  • BREAKING: Pecos boys state track...

    The Pecos Panthers are 2016 Class 3A state track and field champions.

    And it wasn't that close.

    Pecos amassed 64 team points, besting second-place Estancia (47). Dexter, Capitan, Santa Rosa and Native American Community Academy rounded out the top six.

    The Panthers racked up big points in their bread and butter, distance running events, but added several strong finishes elsewhere. 

    The small-school meet was hosted Friday and Saturday at UNM Track and Soccer Complex in Albuquerque. 

  • BREAKING: Robertson sluggers...

    Pitcher Brandon Lucero stranded six baserunners -- escaping one bases-loaded jam -- and the Robertson baseball team defeated St. Michael's 2-0 in game one of their best-of-three first-round state playoff series Friday in Las Vegas. 

    The No. 5 seeded Cardinals can advance to the quarterfinals with a win Saturday. First pitch is set for 11 a.m. at Memorial Middle School.

    Robertson scored both of its runs on RBI groundouts. Austen King drove in the first run, plating J.R. Gonzalez, who'd led off the bottom of the first with a single. 

  • All in the family

    ALBUQUERQUE — Warren Fulgenzi Jr. shook off a shaky start and got on a roll to capture his second consecutive Class 1A-4A boys’ singles championship Thursday evening at Jerry Cline Complex.

    Fulgenzi defeated Will McDermott of St. Mike’s, 6-3, 6-0, in the final. The taller, rangier McDermott gave Fulgenzi some anxious moments early on, taking a first game, and it was 3-2 and 4-3 in the first set.

    Much of the issue lay in short service returns by Fulgenzi, but the Horseman’s reach also kept him in volleys longer than most opponents.

  • Topes mark Cinco de Mayo

    ALBUQUERQUE — Everywhere at Isotopes Park on Thursday, there were reminders of Cinco.

    But it was the nueve on the scoreboard in the third inning that loomed largest.

    Sacramento scored nine runs in that frame to hijack the host Isotopes’ celebration of Cinco de Mayo in a 12-6 rout that was a much more lopsided 12-1 until the Topes started chipping away in the bottom of the fourth inning.

  • BREAKING: Fulgenzi repeats in...

    ALBUQUERQUE - -  Warren Fulgenzi Jr. shook off a shaky start and got on a roll to capture his second consecutive Class 1A-4A boys' singles championship Thursday evening at Jerry Cline Complex. 

    Fulgenzi defeated Will McDermott of St. Mike's, 6-3, 6-0, in the final. The taller, rangier McDermott gave Fulgenzi some anxious moments early on, taking a first game, and it was 3-2 at one point in the first set. Much of the issue lay in short service returns by Fulgenzi, but the Horseman's reach also kept him in volleys longer than most opponents. 

  • BREAKING : Robertson duo wins...

    ALBUQUERQUE - -  Sister act Brandelyn and Lauren Fulgenzi are Class 1A-4A state girls' doubles champions.

    The Robertson pair defeated sisters Jaci and Jenese Fulgenzi, their first cousins and RHS teammates, in the final on Thursday afternoon at Jerry Cline Complex. Scores were 6-1, 6-2.

    Warren Fulgenzi Jr. was playing in the boys' singles final, looking for a repeat championship, in Thursday evening action.

    Solid efforts over the course of the year for Robertson boys’ golf will pay off Monday when the Cardinals take on the state tournament.

    The Cards qualified their third and final leg necessary to make the tourney as a team. Play runs Monday and Tuesday at Nancy Lopez Golf Course at Spring River in Roswell.

    RHS is coached by Erwin Baca and Jamie Allen. The boys’ team includes Robert Gallegos, Noah Gonzales, Leon Lujan, Justin Lesperance and Charlie Hillis.

    Rafael Ynoa tripled and went 3 for 5 with one run batted in and two scored to help Albuquerque defeat Sacramento 9-4 on Wednesday night at Isotopes Park.

    Ryan Casteel drove in three runs for the Isotopes and finished 2 of 4. Jordan Patterson went 1 for 2 with two walks and one RBI.

    Albuquerque (16-11 going into Thursday night’s game) trailed 3-1 midway through the fourth inning but scored four in its half, then added two runs in each of the next two frames.

  • Sluggers open state tourneys

    Las Vegas Optic

    In their four previous softball meetings this season — three in regular district play — Robertson has outscored Taos a combined 70-4, winning via mercy rule each time.

    On paper, then, it’s a mismatch for the Lady Cardinals, No. 1 seed in the Class 4A state tournament, in the state opener vs. No. 16 Taos this Saturday at RHS Field.
