  • Guard play boosts Lady Dons vs....

    Cameron Sandoval scored her team’s last six points — including a 4-for-6 stretch at the foul line — as West Las Vegas held off a scrappy Clayton bunch 59-54 on Thursday night at Gillie Lopez Gym.

    The Lady Dons improved to 8-3 going into Saturday’s home game against Hot Springs. Clayton slipped to 6-5.

    The narrow victory was a valuable test for a young Lady Dons team still learning how to close out games. Two nights earlier, they had led much of the way against undefeated and No. 3 ranked Moriarty only to lose in overtime.

  • Pecos wins big in NRG

    Winning by its most lopsided margin yet this season, the Pecos boys’ basketball team opened the Northern Rio Grande tournament by spanking Questa 86-11 on Thursday in Jacona.

    The Panthers’ high-octane offense was matched only by its stingy defense in the first period, when they raced to a 33-1 lead.

    It was 44-1 before the Wildcats broke through for their first field goal. And it was 54-3 at halftime.

  • Welcome back: After more than a...

    It took place on Sandia Prep’s gymnasium floor two hours down the interstate in Albuquerque.

    But make no mistake about it — Thursday night was homecoming for Brianna “Bree” Roybal.

    The Robertson senior made her eagerly awaited return to the lineup for the Lady Cardinal basketball team after more than a year out of action due to injury.

    And it was all that a homecoming should be.

    The school is offering free admission for NMHU men’s and women’s basketball doubleheaders on both Friday and Saturday evenings at the Wilson Complex.

  • Lady Dons push unbeaten Moriarty...

    Moriarty’s girls’ basketball team remained undefeated Tuesday night, picking up its 11th win, 53-50, in overtime at West Las Vegas.

    It was the closest anyone has come to beating the Pintos this season, except for Class 5A Belen, which lost by a point to Moriarty on Dec. 5.
    Kailei Edwards buried a 3-pointer from the right wing with 10 seconds left in what ended up as the game-winning shot.

    Alyssa Adams scored 16 points and Emerald Russell 10 for the Pintos (11-0).

  • Home at last: Wrestlers in town...

    The Robertson wrestling team won a pair of duals Wednesday at McFarland Hall, beating crosstown foe West Las Vegas 51-6 and Trinidad (Colo.) 36-27 in a triangular.

    Trinidad topped the shorthanded Dons, 60-22.
    It was the first time this wrestling season that the locals had been home for a competition, and the fans turned out to support the efforts.
    RHS head coach James Mark Martinez and WLV’s Juan Montaño both said they were glad to have the chance to wrestle in town.
