark Tournament, the NRG recognized players from participating schools in the sportsmanship and academic categories.
Mora was 9-12 overall and 2-0 in District 4-2A going into this week’s game with Questa.
Laumbach is in his first season coaching the Rangers.
