Raton basketball marked the win column Saturday evening as both the boys and girls hosted ATC Saturday evening playing some of their better basketball in a while especially for the girls.

Coach Michelle Boone has been working to find the right combination of players for the team and may have found that as she substituted in and out with five players Saturday evening. The girls came off a 51-35 loss to district opponents Tierra Encantada on Tuesday. A sluggish season so far for the girls has pushed them to perform in district play to get things back on track to play in the district tourney coming up late next month.

The girls had also struggled in the shooting game but came out and worked the ball inside to score 22 and 21 points in the second and third quarters. The defense also did their job as they held ATC to just nine points in the second and third quarters. Raton also made it count at the free throw line as they went six of six while ATC managed a six of nine at the line.
