  • Lady Cards 4th in state softball...

    Two losses to Hope Christian doomed the Robertson Lady Cardinals in their quest for a state softball championship this past week in Rio Rancho.

    But they came tantalizingly close to the championship round, and that has them already looking forward to next season.

    Robertson made a deep run that ended in the playback bracket of the Class 3A state tournament; a 10-3 loss to Hope eliminated the Lady Cardinals on Friday afternoon.

    GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — New Mexico Highlands rallied from 8-2 down with seven straight runs, but Tarleton State came back with one in the ninth and four in the 10th, and the Texans went on to win 13-9 in the second round of the NCAA South Central Regional on Friday in Grand Junction, Colo.

    Senior Jordan Goliat, in his final game for the Cowboys, led off the bottom of the first with a blast to right for his second round-tripper of the season. Who knew it was a foreshadowing of things to come?

  • Gurule state champ in javelin

    West Las Vegas sophomore Nicholas Gurule earned a state championship in the javelin, recording a winning throw of 161 feet, 8 inches, on Saturday at the University of New Mexico track and soccer complex in Albuquerque.

    Gurule has led Class 3A most of the spring in the event, and his best throw won by 5 feet, 3 inches, over Bloomfield senior Bobby Lyon.

    Going into the weekend, Gurule was among the favorites. His chief competition had been from WLV teammate Salvador Lopez, a junior. But Lopez recorded a no-decision.

  • CHAMPIONS! Robertson girls’...

    Having won state as a player a few years back, Roman Fulgenzi got to experience the championship glory from a coach’s perspective this past week.

    Robertson’s girls’ tennis team rose to the occasion in capturing the program’s second Class 1A-3A state championship, the first having come in 2011 under the direction of Juan Carlos Fulgenzi, who also helped his younger brother coach this group. In doing so, the Lady Cardinals upset No. 1 seed Bosque, which had swept Taos and Hope Christian en route to the final.

  • Quintana 4th in state golf...

    West Las Vegas’ Joedy Quintana finished fourth in the state golf tournament for Class 1A-3A girls on Tuesday after making a strong surge on the second day of the event, held at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces.

    Quintana tied for fourth with a two-day total of 160. She was in eighth place at the end of the day Monday, having shot an 82. But she came back with a round of 78 — the fourth-best overall on Tuesday — to tie Mia Salome of Socorro for fourth place in the tourney.
