    To fellow members of the Vatos rugby club, Alani Tuineau Sione was more than a teammate.

    He was a brother.

    As can be expected, Sione’s death in a rollover accident Saturday on Interstate 25 near Santa Fe has shaken the tight-knit club to its core.

    Sione and other members of the club as well as other family members — including several young children — were returning from a rugby road trip when the crash took place.

  • Cowgirls drop Zias in four

    Former Rio Rancho star Darian Mullen connected on 18 kills while hitting .279 and added 11 digs in leading New Mexico Highlands past Eastern New Mexico three sets to one on Tuesday night at the Wilson Complex.

    It was Highlands’ home debut under new head coach Bryan Crawford, and the Cowgirls plan to stick around a while. They’ve got home matches with Western State and Adams State scheduled for Friday and Saturday evenings.
