  • Home at last - Lady Cards take...

    West Las Vegas softball coach Lucas Griego predicted the road to the District 2-3A championship will go through the Meadow City this spring.

    And he said the outcome of his Lady Dons’ series with Robertson could decide the champion.

    After an error-riddled start to the teams’ doubleheader this past Thursday at WLV field, the Lady Cardinals own the advantage. Robertson exploited a poor defensive game in the opener to win 10-7. The second game had West leading 8-6 in the fifth inning before umpires suspended the action due to darkness.

  • Robertson sluggers, miscues...

    Errors loomed large over Saturday’s East-West baseball doubleheader, won by Robertson High in a sweep, 5-4 and 14-4, at West Las Vegas’ field.

    It was the first home appearance of the season for the road-weary Dons and head coach Ryan Gabaldon. The Cardinals and Ken Sandoval hadn’t been in town since the first couple of games in early March.

    West, which bombarded Capital 22-0 and 22-5 on Thursday in Santa Fe, had positive vibes going into the weekend.

  • LVLL opens season

    A robust day of youth baseball, softball and tee-ball greeted the third weekend of spring 2013 as Las Vegas Little League hosted Opening Day ceremonies and games on Saturday at Keyes Park.

    A combination of balmy sunshine  and light breezes under skies that shifted from overcast to mostly clear made for fine conditions.

    Four Minors Division games were scheduled on Opening Day beginning at 8 a.m. Teams in the division: Thunder, Bats, Paw Sox, Rivercats, Threshers, Sandgnats, Red Wings and Owlz.

  • Wolves bite Cowgirls

    Ending their visitors’ four-game winning streak, the Colorado State-Pueblo ThunderWolves softball team swept a Saturday twinbill against New Mexico Highlands.

    The Cowgirls dropped to 15-24-1 overall and 7-17-1 in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference as of Saturday night. The teams were to play another doubleheader on Sunday.

    CSUP (21-9, 18-7) did most of its damage in the third inning of game one, when Carlie Lucas rocked a grand slam to left field, turning a modest 2-0 score into a 6-0 wall.
