  • Weekend Roundup - Cowboys outgun...

    Emmanuel Lewis threw for four touchdowns — two of them in a 21-point second quarter surge for the Cowboys — and New Mexico Highlands surprised No. 18 nationally ranked Colorado School of Mines on a sunny Saturday at Perkins Stadium.

    Highlands never trailed in the football game but had to weather a late charge by the Orediggers, who put up 13 points in the final 10 minutes to whittle an 18-point deficit to five.

    NORMAN, Okla. — For John Hubert and No. 15 Kansas State, there is no sweeter payback than avenging a dream-crushing loss at the hands of No. 6 Oklahoma.

    Hubert ran for 130 yards and a touchdown, Jarell Childs scooped up a fumble and returned it for a score and the Wildcats beat the Sooners 24-19 on Saturday night to avenge a wrenching loss from last season.

  • Lobos top Aggies, end slide

    The Associated Press

    LAS CRUCES  — The University of New Mexico football team used what coach Bob Davie called its biggest game of the year to get the biggest monkey off its back.

    Kasey Carrier rushed for 129 yards and the Lobos snapped a 24-game road losing streak with a 27-14 victory over New Mexico State on Saturday night.

    New Mexico’s previous road win also came in Las Cruces when they defeated New Mexico State 35-24 on Sept. 27, 2008. The four-year road skid had been the longest current FBS streak in the nation.

  • Vatos play on

    To fellow members of the Vatos rugby club, Alani Tuineau Sione was more than a teammate.

    He was a brother.

    As can be expected, Sione’s death in a rollover accident Saturday on Interstate 25 near Santa Fe has shaken the tight-knit club to its core.

    Sione and other members of the club as well as other family members — including several young children — were returning from a rugby road trip when the crash took place.

  • Cowgirls drop Zias in four

    Former Rio Rancho star Darian Mullen connected on 18 kills while hitting .279 and added 11 digs in leading New Mexico Highlands past Eastern New Mexico three sets to one on Tuesday night at the Wilson Complex.

    It was Highlands’ home debut under new head coach Bryan Crawford, and the Cowgirls plan to stick around a while. They’ve got home matches with Western State and Adams State scheduled for Friday and Saturday evenings.

  • Dons to host homecoming

    West Las Vegas’ homecoming game Friday night against Ruidoso won’t be a walk in the park.

    The visiting Warriors, who kick off against the Dons at 7 p.m., are coming off wins over Socorro and Hot Springs, while West is looking to break a three-game skid.

    A positive is that West (0-3) and first-year head coach Robert Alarcon will be playing under the lights of their own Herrera Complex, which hosted a first-ever Friday night varsity football game last weekend.

  • ‘The Cowgirl Way’ - Endowment...

    True success doesn’t happen by accident, guest speaker Dorothy Robinson told an audience at the recent Cowgirl Way scholarship luncheon. Meaningful achievement requires the ingredients of determination, grit, courage and ethical behavior.

  • Crespin boxing in Santa Fe...

    Las Vegas professional boxer Amanda Crespin is slated to fight on Saturday night in Santa Fe at the Pueblo Pavilion.

    Angela Hayes has been announced as the opponent for Crespin, who is 5-4-1 as a pro after winning earlier this month in Pueblo, Colo.

    Tickets (from $15 up) are available at the venue itself, which is on the campus of Santa Fe Indian School. Gates open at 5 p.m.

    Headlining the card will be Albuquerque’s Raymond Montes (5-2, four knockouts) in a bantamweight battle with Tony Valdez (6-3-2, six KOs) of Española.
