  • ‘Pokes rally past Mavericks

    Highlands’ Darius Davis hauled in a 3-yard pass from Emmanuel Lewis for a go-ahead score with 1:52 remaining, completing a late rally by the Cowboys for a 40-36 win over Colorado Mesa on Saturday in Grand Junction, Colo.

    The comeback from a 16-point deficit gave the Cowboys a 3-0 record in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference, a 4-1 overall mark, and a two-game win streak heading into homecoming week.

    Highlands hosts Western State this coming Saturday.

  • Cowboys take the Jam
  • Elks hold on, drop Dons

    On the first play from scrimmage Saturday, Pojoaque Valley quarterback John Ainsworth dashed 67 yards for a touchdown against the visiting West Las Vegas Dons.

    That play may have set the tone for the afternoon, but it was the Elks’ stingy defense that carried through in a 33-24 verdict that sent the Dons to their fifth consecutive defeat.

    Ainsworth rushed for triple-digit yardage, with 84 coming in the first half, and his arm made him a bonafide option threat throughout the game.

  • Cardinals get healthy at Jags’...

    If the Robertson Cardinals were looking for relief from their brutal early schedule, they certainly found it Friday night in Santa Fe.

    The Cards had little trouble outdueling the struggling Capital Jaguars in a 35-0 win, which boosted Robertson’s record to 2-3 overall.

    James Gonzales rushed for nearly 200 yards and Dominic Lucero approached the century mark for the Redbirds, who will have this weekend off to prepare for an Oct. 12 homecoming date with Pojoaque Valley.

  • WLV sweeps the silver

    Alonzo Chavez posted the quickest time to date in winning his fourth straight meet.

    Karlene Montaño returned to form near the front of the pack.

    And the West Las Vegas boys’ and girls’ cross country teams swept the runner-up team awards, all in Saturday’s Meadow City Cross Country Invitational, held at the Gene Torres Golf Course.

    Highlights of prep varsity results are as follows.

  • Weekend Roundup - Cowgirl...

    First-half goals by Autumn Woods, Crystal Schuder and Kelsie Roberts went unanswered for the remaining 57 minutes of regulation, and host New Mexico Highlands claimed its first league victory in women's soccer with a 3-0 shutout of Colorado State-Pueblo on Friday night at Perkins Stadium.

    The Cowgirls improved to 3-6 overall and 1-4 in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference, while CSUP dropped to 1-6-1 and 1-4.

    Autumn Woods punched in a Marci Johnson corner at the 20:48 mark for the first goal.

  • Runners to highlight weekend

    It’ll be a distance running festival on Saturday morning in Las Vegas, as athletes from area middle schools on up to the collegiate level will be doing their thing at New Mexico Highlands’ Gene Torres Golf Course to highlight another busy sports weekend.

    The NMHU XC Jam and the Meadow City Invitational will share the course beginning at 8 a.m. Saturday; the event is free and open to the public.

  • Wolves sweep Cowgirl spikers

    Thirteen was lucky for Morgan Wilkening and the rest of Colorado State-Pueblo’s volleyball team on Tuesday night.

    Wilkening tallied 13 kills and 13 digs — both team highs — to lead the ThunderWolves to a straight-sets win over New Mexico Highlands in the Wilson Complex.

    CSUP (11-4 overall, 2-3 in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference) was a model of offensive efficiency in the match, hitting at a .352 percentage and committing only eight attack errors in the sweep.
