  • 10-11 All-Stars
  • Two Robbers home games moved to...

    The Las Vegas Train Robbers are scheduled to have five more home games this summer.

    But Las Vegas fans will only be able to see the team three more times in the Meadow City itself, weather permitting.

    The Pecos League late this past week indicated it would schedule two of the team’s remaining home dates for Santa Rosa instead of Las Vegas. The league Web site made it official on Monday that the home games scheduled for July 7 and July 13 would be held at Santa Rosa High School.

    No reason for the move was specified.

  • Mora juniors make history

    For the first time in more than two decades, Mora served as host to a District 4 Little League tournament this past weekend.

    And the locals made the most of it, too. The Mora Juniors (ages 13-14) baseball team prevailed over La Plaza in the final to win the district championship and punch a ticket to state.

    In addition to La Plaza, Santa Rosa and Taos fielded Juniors baseball teams for the seven-game tournament at Mora High School.

  • Smith brothers in national rodeo

    Area native Jett Smith and partner Gabriella Pargas of Grants teamed to place 11th in ribbon roping this past weekend at the National Junior High Finals Rodeo in Des Moines, Iowa.

    Smith and brother Jayde helped represent Team New Mexico, which landed up 11th in the national standings. New Mexico’s boys tied for eighth with Mississippi. Utah won the overall team division and boys’ team division. Texas won the girls’ team title.

    The Smith-Pargas average was listed as 34.68.
