  • Little League elections Oct. 22

    Elections for Las Vegas Little League and La Plaza Little League will be held at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 22, at the Abe Montoya Recreation Center.

    Last season, the two leagues joined forces on the governing board level, although LVLL and La Plaza retained independent sets of officers, teams and schedules in all divisions.

    Michael Quintana served as board president. Each league had posts for their own vice president, secretary, treasurer, player agent, safety officer and chief umpire.

    For more information on the elections, call 718-9964.

  • Second half dooms Dons at Laguna

    David McGee racked up nearly 300 offensive yards Friday night, leading the Laguna Acoma football team (3-3) to a 46-6 rout of visiting West Las Vegas.

    McGee passed the century mark in rushing yardage by halftime, and he didn’t let up after that.

    Ironically, it was the Dons who led the game early. Anthony Medina, taking a toss from Jose Juan Montaño, finished the visitors’ game-opening drive in the end zone. After a two-point conversion try failed, West Las Vegas led 6-0 with 10:47 left in the first quarter.

  • No. 4 Ruidoso doubles up Cards

    Robertson’s last gasp almost took Ruidoso’s breath away on Friday night.

    With 2:31 left and the host Warriors sitting on a cozy 21-point cushion, they coughed up the ball near midfield.
    Jose Estrada came up with the fumble.

  • Lobos run over Aggies 66-17

    Staff and wire reports

    ALBUQUERQUE — Kasey Carrier rushed for three first-quarter touchdowns to lead New Mexico to a 66-17 victory Saturday over rival New Mexico State.

    Five different Lobos scored on the ground while Carlos Wiggins added a touchdown catch and took a kickoff back for another score as New Mexico (2-3) equaled its highest point total in the series with the Aggies (0-6).

    Carrier finished with 126 yards on 14 carries, and Lobos quarterback Cole Gautsche added 127 yards on 12 carries with one touchdown rushing and one passing.

  • Last-minute drive foiled

    Colorado Mesa stuffed what would’ve been a game-winning drive at its own 3-yard line with 17 seconds left Saturday, sealing a critical victory over New Mexico Highlands, 22-17, before a crowd of 2,000 at Perkins Stadium.

    After falling to 2-3 overall and 1-2 in league play, the Cowboys and head coach Eric Young now face an uphill battle in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference football chase.

    NMHU will play at Western State on Saturday in Gunnison, Colo., then return to the Perk to host Adams State for homecoming on Oct. 19.

  • NMHU runners get taste of Chile...

    In a race heavily populated with athletes from NCAA Division I schools, New Mexico Highlands University was well-represented among the fray of the 2013 Chile Pepper Cross Country Festival held Saturday in Fayetteville, Ark.
    Highlands’ lead runners —Henrique Chavez on the men’s side and Marie-Josiane Ohoueu on the women’s — both cracked the 60s in placing.
