  • Net Gains - Bustos and WLV...

    Caelin Bustos was admittedly ambivalent — at least at first — about the prospect of making the Class 2A-3A North All-Stars in volleyball.

    The untimely death of her mother (and her head coach at West Las Vegas), Mary Bustos, changed her perspective a bit.

  • Bradley learned lessons from...

    Even the most trying of seasons can  bring valuable rewards — though they may not be the type of rewards measured in the win column or marked by any tangible trophy.

    Abbey Bradley has learned this first hand.

    The Robertson senior inherited her volleyball team’s primary on-court leadership role this past offseason. As the veteran presence amid a team of less experienced players, Bradley had to step up in a different role with a different dynamic than any she’d experienced before.

  • RHS coach on late WLV...

    On this Thanksgiving holiday, Judith Trujillo says she is grateful for the opportunity to have learned from Mary Bustos.

    Even if Bustos’ Lady Dons didn’t give up a set to Trujillo’s Lady Cardinals on the volleyball court this fall.

    Trujillo said her players, faced with their impromptu matchup against West Las Vegas in the first round of the state tournament just hours removed from the loss of Bustos, wondered aloud how to approach the match.

  • The Perfect Storm - Robertson...

    Breaking a win streak that had reached 23 games, the Robertson Cardinals stunned No. 1 St. Michael’s 22-13 on a frigid Saturday afternoon at Christian Brothers Athletic Complex in Santa Fe.

    Robertson’s ouster of the defending state champions set up a trip to Taos in the Class 3A state football semifinals this coming weekend.

  • NMHU runners 24th at nationals

    Boasting the first lineup consisting entirely of native New Mexicans ever to qualify for nationals, the New Mexico Highlands University men’s cross country team finished 24th of 32 schools in Saturday’s NCAA Division II national championships held in Spokane, Wash.

    The Cowboys landed two runners in the top 100 — Mora native Henrique Chavez and Rio Rancho’s Jesus Mendoza.

    Chavez, a senior All-Regional competitor in his final collegiate event, finished 88th in 32:03.9. Mendoza ran close behind, clocking a 32:13.1 to finish 98th.

  • Carr burns Lobos for 527 yards,...

    The Associated Press

    FRESNO, Calif. — With the running game grounded because of injuries to its two leading rushers, New Mexico had no chance of keeping up with Derek Carr and Fresno State.

    Carr threw for 527 yards and a school-record seven touchdowns in his final regular-season home game to help the Bulldogs clinch a spot in the Mountain West title game with a 69-28 victory over New Mexico on Saturday.
