  • More lengthy talks in NBA tiff

    The Associated Press

    NEW YORK  — NBA owners and players were engaged in another marathon session Wednesday, meeting for more than 12 hours in talks aimed at ending the lockout.

    The two sides got back to the table with a small group meeting less than a week after three intense days of mediation didn't produce a new labor deal. Wednesday’s negotiations marked the second-longest bargaining session since the lockout began July 1.

  • Skyhawks ground NMHU

    Again, the Highlands’ women’s soccer team came up on the losing end of a one-goal margin against one of the top teams in the nation.

    This time, it was Fort Lewis, the No. 14 team in NCAA Division II, on Sunday in Durango, Colo., dealing the Cowgirls a 2-1 defeat after 90 minutes of competitive soccer.

    Hayley Hollenga scored both goals for the Skyhawks, who hold on to the top spot in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference with a 13-1-3 overall and 10-1-2 league record.

    NMHU is 9-7-1 overall and 7-5-1 in the RMAC.

  • Rangers a win away from Series...

    The Associated Press

    ARLINGTON, Texas — A long drive by Mike Napoli, a lucky bounce near the mound and suddenly the Texas Rangers were on the brink of their first World Series championship.

    Napoli delivered the biggest hit of his charmed season, lining a tiebreaking two-run double in the eighth inning that sent the Rangers past the St. Louis Cardinals 4-2 on Monday night for a 3-2 edge.

    The slugging catcher then capped off his night of double duty, throwing out a would-be base stealer in the ninth as Albert Pujols struck out.

  • Cowgirl spikers lose twice in...

    The Highlands Cowgirls tried to double down Monday in the onetime gambling town of Silver City, but they came back without much to show for it.

    Non-league opponent Grand Canyon swept the Cowgirls 25-21, 25-23, 25-19, and then Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference rival Western New Mexico also took Highlands down in three sets, 25-21, 25-21, 25-19.
