There’s a touch of cruel irony in the fact that Henry Sanchez died of an apparent heart attack. The man, after all, was all heart.
Sanchez, a former mayor of Las Vegas as well as a legendary New Mexico coach, died last week at the too-young age of 74. He left behind family, friends — and a better world, thanks to his service to God and community.
Halftime of Friday night’s homecoming game could have been the turning point for Robertson’s football season. It definitely was for the game itself.
RHS overcame a 9-6 deficit at intermission to overwhelm visiting Capital 44-9 at Cardinal Stadium, picking up the team’s first win after tough losses to Portales, Lovington, Santa Rosa and St. Mike’s to open the season.
Nick Ponce’s 1-yard touchdown pass to Kevon Williams with 11 seconds remaining lifted New Mexico Highlands to a come-from-behind 41-38 victory over Colorado Mesa on a sun-dappled Saturday afternoon at Perkins Stadium.
The Cowboys are a hardy 4-0 under first-year head coach Eric Young, and Saturday’s win tested their resilience throughout.

The running reunion of Mora’s Chavez brothers was especially joyous Saturday at the Gene Torres Golf Course.
Older brother Henrique was instrumental in helping the New Mexico Highlands University men’s varsity take second place in its own NMHU XC Jam. Younger brother Alonzo won the boys’ varsity race in the Meadow City Invitational, staking the Mora Rangers to a fifth-place team finish.
Tested by a scrappy, smart Santa Rosa squad, the West Las Vegas volleyball team took two of three razor-close games before dominating the decisive fourth this past Wednesday night at the Gillie Lopez Gym.
The pursuit played out on city streets at about 1:26 a.m. seven weeks ago.
A Las Vegas police dispatcher was following a family member who she reportedly described as driving erratically. And she apparently told one of her colleagues on the police force that he seemed to be drunk and that she was trying to get him to stop and to go home.
Officers scrambled trying to intercept the silver vehicle. But that vehicle was “flying” through west side streets, one officer said. No sirens are audible in the police recordings.
