  • RHS tennis hosting tournament

    As building (or rebuilding) projects go, Robertson tennis could do a lot worse than this.

    Both Juan Carlos Fulgenzi’s boys and Randy Garcia’s girls are long on youth and short on varsity experience. But both squads are coming off a good weekend that showed plenty of promise for the remaining six weeks of the season — and beyond. The Cardinal boys won the eight-team Carlsbad Invite and the Lady Cardinals took third after both took decisive wins at New Mexico Military.

  • Cowboys sweep Lopers on Day 2

    New Mexico Highlands’ baseball team bolstered its hold on first place in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference on Sunday with a doubleheader sweep of host Nebraska-Kearney.

    And longtime NMHU coach Steve Jones earned his 400th win, extending his own all-time Cowboy baseball career coaching record.

  • Lady Dons fourth in St. Mike...

    West Las Vegas' softball team came away with a fourth-place finish over the weekend in the St. Michael’s Invitational.

    Coach Lucas Griego’s Lady Dons fell 11-10 to the tourney host Lady Horsemen on Saturday in the third-place game.

    WLV had led St. Mike’s 10-6 midway through the sixth inning before the home team rallied to steal the win.

    The Lady Dons shredded McCurdy 28-3 on Thursday morning to open the tourney. But they lost 6-2 to eventual champ Moriarty in a Friday semifinal.

  • RHS golf girls third

    Jayme Quintana shot a 93 on Monday in Socorro, qualifying her third and final leg for state.

    And she led Robertson to a third place finish out of eight teams in the girls’ Warrior Invitational.

    Robertson, which played without lead golfer Jamie Allen, has already made the cut for state as a team.

    “Not bad at all for our first tournament,” said coach Gene Gurule.

    The Cardinal boys were to play on Tuesday.

  • Ortiz back at Luna

    After roughly a month off, Luna Community College head baseball coach Peter Ortiz is back on the job, the school reports.

    “Peter Ortiz has been reinstated as baseball coach at Luna Community College,” said Jesse Gallegos, LCC’s public information officer, in a written statement issued late last week. “He had been on administrative leave. Additional steps are being taken to improve our athletic programs.”

  • Field Day: West Invitational

    The Frank Herrera Complex officially unveiled its new all-weather track for a first competition on Saturday.  As it turned out, the “all-weather” part was put to an immediate test. Saturday saw brisk breezes chill the early morning, when the West Las Vegas Track and Field Invitational began. This was followed by smatterings of light rain and even snowfall, interspersed with fleeting periods of sunshine and relative warmth.

  • Highlands' teams split

    New Mexico Highlands split the first half of a series in baseball and softball over the weekend in Nebraska. Friday at Nebraska-Kearney, Jason Carr smashed two home runs to help the 12th-ranked Cowboys (19-6, 9-3) break the host Lopers’ eight-game win streak 9-6.

  • Cardinal netters take Carlsbad

    Youth hasn’t hurt Robertson’s tennis teams too much this year. The Cardinal boys followed a 6-3 win at New Mexico Military with a tournament title in Carlsbad over the weekend. And the Lady Cards placed third in the Carlsbad event after also beating NMMI in Roswell. Coach Juan Carlos Fulgenzi’s bunch edged El Paso Jefferson 52 points to 50 for first place in an eight-team tourney.  Amadeo Lopez won at No. 3 singles, beating Donnie Rodriguez of Carlsbad 6-4, 5-7, 7-5 in the final. The Cards also got a title at No.

  • Montoya moving on

    Daniella Montoya isn’t afraid of uphill battles.

    When Montoya first joined the Robertson High School varsity volleyball team five years ago as an eighth-grader, the squad was “a long way from being a contender,” as she put it.

    But before her high school volleyball days were over, the Lady Cardinals had twice made it to the Class 3A state championship match (and were a semifinalist this past season).
