  • NMHU men move to 2-0 in preseason

    Defense set up offense aplenty on Sunday as the New Mexico Highlands men’s basketball team throttled Virginia-Lynchburg 97-63 before a sparse but spirited crowd at the Wilson Complex.

    The Cowboys repeatedly used heads-up defense to force turnovers and score in transition, contributing to a 52 percent field goal accuracy in the team’s second win of the preseason.

    Erick Vega paced the scoring output with 19 points. Roland Fitch again had a double-double with 15 points and 10 boards, and Stuart Sullivan sank five threes to finish with 15 points.

  • Highlands pulls away from Jackets

    SPEARFISH, S.D. — The Highlands Cowboys surged past Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference newcomer Black Hills State University 46-31 on Saturday in Spearfish, S.D., keeping the team alive in the league title hunt.

    Highlands (7-2 overall, 6-1 RMAC) battled both the Yellow Jackets and the wet and cold elements en route to the win. Despite having six turnovers in the game, the Cowboys regrouped offensively with one of their more balanced efforts.

  • Vegas Bowl Jr. - Taos shuts out...

    Except for a backbreaking six-minute span that began in the final minute of the third quarter Friday night, West Las Vegas played Taos quite evenly, showing signs of progress in what has been a trying season.

    That window of time was all it took for the visiting Tigers to pull away, however. Taos is 6-2 and looking to grab the District 2-3A title, and West is 1-7 and wondering how close it could have been.

    Andres Lujan led a good pass rush for the Dons with a couple of sacks, and Frankie Palacio and Joshua Hidalgo also came through with heads-up defensive play.

  • Second half boosts Cards

    All three facets of Robertson’s game were clicking Friday night in the Cardinals’ 30-14 triumph over longtime district rival Raton.

    The Cards’ dynamic duo in the backfield, Dominic Lucero and James Gonzales, each rushed for two touchdowns and combined for more than 200 yards on the ground.

    The RHS defense had young players making a large impact as well.
