  • Cowboys sweep Cougars

    Weathering one huge inning from their Colorado Christian hosts, the New Mexico Highlands University Cowboys did all the talking the rest of the game Saturday in Lakewood, Colo., in a 16-8 victory.

    The win clinched a series win for NMHU following Friday’s doubleheader sweep. Then it became a sweep as the visitors won 13-4 in the finale late Saturday.

    Highlands — winner of eight consecutive games — is 22-15 overall and 19-8 in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference.
