The Lady Tigers stunned the home side 2 to 1, but were unable to follow up their victory back in the San Luis Valley the next day, falling 2-1 to Montezuma-Cortez. Standing 4-2-2 overall and against all 3A/2A Southwestern League opposition (3-1-2 against the loop’s 2A crews), DNHS was to begin this week’s work visiting non-league 3A Buena Vista Tuesday afternoon, April 9, then traveling to resume SWL play April 12 at 2A Ignacio.
