  • Team effort lifts RHS boys

    Robertson’s Ryan Tafoya had just picked up his fourth foul and was forced to sit — his Cardinals trailing by five — and West Las Vegas was in the driver’s seat.

    But the rest of the RHS crew stepped up and outscored the Dons 23-6, taking a 60-49 lead, all with Tafoya on the sidelines.

    By the time the Cardinals’ scoring leader returned with 4:56 left in the game, momentum had swung back in the favor of the home team. And there it stayed, as Robertson took a hard-fought 64-59 win on Wednesday at Mike Marr Gym.

  • Lady Dons reach 2-3A final

    The Lady Dons of West Las Vegas have looked like anything but the fifth-seeded team in the District 2-3A girls’ basketball tournament.

    West romped past fourth-seeded Raton 79-61 on Monday, slapped third-seeded Robertson 99-60 on Tuesday, then pulled out a 65-58 win at second-seeded Pojoaque on Wednesday.

    The three consecutive road victories landed the Lady Dons in Friday night’s final along with host Taos.

  • No break for child molester

    The former day-care owner who pleaded guilty to molesting two children who attended his facility was sentenced Monday to three years of probation.

    In imposing her sentence, Judge Abigail Aragon rejected requests from both defendant Edward Quintana and defense attorney Gerald Baca for a deferred sentence, which would have left the door open to the charges being removed from his record once he successfully completed his probation.
