  • Thumbs - Our high country lowdown on the news - Oct. 5, 2012

    THUMBS UP! HONOR FOR AN HONORABLE MAN. We hope former coach and Las Vegas mayor Henry Sanchez, who died last November at age 72, is smiling down right down. Highlands University has named the basketball floor in the Wilson Complex in his honor. Sanchez had a storied career as a New Mexico high school and college basketball coach, including as coach of the Highlands men’s team en route to a 702-450 won-loss career record.
    The lives he touched were immeasurable. We’re glad to see Highlands bestowing this honor on him.

  • Nuestra Historia - Early schools prospered in East Las Vegas

    Education is dominantly interwoven in the tale of two cities, from their earliest days. Just as Catholics had done in Old Town beginning in the 1860s, Protestants established New Town’s first school, the Las Vegas Academy, built in 1880 at the southeast corner of Douglas Avenue and 12th Street. By 1886, the impressive two-story brick school had an enrollment of 121 boys and 10 girls, and seven teachers provided instruction.

  • A Warm Welcome

    It’s near the halfway point in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference football season, and New Mexico Highlands University — picked to finish sixth in preseason poll — is holding on to a share of first place in the league standings.

    It’s a heady place to be for a team about to host a homecoming game in front of a few thousand people at Perkins Stadium, particularly considering opponent Western State won last year’s meeting 15-14 in Gunnison, Colo.

    Okay, New Mexico Highlands alumni. In case you haven’t been around for a while, let’s catch you up on how your alma mater is doing in other sports across campus.

    • NMHU men’s cross country leads the pack. The team has been ranked as high as 18th in the NCAA Division II this season and is sixth among men’s teams in the South Central region, the toughest in the nation. Highlands’ goal will be to crack that top six, the cut-off to qualify for nationals as a team.

  • ‘Beasties’ rise in prep rankings
