If UConn women's basketball is bad for the game, how come record crowds home and away, record TV ratings, recognition for women's hoops?
And is it bad that the streaking Huskies continue to win and win and win while other programs chase to no avail?
By ARNIE LESHIN
Bad for the game? Puleeze! That's untrue, nonsense, ridiculous, a bad statement to make, and whoever is foolish enough to point to this had better check out the true facts because the University of Connecticut women's basketball is "good" for the game.
Let's start with Gino Auriemma signing his first contract at a Dunkin Donuts in Storrs, Conn. He was taking over a program coming off a 10-17 sea>

St. Michael's senior Julian Brittain, at 220, brings 23-2 record in 1-4A, Santa Fe High freshman Isaac Beltran, at 113, is 34-7 in 6A
By ARNIE LESHIN
It might appear to be in error, but the lone undefeated wrestler in 1-4A is Javier Tapia, now a sophomore at Pojoaque Valley.
If he sounds familiar, he's the same grappler who won the state championship while a freshman at Capital High. Why did he transfer and>

Once Cheyenne Garcia had a phobia for water, now Santa Fe High senior in quest for second- time
Her best chance is again in the 100-yard breaststroke in the weekend state championships at the Albuquerque Academy Natatorium
By ARNIE LESHIN
Growing up, Cheyenne Garcia had a phobia for the water, but she had no problem running along cross country trails comprised of rocks, sticks, stones, frustrating up-hills, steep down-hills, and a quagmire of mud and water on a rainy day.
Doing this was no doubt a challenge, but for the now Santa Fe High senior, it was much less a dilemma stepp>

You learn courage by couraging
Meghan Kaschner - A Girls Inc. Girl
"Courage is like — it's a habitus, a habit, a virtue: you get it by courageous acts. It's like you learn to swim by swimming. You learn courage by couraging." — Marie M. Daly, the first African American woman to earn a Ph. D. in chemistry.
Learning about other women who had to fight for what they thought was right has helped me realize that my world is not something I should take for granted, and I should stand up for the things that I think are right. Girls Inc. has encouraged me to go out of my comfort zone to explore new adventures and ideas about life.

By ARNIE LESHIN
Not only did Santa Fe High senior Cheyenne Garcia get to stand on the podium at last year's state swimming-diving championships, but in finishing third, it was even more impressive to place that well in a record-breaking 100-yard breaststroke.
Now she gets another try in her favorite event, except that she again lines up against junior Lauren Burckel of Albuquerque Eldorado, who broke th>

Santa Fe's Go Big moment
One of the things I'm proudest of about Santa Fe is that we take care of one another and stand up for what's right. We never shy away from big challenges. That's what we've always done as a community.
That's why I'm excited to personally tell you about Pre-K for Santa Fe, our initiative to ensure that all of Santa Fe's three-and four-year olds have access to high-quality pre-kindergarten so they can begin kindergarten better prepared to learn.
There is no bigger priority for the city than making Santa Fe a better place for children to live, learn, and thrive. We take that challenge to heart. State government has been unable to pass comprehen>
