  • Meadow City motion

    Buoyed by several commanding individual efforts, the Robertson girls’ track and field squad earned a decisive team championship in Monday’s Meadow City Invitational.

    Meanwhile, the resurgent West Las Vegas teams captured runner-up trophies in both the boys’ and girls’ divisions, and Cardinal coaches gave a thumbs up to the RHS boys’ squad — a lineup thinned by ineligibility cuts earlier this season — for placing a strong fourth.

  • Editorial Cartoon - April 22,...
  • Slam city - Tafoya hits three...

    How do you top two home runs in a single game?

    By crushing a third homer for a walk-off grand slam to bring an early end to a 12-0 shutout.

    Robertson senior Ryan Tafoya did just that on Saturday, helping the Cardinals (16-6, 8-0) sweep Pojoaque Valley at Whorton Field.

  • Highlands takes two vs. Grizzlies

    After two vastly different looking baseball games, New Mexico Highlands and host Adams State had a split on Saturday in Alamosa, Colo.

    A two-run homer by Adams State’s Drew Wells boosted the Grizzlies to a 3-2 squeaker in game one.

    Wells’ shot came in the top of the sixth, wiping away a 2-1 Cowboy lead, and Highlands was unable to answer in the top of the seventh. Tanner Wiemers (3-3) took the win after successfully denying NMHU.

  • LCC player signs with Oklahoma...

    Today Ridge Hoopii-Haslam is going to school and hitting home runs for Luna Community College. Soon he will be doing the same at Oklahoma Baptist University.

    Hoopii-Haslam, a sports performance major, signed a national letter of intent to play baseball for Oklahoma Baptist next season. More importantly, OBU is considered one of the best in the entire nation by The Princeton Review.

  • Isotopes fall to .500

    The Albuquerque Isotopes fell to the .500 mark Saturday night, dropping the opener of their home series with division rival Oklahoma City, 3-1.

    Albuquerque (8-8) has generally found ways to score runs this spring, but the ‘Topes struggled against the RedHawks.

    Alex Castellanos drove in the lone Isotopes run when he singled to bring home Elian Herrera in the bottom of the fourth inning.

    As a team, the ‘Topes managed just four hits.
