  • Robertson is No. 7 seed, hosts...

    In a rematch of their season opener, the Robertson Cardinals will begin the Class 3A state football playoffs against Portales.

    Kickoff is 2 p.m. Saturday at Cardinal Stadium. Tickets are $8 general admission, $5 for students and seniors.

    The Cardinals (5-5) enter the playoffs as the No. 7 seed after being ranked as high as second or third early in the year. But RHS is riding a three-game winning streak, having breezed through the District 2-3A schedule, and is one of the hotter teams in 3A.

  • West Las Vegas, Mora open pool...

    West Las Vegas and Mora are both headed to the state volleyball tournaments, which run Thursday through Saturday in Rio Rancho.

    The Lady Dons, coached by Felix Flores, earned the No. 9 seed in the Class 3A tournament after winning the regular-season title in District 2-3A and finishing as runner-up to Raton in the district tournament.

    They play in Pool A along with No. 1 Pojoaque Valley and No. 8 Lovington beginning at 2 p.m. Thursday at the Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho.

  • State XC: Repeat title for Pecos...

    By winning another individual state cross country championship, Pecos senior Antonio Varela helped his Panthers wrap up a second consecutive runner-up finish in the small-school division.

    He also assured himself a permanent place in history.

    Varela won by a 37-second margin in a time of 15:59, completing a stellar cross country career with Pecos.

    Not far behind was Mora’s Alonzo Chavez, who ran third in 16:53; the Rangers finished 12th as a team on the boys’ side.

    Another season of Las Vegas Young American Football League action is in the books, and a couple of local teams made solid region playoff runs over the weekend in town.

    The 49ers, a group of fifth and sixth graders, beat Tucumcari — and a bitter chill — on Saturday morning with a 45-6 score.

  • Kazingo headed to national meet

    Nicaise Kazingo will have a chance to add to his All-America collection after finishing ninth individually in Saturday’s NCAA Division II Central Region cross country meet in Denver.

    Kazingo, a New Mexico Highlands senior, qualified for nationals as one of the top two runners on a non-qualifying men’s team. He and Highlands teammate Ismael Samano (25th overall) earned all-Central Region honors.

  • Vegas Bowl rout gives RHS a title

    Robertson seniors Dalan Abreu and Antonio Arguello each ran for two touchdowns as the Cardinals ran roughshod over West Las Vegas 42-0 on Saturday at Cardinal Stadium.

    The Vegas Bowl shutout extended the Redbirds’ current streak in the crosstown rivalry series and left Robertson standing all alone atop the District 2-3A standings as the regular season came to an end.

    West Las Vegas’ aggressive defense kept the Dons in the game in the early going, and the first quarter ended in a scoreless tie.
