  • Boxing show on Saturday

    Two of the Meadow City’s favorite professional boxers will be in the ring in separate bouts Saturday as part of “Battle at the Bosque” at the Santa Ana Star Casino in Bernalillo.

    Amanda Crespin (4-3-1) is scheduled to fight Carla Torres of Columbus, Ohio, in the co-main event.

    As part of the undercard, Michael Coca Gallegos looks to gain his first win in nine pro fights; he’s matched against debuting Donald Sanchez of Albuquerque.

  • Sports Roundup

    West Las Vegas’ softball team appears to have shaken loose from early-season doldrums, scoring a convincing 14-4 win Wednesday at Santa Fe Indian School.

    The Lady Dons led 11-3 by the fifth inning and finished with strength to put the key non-district win on ice.

    Marrisa Cordova delivered another strong pitching performance, and the Lady Dons defense held, as the shortstop (Gabby Griego) to first (Larrissa Gallegos) groundout play was in midseason form.

    The game, originally scheduled Tuesday, was switched to a day later.
