  • Lady Dons win two state track...

    Jayme Quintana brought an end to her high school athletic career in style Saturday, racing to a Class 3A state championship in the girls’ 800-meter run.

  • West reaches state softball final

    Quick with the sticks and creative on the basepaths, the West Las Vegas softball team has scored three or four runs with one swing of the bat on a few occasions this season. So it’s no reach to say the Lady Dons were a play away from winning the Class 3A state championship this past weekend.

    No. 2 Silver stalled a valiant rally from No. 5 WLV in Saturday’s championship game, then scored the last four unanswered runs to prevail 10-7.

  • Lady Dons will miss seniors

    Las Vegas Optic

    After having made progressively deeper runs into the postseason over the last several years, the West Las Vegas softball team looks to have a bright future.

    But the Lady Dons will undoubtedly miss the seniors they’ll lose to graduation this offseason.

  • Invaders mystify LV

    The Roswell Invaders recorded their fourth win in as many nights over the visiting Las Vegas Train Robbers on Friday for the opening week of Pecos League baseball. The series was to wrap late Saturday before the fledgling Train Robbers team goes north for road series at Trinidad and Raton.

    A 13-run second inning by Roswell fueled a 16-4 rout Friday at Roswell’s Joe Bauman Park.

    Will Walsh hit a solo home run in the third inning to highlight the Robbers’ effort. Chris Wilson went 3 for 4 with a double and two RBI.

  • Double trouble - Mora’s Chavez...

    MORA — When New Mexico Highlands University cross country coach Bob DeVries embarked on a mission to bring Mora standout Alonzo Chavez to the fold, he had help from probably the best recruiter available — Alonzo’s older brother Henrique.

    Henrique Chavez, himself a former state champion distance runner for the Mora Rangers, will be a senior at NMHU this coming fall. He’s emerged over the last couple years as a leader on the Highlands men’s team.
