    Splitting a Sunday doubleheader with Colorado State-Pueblo, the New Mexico Highlands softball team clinched its first series win of the year.

    NMHU, coached by Karin Gadberry, is now 9-17 overall and 4-11 in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference.

    Highlands won Sunday’s first game 5-4 in eight innings for a third consecutive victory over the visiting ThunderWolves, then dropped the series finale 14-3 in five frames.

  • Rocky Mountain hey! Griego 2nd,...

    Joseph Paul Griego battled to a runner-up finish in this past weekend’s Rocky Mountain Nationals, leading a strong contingent of Las Vegas wrestlers in one of the country’s more prestigious grappling events.

    Griego, a Robertson sophomore who earned a Class 4A state title in February, lost in a rare all-New Mexico final against fellow 145-pounder Richard Govea, the state champ in Class 6A for Volcano Vista. Govea scored a late fall to edge Griego, who finished the weekend with a 6-1 record.

    Hope springs eternal for Cowgirl softball.

    As if beckoned by the arrival of spring, the New Mexico Highlands squad has turned things around after a 1-13 start. The Cowgirls have won seven of their last 10 games and swept the first day of a four-game set with visiting Colorado State-Pueblo on Saturday at Cowgirl Field.

    NMHU won 9-4 and 2-0; the series was to conclude on Sunday.

  • NMSU bounced from tourneys

    The Associated Press

    OMAHA, Neb.  — A series of slow starts over the past few months had not prevented New Mexico State from winning 13 straight games and the Western Athletic Conference title.

    Another slow start Friday sent the Aggies home.

    After spotting second-seeded Kansas an 18-point first-half lead, coach Marvin Menzies’ bunch was unable to play catch-up in their NCAA Tournament opener. Frank Mason III had 17 points and the Jayhawks cruised to a 75-56 victory in the Midwest Region.

    The back-to-back-to-back-to back home runs came in a 27-4 loss to Howard College on Monday. It was the last of a four-game home series.

    Howard is currently No. 2 in the Western Junior College Athletic Conference.
