  • Fiesta Run draws hundreds

    At the front of the pack for most of Sunday morning’s 5-kilometer race, Miguel Coca crossed the finish line to secure first place. And then he went back the way he had run, trotting up the sidewalk to cheer his friends on their way to the finish line.

    It’s hardly an uncommon practice for participants in the annual Las Vegas Fiesta Run to get in some extra mileage that way. Some who finish relatively early retrace their steps and end up running or walking an additional mile or more, rooting for compatriots farther back in the pack of either the 5K or 10K races.

  • Eight divisions, seven titles

    When Las Vegas Little League’s majors (11-12) baseball team held on to win 16-8 over La Plaza on Thursday afternoon in Santa Rosa, it capped a memorable week on the diamonds for the District 4 tournaments.

  • Next stop: State

    An all-Meadow City theme played out in multiple championship games this week at the District 4 Little League tournaments in Santa Rosa.

    Las Vegas Little League’s 11-12 softball team defeated La Plaza in a competitive 8-5 final on Wednesday to win that division championship.

    Las Vegas also beat La Plaza in the 8-10 softball championship game, taking an 8-3 victory as ace Taylor Quintana finished a three-game run with 41 total strikeouts.

    But the west-siders broke through on the baseball diamond.

  • Grizzlies clinch series win...

    Well, Ryan McMahon was brilliant, going 4-for-4 with a home run.

    But Fresno continued to confound the visiting Albuquerque Isotopes this week, taking an 8-5 verdict Wednesday night for its third win in as many days in the series.

    Albuquerque (38-40) plays at Tacoma Friday through Monday, returning for Tuesday night’s Fourth of July game vs. Sacramento.

    McMahon’s single scored Rosell Herrera in the top of the first inning.
