  • Morgan, Lady Dons sink Lady Pirates

    Seven Lady Dons scored as part of a balanced attack that sunk the Grants Lady Pirates 69-53 on Tuesday night in Grants.

    The victory was West Las Vegas’ 15th in 18 games this season.

    Solid in the paint and on the free-throw line, West forward Kerstin Morgan led all scorers with 19 points.

    \Lady Dons senior guard Deanna Bustos torched the hosts for three 3-pointers in the opening period. The touch from the perimeter helped West take a 20-18 edge going into the second quarter.

  • RHS girls overcome slow start

    Jasmine Jenkins had the only made field goal and six of Robertson’s seven points in the first quarter Monday in the team’s late-add game with Miyamura at Mike Marr Gym.

    Then the rest of the Lady Cardinals started to get into the act.

    Robertson wound up with a 54-40 win, its second in a row, to improve to 7-10.

    Head coach Leroy Barela and his squad are scheduled to play Thoreau at home on Saturday.

  • Battle of top-three neighbors

    MORA — Manuel Romero doesn’t carry himself like a visitor when he finds himself on the sideline reserved for guests at Joseph Montoya Gymnasium.

    He looks quite comfortable, thank you. Like a guy visiting his old home.

    A couple of championship banners hanging overhead may offer a clue as to why. Romero was head coach at Mora in 1995 and 1998, when the Rangers earned those coveted banners, and there’s a certain amount of reverence he still has among the basketball fans of Mora County.
