    A last hurrah — at least on the high school level — will come for four of the Meadow City’s premier athletes this week in North-South All-Star competition.

    Recent Robertson graduates Juliana Guerin and Dave Romero III will represent Las Vegas in the North tennis team’s matches on Monday and Tuesday in Albuquerque. Juan Carlos Fulgenzi of Robertson is the head coach for the North team.

  • Isotopes make bank vs. Reno

    Albuquerque Isotopes

    Before Friday night, the Albuquerque Isotopes had played six straight one-run games, but that all ended with a season-high 16-run outburst by the Isotopes on Friday against the Reno Aces.

    Albuquerque (51-56) routed Reno (56-51) 16-7 for its ninth win in its last 11 tries.

    Neither team got the offense going through the first two frames, but the Isotopes quickly put the game out of reach in the third inning.

  • State quests end for LV

    Las Vegas Little League’s time in the state tournaments came to a bitter end early this week with the elimination of three baseball teams.

    All three, the 9-10, 10-11 and 11-12 groups, had achieved District 4 championships to make the cut for state.

    Playing locally at La Plaza’s Rodriguez Park, Las Vegas 10-11 lost to Roadrunner All-Stars 15-9 on Tuesday morning in an elimination game.

    Roadrunner, the District 5 champ, went on to beat Carlsbad Shorthorn. Roadrunner was to play Lions Hondo on Thursday in a semifinal.

  • Alzheimer’s sacks Broncos owner

    The Associated Press

    ENGLEWOOD, Colo.  — Even as dementia began to rob him of some of his fondest memories over the past few years, Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen reported to work every day to oversee multimillion-dollar upgrades to the team’s training facilities and roster.

    So his absence from Dove Valley headquarters on Wednesday as players reported for physicals on the eve of training camp was as jarring as the announcement that the 70-year-old Bowlen was giving up control of the team because of Alzheimer’s disease.

  • Isotopes hold off Grizzlies

    Vote for Pedro.

    Pedro Baez bent but didn’t break in the top of the ninth inning, allowing one run on two hits but ultimately hanging on for a huge save as the Albuquerque Isotopes nipped Fresno 8-7 on Wednesday night at Isotopes Park.

    It was Baez’s sixth save of the summer and held up a win for fellow reliever Matt Magill (7-5).

    Albuquerque took control in the bottom of the fourth, flipping a 6-3 deficit into an 8-6 lead.

    Brock Peterson notched three RBI with a two-out double in the inning.
