  • South takes 2 of 3

    Class 2A or Class 3A? It didn’t matter.

    Four 8-minute high school quarters or two 20-minute college-style halves? That didn’t matter either.

    Yeshemabet Turner of Pecos took the changes all in stride, scoring eight of her 14 points in the first half to lead the North girls to an 87-58 blowout in Friday’s Class 2A-3A North-South All-Star girls’ basketball game at New Mexico Highlands University’s Wilson Complex.

  • LVLL 9-10 sluggers reach final...

    TAOS — Las Vegas Little League’s 9-10 baseball team clobbered Clayton and Taos en route to a spot in Sunday’s championship game this past week in the District 4 tournament.

    Sunday’s championship game concluded after this issue went to press.

    The team began its run July 9, picking up a forfeit victory over Questa.

    “Our boys were ready to play and upset they didn’t get an opportunity to,” said manager Nicholas Marrujo.

    Las Vegas soon got its opportunity to play and made the most of it.

  • North-South bittersweet for some

    Many of the North-South All-Stars lining up for the basketball or football games this weekend acknowledge that it’ll be a bittersweet moment for them.

    Some may go on to play on the college level in 2011-12. Most will take part in at least some type of organized competition in the future. But at the very least, the North-South games mean the end of one major chapter in their lives.

    TAOS — While Las Vegas Little League’s 11-12 All-Stars softball team celebrates its newly won District 4 championship (and ticket to state), the LVLL and La Plaza 11-12 baseball teams were on track for a shot at their own title.

    The LVLL 11-12 girls, managed by Ramon Vialpando, defeated Taos 13-3 on Tuesday for their second win over the hometown favorites in the tournament.

    MOENCHENGLADBACH, Germany — Abby Wambach sure knows how to deliver.

    A goal, a promise and soon, she hopes, a World Cup title.

    The U.S. women had fans on edge once again until Wambach broke a tense tie with her header off a corner kick in the 79th minute Wednesday. Alex Morgan scored three minutes later to seal a 3-1 semifinal victory over France, and the Americans let loose with a party that carried all the way across the Atlantic Ocean.
