The No.4 Cimarron Lady Blue Jays just had too much firepower for the Southwestern Heights Lady Mustangs to counter, especially on a rough shooting night. Heights saw their season come to a close with a 56-26 loss in the first round of sub-state.

Cimarron dominated from the opening tip, taking a15-1 lead by the end of the first quarter. A 19-10 advantage in the second quarter pushed the Lady Mustangs deficit to 23 at half (34-11).

By the end of the third quarter the lead was 29 (51-22). Cimarron put the game on cruise in the fourth for the win.

Heights finished the game just 5 of 34 from the field. Over have their points came at the free throw line (15).

The Lady Mustangs top scorers were Jackie Loya and Nayelly LaPoint each with 9. Loya was 0-10 from the field, but 9-10 at the line, and grabbled 8 rebounds.

The game also quietly marked the end of the incredible coaching career of Southwestern Heights coach Barry Mellen. Heights finished with a 9-12 record, only the second losing season in Mellen's 29 years in coaching.
