  • District tournaments - Redbirds upset Elks in double OT

    Through six winless District 2-4A games this past regular season, Robertson’s boys’ basketball team was snakebit, losing by margins as large as 20 or as small as a single point (twice).

    But the young Cardinals never quite gave up on themselves.

    On Monday night, the attitude and effort paid off.

    Visiting No. 5 ranked Pojoaque Valley in the first game of the district tournament, the Cardinals pulled off a 69-64 upset in a wild double-overtime carnival ride of a contest.

    Having split a doubleheader  with WTAMU the previous day, New Mexico Highlands took a dramatic 2-1 win in 10 innings on Saturday at Brandt Park.

    Second baseman Nick Gonzales drove a double to left centerfield on the second pitch he saw from reliever Sean Michel.

    The extra-base hit allowed Colby Wilmer to dash home for the walk-off winner.

    DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.  — It was a bumpy buildup to the Daytona 500, which for days was overshadowed by disputes, drama, an injury to Kyle Busch and the suspension of his older brother, Kurt.

    Dozens of cars were wrecked, and on the morning of NASCAR’s season-opening showcase, reigning series champion Kevin Harvick warned “we’re going to tear up some (more).”

    So there was every reason to feel anxious going into “The Great American Race.”
