Sports

The top-ranked Las Cruces boys defeated Oñate 50-43 on Friday night to win the District 3-5A championship, and finish the regular season undefeated at 28-0.

The Bulldawgs were tested throughout the game by the Knights, who cut the lead to five points late in the fourth quarter, but Las Cruces was able to hold on to get the victory, and cement the impressive undefeated season.

“It’s just the first step towards accomplishing what we’ve wanted to do all year,” said senior Shae Hernandez. “We’re on to the next one now. We want to go get these four next wins where they really matter and count. It’s win or go home now so we gotta step it up.”
 
The Bulldawgs will find out their state tournament seeding on Sunday, but they will likely be the top seed in next week’s state tournament.
