  • Girls dig into basketball...

    West Las Vegas girls’ basketball bounced back from its first loss by beating foes from Arizona and Utah in this past weekend’s Shiprock tournament.

    Farmington, out of Class 5A, defeated West 66-45 in Thursday’s opener. But the Lady Dons got back on track the next day, using a hot start — with 24 points in the first quarter — to rout Red Mesa (Ariz.) 66-41.

    Then on Saturday, West dominated each quarter en route to a 54-21 verdict over San Juan (Utah).

  • Heartbreak in Hatch

    HATCH, NM — “Heartbreak.”

    Asked to sum up the experience as Robertson concluded its 2015 football season with a 17-7 defeat at Hatch Valley in the Class 4A state championship game on Saturday, Cardinal co-captain Estevan Varela didn’t mince words.

    “Heartbreak,” he repeated.

    And he could, or would, say no more at the moment, trudging off the field, his head down.

  • Birds vs. Bears: A breakdown

    A drive-by-drive breakdown of Saturday’s Class 4A state football championship:

    • Hatch picked up one first down on the game-opening series, as quarterback Jared Garay swept around right tackle for a gain up the sideline. A sack by Estevan Varela near midfield on third and long forced a Bear punt.

  • NMHU takes on WNMU

    Jonathon Mines and Ron Lawton were seeing 20-20 on Saturday, and it gave New Mexico Highlands’ men’s basketball what it had been looking for — a big win to open conference play.

    Mines hit four from long range on his way to 20 points to go with 10 rebounds and four assists as NMHU won 84-64 against visiting Western New Mexico (0-6, 0-1 RMAC).

  • BREAKING : Robertson falls to...
  • BREAKING: Robertson trails Hatch...

    HATCH, NM -- After a defense-dominated 24 minutes, Hatch Valley leads Robertson 3-0 at intermission in the Class 4A state football championship game. The Bears broke a scoreless stalemate with a 24-yard field goal with 7 seconds left in the second quarter. 

  • Cardinal fans converge in Hatch

    HATCH, NM -- A large handmade banner at the entrance to the Hatch Valley campus warns visitors they're entering Bear Country. Get beyond the bear tracks a couple hundred yards, however, and you find yourself in the middle of maybe a couple hundred Robertson High fans adorned in red and black Cardinal gear, their vehicles shoe-polished with GO CARDS and TAKE STATE.

  • Mora, Pecos tip off year

    Las Vegas Optic
