Lobos win St. Augustine Basketball Tournament By N. Waddell After posting a big win over the tall Globe High School Tiger team on Tuesday and then having a rough time with the speedy and aggressive Panthers of Superior High on Thursday, the Hayden Lobo basketball team packed their gear and headed for Tucson to play in the nine-team St. Augustine Basketball Tournament on Saturday Dec. 8. The Lobos started tournament matched up against the

Knights of Immaculate Heart High. The Lobo running game, behind the scoring of Julian Gomez and Marcos Gonzales and the tough defense of Adrian Ochoa, proved too much for the Knights falling behind after the first half of play 28-18. Gonzales cooled off in the second half but Gomez continued with his hot hand and Ochoa’s tough defense got stronger leading the Lobos to a 64-51 win over the Knights. Gomez finished the game

with 31 points followed by 11 points from Michael Rabago and Marcos Gonzales. Adrian Ochoa had only five points but was a monster on the defensive end of the court. Matt Martinez, Eric Rivera and Gabriel Ramos each scored two points. The Lobos next pool game was against the Wolves of Alta Vista High School, a run and gun team that got beat by another running team, the Lobos. Behind the scoring of Julian

game for the Lobos against the Wolves scoring 40 points. Michael Rabago pumped in 17 points for the Lobos with Marcos Gonzales getting six Lobo points. Adrian Ochoa scored only two points before leaving the game with an illness. The Lobos again were matched with a team that liked to run in the semi-finals of the tournament and again the running Lobos proved to be too much for the Sabercats of San Lobos, Page 8

With the Lobos increasing their lead by as much as 25 points, the Lobo coaches decided to give their reserve players some playing time. The final buzzer had the Wolves breathing hard and the Lobos celebrating a 65-49 win to take the number one spot from their pool and a spot in the semi-finals against another tough running team, the San Tan Foothills High School Sabercats. Julian Gomez had a big

Gomez and Michael Rabago, the Lobos took an 11-point lead into the half time break with a 35-24 score. The second half was also hot and furious and the Wolves got a break when the tough defensive play of Adrian Ochoa went to the bench with an illness. The tough defense of the Lobos did not stop with Ochoa on the bench and it was obvious that the Wolves were running out of gas trying to keep up with Lobos.

Lady Lobos lose two games By N. Waddell The Lady Lobo basketball team took on the Lady Tigers of Globe High School and the Lady Panthers of Superior High School last week with very little success mainly coming from their inability to put the basketball in the basket. The Lady Tigers were on the Hayden court on Tuesday Dec. 4 quickly taking a six-point lead over the Lady Lobos in the first quarter when the Lobos could only come up with two points to trail 2-8.

The Lady Lobos fought back in the second quarter picking up their scoring but the Lady Tigers kept matching their output to go into the locker room at halftime with a 9-16 lead. The scoring by both teams picked up in the third quarter and again the Tigers kept matching the Lobo scores to take a 22-31 lead at the end of three quarters of play. Just like in the first quarter, the scoring went by the way side for the Lobos only able to score two Lady Lobos, Page 9

Hall, Birkett to be recognized for their school board service By Mila Besich-Lira Residents in Kearny are invited to a reception honoring Gary Birkett and Zola Hall. The district is recognizing these individuals for their many years of service to the Ray Unified School Board. The reception will begin at 7:30 p.m. at the District Office on Thursday, December 13, 2012. The two have served the district for a combined 48 years. The Copper Basin News met with the two to talk about their longtime service

to the district and what they will miss most about serving the district and what they felt were the most challenging things about being a board member. Gary Birkett has served on the Ray Unified School district for 20 years, with the exception of one term that he did not run. He began his board service in 1992. Birkett said one of the most challenging things about being a board member is never really knowing how much money the district would re-

ceive each year. “It is not always financial problems,” he said “Sometimes we get so focused on

the small issues like busses, and cafeteria issues that we end up not focusing on the academic issues.” Birkett said

he is going to miss meeting the new teachers, staff and students. He said he is glad to see new members elected to the board that have children in the district. His son graduated two years ago so he felt it was time for others “who have skin in the game” to serve on the board. Hall has served the board for 28 years. A longtime Copper Basin area resident Hall can remember when the communities of Kearny and Hayden were bustling and when Kearny and Scottsdale were the communities who had the highest salaries per capita in the state. Hall explained that the most challenging times serving on the board were times when the administration was changing and of course the difficult financial situations the board often faced. “It is especially hard when we lose longtime teachers, it

is so difficult to find teachers to come to our schools,” she said. When asked what she is going to miss most about being a board member, Hall replied “I am going to miss being a board member, we have always had a good board, we have never had the rage other boards in the area have had and we have always agreed to disagree at times.” Advice to the new board members, both Hall and Birkett gave some advice to the incoming board members. “Keep in mind that you are there for the students, it is easy to forget that” explained Birkett. Hall recommended that new board members not have a personal agenda and also suggested that they network and learn from the Arizona School Board Association. Both Hall and Birkett explained that they would have liked to see the Ray and Hayden-Winkelman School districts combine. “I don’t think we worked hard enough to try and combine the districts,” explained Hall. Both felt that if the districts were to combine at some point they could be much stronger. Birkett also explained that he would like to see the Ray school district add more vocational programs and consider joining the Cobre Valley Institute of Technology (CVIT). During the interview both joked about their often differences but both agreed if they had one request to the Arizona State Legislature they would ask that law makers think about how legislation they make affects small and rural schools and both agreed that they would like to see more technology be introduced into the district including maybe online courses in the future. “The school district is in good hands and it is time for us to ride off into the sunset,” said Birkett.
