  • Cardinal sluggers second at St. Mike’s

    Out-of-town tournament play marked a busy weekend for Las Vegas’ high school baseball and softball teams.

    Robertson baseball (5-2) tangled with Cobre for the tournament championship of the Jim Pierce Memorial Invite hosted by St. Michael’s in Santa Fe.

    Cobre won a tough one for the Cardinals, 14-6.

    It’s been a strong start for first-year coach Kenneth Sandoval and the Redbird sluggers, who’ve pitched well and figure to get even better with the return of several players from basketball.

    The exchange occurred toward the end of a nearly three-hour City Council meeting when Gurule-Giron asked for the status of Timothy Dodge’s contract.

    Ortiz reminded the Council that he had previously informed them of his intent to recommend Dodge’s continued employment.

    On Sunday, the bicycling event she founded in Albuquerque last year to bring attention to her battle will take place. It’s a testament to the fact that her mission to educate others lives on through the efforts of her family.
