  • Eighteen from Vegas make all-...

    Eight girls and eight boys, along with two coaches, from the Meadow City have been honored with selection to the All-District 2-4A basketball teams for 2017.

    The honorees were announced after the district tournament championship games held last week, Feb. 24 and 25, at Mike Marr Gym.


  • Johnson, Lawton earn RMAC acclaim

    Marlon Johnson didn’t simply lead the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference and his New Mexico Highlands men’s basketball team in double-doubles this winter.

    He averaged a double-double all season, exceeding the threshold 13 times in 27 games played.

    Johnson, a 6-10 senior forward from Joliet, Ill., averaged 14.4 points and 10.3 rebounds a game. He also had 2.6 assists and 1.6 blocks per outing, leading the Cowboys in both categories.

  • Eastern takes two

    Errors proved costly for the Highlands Cowgirls on Wednesday afternoon, as visiting Eastern New Mexico took both games of a non-conference softball doubleheader at Cowgirl Field.

    NMHU (4-13 overall) committed six errors in game one and lost 9-7.

    Christian Bobian (3 for 5, four RBI) and Monica Caporal (3 of 4, one triple, one stolen base, three runs) shined for the Cowgirls. Highlands outhit Eastern 12-9, but the cause was hurt by untimely outs that stranded baserunners.

  • West world - Late three-pointer...

    John Balizan has found his happy place.

    It’s a little area near the far right corner, just beyond the three-point line. It’s where Balizan struck with an epic long-range basket for the second time this winter.

    This time the shot came with less than 10 seconds left in regulation on the biggest stage yet this basketball season – the District 2-4A boys’ tournament final Saturday night at Mike Marr Gym, with thousands in attendance.
