    The Cowboys tallied three pins and one technical fall. Two of the team’s six wins were scored by New Mexico natives — former Santa Fe High standout Travis Saxon and Moriarty native and Gadsden High grad Chris Apodaca.

  • Robertson grapples to Pinto final

    Five individual Robertson wrestlers went undefeated — with two making all-tournament team — as the Cardinals placed second in the Pinto Duals this past weekend in Moriarty.

    As a team, RHS won four of five dual meets, losing only in the final, a 44-33 verdict against Albuquerque’s Atrisco Heritage. The Cardinals gave up a number of weight classes via forfeit, particularly in the final dual of the weekend.

    Coach Rick Armijo says he likes seeing a balanced team effort from his Robertson Lady Cardinals.

    He got all of that and then some Monday evening as the Lady Cards dismantled Tucumcari 85-29 at Mike Marr Gym.

    Ten Robertson players scored and everyone who played contributed in the rout of the Class 2A Lady Rattlers.

    Brandon Maddux got the breakout performance he’d been looking for over the weekend, advancing to the 120-pound championship match of the Al Salazar Memorial Invitational, St. Michael’s annual wrestling tournament at Perez-Shelley Gym in Santa Fe.

    Maddux, one of West Las Vegas’ team leaders, lost in the final but his second-place finish helped the Dons take fifth place in the team standings. It’s the second straight year West has wrangled a top-five finish in the event.
