    So we meet again.

  • It’s Kansas City vs. New York

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Anyone arriving a little early to a New York Mets game this season has probably witnessed “The Walk.”

    Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom or another emerging ace striding in from the bullpen following pregame warmups, with pitching coach Dan Warthen right alongside — and the rest of that fearless rotation trailing just behind.

    For opposing hitters, it’s become an imposing march to impending doom.

  • RMAC: Grizzlies reign

    On Halloween week, the Adams family is back to its usual spot haunting the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference cross country standings.

    Adams State, owner of trophy cases full of national championships in the sport, swept to men’s and women’s RMAC team titles this past Saturday at Cattails Golf Course, its home venue in Alamosa, Colo.

    New Mexico Highlands had mixed results in the meet, with the men finishing ninth and the women 14th.

  • Beasties are back

    Despite having one of the younger lineups in the state, the Robertson girls’ soccer team had a winning record most of the regular season before finishing 7-7 overall.

    On Sunday, the squad and head coach Jeff Houdek learned their efforts weren’t in vain.

    Robertson was awarded the No. 8 seed in the Class 1A-4A state tournament, which begins this weekend at campus sites around New Mexico. The Lady Cardinals AKA Beastie Girls will host No. 9 Monte del Sol (10-8-1) at 1 p.m. Saturday as part of the first round.

    Cross country

  • RHS runners sweep in Desert...

    Makayla Quintana picked up her fourth individual championship of cross country season, leading the Robertson girls to a team title this past Friday in the Desert Academy Wildcat Invitational in Santa Fe.

    “Almost got it under 20, in the 19s,” the Robertson freshman said Monday.

    To be exact, Quintana clocked in at 20 minutes and 4.58 seconds, a full 51 ticks faster than runner-up Julie Andreas of Bosque in the 3.01-mile course.
