    The Las Vegas Little League 10-11 All-Star softball team captured the state championship in its division over the weekend and celebrated on Sunday afternoon with a noisy victory lap around the Meadow City.

  • NFL labor deal close?

    The Associated Press

    The NFL told club executives they could be schooled in the ins and outs of the new labor contract as early as Thursday, and the players’ association summoned its leadership for a potential vote — the strongest signs yet the lockout might be nearing an end.

    Lawyers for both sides met 8 1/2 hours Monday in New York, including 3 1/2 with a court-appointed mediator, to try to close a deal to resolve the sport’s first work stoppage since 1987. Talks were scheduled to continue Tuesday.

  • South takes 2 of 3

    Class 2A or Class 3A? It didn’t matter.

    Four 8-minute high school quarters or two 20-minute college-style halves? That didn’t matter either.

    Yeshemabet Turner of Pecos took the changes all in stride, scoring eight of her 14 points in the first half to lead the North girls to an 87-58 blowout in Friday’s Class 2A-3A North-South All-Star girls’ basketball game at New Mexico Highlands University’s Wilson Complex.

  • LVLL 9-10 sluggers reach final...

    TAOS — Las Vegas Little League’s 9-10 baseball team clobbered Clayton and Taos en route to a spot in Sunday’s championship game this past week in the District 4 tournament.

    Sunday’s championship game concluded after this issue went to press.

    The team began its run July 9, picking up a forfeit victory over Questa.

    “Our boys were ready to play and upset they didn’t get an opportunity to,” said manager Nicholas Marrujo.

    Las Vegas soon got its opportunity to play and made the most of it.
