Organ Mountain falls to Rio Rancho 61-7 for second straight loss

LAS CRUCES — Organ Mountain High School fell to Rio Rancho 61—7 Saturday afternoon for its second straight loss after winning its first two games of the season. The Knights trailed 42—0 at the end of the first quarter, and officials ran the clock midway through the opening period. Organ Mountain avoided the New Mexico Activties Association's 50-point mercy rule in the first half by stopping the Rams on a two-point conversion to push the lead to 50—0 in the second quarter, but senior running back Noah Lopez scored on a 14-yard touchdown run to end the game with five minutes left in the third quarter.

Albuquerque students who choose to attend traditional district schools or charter schools are all public school students in our city. It’s time for adults to stop making false divisions between traditional district schools and charter public schools. After all, parents and students don’t see those divisions. They just want the best school to fit their needs.
