  • Thumbs: Our high country lowdown on the news, Feb. 16, 2018

  • The consequences of Trump’s first year

    Well, we all survived the first year of Donald Trump’s presidency.

    Even if you support him, you had to “survive” this first year too. You had to defend his misbehavior, which must have been difficult since a lot of it was indefensible.

    Hosting its third dual meet in less than a week — after months of road trips without a home event — the New Mexico Highlands wrestling team lost to Western State (Colo.) 23-16 on Tuesday evening at the Wilson Complex.

    In Highlands’ brief home schedule, it was the second dual that went down to the final match of the night.

    As they had against Colorado Mesa, the Cowboys racked up wins in the lower and middle weights, taking a 16-3 lead in the dual. But the Mountaineers won the last five weight classes to take the team victory.

  • Prep hoops roundup: Lady Cards one win away

    It may have been Valentine’s Day, but the Robertson girls’ basketball team was in no mood to be charitable.

    Early in the fourth quarter, up 66-9 after scoring 51 uninterrupted points against visiting Taos, the Lady Cardinals were still hustling. Alianza Darley and Maria Barela hit the deck for a loose ball, and seconds later, Angelica Montoya lunged to swat a Lady Tiger shot.

    Those three accounted for the next six points before — with 3:28 left in regulation — head coach Leroy Barela pulled his starters out.
