  • Grizzlies deal tough shutout

    Adams State managed six shots on goal Sunday afternoon in a defensive gem held in Alamosa, Colo.

    New Mexico Highlands goalkeeper Nikita Rivera stopped five of them.

    Shelby McBain made sure hers was on target.

    McBain’s goal, which came just 7:47 into the match, held up as the game-winner after no other player found the net on either side in a 1-0 tally.

  • MMS sweeps XC titles
  • Cowgirls riding 3-match win...

    She wasn’t playing blackjack, and she was a long way from Vegas — either one — but Darian Mullen’s 21 proved to be a winning number Saturday night.

    Mullen swatted down 21 kills in a whopping 54 attacks with just six errors for a .278 attack percentage, leading New Mexico Highlands to a 3-2 win at Chadron State this past Saturday in Chadron, Neb.

    The victory extended Highlands’ winning streak to three matches, tying the team’s longest.

  • Purple pride (and pain)

    Penalties again stung the  New Mexico Highlands University football team, this time playing a role in a 24-20 loss to Adams State in Saturday night’s homecoming game.

    At 2-5 overall and 1-4 in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference, the Cowboys’ postseason hopes are dashed, although the team had some clear positives Saturday.

    The Highlands offense generated 439 yards, including 339 through the air, and remains a team strength.

  • Vegas represents in Rio Rancho

    The Rio Rancho Cross Country Jamboree is always a red-letter day on the calendar for area runners.

    It’s a huge race that offers the chance to test yourself against many of the best in the state, regardless of classification.

    And it’s on a course you hope to get back to in November, when the state championships are decided.

  • Cards run past Pojo

    Penalty flags galore were flying across the field Friday night in Jacona.

    That was the bad news for the Robertson Cardinals.

    The good news for them is that Dominic Lucero and James Gonzales were doing plenty of flying across the field themselves.

    The Cardinals’ backfield duo combined for more than 300 rushing yards and seven touchdowns to grab the upper hand in a three-hour-and-change 55-39 shootout with Pojoaque Valley.
