  • Dons survive state test vs....

    A West Las Vegas touchdown in the closing minutes gave the Dons a come-from-behind win over Silver in the first round of the Class 4A state football playoffs.

    The final score was 32-29 West on an unseasonably warm Saturday afternoon at the Herrera Complex.

    It is West's first playoff win since 2003 and sets up a quarterfinal matchup between the Dons and crosstown rival Robertson next weekend. Kickoff for that game is 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 18, at Cardinal Stadium.

  • BREAKING: Robertson volleyball...

    For the second straight year, Robertson High will be playing for the Class 4A state volleyball championship.

    And again the opponent will be Sandia Prep, this time at 3 p.m. Saturday at the Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho.

    The Lady Cardinals, who have been ranked No. 2 much of the fall under second-year head coach Stacy Fulgenzi, earned a return trip to the 4A final by beating Moriarty on Friday night.

    RHS (21-2) won in straight sets, 25-15, 25-20, 25-21, bouncing the No. 5 Pintos (19-6); it was Robertson's third win over Moriarty in as many meetings this fall.

    Robertson is back in the final four of the Class 4A state volleyball tournament.

    The Lady Cardinals, who have been ranked No. 2 much of the fall under second-year head coach Stacy Fulgenzi, eliminated Silver in the quarterfinals on Friday afternoon at the Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho.

    Robertson won 25-16, 25-12, 25-14, to pick up its 20th victory of the season in 22 tries. Silver ends its year at 14-9.

  • Building a winner

    Not many people have a track record like Joshua DeHerrera’s.

    One individual state cross country championship. Three runner-up finishes in a row. And a lead role in three consecutive state team titles and one runner-up finish (decided by a razor-thin margin).
