  • Cowgirls get even with Zias

    With a nearly exact reversal of their scores from a couple days earlier, New Mexico Highlands topped intrastate rival Eastern New Mexico 72-62 on Monday evening at the Wilson Complex.


    It was the home opener for the Cowgirls (3-3 to start season three under head coach Tiffany Darling).


    As with the teams’ previous encounter — a 72-63 ENMU win in Portales on Saturday — Highlands took a lead to intermission. But this time the Cowgirls held on, avoiding a major dropoff in shooting accuracy in the second half.

  • Bustos breaks Grizzly record

    PUEBLO, Colo. — One night after setting a new Adams State College Division II era (1992-93 to present) single-game scoring record, senior guard Vera Jo Bustos became the career scoring leader in Adams State’s Division II history.


    The latter record was broken late in the first half Saturday evening as the Grizzlies cruised to their fifth straight win by a score of 80-56 over the University of Dubuque (Iowa) in their final game at the 2010 Colorado State-Pueblo Chuck Stephens Classic inside Massari Arena.

  • Cats over Cards

    How big can one play be?


    In Saturday’s Class 3A football semifinal between host Lovington and Robertson, the play in question was Wildcat quarterback Jacob Jameson’s 82-yard touchdown scamper late in the first quarter.
    The run and the extra point that followed gave Lovington a 21-0 cushion on the way to an eventual 42-20 final score.
    How big was that play?

  • Late surge lifts Zias

    A second-half shooting slump cost the New Mexico Highlands Cowgirls on Saturday in a 73-62 defeat at intrastate rival Eastern New Mexico.


    The teams will have a quick rematch tipping off at 5 p.m. Monday at Highlands’ Wilson Complex.


    The Cowgirls (2-3) shot 40 percent in the first half Saturday and enjoyed a 30-26 halftime lead against the Zias (1-2).

  • Lady Dons beat CHS

    Miranda Martinez led all scorers with 24 points and Vanessa Lucero recorded a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds to lead West Las Vegas over Class 4A Capital 57-46 in a girls’ basketball season opener on Nov. 23 in Santa Fe.

  • Wingate sharpshooter helps spoil...

    Saturday night was supposed to be all about the West Las Vegas boys’ basketball team and its season opener at Gillie Lopez Gym.
    But Lambert Michalski turned the night into his own personal highlight reel.


    Michalski scored 19 points in the first half and finished with 25 total to lead the visiting Wingate Bears to a 71-57 victory.


    Michalski opened the evening’s scoring by nailing a three-point basket and he accounted for the Bears’ first seven points, as well as 11 of their 17 in the first quarter.

  • Big hurdle: No. 1 Wildcats

    Robertson probably has a better football team than it did on Sept. 3.
    Just how much better will be determined on Saturday.


    The Cardinals are back in the Class 3A state semifinals and one game away from the state championship. But they’ll have the unenviable task of playing No. 1 Lovington on the road at 1:30 p.m. Saturday.


    Two local radio stations are expected to broadcast the game live.

  • Entry pass
  • Going places

    Up to now, the longest trip Las Vegan Kianna Gallegos can recall in her 13 years has been to Albuquerque and back.


    So her recent selection to play on a U.S. team that will compete internationally in Germany in the summer of 2011 is an understandable source of excitement for the youngster.


    Gallegos, a pitcher, will play as part of America’s Team, a group of youth softball players on something of an ambassador’s mission.

  • Wrestling legend Gable to speak

    Because of NCAA rules in existence at the time, Dan Gable was not allowed to wrestle for Iowa State his freshman year.


    Gable didn’t do too badly for himself once he got a chance to wear a Cyclones singlet for real. He won 181 of 182 collegiate matches, dropping only the last one.


    Then he went on to international competition and a lengthy and wildly successful run as a coach.
