  • Young Cardinals flying under the...

    Being a tad underrated is nothing new for the Robertson football program.

    Flying under the radar altogether — with pundits salivating over defending state champ Lovington and runner-up St. Michael’s, not to mention a Hope Christian team on the rise — is another matter.

    But with the young group RHS is fielding after the loss of 14 seniors, that’s where these Cardinals find themselves going into Friday night’s opener against Portales (7 p.m. kickoff at Cardinal Stadium).

  • Familiar coach takes helm,...

    Robert Alarcon hopes to have the best of both worlds this fall as he takes the head coaching reins at West Las Vegas.

    Alarcon, a veteran assistant at West who has enjoyed success as head coach at the middle school and YAFL levels, is a familar face to most of his charges. His presence brings a sense of stability and continuity to the program he inherits.

  • Cowboys look to ‘Purple Out’ the...

    A T-shirt giveaway is being used as one incentive to draw fans to Perkins Stadium on Saturday evening for the New Mexico Highlands home football opener against Eastern New Mexico.

    The first 250 fans through the gates will receive a purple NMHU athletics shirt courtesy of Community 1st Bank. The school is pushing a “Purple Out” promotion, encouraging fans to don purple and pack the stadium for the traditional intrastate rivalry game.

    Charette Lakes: No reports from anglers this week.

  • Cowboy harriers picked 5th

    Losing some of the All-American firepower — namely in the form of Nicaise Kazingo — from recent years translated into a slight drop in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference preseason coaches’ poll for New Mexico Highlands University’s men’s cross country program.

    The Cowboys were predicted to finish fifth in the 13-team men’s division, according to the poll, released Thursday, Aug. 23.

    That’s down one spot from where the Cowboys finished the 2011 season; Metro State leapfrogged Highlands for the No. 4 spot.

    In keeping with recent tradition, new Robertson girls’ soccer coach Ian Williamson used an early match with Class 5A Clovis, one of the sturdier programs in the state’s largest classification, as a barometer for the Lady Cardinals’ strength.

    “I’m not disappointed with our score,” Williamson said after the Lady Cards lost 1-0 at Clovis on Saturday afternoon.

  • Four ‘Topes all-league honorees

    Four Albuquerque baseball players — the most of any club in the league — have been selected to the All-Pacific Coast League Team for 2012.

    Ace pitcher John Ely, reliever Josh Wall and position players Jerry Sands and Tim Federowicz were named to the squad, which was announced Monday.

    PCL managers decide on the All-PCL team, along with the league’s MVP, Pitcher of the Year and Manager of the Year — awards expected later in the week.
