The lo­cal wheel­chair bas­ket­ball team was able to raise the name of Quin­tana Roo on high by ob­tain­ing a ticket to the na­tional tour­na­ment which will be held in Novem­ber in Mexico City, with of­fi­cial dates yet to be con­firmed.

The Playa del Car­men quin­tet par­tic­i­pated in the Tabasco state fi­nals at the be­gin­ning of Septem­ber, to­gether with another team, the Jaguares of Chi­a­pas. The lo­cal teams par­tic­i­pat­ing were the La­gar­tos of Vil­la­her­mosa, Jaguares of Car­de­nas, and the Ti­gril­los of Huiman­guillo; the Pala­cio de los De­portes in Vil­la­her­mosa was the lo­ca­tion of this tour­na­ment.

The play­ers won all of the three games that they played. The first against the Ti­gril­los of Huiman­guillo by 39:14. The next game they de­feated the Jaguares of Vil­la­her­mosa, 44:34. Then in what was per­haps the most dis­puted game, they beat La­gar­tos of Cár­de­nas, 28:24.

The game was held on Septem­ber 11 and the war­riors, Mar­cos Pulido, Jesús Tosca, Omar Echev­er­ría, Rigel Rosado, An­to­nio Trapdo, Luis Az­corra, Ig­na­cio Vázquez and Pe­dro showed what they have learned from their trainer Juan Pablo, that in the face of a phys­i­cal set­back, for the heart, there is no im­ped­i­ment, as this great team won the ticket to the Na­tional Fi­nals.
