  • Hoops in the valley - Lady Dons...

    Ten Lady Dons scored at least two points apiece — seven players in the opening quarter — as West Las Vegas routed Bernalillo 74-26 on Tuesday night.

    The game was held at Valley Middle School’s Griego Gym, part of what has become an annual occurrence.

  • Junior Hackers hitting stride

    Together as a team for only a year and a half, the Las Vegas Junior Hackers 14-and-under travel baseball squad recently captured the gold first-place trophy at the Toys for Tots tournament in Carlsbad.

    The championship rounded out a productive autumn for the Hackers, who placed second in similar USSSA events in Amarillo and El Paso. They also competed in an Albuquerque tournament, although they did not place.

    The team is coached by Roy Pacheco, who said he’s “amazed” by how well the players have progressed in a limited time together.

  • Bowls galore

    By Ralph D. Russo

    Every bowl game is special in its own way and for the third straight year we are here with a reason to watch each and every one. And to pick the winners, which may also provide a reason to watch. Strictly for entertainment purposes, of course. (Part two of a series.)

  • RHS girls stun No. 1 Hope

    Overcoming a 12-point deficit early in the final quarter, Robertson rallied for a 52-50 upset of No. 1 Hope Christian on Saturday night at Mike Marr Gym.

    The Lady Cards snapped Hope’s 18-game winning streak dating back to Jan. 14. The Huskies, who won the Class 4A state championship this past March, had started this season on a 7-0 tear.

  • Dons doom Demons in OT thriller

    Falling backward, West Las Vegas freshman John Balizan tossed up a wish of a three-point shot as the buzzer sounded to end regulation.

    Balizan was on his back near the far right corner when the basketball flicked neatly through nylon.

    Basket good. On to overtime we go.

    And then the host Dons made that heroic shot stand for something, outscoring Class 6A Santa Fe High 11-2 in overtime to win 58-49 before a pumped-up Gillie Lopez Gym this past Saturday night.

  • Panther power - Pecos-Mora final...

    Joshua DeHerrera scored a team-high 25 points late Saturday to lead Pecos over Mora 80-69 in the boys’ championship game of the Ben Lujan Invitational in Jacona.

    The longtime regional rivals, who occupied the same district until being separated by reclassification a few years back, have renewed their rivalry with several head-to-head meetings in recent tournament finals. In 2015-16, they clashed three times, twice for trophies, with Mora — an eventual Class 2A runner-up — taking all three.

  • Cowboys pick up two league...

    Ron Lawton scored a combined 55 points in two games — both Cowboy wins — as New Mexico Highlands got into the win column for the first time this season in Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference play.

    The Cowboys defeated Western State on Friday and then Colorado Mesa on Saturday, improving to 4-7 overall and 2-4 in the RMAC.

    Lawton made 10 of 14 field goals Friday as NMHU edged WSC 90-84 at the Wilson Complex. Atem Bior scored 21.

    Lawton and James Healy combined to sink five of six foul shots in the final minute to hold off the Mountaineers.
