  • ‘Beasties’ rumble past East Mountain

    Once upon a time, the East Mountain girls’ soccer team was responsible for ousting Robertson from the state tournament — another classic case of entrenched private school trumping public on the postseason pitch.

    But Wednesday’s match at RHS Field was far removed from that chapter in Beastie Girls history — in more ways than one.

    Robertson (6-2 overall) scored three times in the first 11 minutes and went on to an 8-0 romp.

  • Friday night huge for LV prep teams

    Two of the top three Class 4A football teams in New Mexico will clash Friday night at Cardinal Stadium.

    Top-ranked Robertson and usual nemesis St. Michael’s, the No. 3 team according to the NMOTSC.com poll, kick off at 7 p.m.

    The Cardinals’ front line has been clicking, resulting in good production in the ground game. QB Dominic Lucero is averaging 115.7 rush yards a game, with Marcelo Cedillo and Joseph Paul Griego at 74.3 and 60.3, respectively.

  • Cowboys look for breakthrough

    NMHU is looking for its first win of the football season on Saturday when in-state rival Western New Mexico comes to town. The game will be at 1 p.m. at Perkins Stadium.

    To be fair, the first couple of games have been against stout opposition.

    Eastern New Mexico, which beat Highlands 44-21 in the season opener Sept. 6 at Perkins Stadium, is the defending co-champion of the Lone Star Conference.

  • Highlands cross country sets the bar in the fall

    Consistently the flag-bearer for competitiveness among fall sports programs at New Mexico Highlands University, the school’s cross country team is off to another promising start this fall.

    The men raced to an open win in the season-opening Northern Arizona University George Kyte Invitational in Flagstaff on Sept. 6, paced by Stephen Carbajal’s 23:52 finish, good for ninth overall and second among college men.

    Then the Cowboy harriers ran fifth in the Texas Tech Red Raider Invite on Sept. 12 in Lubbock, Texas. Carbajal was 16th individually.

  • Soccer, volleyball host matches

    NMHU women’s soccer will round out homecoming weekend with a home matinee Sunday against league rival Fort Lewis.

    Kickoff is noon at Perkins Stadium.

    The Cowgirls, coached by Justin Wagar, were 3-1 going into a midweek road game at Colorado State-Pueblo. Not counting a 4-0 loss at Angelo State on Sept. 7 in San Angelo, Texas, the team has outscored opponents a combined 10-0, with wins over Texas-Permian Basin, West Texas A&M and Eastern New Mexico.
