  • Cowboys look for breakthrough

    NMHU is looking for its first win of the football season on Saturday when in-state rival Western New Mexico comes to town. The game will be at 1 p.m. at Perkins Stadium.

    To be fair, the first couple of games have been against stout opposition.

    Eastern New Mexico, which beat Highlands 44-21 in the season opener Sept. 6 at Perkins Stadium, is the defending co-champion of the Lone Star Conference.

  • Highlands cross country sets the bar in the fall

    Consistently the flag-bearer for competitiveness among fall sports programs at New Mexico Highlands University, the school’s cross country team is off to another promising start this fall.

    The men raced to an open win in the season-opening Northern Arizona University George Kyte Invitational in Flagstaff on Sept. 6, paced by Stephen Carbajal’s 23:52 finish, good for ninth overall and second among college men.

    Then the Cowboy harriers ran fifth in the Texas Tech Red Raider Invite on Sept. 12 in Lubbock, Texas. Carbajal was 16th individually.

  • Soccer, volleyball host matches

    NMHU women’s soccer will round out homecoming weekend with a home matinee Sunday against league rival Fort Lewis.

    Kickoff is noon at Perkins Stadium.

    The Cowgirls, coached by Justin Wagar, were 3-1 going into a midweek road game at Colorado State-Pueblo. Not counting a 4-0 loss at Angelo State on Sept. 7 in San Angelo, Texas, the team has outscored opponents a combined 10-0, with wins over Texas-Permian Basin, West Texas A&M and Eastern New Mexico.

    “I still relish the challenges of teaching students,” said Maureen Romine, whose tenure at Highlands has spanned 42 years.

    This year’s parade will begin at 10 a.m. Sept. 20  and will run from Fifth Street and Friedman Avenue to the Plaza Park.

    There might be a few who say Homecoming is just another game.

    But to those who know otherwise, the combination of marching band music filling a crisp fall afternoon, the company of friends and the excitement leading up to the big match, Homecoming Week at New Mexico Highlands is a long-standing tradition.

    For generations, Highlands’ friends, alumni and their families have returned to the grounds to take part in a community celebration where their journey began.
