Tiburones Sobre Ruedas Host Wheelchair Basketball Tournament

Sep 6, 2016 by Jim Ringquist

TiburonesMore than 70 athletes with seven participating teams from the Sonoran League took part in the weekend tournament on July 9th and 10th…These teams included the Aguilas of Navajoa, Cajemes from Cd. Obregón, Cascabeles from Caborca, the Heat from Nogales, Rayos out of Mexicali, as well as both the Tiburones Sobre Ruedas and Los Rolling Rockies of Puerto Peñasco.

On July 9th and 10th the Liga Sonora State Wheelchair Basketball Tournament was held here in Rocky Point…Mayor Kiko Munro was on hand to welcome the athletes and teams from Nogales, Navojoa, Caborca, Obregon as well as the two local teams from Puerto Peñasco the Tiburones Sobre Ruedas and the Rolling Rockies…Also joining in this competition were the RAYOS DE MEXICALI, although they are not part of the Liga Sonora…

The newest team to join the league, the Tiburones Sobre Ruedas of Puerto Peñasco (Sponsored by The Sonoran Resorts) were held to only one victory in their game against Obregon and for the first time in an official league game the Tiburones Sobre Ruedas lost to the other local Peñasco team the Rolling Rockies…

There was plenty of fast paced action and in the end this is how the teams finished:

Navojoa 1st, Nogales 2nd, Caborca 3rd, Rolling Rockies 4th, Tiburones 5th, Obregon 6th and Mexicali lost the 3 exhibition games they played in…

The Tiburones Sobre Ruedas could use your support, we are in need of official basketball wheelchairs any and all contributions to help us purchase these sport wheelchairs would be greatly appreciated… New chairs can cost several thousand dollars each and we would be pleased to be able to raise enough funds to purchase a couple used chairs which still can cost in the neighborhood of $700 to $800.
