  • Grant national long jump champ

    New Mexico Highlands University’s Jillisa Grant added the indoor national championship to her 2011 outdoor win in the long jump with a record-setting performance this past Friday afternoon in Mankato, Minn.

    Grant broke the longest-standing women’s indoor record in NCAA Division II with a leap of 6.26 meters (20-6) to erase Norfolk State’s Chandra Sturrup’s mark of 6.24 meters set in 1995.

  • A Trojan epic

    ALBUQUERQUE — Before Friday, the last time a Wagon Mound boys’ basketball team hoisted a state championship trophy, the Four Seasons were topping the pop charts with their ode to “December 1963 (Oh What A Night).”

    On Friday, the Trojans and longtime coach Bobby Clouthier might have been inspired to sing their own version of that happy tune.

  • Cards just shy against St. Mike’s

    ALBUQUERQUE — Justin Bustos launched his jump shot, this one from three-point territory on the far right corner, and watched it arc high in the air like so many thousands of others he’d put up over the years. The ball rotated rhythmically and sliced crisply into the middle of the hoop, pulling the nylon strings slightly taut. Nearby, a referee extended both arms to signal a three-point basket.

    The buzzer sounded on the hallowed floor of The Pit.

  • Rangerettes fall in semis

    A valiant 28-point, 14-rebound effort by Andrea Romero and a spirited comeback by the Mora Rangerettes weren’t enough to get them past defending state champion Navajo Pine in the Class 2A girls’ state tournament semifinals this past Thursday at the Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho.

    Navajo Pine, the No. 6 seed and eventual state runner-up, outscored Mora 6-3 in overtime to pull off a 46-43 win, ending a historic Rangerettes season that saw them set a new school record for wins with 28 (with just three losses).

  • Colts, Manning go separate ways

    INDIANAPOLIS — Peyton Manning is getting an early glimpse into life as a free agent.

    Hours after a tearful, trying farewell news conference in Indianapolis, Manning flew back to his home in Miami and was immediately peppered with questions about his next landing spot. He’d better get used to it. The scene is likely to play out at every destination he visits until he decides where to play next season.

  • Cards make Final Four

    Justin Bustos shredded the Shiprock Chieftains for three dozen points — including a whopping 16 in the first quarter alone — and led Robertson to a 95-63 triumph over Shiprock on Wednesday night at the Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho.
