  • Fiesta Run - Hundreds take part...

    Nearly 300 competitors took part in the annual Las Vegas Fiesta Memorial Run this past Sunday morning in town.

    While most of the runners and walkers hailed from Las Vegas and the surrounding area, others came from as far away as Alexandria, Va., Philadelphia, Watertown, N.Y., and Santa Cruz, Calif. Ages ranged from infants — pushed along the course in strollers — to 81-year-old Theodore Rogers in the 10-kilometer run and 76-year-old Carol Winkel in the 5K run. Several runners as young as 8 braved the adult courses.

  • Caillouet keeps on hitting for LV

    Jordan Caillouet’s hot baseball bat didn’t cool on the trek from Garden City, Kans., to Santa Rosa.

    The Las Vegas Train Robber infielder hit 5 for 5 with a home run and four runs batted in on Tuesday night in an 18-10 loss to the Triggers.

    Caillouet had hit two homers and two doubles in a 4-for-4 showing Sunday. Monday’s scheduled home game in Las Vegas was cancelled due to rain.

    Ryo Haruyama also homered for Las Vegas on Tuesday in a home game switched to Santa Rosa High’s baseball diamond.

  • Vegas’ Mathew Baca in Top Gun...

    For Mathew Baca of Las Vegas, summer is not time for rest and relaxation.

    The Robertson junior-to-be was one of the premier running backs recognized in the recent regional Football University camp in Denver. Based on his performance there, he was invited to take part in the Football University Top Gun Showcase July 16-18 in Dublin, Ohio.

    “This is the best collection of high school football talent in one place at one time,” said Erik Richards, national recruiting coordinator for All American Games, which stages Football University and the showcase.

  • Robbers, Topes both rained out

    Monday night saw scheduled games for both the Las Vegas Train Robbers and Albuquerque Isotopes scratched due to weather.

    The Robbers were slated to host one of their last several home games — a tilt against the Pecos League North’s leader, Trinidad — at Rodriguez Park. But steady rains throughout Monday in the Meadow City left the field unplayable.

    Las Vegas was scheduled to play the Triggers in a “home away from home” game on Tuesday night in Santa Rosa, then return to the road.
