One of the biggest changes for Escalante will be their schedule. Initially, the Lobos’ District 1/5-2A had five teams.
Twenty or so miles apart in the upper tier of Rio Arriba County, the Escalante High School and Dulce High School volleyball teams are both off to quick starts in the 2018 season. The Lobos and the Hawks are both 3-0 so far this season. Despite their close proximity to each other, neither will meet during the regular season and will compete in different districts.
The Escalante High School boys basketball team won the consolation championship at the Northern Rio Grande basketball tournament, defeating Mesa Vista High School 62-39 Jan. 7 at Pojoaque Valley High School.
