  • Cowgirl soccer silences Wolves

    Andrea Duke found the back of the net in the 70th minute Wednesday night, lifting New Mexico Highlands past Colorado State-Pueblo 1-0 in Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference women’s soccer.

    The Cowgirls, who improved to 3-0-2, dominated the Perkins Stadium pitch much of the evening. They kept the action largely on the CSUP side with 26 shots, including 10 on goal.

    Crystal Schuder had four of those shots on goal; Duke had three.

    That pressure finally caught up to ThunderWolves goalkeeper Savannah Thompson, a preseason All-RMAC honoree.

  • Trujillo, West drop Prep;...

    Santa Fe Prep’s volleyball team had a good start to Tuesday night’s match at West Las Vegas.

    But the Lady Dons’ Celeste Trujillo had a better finish.

    Trujillo delivered five kills in the fourth set alone, leading West to a 3-1 triumph over the Blue Griffins.

  • Chavez, Ohoueu lead HU charge

    Henrique Chavez was the first native-born American runner to cross the finish line — and the fifth overall — in the Red Raider Open this past Saturday in Lubbock, Texas.

    The Buena Vista native and former Mora High state champion led New Mexico Highlands to a second-place team finish in the collegiate men’s race. Fourteen teams competed in the meet.

    Paris native Marie-Josiane Ohoueu paced NMHU’s women, helping them finish fourth as a team.

    Chavez finished the 8K course in 25:57, 26 seconds ahead of the sixth-place finisher, Dylan Doss of West Texas A&M.

  • Cowgirl spikers match 2012 win...

    With a second straight weekend winning three of four matches in a tournament, the New Mexico Highlands University volleyball team has already equaled its win total from 2012.

    The Cowgirls are 6-2 in their second season under Bryan Crawford. Highlands went 3-1 over the weekend in its own I.C. Bhakta Invitational at the Wilson Complex.

  • Under the weather

    It was still early in the third quarter Friday night at Cardinal Stadium, and his team was locked in a tight struggle with the visiting Santa Rosa Lions — winners of three straight Class 2A state football championships.

    Robertson running back James Gonzales, taking a breather on the sideline, resting on one knee, marveled at the action in front of him.

    “This is the funnest game I’ve ever played in my life,” he said, matter-of-factly.
