  • From Vegas to Puerto Rico to...

    Las Vegan Nicholas Aragon is taking his talents to south Oklahoma.
    Aragon, who graduated from West Las Vegas in May after starring in baseball for both WLV and Robertson, is attending Oklahoma Panhandle State University this fall and playing for the Aggie baseball team.

  • Aragon shines in Florida camp

    Hopefully Robertson senior Luke Aragon didn’t blink in late July.
    If he did, he likely missed what turned out to be an abbreviated summer vacation.
    Aragon spent seven weeks in Bradenton, Fl., in the IMG Sports Academy’s wood bat league, playing alongside some of the better young baseball talent from across the country.
    And this week, just days after returning from Florida, Aragon was to join the Robertson football team as it begins the preseason gauntlet of training.
