    Training camps in the National Football League are now in full swing, and the Arena Bowl kicks off this weekend, signaling the end of the AFL season. Let’s take another look at how former RMAC student-athletes are doing. Seven players started NFL training camps recently. Five of those are rookies attempting to earn an opening day roster spot, and two veterans look to establish prominent roles on their respective teams. Below is the latest on how the RMAC is faring at the next level.

  • Boxing in town Saturday

    An evening of amateur boxing that features several local fighters is scheduled for Saturday at Crespin’s Boxing Gym, 900 West Valencia.

    One of the featured bouts pits local Mateo Gold, representing Crespin’s, against Maunice Reyes from Deming Boxing.

    Savanna Trujillo, who also fights representing Crespin’s, will take on an opponent to be announced.

  • Isotopes eye playoffs

    The hottest team in the Pacific Coast League just last week has cooled off in recent days, but the team hoping to catch up hasn’t been able to close much ground.

    The former is the Oklahoma City RedHawks, who lost their fifth consecutive game on the heels of a lengthy win streak to end July.

    The latter is the Albuquerque Isotopes, who on Wednesday lost their second straight to visiting Salt Lake, thus remaining two games behind the RedHawks in the pursuit of the PCL American Southern Division title.

  • Go Fish - August 16, 2013

    FISHING REPORT, Aug. 13  
    Charette Lakes: Due to low water levels only small boats are being launched here and with some difficulty. Trout fishing was fair to good trolling Christmas tree-worm combinations. A few were also caught by anglers using power bait. No reports on perch.
    Cimarron River: Water flow near Cimarron on Monday was 8.9 cfs. Trout fishing was good using parachute adams, zebra midges, elk hair caddis and small stimulators. A few trout have also been taken on salmon eggs.

  • Going the distance - Running 50-...

    For most Las Vegas-area runners, the 10-kilometer race — such as the longest event of the annual Fiesta Memorial Run — represents the ultimate in distance competition.

    (There are exceptions, of course, like members of the New Mexico Highlands cross country teams and the few brave marathon competitors and triathletes out there.)

    But for Katrin Silva, the 10K is a mere warm-up exercise.
