  • East owns rematch

    Pitching problems tripped up West Las Vegas on Tuesday afternoon, and visiting Robertson capitalized on it — on both the baseball and softball diamonds at the WLV complex.

    So after having split doubleheaders with their crosstown rivals earlier this spring, the Robertson Cardinals and Lady Cardinals secured wins in the regular-season East-West series.

  • District tennis prelim on tap

    A rare home appearance for local tennis players is set for this weekend, when Robertson hosts the pre-district tournaments –– well, part of them, anyway.

    Then the Fulgenzi Tennis Complex on the RHS campus will host the team portion at 9 a.m. Saturday.

  • Sisters triumph in state free-...

    A sister act reigned supreme in this year’s Knights of Columbus state free-throw shooting competitions.

    Michaela Vigil Lujan and Savannah Vigil Lujan, 15-year-old twin sisters from Las Vegas, placed first and second, respectively, in Knights’ annual showdown of sharpshooters March 22 in Española.

    Michaela swished 22 out of 25 free throws to claim the championship, capping a run that began with her winning a chapter title in Los Alamos.

  • Quintana wins 4th golf tourney

    Having ensured herself a return trip to the state golf tournament next month, West Las Vegas’ Joedy Quintana has turned her attention to winning tournaments (not to mention track meets).

    Quintana shot an 84 in Monday’s West Las Vegas Invitational held at New Mexico Highlands University’s Gene Torres Golf Course. That was three strokes better than runner-up Briana Paiz (87) of Raton, who’d essentially made it a two-person chase for the individual girls’ championship.

    Robertson’s Andrea Vaisa came in third, shooting a 93.

  • Lady Cards sweep Elkettes

    Robertson softball made a big move toward a District 2-3A title by sweeping Pojoaque 5-2 and 7-3 on Saturday in Jacona.

    Elena Garcia won game one, said RHS coach Adrian Jaramillo, by “pitching a very disciplined game.”

    Then in game two, eighth grader Kendra Duran recorded a pitching victory in her debut with the varsity squad, also hitting a home run to help her own cause. Elicia Trujillo also homered for the Lady Cardinals.
