  • Robertson gets even - Fourth quarter belongs to the Cardinals

    For sheer dramatic value, Saturday night’s Robertson-West Las Vegas boys’ basketball sequel had a hard act to follow.

    And it really was no comparison to the spellbinding overtime classic won by West on Jan. 26.

    The Cardinals didn’t mind, though, because they ended up with a 59-52 win over their crosstown rivals.

    Ryan Tafoya led Robertson with 16 points, including two free throws to bring the curtain down with four seconds left.

  • Mora girls 20-2; Pecos boys 19-2

    District 2-2A archrivals Mora and Pecos butted heads in both boys’ and girls’ basketball this past Thursday at Montoya Gym, and things followed the expected script.

    The Rangerettes and Panthers, both riding high in the state rankings for Class 2A girls’ and boys’ hoops, respectively, dominated to maintain momentum as the season hits the home stretch.

    Mora girls 67, Pecos 38
    Pecos’ Lady Panthers showed fight in the early going, staying within a possession (18-15) by the end of the first quarter.

  • Ex-teacher absent from sex offender website

    During Jay Quintana’s sentencing hearing in November, one of his daughters pleaded with the judge to not make her father register as a sex offender because she feared that having him on the sex offender website would open up her family to further ridicule. Turns out she didn’t have anything to worry about.

    Although Judge George P. Eichwald ordered Quintana to register as a sex offender three months ago, neither his name nor his mug appear on the New Mexico sex offender website.

  • Accused Highlands official resigns
