  • Cowgirl spikers find win column

    Snapping a five-match losing skid, the New Mexico Highlands volleyball team scored an emphatic straight-sets win over visiting Colorado-Colorado Springs on Saturday night at the Wilson Complex.

    Each of the games was competitive, but the Cowgirls prevailed 25-20, 25-20 and 25-21 to move to 8-10 overall and 2-7 in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference. The Mountain Lions dropped to 7-9 and 3-5, respectively.

    Darian Mullen paced Highlands in kills for the second night in a row, connecting on 13 in 27 attacks and a .370 percentage.

  • No. 12 FLC stops NMHU

    One goal was all that separated the nationally ranked No. 12 Fort Lewis Skyhawks and host New Mexico Highlands on a cool Sunday afternoon at Perkins Stadium.

    Fort Lewis’ score came roughly one hour into the match. Jordan Hix dribbled a pass through to Emma Cannis, who finished for her fourth goal of the season.

    That was it, as the Skyhawk defense quieted the much-improved Cowgirl front line. Highlands managed only four shots on goal, and all four were handled by Caitlyn Espinosa at the FLC net.

  • Beasties aim for title

    Tuesday’s match at Taos  will likely decide the district girls’ soccer championship, and Robertson is in position to win  it again.

    The Lady Cardinals would have to win by two to do so. That’s because Taos prevailed 2-1 in the teams’ first meeting.

    Since then, Robertson has feasted on Pojoaque Valley (a 6-0 shutout this past Wednesday in Pojoaque) and Santa Fe Indian (a 7-0 romp Saturday at RHS Field) to stay in title contention.

  • Homecoming heartbreak

    Battered and bruised but still putting up a fight, the West Las Vegas football team fell to Raton by a 33-16 count Friday night at the Herrera Complex.

    On an evening when former National Football League player Preston Dennard and scores of West alumni made their way to the campus, the Dons scored points for gallantry but not enough on the scoreboard to overcome a solid, senior-led Tigers squad.

    Near-misses characterized the night for West Las Vegas (1-5 overall, 0-1 District 2-3A).

  • Metro downs Cowgirls

    NMHU Sports Information

    Highlands lost in three sets against Metro State in Friday’s volleyball match at the Wilson Complex. The Cowgirls are 1-7 in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference and 7-10 in overall play.

    Through the last of the first set the Cowgirls and Roadrunners went back and forth but the Cowgirls just could not close the set and the Roadrunners took the first set 25-20.

  • Keep on ‘keepin’ on
  • Cowboys run out of time again

    Just a tantalizing 15 yards away from the Western State end zone, what would’ve been a game-winning drive by New Mexico Highlands was denied on Saturday afternoon, and the host Mountaineers held on for a 33-27 upset in Gunnison, Colo.

    Highlands dropped to 2-4 overall and 1-3 in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference. The Mountaineers picked up their first win of the season, climbing to 1-4 and 1-2.

    The Cowboys host a homecoming game vs. Adams State on Saturday evening at Perkins Stadium.

  • Cowgirls go pink - NMHU women’s...

    SANTA FE — The New Mexico Highlands University women’s basketball team spent its Saturday morning volunteering at the 2013 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event in Santa Fe.  

    The Cowgirls, led by head coach Tiffany Darling, have made a habit of giving back to the community by taking part in service projects.  

  • Dons hope for homecoming boost

    It’s been a difficult start for the West Las Vegas football team, but the Dons and head coach Robert Alarcon can take solace in the fact that the more meaningful games have yet to be played.

    The District 2-3A schedule opens Friday, and whatever troubles the squad has had to this point can be all but forgotten with a good effort against visiting Raton.

    The Tigers are West Las Vegas’ guests for homecoming game, which kicks off at 7 p.m. at the Herrera Complex.
