Pictured above, Jojo Hurd goes in for the easy scoop during the Escalante Lobos' 82-54 victory over the Penasco Panthers last Friday night in Penasco. The win helped the Lobos attain a #2 seed in the 2A District 5 tournament, under way this week, with games beginning tonight.

Lobos Tristan Martinez(#23) and Waylon Hinds make it all but impossible for Penasco's Adam Esquibel to get a clear shot during the Lobos 82-54 victory.
