  • Lady Cards make tourney final

    All-tournament performances by Rachele Portillo, Lauren Fulgenzi, Jaci Fulgenzi and Brandee Fulgenzi buoyed the Robertson volleyball team to a runner-up finish in this past weekend’s Sandia Prep Invite in Albuquerque.

    RHS head coach Dominique Montoya said she was most impressed by “how well they played together.”

    “It was a total team effort. They played well against the No. 1 ranked team in our class.”

  • Homecoming heroics

    A bruising ground game led by Joseph Paul Griego and Marc Grano enabled Robertson to pull away from Capital for a 50-28 homecoming win Friday night at Cardinal Stadium.

    The Cardinals (3-2) darted out to a 20-0 lead but the Jaguars — who got a fine game from Augustine Larrañaga — rallied to within 28-22 at halftime.

  • Kickers net home victories

    Danielle Acuña’s presence on the left wing was huge for the New Mexico Highlands women’s soccer team Sunday as the Cowgirls stopped Western State 2-1 to round out homecoming week at Perkins.

    Acuña took a pass from Salina Lucero and slashed from the left flank to score in the 29th minute.

    About 10 minutes later, Acuña sent the ball into the box, and Molly Mortensen deflected it in for 2-0.

    Taylor Frick cut the lead in half in the 69th minute.

    Apolonia Thomas had five saves for the Cowgirls (4-3-1).

  • Locals sweep home meet

    Robertson High cross country teams earned two team plaques in a showcase effort for Las Vegas cross country runners Saturday at the annual Meadow City Invitational.

    Lady Cardinal freshman Makayla Quintana and West Las Vegas senior Kevin Villanueva raced to individual championships as the meet detoured to scenic, hilly Rodriguez Park.

    Unlike previous incarnations of the event, it was not combined with a New Mexico Highlands home meet. NMHU cancelled its meet this season and used the weekend to continue training.
