Desert Sun Motors Sundevils Athlete of The Week

The Valley Daily Post, in cooperation with EVHS Athletics and our sponsor, Desert Sun Motors of Espanola, is proud to presents the EVHS Athlete of the Week.

EVHS Girls Basketball Team
This week the Desert Sun Athlete of the Week is an entire team. The Espanola Valley High School girls’ varsity basketball team has demonstrated what teamwork, commitment, and refusing to accept defeat looks like.

Coach Cindy Roybal nominated all her girls for this week's honor, saying “This team was one point away from Final at State with a 20 point comeback!”

It was a game all EVHS fans that attended will remember, capping an incredible season.

Coach Roybal added “We won the Capital & St. Mikes tournament twice, along with three-time District regular season, and three-time District Tournament Champion. We are now a three-time State Semi-finalist with 72-16 win-loss record.”

The girls team highlights what we all know but sometimes forget. In spite of all the challenges we face in our lives, in spite or all the difficulties our school district has gone through in the last year, there is strength in our community. And that strength showed up strong in our girls.

Congratulations Lady Sundevils. You ARE Champions.
