  • Kickoff 2014

    No longer in the shadows, the Robertson High football program has emerged as the team to beat on the Class 4A gridiron this fall.

  • Cowgirls tabbed 11th in league

    Las Vegas Optic

    The New Mexico Highlands University volleyball team is projected to finish 11th in the 14-team Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference this fall.

    But with an experienced core returning, supplemented by several talented newcomers, the Cowgirls may have enough depth to make serious progress and prove a few naysayers wrong.

    That’s the plan, anyway, for NMHU head coach Bryan Crawford.

  • Sounds triple up Isotopes

    Clutch hitting made the difference Monday night at The Lab.

    Nashville hit 6 for 11 with runners in scoring position.

    Host Albuquerque was 0 for 11 in that category and lost 9-3 before a reported crowd of 7,207.

    The Triple-A clubs combined for five home runs.Isotope leadoff hitter Mike Baxter went 3 for 4 with a homer and two doubles. He and Joc Pederson hammered back-to-back solo shots in the third inning and helped lift the Topes to a short-lived 3-1 lead.
