    The West Las Vegas boys finished third and the girls eighth out of 10 schools in this past weekend’s Moriarty Invitational track and field meet. The Lady Dons in particular were shorthanded due to spring break, said head coach James Esquibel, but he noted that several of his athletes managed to have a productive outing.

    West’s boys (59 team points) trailed only Clovis (101) and Belen (86.5) in the standings. Of the participating schools, WLV and Estancia were the only ones from Class 4A or smaller.
