    NMHU Sports Information

    Collins Kurui captured his third consecutive individual championship over the weekend with a win in the Buffalo Stampede hosted by West Texas A&M in Canyon, Texas.

    Kurui (25:21) led a 1-2-3 sweep for the New Mexico Highlands men, who earned a second-place team finish behind Eastern New Mexico.

  • Right on track - Redbirds...

    On Wednesday night, Robertson head football coach Leroy Gonzalez shared video — shot during a recent practice — of Connor Houdek booting a 55-yard field goal, splitting the uprights right down the middle.

    Maybe if the Cardinals opt for such long-range kicks instead of touchdowns Friday night, their homecoming game with Santa Fe Indian will take the full scheduled 48 minutes.


  • Lady Cards down Pojo in three

    Refusing to give up even one set, the No. 4 Robertson volleyball team scored an important sweep of No. 3 Pojoaque Valley (11-5, 3-1) on Tuesday night at Mike Marr Gym.

    Game scores were 27-25, 25-23, 25-16, in a duel of top-five squads.

    Brandelyn Fulgenzi (10 kills), Alianza Darley (8), Jazmyne Jenkins (7) and Rachele Portillo (3) were active on the attack for the Lady Cardinals, who improved to 10-5 overall and 3-0 in District 2-4A.

  • Outlaws win two on road

    Devaughn Kensey scored three touchdowns to lead the 7-8 Las Vegas Outlaws youth football team to a 19-0 win over the Santa Fe Broncos this past weekend.

    The 7-8 team improved to 4-2 in the Northern New Mexico Children’s Football League standings.

    C.J. Perea accounted for four TDs in leading the 9-10 Outlaws past the Estancia Bears, 25-0.

    Perea connected with Zeke Villegas and Josh Martinez through the air for one touchdown each and ran for two more. Villegas added an extra point.

    The 9-10 Outlaws are 7-0.

  • Robertson spikes Portales

    Brandelyn Fulgenzi has battled injury this fall, but the Robertson volleyball player looked all too healthy for Portales’ liking on Saturday evening.

    Fulgenzi riddled the Rams’ defense with a match-high 25 kills    on a .371 attack percentage as the Lady Cardinals (9-5) won in four sets at Mike Marr Gym.

    Game scores were 14-25, 25-21, 25-12, 27-25.

    Portales, whose long volleyball history against Robertson includes a state championship match victory back in 2007, opened this encounter by taking the first set.

  • Kickers split with Taos

    T.J. Trujillo picked up another hat trick Saturday, and it came at a perfect time — a critical district soccer match with a tough Taos bunch.

    Robertson’s boys edged the visiting Tigers 3-2 to improve to 6-8-1 overall and 4-3 in a loaded District 2.

    Earlier this fall, Taos had won 4-1 on its home field.

    But the Cardinals found a way to take the rematch without key playmakers Tonati Aparicio-Blythe and Brandon Larrañaga.

  • Rocky homecoming for Cowboys

    Despite turning in one of the better offensive efforts of the Jeff Mills era, the young New Mexico Highlands football team couldn’t match the explosive output of South Dakota School of Mines & Technology on Saturday at Perkins Stadium.

    The visiting Hardrockers (5-1 overall, 4-1 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference) piled up 536 yards of offense, spoiling Highlands’ homecoming game 44-17.

    The Cowboys fell to 0-6 and 0-5 as they hit the road again for a game at Chadron State.
