  • Free Highlands hoops this weekend

    Basketball fans can catch the New Mexico Highlands hoops teams in action free of charge this coming weekend.

    The school is offering free admission for NMHU men’s and women’s basketball doubleheaders on both Friday and Saturday evenings at the Wilson Complex.

  • Lady Dons push unbeaten Moriarty...

    Moriarty’s girls’ basketball team remained undefeated Tuesday night, picking up its 11th win, 53-50, in overtime at West Las Vegas.

    It was the closest anyone has come to beating the Pintos this season, except for Class 5A Belen, which lost by a point to Moriarty on Dec. 5.
    Kailei Edwards buried a 3-pointer from the right wing with 10 seconds left in what ended up as the game-winning shot.

    Alyssa Adams scored 16 points and Emerald Russell 10 for the Pintos (11-0).

  • Home at last: Wrestlers in town...

    The Robertson wrestling team won a pair of duals Wednesday at McFarland Hall, beating crosstown foe West Las Vegas 51-6 and Trinidad (Colo.) 36-27 in a triangular.

    Trinidad topped the shorthanded Dons, 60-22.
    It was the first time this wrestling season that the locals had been home for a competition, and the fans turned out to support the efforts.
    RHS head coach James Mark Martinez and WLV’s Juan Montaño both said they were glad to have the chance to wrestle in town.

     

  • Free admission to Highlands...

    Basketball fans can catch the New Mexico Highlands hoops teams in action free of charge this coming weekend.

    "We are very thankful for the support we've been given throughout the year and want to show our appreciation to our community," said Highlands interim athletic director Craig Snow, who is also the men's head coach. "This weekend's games will be free of charge, please come out and cheer on the Cowgirls and Cowboys!"

  • Lady Dons just shy of unbeaten...

    Moriarty's girls' basketball team remained undefeated Tuesday night, picking up its 11th win 53-50 in overtime at West Las Vegas.

    It was the closest anyone has come to beating the Pintos this season, except for Class 5A Belen, which lost by a point to Moriarty on Dec. 5.

    Kailei Edwards buried a 3-pointer from the right wing with 10 seconds left in what ended up as the game-winning shot. Alyssa Adams scored 16 points and Emerald Russell 10 for the Pintos (11-0).

    S-E-C! S-E-C!

    Alabama and Georgia won their College Football Playoff semifinals on Monday and will meet in the national championship next week in Atlanta, the home of the Southeastern Conference title game.

  • Spartan conditions: Bernalillo...

    Inside and out, Bernalillo emerged as the class of the 64th annual Stu Clark Tournament, held this past weekend at Highlands’ Wilson Complex.

    Luis Villegas swished three of his four 3-point baskets in the opening quarter while the combination of 6-7 Solomon Fragua and 6-4 Mariano Lobato provided a matchup nightmare in the Spartans’ 71-63 win over Robertson in Saturday night’s championship game.

  • Prep roundup: Panthers down...

    Four Panthers reached double figures in Pecos’ 62-52 triumph over host Santa Rosa to win this past weekend’s Tri-Cities Tournament.

    It was a rematch of this past March’s Class 3A state final, also won by Pecos.

    Pecos (9-2), got 15 points from Mario Archuleta, 13 from Anthony Armijo, and 11 apiece from Carlos Cordova and Omar Dominguez. The Lions were led by Stephen Sanchez (18) and Cody Schnattsneider (11).

    Mora’s boys passed a good test from McCurdy, pulling out a 74-71 win in the third-place game.

  • Highlands' men win third...

    New Mexico Highlands’ Nmmadi Okoro piled up 25 points and 13 rebounds as the Cowboys beat South Dakota School of Mines and Technology 75-67 on Saturday in Rapid City, S.D.

    The Cowboys have won three straight games and four of their last five — all on the road.

    Okoro shot 12 for 18 in collecting the double-double. Jacob Holland (18 points, four assists) and Mike Nwabuzor (20 points, including an 8-of-11 showing at the foul line) delivered out of the Highlands backcourt.
