  • Cards, Dons drop football openers

    Robertson’s offense remains a work in progress, and the Portales Rams took advantage of that fact Friday night, doubling up the Cardinals 26-13 at Blackwater Draw.

    Meanwhile, back in the Meadow City, Clayton defeated West Las Vegas 45-20 in another opener for this prep football season.

    In each case, the competition was considerable. Portales is among the top-ranked teams in Class 4A along with the Cardinals. Clayton’s Yellowjackets have been to the Class 3A state final the last two years, winning in 2013.

    The format for Rust Buster Relays consist of teams of two who alternate running 1.5 miles until the team runs a total of 9 miles.

  • Young players lead Beasties to...

    Young players enjoyed major roles as the Robertson girls’ soccer team shut out Santa Fe Prep 3-0 in its season debut this past Saturday.

    “All the girls played with heart,” said first-year head coach Jeff Houdek.

    Freshmen Gabriella Montoya and Sierra Atencio scored, as did senior Amelia Zoernig. Montoya, Maddie Becker and Victoria Valdez had assists.

  • Lady Cards 2nd, Dons 4th in...

    The course was a thing of beauty, and so were several performances by some Meadow City distance runners in this past weekend’s Del Valdez Invitational at Black Mesa Golf Course near Española.

    Robertson’s girls came away with a second-place finish in their race, led by Anabella Miller (20:19), Makayla Quintana (20:29) and Morgan Diefendorf (20:47), who placed second, third and fifth, respectively.

  • Opening night: Lady Dons sweep...

    Although his Lady Dons took a straight-sets win over visiting Mora this past Thursday night in the season opener for both teams, West Las Vegas volleyball coach Eric Zamora was far from satisfied afterward.

    “Pretty sloppy tonight, I thought,” Zamora said. “I kind of figured it might be like that. We were missing one of our outside hitters (Kyanna Spaulding), and it affected us.”

    “We still found a way to win. There were a couple times we got a little rattled. We were able to weather the storm.”

    ENGLEWOOD, Colo.  — The long-term benefit of getting Peyton Manning so much rest this summer is that he should be fresher in December.

    The downside?

    September might not be so smooth.

    With longtime apprentice Brock Osweiler getting so many snaps this summer, Manning’s work has been curtailed and the quarterback who has long despised taking a day — or even a play — off, was 8 for 15 for 52 yards in his preseason debut last week.
