CHINLE, Ariz. - Raul Mendoza is the new head boys’ basketball coach at Chinle High School, officials recently announced.

Mendoza, who previously coached the boys’ basketball team at Window Rock High School, takes over a Wildcats’ team that went 4-17, 0-11 Sectional, last year, but also a (Chinle) team that went 22-7 a year prior under then Head Coach Brandon Tso.

The Ninth Annual Bowl for Kids’ Sake event was held on May 30 at Gal-A-Bowl and was again a big success, according to Sarah Piano, the Regional Director for McKinley County of the Big Brothers, Big Sisters organization. The theme for this year’s event was 50’s Rock and Roll and the 46 teams entered raised a total of $33,872.88 and additional sponsorships brought in another $25,500. And more is still coming in to increase the total.

Considering the five agencies statewide raised $184,937 this year, Gallup’s share of almost 30 percent of that total is very telling. Truth is, this area always contributes well to a worthy cause!

The teams must raise $100 per bowler - $500 per...
