    NMHU Sports Information and Optic reports

    The New Mexico Highlands University men’s team placed third and the women took fourth in the Roadrunner Invite this past Saturday in Denver.

    Colorado-Colorado Springs, currently ranked in the national top 20, took the women’s title and host Metro State won the men’s race.

  • Soccer: Beasties push No. 1 Prep

    Unbeaten in nine matches and ranked No. 1 in Class 1A-4A girls’ soccer, Santa Fe Prep was the clear favorite at Robertson on Thursday.

    Still, the Blue Griffins had about as much trouble shaking Robertson off their trail as they did kicking the mud of RHS Field off their cleats. The Blue Griffins never were able to pull away in an eventual 3-1 defeat of the Lady Cardinals on Thursday evening.

    They improved to 9-0-1, while the Lady Cards slipped to 7-8.

  • Volleyball: Lady Dons show...

    After falling 25-18 in the opening set, West Las Vegas’ volleyball team knew how critical game two was to their chances of beating Taos on the road Tuesday night.

    A 31-29 Lady Dons win in a dogfight second set tied the match at one set apiece. Brianna Maes served an ace for set point. The hard-won momentum stayed on West’s side, as the team won 25-21 and 25-16 to clinch victory for the third time this fall.

    West Las Vegas improved its record to 3-8 this fall under first-year head coach Felix Flores.

  • Weekend football previews: Dons...

    Both West Las Vegas and Santa Fe Indian enjoy winning records as they get ready to meet on the gridiron Friday night at the Herrera Complex.

    Coach Adrian Gonzales’ Dons are coming off a bye week and looking to pick up where they left off, having trounced Pojoaque Valley 52-0 two weeks ago in Jacona. West (3-2) has gotten a good measure of balance from its offense.

    Antonio Bustamante is averaging 84.8 rushing yards a game, and he leads the team in touchdowns with 13, including 11 via the ground game.

  • Soccer: Cardinal boys conquer St...

    Bruised and battered after a series of physical encounters on the soccer pitch, the Robertson Cardinals found themselves facing an always-tough St. Michael’s bunch on the road Tuesday in Santa Fe.

    This time, smart team defense paved the way to a Robertson win. The Horsemen (5-5-2) scored a first-half goal when Justice Johnson fed Wesley Reynolds. But Robertson didnt allow any other scores and were the more active outfit — putting 10 shots on goal.

  • D-backs advance to NLDS

    The Associated Press

    PHOENIX — The Colorado Rockies had been resilient all season, scraping their way into the playoffs after the best start in franchise history fizzled.

    The Rockies were able to summon some of that resolve again in the NL wild-card game, but never could fully dig their way out of an early hole during an 11-8 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday night.
