    The West Las Vegas Dons earned their first victory of the season Saturday, taking seventh place in the 2010 Al Armendariz Classic with a 51-46 decision against Deming.


    Forward Stevan Gonzales led the West Las Vegas offensive effort, tallying 19 points and grabbing eight rebounds. Martin Blea had a solid all-around game with eight points, seven boards and three assists.

  • Medrano has strong start for WLV...

    Jayvis Medrano’s senior season as a West Las Vegas wrestler began with a dominant performance Saturday in Los Lunas.
    Medrano, a 171-pounder for the Dons and coach Robert Alarcon, went 4-0 in the Tiger Invitational, which served as West’s season-opening event.


    Medrano is considered a state contender and a team leader for the green and gold grapplers.

  • Cowgirls open RMAC 0-2

    Three Roadrunner women reached double figures to spoil the home and league debut of the New Mexico Highlands Cowgirls in Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference women’s basketball play Friday evening at the Wilson Complex.


    Metro State College of Denver prevailed 68-51 to improve to 5-0 overall and 1-0 in the RMAC. NMHU is 3-5 and 0-2, respectively, heading into this weekend’s Colorado road trip to Western State and Mesa State.

  • Cordova left legacy of mentorship

    By Henry Sanchez

    It’s amazing — the older we get, the more we appreciate the Good Old Days and the people that made them that way for us. As the years have passed like the wind, I have come to appreciate more my education at St. Joseph’s College and my mentor and coach, Dr. Rudy Cordova.

  • Cowgirl tracksters picked 4th in...

    Respect continues to grow for the New Mexico Highlands women’s track and field team.


    The Cowgirls were picked to finish fourth among the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference’s 10 schools that offer women’s indoor track and field programs. That is according to an RMAC preseason coaches’ poll released on Monday by the Colorado Springs-based league office.
    Powered by some strong individual performances — notably by the versatile Angella Graham — the Cowgirls have challenged in a number of events across the board.

  • LV teams lead Jamboree

    If the performances in Wednesday’s West Las Vegas Middle School Jamboree are an accurate predictor, the future of prep wrestling in the Meadow City is looking pretty bright.


    Memorial Middle School’s Cardinal wrestling team captured first place in the tournament with 38 team points.


    And the Gents of the host West Las Vegas Middle School were right behind, taking second place with 32 points.


    Taos landed in third place with 27 points, followed by Pecos (22) and St. Michael’s (20).

  • Shootout rematch is Friday night

    Only perennial league favorite Metro State prevented New Mexico Highlands from winning the 2010 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Shootout in men’s basketball this past March.


    Highlands had been a preseason coaches’ poll pick to win the RMAC but it was the Roadrunners who reclaimed their usual spot near the top of the league standings, and it was the Roadrunners who went into the Shootout final as the favorite. Still, NMHU nearly pulled off the upset, ultimately falling 83-79.

  • Cowgirls get even with Zias

    With a nearly exact reversal of their scores from a couple days earlier, New Mexico Highlands topped intrastate rival Eastern New Mexico 72-62 on Monday evening at the Wilson Complex.


    It was the home opener for the Cowgirls (3-3 to start season three under head coach Tiffany Darling).


    As with the teams’ previous encounter — a 72-63 ENMU win in Portales on Saturday — Highlands took a lead to intermission. But this time the Cowgirls held on, avoiding a major dropoff in shooting accuracy in the second half.

  • Bustos breaks Grizzly record

    PUEBLO, Colo. — One night after setting a new Adams State College Division II era (1992-93 to present) single-game scoring record, senior guard Vera Jo Bustos became the career scoring leader in Adams State’s Division II history.


    The latter record was broken late in the first half Saturday evening as the Grizzlies cruised to their fifth straight win by a score of 80-56 over the University of Dubuque (Iowa) in their final game at the 2010 Colorado State-Pueblo Chuck Stephens Classic inside Massari Arena.

  • Cats over Cards

    How big can one play be?


    In Saturday’s Class 3A football semifinal between host Lovington and Robertson, the play in question was Wildcat quarterback Jacob Jameson’s 82-yard touchdown scamper late in the first quarter.
    The run and the extra point that followed gave Lovington a 21-0 cushion on the way to an eventual 42-20 final score.
    How big was that play?
