  • Back in business

    After crashing to earth in a doubleheader defeat to visiting Portales this past weekend, the Robertson softball team was looking for a bounce-back game.

    They got it.

    The Lady Cardinals (17-3) overcame a 2-1 deficit to beat West Las Vegas 9-2 on Tuesday afternoon at WLV Field.

    It was the third RHS win in as many head-to-head meetings between the local schools this season. West is 9-11 overall.

    Ashlea Lujan, who reached on a walk, scored on a wild pitch to stake Robertson to a 1-0 lead in the top of the first.

  • Vatos fall in regional final

    New Mexico Highlands’ pursuit of a national championship in small-college rugby came to a halt in the regional final this past weekend in Vallejo, Calif.

    The Vatos reached the Elite Eight but lost to national playoff veteran Claremont Colleges 37-22 in the PacWest Region championship on Sunday.

  • Topes get even with Tacoma

    Las Vegas Optic

    Chris Nelson launched a solo home run in the fourth inning to give Albuquerque an 11-3 advantage en route to an 11-6 win Monday against visiting Tacoma at Isotopes Park.

    The Isotopes, who evened their season record at 6-6, did most of the damage in the bottom of the second, when they bullied Rainiers staring pitcher Joe Wieland for seven runs.

    Nelson finished 4 for 4 with four runs batted in and two runs scored.

  • Portales tees off at Vegas’...

    Las Vegas Optic

    Portales has officially joined the conversation as to who is the best Class 4A softball team in New Mexico.

    With road sweeps of West Las Vegas and No. 1 Robertson over the weekend, the Lady Rams improved their record to 14-5 and figured to climb in the polls this week.

    Wendy Baeza, a Portales eighth-grader, was superlative in the pitching circle and recorded all four wins.

    On Friday, the Lady Rams defeated West 13-4 and 8-3, ending the Lady Dons’ six-game win streak.

  • Locals dominate Meadow City...

    Local boys won 12 individual events and girls took first in another half dozen to put a hometown stamp on the Meadow City Invitational this past week at Cardinal Stadium.

    Miguel Coca raced to first place in three distance events — the 800, 1,600 and 3,200 — to lead West Las Vegas to its second boys’ team title in less than three weeks. The Dons’ 125 team points positioned them comfortably ahead of St. Michael’s (93), Robertson (73) and Santa Rosa (66) atop the leaderboard.
