  • Boxing in town Saturday

    An evening of amateur boxing that features several local fighters is scheduled for Saturday at Crespin’s Boxing Gym, 900 West Valencia.

    One of the featured bouts pits local Mateo Gold, representing Crespin’s, against Maunice Reyes from Deming Boxing.

    Savanna Trujillo, who also fights representing Crespin’s, will take on an opponent to be announced.

  • Isotopes eye playoffs

    The hottest team in the Pacific Coast League just last week has cooled off in recent days, but the team hoping to catch up hasn’t been able to close much ground.

    The former is the Oklahoma City RedHawks, who lost their fifth consecutive game on the heels of a lengthy win streak to end July.

    The latter is the Albuquerque Isotopes, who on Wednesday lost their second straight to visiting Salt Lake, thus remaining two games behind the RedHawks in the pursuit of the PCL American Southern Division title.

  • Go Fish - August 16, 2013

    FISHING REPORT, Aug. 13  
    Charette Lakes: Due to low water levels only small boats are being launched here and with some difficulty. Trout fishing was fair to good trolling Christmas tree-worm combinations. A few were also caught by anglers using power bait. No reports on perch.
    Cimarron River: Water flow near Cimarron on Monday was 8.9 cfs. Trout fishing was good using parachute adams, zebra midges, elk hair caddis and small stimulators. A few trout have also been taken on salmon eggs.

  • Going the distance - Running 50-...

    For most Las Vegas-area runners, the 10-kilometer race — such as the longest event of the annual Fiesta Memorial Run — represents the ultimate in distance competition.

    (There are exceptions, of course, like members of the New Mexico Highlands cross country teams and the few brave marathon competitors and triathletes out there.)

    But for Katrin Silva, the 10K is a mere warm-up exercise.

  • Ex-Cowboys make NFL debuts

    A couple of former New Mexico Highlands University football standouts saw their first unofficial official action as professionals over the weekend as the NFL began its preseason schedule.

    Jordan Campbell recorded one solo tackle and one tackle assist to help the Cincinnati Bengals defeat the Atlanta Falcons 34-10 on Friday evening. Campbell entered the game and played at middle linebacker early in the fourth quarter. He wrapped up Falcon Ronnie Wingo for a solo stop on a run play and was an active part of the defense.
