(Wildcat Sports) - The Artesia Bulldogs dominated the entire game Friday night with the Deming Wildcats.
In the non-district game, The Cats scored in the first quarter when Quarterback David Padron scored on a 25 yard quarterback keeper.
Richard Regalado, tight end for the Cats scored on a 45 yard touchdown pass.
Deming had 4 turnovers, which gave Artesia the opportunity to run the ball into their end zone.
The Wildcats have this week off with no football game Friday. The next game will be in two weeks Friday, October 5th when the Cats will be home for Football Parent night and will take on regional rival Silver City.
(Deming) – Close to 200 Deming High School seniors will be retaking the required state high school graduation test early next month.
High School Guidance Counselor Sherry Ellis said the seniors who did not
receive at least a score of 73 on the Standard Based Assessment they took in
the spring are included in that number, along with students who have
transferred to the district from other states.
This year’s senior class is the first graduating class required to pass the SBA in order to receive a high school diploma. Students who do not pass will receive a “certificate of completion” in lieu of a diploma.
And the test is much more difficult than the previous sophomore competency test, which was normed at about an 8th grade difficulty level. Officials said this test reflects 11th grade work.
Principal Janean Garney said the school has been offering tutoring in reading and math – the two subjects which must be passed for graduation – at lunch and after school, as well as in Columbus.
And she added that many seniors were within a few points of passing in the spring, so she is confident they will be able to pull their grade up on the retake.
The main hurdle, Garney believes, is having students take the test seriously. The retake test will be offered October 2nd and 4th, with results due back by December.
Seniors who don’t pass the retake will be given an Alternate Demonstration Assessment in the spring, but Garney said they still have not been told what the Alternate Demonstration Assessment will require of the students.
(Deming) -- It was almost a game that called for the mercy rule (50-0). However, in the last few mintues of the 4th quarter, the Hot Springs Tigers took the ball into the end zone sparing themself the mercy rule.
The final score was Deming 48 - Hot Springs 6.
Tune into AM 1230 KOTS Monday morning at 7:15 for Danny Rodriguez Wildcat Sports Update. Danny will have all the stats of tonights game.

And the high school staff will take students and parents on a tour of the school.
Garney said freshman orientation is just another way faculty and staff are looking to increase their efficiency and effectiveness to meet the needs of Deming High students.
Orientation Monday is set for 9am for students with last names starting with A through M… and at 1pm Monday for students with last names starting with N through Z.
In other D-H-S new, students entering 10th through 12th grades may pick up their schedules anytime from 9am to
3pm Tuesday, July 31st, through Thursday, August 2nd, in the main campus guidance office.
Classes begin on Monday, August 13th.
(Deming) -- The community "Class Act" after-graduation party will take place again this year at the Starmax entertainment center.
"Class Act" was first organized in the 1990s as a drug-free and alcohol-free party on graduation night as a way to help keep young people safe. One of this year's organizers, Debby Seats, said the party will run from 10 p-m Friday to 2 a-m Saturday.
Deming High School seniors are allowed one guest -- age 20 or younger -- and tickets are 10-dollars and on sale at the activities office. Tickets also will be sold at the door. Attendees will be able to take part in a professional casino set-up as well as enjoy free bowling, miniature golf, arcade games and two movies.

(Deming) -- The Deming High School Graduating Class of 2012 has been awarded the potential of over three-point-three million dollars in scholarships and awards.
That was the announcement made by Principal Janean Garney following Monday night's Deming High School Awards and Scholarship Recognition Program in the Deming Public Schools auditorium.
Garney said she phrases the announcement that way because some students are offered opportunities at more than one college or university, and so will have to decline some of the scholarships.
She said local scholarships totaled over 66-thousand dollars... national scholarships totaled over half-a-million dollars... offers from in-state schools totaled over two-million dollars... and offers from out-of-state schools totaled over 750-thousand dollars.
The Deming High Class of 2012 will graduate Friday evening at Memorial Stadium.
