  • Friday night lights return

    Robertson begins its quest to return to the Class 4A state championship football game for a third straight time, kicking off Friday night at Estancia.

    Coach Leroy Gonzalez’s Cardinals are ranked No. 2 in both the MaxPreps and NMOTSC.com polls released within the past week.

  • Lady Dons go five at Bosque

    New West Las Vegas head volleyball coach Felix Flores called it “a marathon of a match” that took more than two hours.

    In the end, Bosque fended off a rally from the visiting Lady Dons to win in five games, 3-2, in a riveting season opener Tuesday evening in Albuquerque. Each of the last three games was decided by two points.

  • Stadium revamp ‘complicated’

    Who knew that peeling back the 14-year-old turf at Perkins Stadium would be akin to opening a Pandora’s box?

    Tuesday, New Mexico Highlands University’s Board of Regents heard the latest update from school administrators regarding the replacement of the stadium’s surface, a project that has taken all summer to complete, with no end in sight.

  • Cats damage Tope hopes

    Albuquerque (62-67) slid to third in its division — two and a half games out of first — thanks to a disastrous road series in Sacramento.

    The host River Cats won 3-2 Tuesday night for their third in four games with the Isotopes.

    A botched pickoff attempt allowed Tim Federowicz to score the winning run in the ninth.

  • A sneak preview for LV football

    With the official start to the 2017 prep football schedule just days away, local fans got a sneak preview of their favorite high school teams on Thursday.

    West Las Vegas got things started with a three-way scrimmage involving Class 6A Santa Fe High and Class 3A Santa Rosa, both programs projected to be on an upward trend this fall.

  • Isotopes nip Chihuahuas

    It appears we’re in for a dogfight atop the Pacific Southern division through the remainder of the Pacific Coast League baseball season.

    Albuquerque jumped back into second place Thursday night by defeating El Paso 5-2 on the road. The Isotopes went into Friday’s series finale with a half-game edge on the Chihuahuas, who’d briefly overtaken them the previous night.

    Both teams are chasing first-place Salt Lake, which led by a couple of games going into the weekend.

  • Cheer camps on tap

    Cheer and dance programs from both local high schools are offering instructional camps for youngsters this coming week.

    • West Las Vegas High School cheerleaders, who won a state championship in co-ed cheer this past year, are holding a cheer camp Aug. 23-24 at Armijo Elementary.

    The camp will run from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. both days and then culminate in a live performance at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 25, during the West Las Vegas football opener vs. Moriarty at the Herrera Complex.
