  • Cardinals a mix of experience,...

    The success of the Robertson boys’ basketball program in recent seasons has meant a consistent early-season test of the Cardinal baseball team’s depth.

    With several key teammates extending their hoops season by a couple weeks, the rest of the RHS sluggers have had to pick up the slack until the team is made whole in mid-March.

  • Dons, new coach are road warriors

    Chemistry shouldn’t be an issue for the West Las Vegas baseball team this spring.

    Much of the Dons varsity has ample experience playing together and for Ryan Gabaldon, who’s taken over the program as head coach.

    Not only had Gabaldon been a varsity assistant and middle school head coach for several years, he’s also coached many of his current players since they were members of his La Plaza Little League Cubs and All-Star lineups.

    FISHING REPORT, March 26:

  • West sweeps SFIS

    Adrian Valdez earned an “A” for accuracy on Monday.

    Valdez went 5 for 5 at the plate and scored three runs to help West Las Vegas baseball win 16-8 at Santa Fe Indian.

    The Dons are 4-3-1 under first-year head coach Ryan Gabaldon. All eight games have been played on the road.

    “Overall a fair game,” Gabaldon said of Monday’s victory. “I still think we could do better. We could be a powerhouse if we play a complete game.”

  • Opening rounds had highs, lows

    Florida Gulf Coast was the breakout star of the weekend, alley-ooping its way on to the national stage to capture everyone’s attention. You probably watched the Eagles crash the round of 16 like everyone else. Well, there were 63 other teams playing last weekend, too.

    La Salle broke through as well. Bluebloods such as Duke and Michigan State were big winners as well. So the next round will have something for everyone.
