    PHOENIX — Showtime Shoni had quite the All-Star debut.
    Shoni Schimmel, a rookie who doesn’t even start for her own team, put on a record-breaking performance — scoring 29 points to help the East beat the West 125-124 on Saturday in the first WNBA All-Star game to go to overtime.
    Hitting big shot after big shot in the fourth quarter and overtime, including a behind-the-head flip over 6-foot-8 Brittney Griner, Schimmel gave the fans a great show.

  • Destiny takes a hand - Westgate...

    Westgate pitcher Destiny Garcia pitched one perfect game on Tuesday and was one out away from another in a Wednesday afternoon semifinal vs. Las Vegas in the New Mexico Little League majors (11-12) softball championship tournament.

    But Lettie Vigil finally cracked the code, roping a shot between third and short and then dashing to first.

  • Go Fish - July 18

    Fishing report, July 15
    This fishing report, provided by Bill Dunn and the Department of Game and Fish, has been generated from the best information available from area officers and anglers.

    Charette Lakes: Fishing was good using Power Bait, marshmallows and Pistol Petes tipped with worms. Anglers also did well trolling a worm behind a cow bell attractor. We had no reports on perch.

  • Triggers hold on vs. Vegas

    The Las Vegas Train Robbers dipped to 15-40 after Monday night’s 10-9 squeaker loss at Trinidad.

    Las Vegas began the game in a 3-0 hole because that had been the score when the previous night’s game was rained out at Santa Rosa High School’s baseball field. Pecos League officials canceled the originally scheduled Monday game between Trinidad and Las Vegas and instead had the rivals resume the suspended game, which had just reached the second inning when the storm struck.

  • Lightning strikes TWICE - Las...

    Ripping across the heavens in multiple directions, the lightning bolts struck, near and far, accompanied by the peals of thunder and a persistent rain.

    Only the lightning could delay the seeming inevitability of another state championship for the Las Vegas juniors softball team in a 22-2 deluge that washed away Zia Mile HIgh’s hopes of upsetting the defending champs on Sunday afternoon at New Mexico Highlands University’s Cowgirl Field.
