    OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE
    The presentation of “Into the Woods” by the HU Singers (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) was outstanding. The duo of Daniel Torres (Cinderella’s Prince) and Stevin Alvino (Rapunzel’s Prince) in “Agony” was particularly delightful.  Thanks to Andre Garcia-Nuthmann, the music director, and the entire cast for an entertaining evening.

    A HORRIBLE TRAGEDY

  • Dispatch New Mexico - Police work is tough, but it has to be scrutinized

    It’s tough to be a cop these days.

    It always has been, but in today’s climate it’s particularly difficult. And it’s not just nationally, it’s local too, right here in cities and towns across New Mexico.

    Las Vegas Optic

    Solid efforts over the course of the year for Robertson boys’ golf will pay off Monday when the Cardinals take on the state tournament.

    The Cards qualified their third and final leg necessary to make the tourney as a team. Play runs Monday and Tuesday at Nancy Lopez Golf Course at Spring River in Roswell.

    RHS is coached by Erwin Baca and Jamie Allen. The boys’ team includes Robert Gallegos, Noah Gonzales, Leon Lujan, Justin Lesperance and Charlie Hillis.

    Rafael Ynoa tripled and went 3 for 5 with one run batted in and two scored to help Albuquerque defeat Sacramento 9-4 on Wednesday night at Isotopes Park.

    Ryan Casteel drove in three runs for the Isotopes and finished 2 of 4. Jordan Patterson went 1 for 2 with two walks and one RBI.

    Albuquerque (16-11 going into Thursday night’s game) trailed 3-1 midway through the fourth inning but scored four in its half, then added two runs in each of the next two frames.

  • Sluggers open state tourneys

    Las Vegas Optic

    In their four previous softball meetings this season — three in regular district play — Robertson has outscored Taos a combined 70-4, winning via mercy rule each time.

    On paper, then, it’s a mismatch for the Lady Cardinals, No. 1 seed in the Class 4A state tournament, in the state opener vs. No. 16 Taos this Saturday at RHS Field.

  • Padilla wins four events in Socorro

    West Las Vegas’ boys and Robertson’s girls both came away with championship trophies this past week at the Dave Mathieu Invitational track and field meet hosted by Socorro High School.
