  • Cowboys take three at Metro

    Solidifying its hold on third place in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference baseball chase, the New Mexico Highlands Cowboys took three of four games at Metro State College of Denver over the weekend in the Mile-High City.

    Game scores were 8-4, 9-6, 11-2 in Highlands’ favor and then a 10-4 reversal of fortune for Metro State in the series’ last game Saturday.

    The Cowboys are 23-10 overall and 16-8 in RMAC play; Metro fell to 10-20 and 7-17.

  • Cowgirls finish Pueblo series...

    Averting a four-game sweep at league opponent Colorado State-Pueblo, the Highlands softball team shut out the host ThunderWolves 5-0 in this past Saturday’s series finale.

    Highlands had played the Wolves close in two of its three losses but came up short 3-2, 9-1 and 9-7 in games one through three over the weekend in Pueblo.

    In game one Friday, CSUP took a 3-0 headstart in the first inning aided by three Cowgirl errors.

  • ‘Topes start 1-4 on road

    The Albuquerque Isotopes found themselves climbing out of an 8-0 hole and wound up on the short end of a 10-6 tally Monday night in Des Moines, Iowa.

    After opening the season with three losses in four games at the Omaha Storm Chasers, the ‘Topes are 1-4 to begin the organization’s 10th year of operations. Albuquerque and Iowa were to play again on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

  • No. 9 Highlands tracksters rock...

  • Lady Dons split with No. 1 Rams

    Ranked third in the state among Class 3A softball teams, West Las Vegas went toe to toe with the No. 1 Portales Rams on Thursday and came away with a mostly satisfying split.

    Lady Don errors proved costly in a 10-4 game one loss. After spotting Portales a 2-0 lead in the first inning, West came back and pulled within one.

    But miscues allowed the Rams to pull away.

    WLV ace Marrissa Cordova struck out 10 and held Portales to three hits but allowed five walks.

  • West sweeps Sundevils in...

    “Maybe the baseball gods are finally starting to smile down on us,” shrugged West Las Vegas coach Dean Gallegos after his team pulled off a dramatic 5-4 comeback win in extra innings against Class 4A Española Valley on Thursday afternoon.

    The Dons, who also went on to a messy 9-1 win over the Sundevils in game two of a doubleheader at WLV Field, are rated ninth in the state as they prepare to meet up again with crosstown rival Robertson this Tuesday.

  • Isotopes open 10th season

    Albuquerque Isotopes

    If the Opening Day roster is any indication, the 2012 Albuquerque Isotopes are shaping up to be an offensive juggernaut, with established Triple-A sluggers Jerry Sands and Trent Oeltjen combining with up-and-coming stars Scott Van Slyke and Alex Castellanos, among others, for one of the most prodigious Opening Day offenses in team history.
