    NMHU Sports Information

    A trip to the desert led to some hot performances for the New Mexico Highlands University women’s track and field squad over the weekend.

    The Cowgirls — ranked seventh in the nation — returned home from the Glendale (Ariz.) Last Gasp Invite with nine first-place finishes in the 13 events in which they competed on Friday, April 20.

    After the weekend’s four-game split with visiting Regis, the New Mexico Highlands baseball team fell four games behind first-place Colorado Mesa in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference baseball standings.

    The Cowboys (29-12 overall, 22-10 RMAC) remain the top team in the RMAC Plains Division. They remain tied for second overall with Colorado State-Pueblo, which also lost Sunday.

  • Highlands closes year with wins

    Highlands’ softball team swept host Sunday’s twinbill at Adams State College in Alamosa, Colo., earning a series split and punctuating a much-improved season on a winning streak.  

    The Cowgirls finished 26-28 overall and 18-22 in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference.

    Highlands pounded out 18 hits and took advantage of four Grizzly errors in winning Sunday’s first game 16-7. Then the Cowgirls clamped down on defense to prevail 6-1.

  • Cards, Dons go deep — again

    Saturday’s baseball doubleheader between Robertson and host West Las Vegas had a little something for everyone — including a win for each side.

    In the opener, Robertson earned its third straight one-run-margin win over the crosstown rival Dons, 8-7.

    The Cardinals bombarded West hurler Jose Juan Montaño and exploited a couple of errors to grab a 5-0 lead after the first half inning. Ryan Tafoya hit a grand slam to left and Nate Archuleta later drove in another run.

  • Tennis season winds down

    Amadeo Lopez of West Las Vegas scored perhaps the upset of the weekend in one of the most competitive battles this tennis season, edging Robertson’s David Romero III in the boys’ singles final of the pre-district tournament.

    The pre-district tourney serves largely to determine seeding for the district tournament, which will be held in Taos this Friday and Saturday.

  • More make state at Meadow City...

    Chilly conditions — with brisk winds and a few sprinkles of rain for good measure — couldn’t hamper the mood at this past Thursday’s Meadow City Invitational. Several more athletes qualified for the state track and field meet in spite of the weather.

    Local teams placed in the top three in both boys’ and girls’ competition.
