Local Sports

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Natalia Chavez hit one of the state’s biggest shots in last year’s Class 5A Girls State Championship game at the Pit. An overtime buzzer-beater from half-court sealed a State Title for the Volcano Vista Hawks. The soon-to-be high school senior will now look forward to hitting more big shots in the Pit as she verbally committed to play basketball for the Lobos on Sunday via social media.

Natalia and her Volcano Vista teammate Jaelyn Bates will join the Lobos in 2022.
