  • RHS third in Cardinal Classic

    Even without several top wrestlers, the Robertson Cardinals are dangerous.

    Missing key personnel, RHS managed a third-place team placing just behind Aztec and Silver in this past weekend’s 22-team Cardinal Classic at Mike Marr Gym.

    Three Robertson grapplers emerged with individual titles. In the finals, Gabe Lovato (215 lbs.) edged Kirtland Central’s Santana Tunney, Daniel Martinez (160) scored a technical fall over Belen’s Anthony Burgueno, and Rico Montoya (103) pinned Belen’s Pat Armijo.

    The Cowboys, coached by Joe Harge, are 13-4 overall and 9-4 within the Central Region. They are 9-4 in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference.

    Jamie Allen sank 10 of 11 free throws — including a crucial pair with 32 seconds left — and finished with 14 points to lead Robertson to a 49-43 upset of  Class 3A’s third-ranked Hope Christian on Saturday night at Mike Marr Gym.

    The win, which is Robertson’s second against a top three team this season, begins a welcome four-game homestand.

  • Dons put up fight

    Jordan Lopez got a good look at what would have been a game-winning basket Friday night, but fate was unkind to his shot, and Ruidoso (9-8) held on to a razor-thin 62-61 win in boys’ basketball action at the Gillie Lopez Gym.

    West Las Vegas (4-12) led much of the evening in a contest that never saw either side lead by more than nine points.

    Mike Martinez, T.J. Esquibel and Brandon Quintana all scored late in a topsy-turvy first period as the Dons grabbed a 16-13 advantage.
