  • Holiday Stu: Spartans look like...

    “Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I’m 64”
    — The Beatles

    The 64th annual Stu Clark Tournament tips off at 1 p.m. Thursday at the Wilson Complex, bringing a hearty helping of holiday hoops to the Meadow City.

    A full-tournament pass can be had for $15; alternately, individual session tickets will be sold for $5 ($3 children younger than 6) at the door.

    The tourney runs through Saturday evening.

  • Tri-Cities on tap in Santa Rosa

    Two of the top three boys’ basketball teams in Class 3A could be on a collision course in this weekend’s annual Tri-Cities Tournament in Santa Rosa.

    Pecos (6-2), No. 2 in the classification, plays Mesa Vista at 4 p.m. Thursday on day one of the tourney.

    By The Associated Press

    HONOLULU — Bennie Boatwright drained a long 3-pointer with 4.1 seconds left and Southern California held off New Mexico State 77-72 in the title game of the Diamond Head Classic Monday.

    The Trojans (9-4) won the tournament for the second time in program history with their third consecutive win. They also won the inaugural tournament in 2009.

  • Cards cage Lions

    Robertson seniors Arjay Ortiz and Ishmael Martinez combined for 35 points and Emiliano Berged was a force on the boards as the Cardinals caged the Santa Rosa Lions 54-42 on Thursday night at Mike Marr Gym.

    The win was big for a Cardinal squad seeking positive momentum going into this coming week’s Stu Clark Tournament, and it came against last year’s Class 3A state runner-up.

  • Six locals on North football...

    Six Meadow City football players have been selected to help represent the North in the annual Class 3A-4A North-South football game this June in Albuquerque.

    Darian Duran, Arjay Ortiz and Brooks Pavlic of Robertson, along with Gabriel Duran, Steven Sandoval and Cassius Trujillo of West Las Vegas, were among those named to the North roster this week by the New Mexico High School Coaches Association.

  • All-state volleyball splash

    One more set of accolades arrived like a Christmas present for the Robertson volleyball program, which made it to the Class 4A state championship match a second year in a row this past November.

    Four Lady Cardinals — Alianza Darley, Brandelyn Fulgenzi, Lauren Fulgenzi and Ashlea Lujan — were named all-state players by the New Mexico High School Coaches Association this week.

  • Dons, Panthers triumph; Cards...

    The Mora Rangers, playing at West Las Vegas on Tuesday night, performed just well enough so that one run could decide the game.

    Thanks to a stretch of effective defense in the fourth quarter, the Dons ensured that run was theirs.

    West’s solid finish clinched a 70-61 win in front of a good bipartisan crowd at Gillie Lopez Gym. After an 18-9 run in the opening quarter, the Dons stayed in control and led by as many as 14.

  • Trujillo brothers prevail in...

    Jonathan Trujillo, one of Robertson’s wrestlers who won individual state championships last season, took just 17 seconds to pin one of his four victims this past Saturday. Trujillo went on to win his 138-pound weight class and help propel the Cardinals to a fifth-place team finish in the Rattler Invitational hosted by Tucumcari High.

    Younger brother Andrew, another state champ in 2017, also placed first Saturday, while teammate Tristan Trujillo, yet another Cardinal grappler with state championship credentials, came away with a runner-up finish.
