  • Isotopes reach All-Star break

    If his recent performance is any indication, Cristhian Adames could have a huge day when the Pacific Coast League All-Star game is played this Wednesday in Omaha, Neb.

    The Albuquerque Isotopes infielder is on a tear, having hit safely in 14 straight games — and 19 of the last 20 — going into Saturday’s twinbill at El Paso. In 11 of those games, he’s recorded more than one hit.

  • Run to benefit Pecos XC

    Area runners and walkers are invited to take part in a benefit run and walk Saturday, July 18, in Glorieta. The event will benefit the Pecos cross country programs.

  • LVLL sweeps in district softball

    Meadow City Little Leaguers brought home a second wave of District 4 championships — including a sweep of three softball titles by Las Vegas — this week after successful runs in Taos.

    Las Vegas Little League won the 9-10, 10-11 and 11-12 softball tournaments to earn trips to state later this month.

    They join La Plaza’s 13-14 softball team and Mora’s 13-14 baseball team, who punched their respective state tickets last weekend by winning district.

  • Fiesta Run - Hundreds take part...

    Nearly 300 competitors took part in the annual Las Vegas Fiesta Memorial Run this past Sunday morning in town.

    While most of the runners and walkers hailed from Las Vegas and the surrounding area, others came from as far away as Alexandria, Va., Philadelphia, Watertown, N.Y., and Santa Cruz, Calif. Ages ranged from infants — pushed along the course in strollers — to 81-year-old Theodore Rogers in the 10-kilometer run and 76-year-old Carol Winkel in the 5K run. Several runners as young as 8 braved the adult courses.

  • Caillouet keeps on hitting for LV

    Jordan Caillouet’s hot baseball bat didn’t cool on the trek from Garden City, Kans., to Santa Rosa.

    The Las Vegas Train Robber infielder hit 5 for 5 with a home run and four runs batted in on Tuesday night in an 18-10 loss to the Triggers.

    Caillouet had hit two homers and two doubles in a 4-for-4 showing Sunday. Monday’s scheduled home game in Las Vegas was cancelled due to rain.

    Ryo Haruyama also homered for Las Vegas on Tuesday in a home game switched to Santa Rosa High’s baseball diamond.

    A day after the United States claimed its third Women’s World Cup title, the party was still going on in Vancouver on Monday.
