  • Oh so close - Chadron nips...

    The Cardiac Cowboys finally let one get away.

    With New Mexico Highlands trailing by just three points, Chadron State defender Cole Montgomery stepped in front of intended receiver Kevon Williams and stole the football with 15 seconds left, preserving a wild 36-33 victory for the visiting Eagles on Saturday at Perkins Stadium.

    Highlands had led by 10 at halftime and by as much as 13.

    But Chadron moved the ball expertly, one short pass or modest run at a time, and chipped away before finally passing the Cowboys.

  • Warriors come out and play

    Robertson’s defense showed some ferocity Friday night in a prep football clash with third-ranked Ruidoso, and for a fleeting moment, it gave the Cardinals control of the game.

    A 9-yard fumble return by Devin Chavez resulted in a Robertson touchdown three minutes into the fourth quarter, and Dominic Lucero’s 2-point conversion gave the Cards a 21-18 lead.

    Then the Warriors came out to play-yay.

  • RMAC meet: Cowboys 5th, Cowgirls...

    Ismael Samano earned third-team all-Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference honors and led the New Mexico Highlands University men to a fifth-place team finish in Saturday’s RMAC championship cross country meet in Colorado Springs.

    The Highlands women tied for seventh in the 14-school event; the women’s race was a 6K, while the men ran an 8K.

  • Lady Don spikers sweep Taos

    It might be developing chemistry, or it might be simply increasing experience working together as a unit this season.

    One way or another, the West Las Vegas volleyball team is beginning to look increasingly cohesive, at least on the court.

    And that’s got head coach Mary Bustos smiling.

    “We’re getting better,” she said Tuesday night after her Lady Dons (11-4) swept visiting Taos at Gillie Lopez Gym.

  • Chase intensifies - Eagles pose...

    Highlands’ biggest challenge to date, at least as far as the 2012 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference football schedule is concerned, takes place this Saturday at Perkins Stadium.

    Chadron State is 5-2 overall, having lost only to non-conference foe Montana State and the current No. 1 team in the nation, Colorado State-Pueblo; the latter contest was decided by a touchdown, 45-38.

  • Rankings stay much the same

    Robertson and West Las Vegas football teams stayed in their same positions on NM Preps’ weekly gridiron poll released late Sunday.

    The Cardinals (3-3 overall, 1-0 District 2-3A), who defeated Pojoaque Valley 24-15 this past Friday, stayed at 11th. They play host to No. 3 Ruidoso (6-1) this Friday evening at Cardinal Stadium.

    The Dons (1-6, 0-1) picked up their first win in a 38-6 romp at Santa Fe Indian to hold on to the 16th spot. West is off this weekend.
