  • Keep on ‘keepin’ on
  • Cowboys run out of time again

    Just a tantalizing 15 yards away from the Western State end zone, what would’ve been a game-winning drive by New Mexico Highlands was denied on Saturday afternoon, and the host Mountaineers held on for a 33-27 upset in Gunnison, Colo.

    Highlands dropped to 2-4 overall and 1-3 in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference. The Mountaineers picked up their first win of the season, climbing to 1-4 and 1-2.

    The Cowboys host a homecoming game vs. Adams State on Saturday evening at Perkins Stadium.

  • Cowgirls go pink - NMHU women’s...

    SANTA FE — The New Mexico Highlands University women’s basketball team spent its Saturday morning volunteering at the 2013 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event in Santa Fe.  

    The Cowgirls, led by head coach Tiffany Darling, have made a habit of giving back to the community by taking part in service projects.  

  • Dons hope for homecoming boost

    It’s been a difficult start for the West Las Vegas football team, but the Dons and head coach Robert Alarcon can take solace in the fact that the more meaningful games have yet to be played.

    The District 2-3A schedule opens Friday, and whatever troubles the squad has had to this point can be all but forgotten with a good effort against visiting Raton.

    The Tigers are West Las Vegas’ guests for homecoming game, which kicks off at 7 p.m. at the Herrera Complex.

  • West spikes Robertson 3-0

    West Las Vegas asserted its dominance with a three-game sweep of crosstown rival Robertson on Tuesday evening at Mike Marr Gym.

    In addition to being the first East-West matchup of the fall, it also served as the District 2-3A opener for both volleyball teams.

    While the first set could’ve gone either way before the Lady Dons pulled out a 26-24 verdict, West was overpowering in winning the next two, 25-9 and 25-12.

    The Lady Cardinals enjoyed a strong start, taking an 11-0 lead in the first set, but the visitors rallied.

  • Cowboy runners 19th in D-II

    As teams prepare for the postseason, the New Mexico Highlands University men’s cross country remains nationally ranked, checking in this week at No. 19.

    The Cowboys are tied with Cal Poly Pomona for 19th in the latest NCAA Division II poll, released Wednesday by the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association. They garnered 50 points in the poll.

    NMHU, which competed in a crowded, muddy Arkansas Chile Pepper Festival last week, slipped eight spots from No. 11 in the previous poll.
