  • Netters split with Hope

    In home tennis action this past week, Robertson’s boys dominated Hope Christian 8-1 while the Lady Cardinals fell 7-2.

    On the boys’ side, the Cardinals’ top five singles competitors — David Romero, Nick Newman, Michael Salas, Daniel Hasch and Marcos Gallegos — each won their matches. Lawrence Marquez “lost a tough one,” said RHS head coach Roman Fulgenzi.

    Marquez and Hasch paired up to win their doubles contest, as did the teams of Romero-Newman and Salas-Gallegos.

  • Chavez off to a good start

    Defending state champion Alonzo Chavez cruised to victory in three events this past Thursday at the Pojoaque Valley Invitational, highlighting a solid showing by area track and field athletes in Jacona.

    Chavez won the 3,200-meter run with a time of 10:14.23, the 1,600-meter run in 4:33.43 and the Chris Peterson Memorial 800-meter run in 2:02.35. He qualified for state in each event.

  • Mines takes 2 of first 3

    Colorado School of Mines found a way to contain New Mexico Highlands’ typically prolific offense over the weekend, holding the Cowboys to one run total over games one and three of their four-game set at Brandt Park.

    Highlands broke through for an 11-2 victory in the series’ second game.

    But the visiting Orediggers won Thursday’s opener 2-1 and Friday’s nightcap 3-0 to assure they’d leave Las Vegas with no worse than a split. The teams were to wrap the series on Saturday afternoon after this issue went to press.

  • A no-no for ‘Muma’

    Marissa “Muma” Cordova may as well have been chucking Easter eggs for the Pojoaque Elkettes to try to hit on Wednesday.

    The Elkettes couldn’t find a way to crack the code against the West Las Vegas softball ace, and West ended up with a 14-0 victory in the delayed third-place game of the St. Michael’s tournament.

    Cordova was credited with 12 strikeouts on her way to a no-hitter against Pojoaque. She came close to a flawless game, allowing just one baserunner via walk.

  • So long, Alford

    Associated Press

    LOS ANGELES — UCLA hired Steve Alford as basketball coach on Saturday, luring him from New Mexico days after he signed a new 10-year deal with the Lobos.

    Athletic director Dan Guerrero said Alford is “the perfect fit for UCLA” because he connects with a new generation of players and brings an up-tempo and team-oriented style of play to Westwood.

  • Dennison edges Crespin

    Nohime Dennison emerged victorious in her third fight with Las Vegas super featherweight Amanda “Boom Boom” Crespin, taking a majority decision on Friday night in Albuquerque.

    Two judges had Dennison winning the six-round match with tallies of 59-55 and 60-56. A third saw it as a 57-57 draw.

    All three fights between the two have been close, going down to decisions.

    Crespin falls to 7-5-1 as a pro. Dennison is 5-2-2.

  • Cardinals a mix of experience,...

    The success of the Robertson boys’ basketball program in recent seasons has meant a consistent early-season test of the Cardinal baseball team’s depth.

    With several key teammates extending their hoops season by a couple weeks, the rest of the RHS sluggers have had to pick up the slack until the team is made whole in mid-March.
