NMHU sluggers reach semifinal of RMAC tournament

By Dave Kavanaugh

New Mexico Highlands may have been the sixth and last team to make the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference baseball tournament, but the Cowboys were one of the last teams playing by Saturday night, as the tourney field narrowed toward the finals.

Nebraska-Kearney held off the Cowboys 12-8 in a Saturday night semifinal to end Highlands’ run.

Highlands spotted UNK a 9-0 lead by the halfway point of the third inning before getting on the board in the bottom of the third. Eric Maupin drove in Erik Scott, and A.J. Alexander later did the same for J.P. Hollywood.
