  • Abreu, Arguello, Bustos: All-...

    Dalan Abreu — like most of his Robertson football teammates — learned how to labor as a two-way player, getting little rest because his playmaking ability was employed on both offense and defense.

    Abreu’s work on the gridiron paid off by helping the Cardinals win the District 2-3A title and get back to the state playoffs. It also earned him dual all-state recognition from the New Mexico High School Coaches Association.

    LAS VEGAS, Nev. — Boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. is a perfect 42-0 in the ring and has dodged significant jail time several times in domestic violence cases in Las Vegas and Michigan.

    But his courtroom streak came to an end Wednesday when a Las Vegas judge sentenced him to 90 days in jail after he pleaded guilty to a reduced battery domestic violence charge and no contest to two harassment charges.

  • Four Cards in North-South game

    Four Robertson football players have earned selection to the 2012 Class 2A-3A North All-Star Team.

    The North-South football lineups were announced late this past week by the New Mexico High School Coaches Association. The annual 2A-3A North-South football and basketball games, which showcase some of the top outgoing high school seniors in these sports, will be held in July on the campus of New Mexico Highlands University.

    The football game is scheduled to kick off 7 p.m. Saturday, July 14, at Perkins Stadium.
