  • Destiny takes a hand - Westgate...

    Westgate pitcher Destiny Garcia pitched one perfect game on Tuesday and was one out away from another in a Wednesday afternoon semifinal vs. Las Vegas in the New Mexico Little League majors (11-12) softball championship tournament.

    But Lettie Vigil finally cracked the code, roping a shot between third and short and then dashing to first.

  • Go Fish - July 18

    Fishing report, July 15
    This fishing report, provided by Bill Dunn and the Department of Game and Fish, has been generated from the best information available from area officers and anglers.

    Charette Lakes: Fishing was good using Power Bait, marshmallows and Pistol Petes tipped with worms. Anglers also did well trolling a worm behind a cow bell attractor. We had no reports on perch.

  • Triggers hold on vs. Vegas

    The Las Vegas Train Robbers dipped to 15-40 after Monday night’s 10-9 squeaker loss at Trinidad.

    Las Vegas began the game in a 3-0 hole because that had been the score when the previous night’s game was rained out at Santa Rosa High School’s baseball field. Pecos League officials canceled the originally scheduled Monday game between Trinidad and Las Vegas and instead had the rivals resume the suspended game, which had just reached the second inning when the storm struck.

  • Lightning strikes TWICE - Las...

    Ripping across the heavens in multiple directions, the lightning bolts struck, near and far, accompanied by the peals of thunder and a persistent rain.

    Only the lightning could delay the seeming inevitability of another state championship for the Las Vegas juniors softball team in a 22-2 deluge that washed away Zia Mile HIgh’s hopes of upsetting the defending champs on Sunday afternoon at New Mexico Highlands University’s Cowgirl Field.

  • HU punter is preseason All-...

    When the New Mexico Highlands football offense stalls on a drive downfield, the Cowboys can at least be assured of being able to pin the opponent deep via the punting game.

    Thanks in large part to Patrick Carney, Highlands has been keeping opponents honest on its own fourth down situations.
    Carney was recognized as a preseason All-American for NCAA Division II by The Sporting News and Lindy’s, nationally respected sports publications, the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference announced on Monday.

  • Triggers-Robbers in Santa Rosa

    Rainy weather led to cancellation of one game and interrupted another in the Las Vegas Train Robbers’ last two scheduled home games of the summer.

    On Sunday, the Las Vegas-Trinidad contest at Rodriguez Park was rained out altogether. Then on Monday, a special Santa Rosa date reached the second inning — with the Triggers up 3-0 — before officials called a halt due to weather. The game was to resume on Tuesday in Trinidad, with the originally slated game cancelled by the Pecos League.
