  • Vatos play on

    To fellow members of the Vatos rugby club, Alani Tuineau Sione was more than a teammate.

    He was a brother.

    As can be expected, Sione’s death in a rollover accident Saturday on Interstate 25 near Santa Fe has shaken the tight-knit club to its core.

    Sione and other members of the club as well as other family members — including several young children — were returning from a rugby road trip when the crash took place.

  • Cowgirls drop Zias in four

    Former Rio Rancho star Darian Mullen connected on 18 kills while hitting .279 and added 11 digs in leading New Mexico Highlands past Eastern New Mexico three sets to one on Tuesday night at the Wilson Complex.

    It was Highlands’ home debut under new head coach Bryan Crawford, and the Cowgirls plan to stick around a while. They’ve got home matches with Western State and Adams State scheduled for Friday and Saturday evenings.

  • Dons to host homecoming

    West Las Vegas’ homecoming game Friday night against Ruidoso won’t be a walk in the park.

    The visiting Warriors, who kick off against the Dons at 7 p.m., are coming off wins over Socorro and Hot Springs, while West is looking to break a three-game skid.

    A positive is that West (0-3) and first-year head coach Robert Alarcon will be playing under the lights of their own Herrera Complex, which hosted a first-ever Friday night varsity football game last weekend.

  • ‘The Cowgirl Way’ - Endowment...

    True success doesn’t happen by accident, guest speaker Dorothy Robinson told an audience at the recent Cowgirl Way scholarship luncheon. Meaningful achievement requires the ingredients of determination, grit, courage and ethical behavior.

  • Crespin boxing in Santa Fe...

    Las Vegas professional boxer Amanda Crespin is slated to fight on Saturday night in Santa Fe at the Pueblo Pavilion.

    Angela Hayes has been announced as the opponent for Crespin, who is 5-4-1 as a pro after winning earlier this month in Pueblo, Colo.

    Tickets (from $15 up) are available at the venue itself, which is on the campus of Santa Fe Indian School. Gates open at 5 p.m.

    Headlining the card will be Albuquerque’s Raymond Montes (5-2, four knockouts) in a bantamweight battle with Tony Valdez (6-3-2, six KOs) of Española.

  • Chavez breaks Taos meet record

    Forty-three seconds.

    In terms of rush-hour traffic, that’s not a whole lot of time — maybe enough to check your cell phone or to surf the radio for better music.

    In terms of a cross country race, it’s plenty.

    Alonzo Chavez of Mora shredded the old course record of the Taos Invitational by 43 seconds on Saturday, easily winning the individual boys’ championship.
