  • Alarcon new West football coach

    West Las Vegas didn’t have to look far to find its next head football coach.

    Robert Alarcon, a veteran Dons football assistant and the coach of the WLV middle school team, was named to the job this week and will succeed his former boss, Mike Ulibarri.

    West Las Vegas Schools Superintendent Ruben Cordova confirmed the hire on Monday afternoon.

    “I had four names recommended to me,” Cordova said. “I interviewed all four, and based on their responses, I made the decision to go with Robert.”

  • Cowgirls square up

    Climbing out from an 8-4 hole is easy when the bats are swinging the way the Cowgirls’ were on Sunday afternoon.

    New Mexico Highlands’ softball team rallied to win 15-9 over Fort Lewis and wound up with a four-game series split over the weekend at Cowgirl Field.

    Shellie Broyles’ Cowgirls are 24-26 overall and 16-20 in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference. They close the regular season at Adams State this weekend in Alamosa.

  • Isotopes, Omaha split

    Albuquerque (4-8) gave away another lead in the late innings Monday, falling 12-10 to Omaha in the matinee finale of a four-game set, the first at Isotopes Park this spring.

    The Isotopes took charge with four runs apiece in the third and fourth, going up 8-7. But the Storm Chasers burned the ‘Topes with five runs in the eighth — including Max Ramirez’s three-run bomb — and held their hosts to just two scores after that.

  • Disc golf showcase on tap

    One of the fastest growing sensations in the sports world is coming to the Las Vegas area this weekend.

    Rociada will be host to the Pendaries Spring Classic, a disc golf tournament featuring some of the sport’s elite performers, Friday through Sunday.

    Following a doubles tourney on Friday, the Classic begins in earnest at 9 a.m. Saturday at the Pendaries Golf Course.

    Among those entered in the tourney are Nathan Doss and Valerie Jenkins, ranked No. 1 in men’s and women’s professional disc golf.

  • Riders draw closer to .500 mark

    Luna Community College

    The Luna Community College baseball team is close to accomplishing what many thought was unthinkable a month ago — finish the season with a .500 record and make the playoffs.

    The Rough Riders overwhelmed Lubbock Christian junior varsity over the weekend 13-3, 10-0, 31-11 and 13-0 to bring their record to 19-23 on the year. They now have won seven straight and are seeking to sweep El Paso Community College this Friday and Saturday on the road.

  • ‘Pokes finish sweep

    Chris Prokupek scattered four hits and two walks over six strong innings Sunday, leading the Highlands Cowboys to a 6-3 win over Colorado School of Mines in the finale of their four-game Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference baseball series.

    Prokupek carried a shutout into the seventh inning but the Orediggers managed to load the bases with the help of a walk, an error and a hit batter.

    Reliever Oscar Almeida, who’d go on to collect his 10th save, got the next two outs to rescue the ‘Pokes, who led 2-0 at that point.
