He finished among the top four in the New Mexico breakaway roping competition and also took part in ribbon roping and team roping this past season. He’s also an honor roll student.

  • West program a summer gem

    Know any kids who complain of summertime boredom, that old gripe that there’s nothing to do?

    The 100 or so youngsters who are participating in the West Las Vegas summer activity program probably aren’t among them.

  • Jaramillo, Griego shine at plate...

    A couple of big efforts by Las Vegas players highlighted the recent North-South softball classic held in Bayard.

    Robertson’s Ashley Jaramillo had a stellar weekend, going 10 for 12 at the plate with five singles, four doubles and one home run. She reached base 13 out of 14 at bats, adding two walks and a reach by error to her hits.  

  • Go Fish - June 14, 2013

    FISHING REPORT, June 11  
    Conchas Lake: Fishing was very good using spinner-nightcrawler combinations, crank baits and grubs for walleye. Fishing was good using jerk baits, tubes, senkos, crank baits and worms for smallmouth bass. Fishing was fair to good using cut bait and homemade dough bait for catfish. Kelly and Steve Lindsay of Conchas Dam caught their limits of walleye while fishing from a paddle boat. North and Bell Campgrounds are open.   
    Coyote Creek: Trout fishing was good using salmon eggs in the beaver pond areas.

  • Walking the line - Cowgirl...

    Conscientious coaches routinely keep track of the student-athletes in their charge, telling them to get to class and admonishing them against slacking on homework.

    For three New Mexico Highlands University women’s basketball coaches, however, the past few years have meant also setting the example by getting to class themselves.

  • Solid season
  • Kryptonite earns split in trip...

    Submitted to the Optic

    The Las Vegas Kryptonite came back from Santa Fe this past weekend with a split.
    The Kryptonite was victorious in game one, winning 12-1 versus the Santa Fe Rockies.

    The Kryptonite bats earned 11 hits in the game shortened due to the 10-run rule. Las Vegas scored first in the top half of the first inning, pushing across two runs. The Rockies responded with a single unearned run in the bottom half of the first.

  • Jauregui scores game-winner

    Robertson’s Miguel Jauregui scored the winning run for the North on Saturday in the decisive game of the Class 1A-3A North-South All-Star baseball weekend in Bayard.

    Jauregui’s run made it a 10-9 win for the North. The South won the first game 25-6, and the North battled back with a 15-10 shootout victory in game two.

    Another Cardinal standout, Ryan Tafoya, took part in the home run derby.

    The North won both baseball and softball series two games to one. West Las Vegas’ Gabrielle Griego won the softball home run derby.
