  • Top-ranked Redbirds, No. 5 Dons...

    For Jeremiah Gouin’s return to Cardinal Stadium on Friday night, the former Robertson and West Las Vegas athlete enjoyed arguably the best seat in the house.

    He led the Cardinals onto the field, riding the wheelchair he’s employed while rehabbing from the spinal cord injury he sustained in a rodeo accident this past May.

    Gouin’s dramatic entrance helped inspire a lopsided Cardinal victory on homecoming night. The Redbirds (7-0) blew out Santa Fe Indian 55-0, the game stopped with 5:59 left in the third quarter.

  • Round 1 goes to Lady Cardinals

    Brandelyn Fulgenzi and Alianza Darley connected on 11 kills apiece to lead Robertson to a three-game sweep of crosstown rival West Las Vegas on Saturday afternoon at Mike Marr Gym.

    Game scores were 25-20, 25-23, 25-10.

    West led early in game one and also started the third set with a lead, but ultimately couldn’t hold off a relentless charge from the Lady Cardinals’ potent front line.

    Jaci Fulgenzi’s defense (team-high 31 digs) was especially sharp and got the Lady Cards rolling on multiple occasions.

  • Hole-in-one nets area man $10K

    The decision to participate in a benefit golf tournament for Las Vegas City Schools’ athletic department proved especially profitable for one area man.

    Burt Bazan cashed in by sinking a hole-in-one on Hole No. 9 at the Gene Torres Golf Course during Saturday’s tournament.

    The ace brought a prize of $10,000 as advertised.

    Juan Carlos Fulgenzi said the prize was made possible by an insurance policy for such contests.

  • Tough weekend for Highlands

    The road proved no kinder to New Mexico Highlands’ hard-luck football team, which lost 73-0 at Chadron State this past Saturday.

    NMHU struggled to contain the Eagles’ ground game (441 net yards), as Stevann Brown, Kevin Coy Derek Jackson and Cody Paul ran for two touchdowns apiece. Paul added a 70-yard punt return score for the final points with 2:22 left.

    The Cowboys (0-7) were held to one third-down conversion in 17 attempts.

    Three of Highlands’ remaining four games are at Perkins Stadium.


  • Cards win 2 on road

    T.J. Trujillo scored twice, fellow sophomore Carter Conkle and eighth grader Joel Curtis once apiece to push Robertson past Questa 4-1 in a Saturday road game.

    The Cardinals (8-9-1, 6-4) led 3-0 at halftime.

    The win followed a gritty 4-3 triumph after two overtimes at Pojoaque Valley on Thursday.

    Trujillo scored four times, including a winner.

    Robertson boys’ and girls’ teams close the regular season this coming week with home contests against district foes St. Michael’s (Thursday) and Santa Fe Prep (Saturday).

  • Rio run gives state preview

    Miguel Coca got a good look at his main competition for the Class 4A boys’ state cross country championship — not to mention that race’s course and a host of New Mexico’s premier runners — on Saturday morning in Rio Rancho.

  • Friday night football: Cards,...

    Las Vegas' prep football teams remain unbeaten in District 2-4A after dispatching a pair of visiting rivals Friday night. 

    No. 1 ranked Robertson shut out Santa Fe Indian 55-0 to win its homecoming game midway through the third quarter at Cardinal Stadium. 

    Across town, No. 5 West Las Vegas routed Bernalillo 58-7 with 4:53 on the clock in the third at the Herrera Complex. 

    The twin mercy-rule wins elevate the Cardinals to 7-0 and the Dons to 6-1.

  • Respect - Cowboys picked fourth...

    NMHU Sports Information

    The Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference men’s basketball coaches announced their preseason rankings and preseason All-RMAC team. New Mexico Highlands’ Cowboys team is picked to finish fourth out of 15 teams in this upcoming 2016-17 season.

    “I’ve never been too concerned with the impact of preseason polls because there are so many unknowns going into a new season,” said NMHU head coach Craig Snow.
