  • Cowboys sweep Cougars

    Weathering one huge inning from their Colorado Christian hosts, the New Mexico Highlands University Cowboys did all the talking the rest of the game Saturday in Lakewood, Colo., in a 16-8 victory.

    Highlands — winner of eight consecutive games — is 22-15 overall and 19-8 in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference.
