  • Correction - Sports - May 6, 2013

    The April 24 edition of the Optic incorrectly reported that the New Mexico Highlands University Vatos rugby team qualified for nationals in the college division. The team competes in the men’s open Division III and qualified for nationals after winning both the Rio Grande Union title and the Arizona-New Mexico regional title. Coach and adviser Dick Greene said the Vatos are now three wins away from a televised national championship game.

  • Montaño signs with Highlands

    With all the events she’s been competing in — and excelling in — over the last several years, Robertson’s Kristen Montaño has given her supporters plenty to watch during track and field meets.

    Look for her to continue doing so next year — as a member of the New Mexico Highlands women’s track and field program.

  • Breakout day for Pecos at NRG

    “Everyone really brought it,” Pecos track and field coach Leroy Barela said of his athletes’ effort in this past weekend’s Northern Rio Grande Invitational held in Ojo Caliente.

    The Lady Panthers won the girls’ meet, racking up 96 team points to beat Dulce (75) and Penasco (61). And the Panthers were a runner-up on the boys’ side despite missing five of their leading scorers. Escalante won the boys’ title with 123 points; Pecos had 87 and Penasco 69.

  • Camp pays tribute to Miranda...

    A couple years after her untimely death, basketball hero Miranda Serna is still dishing out assists.

    The summer youth basketball camp that bears her name was so popular in its inaugural season that it reached its registration capacity of 65 within eight days.

    “It’s not only the way we’ve run the camp,” said Aaron Chavez, one of the camp’s coordinators and a cousin of Serna’s. “It’s also that people really respected Miranda.”

  • ‘Topes win in 10th

    A two-run bomb by Tim Federowicz lifted the Isotopes to a 6-4 win in the 10th inning of their Wednesday home game with Memphis.

    Albuquerque improved to 15-11 and won its third straight over the Redbirds.

    Federowicz finished 3 for 4 with two doubles and four RBI. Elian Herrera also homered.

    Friday through Monday, the Isotopes host New Orleans.

  • Kanneh heads to camp with Browns

    For the past couple years, New Mexico has been home to Jordan Campbell and Abdul Kanneh.

    Now both former Highlands Cowboys are hoping that Ohio will become the place they hang their football helmets.

    Kanneh reportedly has accepted an invitation to rookie minicamp with the Cleveland Browns.

    And as the Optic reported earlier this week, Jordan Campbell inked a deal to join the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Both went undrafted in the NFL Draft last weekend but were among the first wave of players to draw interest in free agency.
