District 7-1A championship

Santa Fe Waldorf 3, Jemez Valley 0

What happened: Eight is great for the Lady Wolves, who won their eighth-straight district tournament title Friday after defeating the Lady Warriors, 25-22, 25-8, 25-17. Waldorf, which won the regular-season district title, secured the district’s lone spot in the Class 1A State Tournament by taking the tournament title.

“The girls played great,” Waldorf head coach Jon Caley said.

The win was the sixth in the last seven matches for the Lady Wolves.

James Barron and Will Webber talk state soccer, discuss the Capital football team's chances against the storied Artesia Bulldogs in the first round of the playoffs, and touch on the UNM men's basketball team's outlook to start the season.

Standouts: Caley said the senior duo of Nicoya Dant and Colibri Yellowhorse led the way with their strong play at the net.

What’s next: Waldorf will find out its placement in the 1A bracket Sunday, but should earn the No. 12 seed. That means it will play in the opening round Thursday in the Santa Ana Star Center.
