  • Dispatch New Mexico - The twists and turns en route to special legislative session

    OK, settle down, everybody seems to be saying as this latest special session approaches in Santa Fe; the only way to accomplish anything is to sit down and talk.

  • Darley signs with HU

    “You couldn’t pay me to run track,” said Alesa Darley, thinking back just a couple of years and her aversion to the sport.
    Oh, how times have changed.

    Darley, an outgoing Robertson High School senior, will soon be a member of the New Mexico Highlands track and field team. With family and friends in tow, she made it official on Monday afternoon, signing a letter of intent to continue her athletic and academic careers at NMHU.

  • Topes edge Dodgers in walk-off style

    Oklahoma City pitcher Brandon Morrow needed just one more out to seal a big road victory Wednesday night at Isotopes Park.

    But Morrow botched a throw to first after Daniel Castro put the ball in play on a full count. Castro trotted safely to first, and — more importantly — Albuquerque teammates Dustin Garneau and Rafael Ynoa scored the tying and winning runs.

    That’s how the Albuquerque Isotopes defeated the Oklahoma City Dodgers 9-8, coming back from what had once been a six-run deficit.

  • Cowgirls in Sunshine State for nationals

    Eight is enough, New Mexico Highlands University women’s track and field team hopes, to make a splash in this weekend’s NCAA Division II outdoor nationals in Bradenton, Florida.

    Eight Cowgirls will represent the school in the meet, which concludes the 2016-17 athletic year.

    NMHU junior Osheen Erskine, a native of Montego Bay, Jamaica, will compete in the 100-meter hurdles. Erskine won the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference title in the event and earned first-team All-RMAC honors. She may also run a leg of the 400-meter relay.
