  • No charges for Stewart

    The Associated Press

    CANANDAIGUA, N.Y. — After more than six weeks in limbo, NASCAR star Tony Stewart finally got the news he had been hoping for.

    A grand jury that heard testimony from more than two dozen witnesses, including accident reconstruction experts and drivers, and looked at photographs and video decided against bringing criminal charges against Stewart for the death of 20-year-old sprint car driver Kevin Ward Jr. during an Aug. 9 race.

    That doesn’t mean it’s over.

  • Homecoming '14
  • Runners shine in Duke City

    Meadow City runners invaded the Duke City this past Saturday, and several in particular had an impact.

    West Las Vegas’ boys’ varsity placed third in the Manzano Invitational, and three Dons earned top 10 individual finishes.
    Moises Coca ran third, his second time in the top three in as many Saturdays. J.J. Esquibel was seventh and Kevin Villanueva ninth. Miguel Coca (18th), Conrad Atencio (23rd) and Enrico Tenorio (30th) rounded out the West Las Vegas boys’ effort.

  • Getting the ‘W’

    Ray Parks won a lot of games as the founding head coach of the Robertson girls’ soccer program.
    On Monday, he won his first as coach of the boys’ team.

    The young Cardinals (1-7) broke through in a 2-1 triumph over Desert Academy (6-3) as a light-drizzle-moistened RHS Field.

    That the win came eight matches into the schedule made it especially sweet for the players and coaches on the Robertson sideline.

    The Cowgirls managed to outshoot the Skyhawks 13-6, including 6-4 in shots on goal, but the New Mexico Highlands soccer team (3-2-1, 0-1-1 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference) saw Fort Lewis (2-3-1, 1-1 RMAC) score the lone goal on a mad scramble in the box Sunday afternoon at Perkins Stadium.

    West Las Vegas’ fledgling girls’ soccer team has been defying odds all season.

    The Lady Dons took it to another level this past Saturday, playing shorthanded a full 80 minutes in a road match against a solid Taos team.

    According to reports, the Lady Dons fielded eight players against Taos’ 11 in a 9-0 win for the Lady Tigers.

    West Las Vegas will play its first home contest at 11 a.m. Saturday when Academy for Technology and the Classics comes to the Herrera Complex.

  • No. 1 Cardinals shut out St....

    Friday night’s marquee matchup left little doubt as to which side is the No. 1 team in the new Class 4A.

    Top-rated Robertson dominated visiting St. Michael’s — ranked either second or third in the polls this week — by a 20-0 count to remain undefeated at 4-0. The Horsemen, whose resume had included wins over Taos, Santa Fe and Capital, slid to 3-1.

  • Jaguars steal Dons’ thunder at...

    A frequent homecoming opponent in recent years, the Capital Jaguars are figuring out how to spoil the party for their hosts.

    Capital dashed out to a 28-0 first-quarter lead and held on for a 46-6 win over West Las Vegas on Friday night at the Herrera Complex.

    The Dons and coach Adrian Gonzales remain in search of their first victory this fall. The next chance comes Friday vs. Hatch Valley (3-1, counting two wins at a pair of small Texas schools and one over Las Cruces' junior varsity).
