  • ENMU women defeat Cowgirls

    A scoring drought of nearly seven minutes doomed the New Mexico Highlands Cowgirls Wednesday night in a 79-64 loss at Eastern New Mexico in Portales.

    Highlands fell to 1-8; ENMU is 7-5.

    The Cowgirls played evenly with the host Zias early on and courtesy of Oliana Seanoa’s jumper, trailed just 27-24 with 3:59 left in the first half. But eight straight missed shots and eight turnovers by NMHU helped Eastern go on a 9-0 run that ended on Jessica Armijo’s layup nearly three minutes into the second half.

  • Gutsy win as Lady Cards scratch...

    A dramatic six-point surge by Robertson in the last 43 seconds erased a four-point deficit and gave the Lady Cardinals a 49-47 breakthrough against Santa Fe Capital on Thursday night at Mike Marr Gym.

    It’s a much-needed shot of confidence for Robertson (2-3), which had lost its last three games.

    Let me start off by congratulating the Highlands women’s basketball team on their first win of the season Tuesday night over Panhandle State 71-50. What a go, ladies.

    Hey, another congrats to Richard Martinez, for accepting the Robertson football job. It is nice to see those who have paid their dues and are loyal to their school get these rewards.

    Better late than never.

    Delayed 24 hours by bad weather, New Mexico Highlands University’s women’s basketball team broke into the win column for the first time this season 71-50 over Oklahoma Panhandle State.

    The victory is the first for the Cowgirls (1-7) under new head coach Tiffany Darling.

    Oliana Seanoa turned in another fine performance from the perimeter, hitting 10 of 22 shots for a game-high 25 points.

  • WEEKEND ROUNDUP: Cardinal...

    Daniel Martinez took home an Outstanding Wrestler honor for the second time in as many tournaments this wrestling season, helping his Robertson Cardinals to a team championship in the Jaguar Invitational over the weekend in Santa Fe.

    Martinez, who wrestled at 152, and David Rael (119) won their weight classes to lead RHS. Miguel Garcia (130), Joseph Dominguez (135) and Wally Diaz (140) made it to their respective championship matches before falling. And Johnathan Lucero and Dmitri Almanzar finished third at 125 and 160, respectively.

  • Rangerettes roll past Penasco,...

    Two trips over the mountain.

    Two nice victories.

    The Mora Rangerettes are 2-1 after beating Peñasco’s Lady Panthers 53-44 last week and then nipping Taos 39-38 in a rugged overtime clash this past weekend.

    At Peñasco, the Rangerettes led 25-20 at the half before outscoring the Lady Panthers 17-2 in the third quarter for a cozy 42-22 advantage. Peñasco rallied, outscoring Mora 21-11 in the final period, but it was not enough.

  • Villanueva's Lucero in 10th...

    Martin Lucero, originally from Villanueva, and his partner JoJo LeMond of Andrews, Texas, are in 10th place in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association national finals’ team roping competition.

    Lucero currently lives in Stephenville, Texas, but retains strong family ties to the Las Vegas area.
