  • Up that hill - Lady Cards race to district title; state meet looms

    Different course.

    Same brutal hill.

    Rodriguez Park served as the picturesque backdrop for Saturday morning’s District 2-3A cross country championships, but with the brutal hill better known as The Eliminator mocking them, the runners were taking on — not taking in — the scenery.

    Some fared better than others in doing so. Robertson’s girls, getting a strong push from dueling leaders Erica Herrera and Karlene Montaño, raced to a team title.

  • Cowboys to visit Lobos Monday

    NMHU men’s basketball will get a little statewide exposure Monday as head coach Joe Harge’s Cowboys take on the University of New Mexico Lobos in The Pit.

    An exhibition game that serves as the final tune-up before the regular season for both sides, Monday’s contest tips off at 7 p.m.

    Tickets ($17 and up) are available at the UNM box office.

  • Elkettes sweep Robertson

    Robertson may have lost in straight sets to district champion Pojoaque Valley Thursday night, but RHS coach Judith Trujillo said the Elkettes knew they’d been in a battle.

    Game scores were 25-15, 25-20, 25-15.

    “My girls played like a team,” Trujillo said. “We may not have won tonight, but they gave Pojoaque a heck of a game. Pojoaque had to work for their points tonight.”

  • Redbirds grab district football title

    It had the makings of a blowout but never quite got there.

    No matter; the Robertson Cardinals are District 2-3A football champions after Friday night’s 18-7 win at Taos, the No. 7 team in Class 3A.

    Robertson (5-4 overall, 3-0 district) closes the regular season this Friday at West Las Vegas.

  • Ulibarri’s career day not enough for Dons

    “Forget it, Jake. It’s Tiger Town.”

    Jake Ulibarri rushed for nearly 300 yards and scored four times Friday night in one of the finest individual efforts in West Las Vegas football history.

    But it wasn’t quite enough to win the game in regulation, and the host Raton Tigers trumped West in overtime, 34-28.

    After the Tigers kept Ulibarri from getting any closer than their 3-yard line in the Dons’ opening possession of overtime, they backed West to the original line of scrimmage on fourth down.

  • NMHU men 9th, miss nationals cut

    With two of their regular-season heroes ailing, the New Mexico Highlands cross country teams found themselves on the outside of the nationals picture on Saturday as the NCAA Division II South Central Regional played out in Denver.

    The Highlands men finished ninth with 220 team points behind champion Adams State (26), Western State (58), Colorado School of Mines (75), Colorado-Colorado Springs (118), Eastern New Mexico (174), Fort Lewis (178), West Texas A&M (211) and Metro State (216).

  • Regional water approach pushed

    State Engineer Scott Verhines was one of the first speakers. He talked about the importance of regional water plans to about 100 people who turned out for Tuesday’s first-ever Northeastern New Mexico Regional Water Symposium.

    Then they were all given a reality check.

    The bad news came from John Longworth, chief of the Water Use & Conservation Bureau, as he spoke about the longstanding drought and what to expect this winter.

  • Vegas has state’s top murder rate

    The city of Las Vegas had the highest murder rate in New Mexico in 2011, drawing a dubious distinction in the latest crime statistics released by the FBI this week.

    The annual Crime in the United States 2011 report contains mixed news for Las Vegas. Overall, both violent and property crime in the city is down.
