  • Isotopes retaliate against Storm...

    Last time out was rough for Albuquerque pitcher Zach Jemiola.

    Jemiola gave up nine earned runs on 10 hits and three walks in a truncated start that lasted just four innings, and the Isotopes stumbled to a 14-11 loss to Tacoma.

    This time, Jemiola wasn’t perfect, but he was efficient. He scattered 10 hits and only one walk over six complete innings, allowing just one run on Wednesday night in the Isotopes’ 13-1 win over Omaha at Isotopes Park.

  • Area coaches honored

    Both RHS boys’ and girls’ teams won the Class 1A-4A state team tennis championships this past May in Albuquerque.

    The girls’ squad has won four in a row dating back to spring 2014, and the boys have won two state titles in the last three years.

  • Little League: La Plaza juniors...

    In the end, La Plaza juniors baseball simply ran out of at-bats.

    North Valley’s All-stars edged La Plaza 5-4 In the playback bracket Saturday night in Carlsbad, eliminating the Las Vegas-based team from the state tournament. La Plaza provided fans with plenty of edge-of-the-seat excitement through much of its run through the tournament.

    Friday, the team edged Roadrunner 2-1 to advance to the semifinals. But a loss to the hometown Shorthorn on Saturday evening forced La Plaza to play immediately thereafter in an elimination game.

    The Senior Olympics state competitions, for most sports, took place over the weekend in Albuquerque at various venues. Nine athletes from the Las Vegas-area were among those who captured medals.

    A count of 1,147 total athletes participated in the Summer Games, according to Julio Acosta, a New Mexico Senior Olympics statistician based in Roswell.
