Diminutive Apache hits eight 3-pointers, is area’s top scorer

Last week’s top high school athletes:

Boys basketball: Stefen Romero, Sunnyside. The Blue Devils got wins over Douglas, Santa Rita and Chandler, and Romero played a sizable role in all three victories.

Romero averaged 19 points a game versus the three teams, getting 25 in a 61-60 win over Santa Rita and 23 in the 67-61 win over Chandler.

Girls basketball: Alani Gaxiola, Nogales. She may barely stand 5 feet tall in her shoes, but the guard had a couple of big games to lead the Apaches.

Gaxiola smoked Pueblo for 37 points in a 68-56 win, hitting eight 3-pointers and notching a season’s best in scoring for local players. She then added 16 points later in the week in a 41-32 win over Mountain View.

Boys soccer: Frankie Parks, Tucson High. Parks played a role in several goals during the Badgers’ two wins last week.

Parks set up the game-tying goal in the 72nd minute during a 2-1 win over Sahuaro. Tucson later won the game in penalty kicks.

He then scored a goal in the 78th minute against Amphi to give his team a 1-0 lead. He then set up another goal in the 79th minute in the 2-0 victory.

Girls soccer: Jessica Switzer, Pueblo. Getting two game-winning goals in a season is tough enough, but Switzer did it twice in a week.

She scored the goal in a 1-0 win over Sunnyside. She was equal to the task two days later, getting a goal in the 32nd minute against Desert View to lead the Warriors to a 1-0 win.

Wrestling: Andrea Hughes, Catalina Foothills. While Hughes isn’t the first girl to compete in wrestling, very few girls had the day she had during a quadrangular meet with Salpointe Catholic, Flowing Wells and Cholla.

Hughes went 3-0 on the day, winning two matches by pins and earning another win by forfeit in the 103-pound class.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
