  • Bradley learned lessons from...

    Even the most trying of seasons can  bring valuable rewards — though they may not be the type of rewards measured in the win column or marked by any tangible trophy.

    Abbey Bradley has learned this first hand.

    The Robertson senior inherited her volleyball team’s primary on-court leadership role this past offseason. As the veteran presence amid a team of less experienced players, Bradley had to step up in a different role with a different dynamic than any she’d experienced before.

  • RHS coach on late WLV...

    On this Thanksgiving holiday, Judith Trujillo says she is grateful for the opportunity to have learned from Mary Bustos.

    Even if Bustos’ Lady Dons didn’t give up a set to Trujillo’s Lady Cardinals on the volleyball court this fall.

    Trujillo said her players, faced with their impromptu matchup against West Las Vegas in the first round of the state tournament just hours removed from the loss of Bustos, wondered aloud how to approach the match.

  • The Perfect Storm - Robertson...

    Breaking a win streak that had reached 23 games, the Robertson Cardinals stunned No. 1 St. Michael’s 22-13 on a frigid Saturday afternoon at Christian Brothers Athletic Complex in Santa Fe.

    Robertson’s ouster of the defending state champions set up a trip to Taos in the Class 3A state football semifinals this coming weekend.

  • NMHU runners 24th at nationals

    Boasting the first lineup consisting entirely of native New Mexicans ever to qualify for nationals, the New Mexico Highlands University men’s cross country team finished 24th of 32 schools in Saturday’s NCAA Division II national championships held in Spokane, Wash.

    The Cowboys landed two runners in the top 100 — Mora native Henrique Chavez and Rio Rancho’s Jesus Mendoza.

    Chavez, a senior All-Regional competitor in his final collegiate event, finished 88th in 32:03.9. Mendoza ran close behind, clocking a 32:13.1 to finish 98th.

    The Associated Press

    FRESNO, Calif. — With the running game grounded because of injuries to its two leading rushers, New Mexico had no chance of keeping up with Derek Carr and Fresno State.

    Carr threw for 527 yards and a school-record seven touchdowns in his final regular-season home game to help the Bulldogs clinch a spot in the Mountain West title game with a 69-28 victory over New Mexico on Saturday.

  • Cards tackle No. 1 Horsemen again

    Last time Robertson and St. Michael’s met on a football field, the day was beautiful and the game was ugly.

    They play again Saturday afternoon at Brother Abdon Field, and the Cardinal faithful are hoping the reverse will be true this time around.

    Robertson (6-5) certainly turned things around from an earlier defeat last Friday night, when the team routed Portales 36-0 at Blackwater Draw. The Rams had won 14-6 in the season opener back in late August.

  • Hargrave wins title in Greeley

    Led by Easton Hargrave’s championship performance in the 174-pound weight class, New Mexico Highlands University wrestlers collected 10 top-six finishes this past weekend at the Old Chicago Open.

    The tournament was hosted by the University of Northern Colorado this past Saturday in Greeley, Colo.

    Highlands head coach Doug Moses took a robust squad of 26 wrestlers to compete in the Old Chicago Open, and the Cowboys led the tournament with 15 pinfalls.
