Wed nesday, September 9, 2009 Superior Sun, Superior, Arizona Page 3 Richard Pacheco chosen 'outstanding' basketSaller in state prep All-Star Game; high point total of 15 nets award From the pages of the Aug. 27, 1959 Superior Sun: Richard Pacheco, top performer for the Superior High School Panthers for four Years, won the Governor's award as the outstand- ing player in the High School All-Star basketball game at Flagstaff last Friday night. Pacheco, six-footer who scored almost 200 points in'his career at SHS, led the ABC basketball team made up of players from small enrollment high schools to a lopsided 62-44 victory over the AA team Pacheco hit for six field goals and three free throws for 15 points while sharing play at guard with four other all-stars. Deadly shoot- ing and strong rebounding by the ABC's in the second quarter gave them a ten point lead at the midway point. High point man inthe gafiae, Pacheco was approached by several college coaches after his performance, including officials from the University of Arizona and the University of New Mexico. However, Pacheco said he told them he was definitely enrolling at Arizona State College at Flagstaff, where he has been offered a full scholarship during his whole four years. "I understand there is only one position left on the Lumberjack varsity, a guard spot. and I will be shooting for it." said the soft- spoken Pacheco. Flagstaff is one of the few schools that allow freshmen to compete on the varsity, one of the factors involved in Pacheco's choice of the college. Last year, the Lumberjacks turned in a very successful season, trimming the University of Arizona in one of their wins. Most of the starting five are returning. Flagstaff is also the alma mater of John Hight. the other outstand= mg basketball product of Superior High School in recent years. Got pomegranates? State Park volunteer wants to talk to YOU!
