  • Pecos program awaits NMAA ruling

    The 2017-18 basketball season of Pecos senior Carlos Cordova — and possibly the Class 3A state championship the Panthers won last winter — hang in the balance, awaiting a decision from the New Mexico Activities Association.

    The NMAA Board of Directors is expected to meet Dec. 12 to consider the eligibility of Cordova and related matters, including whether Pecos will have to forfeit any or all games in which Cordova has played in the last two years. The ruling could conceivably lead to a vacation of the 2017 state title, as some have speculated.

  • Robertson's Kendra Duran goes with Yavapai

    A quick, explosive bat.

    A durable, accurate pitching arm.

    Yavapai Junior College got both in one signing, as Robertson senior Kendra Duran made her college choice official this past month.

    Robertson’s Lady Cardinals have made consistent deep runs in the state tournament throughout Duran’s prep career, the last three under coach Michael Quintana.

    Last spring, they went undefeated in district and finished 21-8 and were one of the final six teams at state.

  • West Las Vegas' Robbie Alarcon headed for Highlands

    Robbie Alarcon didn’t have far to look to find a college baseball program that inspired him.

    Just a couple of blocks northeast, as a matter of fact.

    The West Las Vegas ace, who’ll play his senior season with the green and gold this spring, has signed a letter of intent with New Mexico Highlands.

    The NCAA Division II Cowboys have long been contenders in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference.

    Joining that tradition appealed to Alarcon, as did the thought of continuing his baseball career and his studies in his hometown.

  • Fulgenzi earns North All-Star nod in volleyball
