Trindad Padilla, Xavior Salazar, Heaven Duran, Denis Kartalija, Jose Ventura, and David Cota.  Our next game is next Wednesday here at Cortez against the Knights of St. Mary's.  Come out and support our Colts.


Cross Country (Yanez) Congrats to the Cross-Country team for a great race yesterday.  The boys came in 3rd place and the girls came in 4th place.  They competed against schools far bigger than us:  Liberty, Sunnyslope, Cactus and Independence.  Captain Bubasha Bisengo was the beast for Cortez's team finishing in 6th place out of 105 runners!  Every Cortez runner did their personal best record yesterday, some reducing their time by 5 minutes!  Great job, runners!
