The Alpine sports calendar is starting to fill up. With golf, tennis, and track and field just around the corner, other Buck teams also made news this week.

Powerlifting

Senior Aaliyah Fierro finished first in the girls 114 pound weight class at McCamey on Feb. 8. She squatted and dead lifted 225 pounds each in her winning performance. Italia Anaya finished third in her class.

Alex Natera completed a 425-pound deadlift, and finished second in the 181-pound weight class. Ryan Gooch finished fourth among the 220-pound contenders. Alpine next travels to Fort Stockton for their powerlift meet on Feb. 15.

Girls Basketball

On Feb. 12 the Lady Bucks celebrated Senior Night at Alpine High School after this edition of the Avalanche went to press. They hosted Crane in the final game of the regular season. Osiris Alferez is the lone 2020 graduate on this year’s team.

On Feb. 7 Alpine lost at Presidio 40-31. The Lady Bucks needed a win on Wednesday and a Tornillo loss in their final game for Alpine to qualify for postseason play.

Football

It’s a new year, but the accolades are still coming in for members of the 2019 District I champions. Three football players were named to the All-state Padilla Poll last month.

Junior Mason Cavness was named a second team defensive lineman. Aaron Fellows was named a second team all-around athlete, while punter Aziel Ordonez made the second team as well. Cavness led the team in sacks, and Ordonez averaged almost 40 yards per punt.

The Padilla Poll is named after long time Texas high school football coordinator and rankings expert Carl Padilla.
