  • NMHU posts offseason golf rates

    The Gene Torres Golf Course at New Mexico Highlands University has announced its offseason rates.

    The rates are in effect until Feb. 28, and can be viewed on the university Web site under www.nmhu.edu/golf .

    “We will be open this winter, weather permitting, and play will be on temporary greens,” said Steve Watson, Highlands University golf pro.

    The course is also selling gift certificates for instruction and play during the holiday season.

  • Dons put freeze on Ruidoso

    It didn’t take West Las Vegas Dons long to put their letdown in the Taos Invitational behind them.

    Tuesday night, the team throttled visiting Ruidoso 77-60, staying in control on both ends of the floor and improving to 2-3 overall.

    West senior Adrian Rivera led all scorers with 29 points. He has surpassed the quarter century mark in points in four of the Dons’ five games.

  • Dons fall to top-rated Sundevils...

    Española Valley outscored West Las Vegas 28-13 in the decisive second quarter to blow open a close game in the first round of Capital High’s Al Almendariz Classic Thursday in Santa Fe.

    The end result was a 77-55 win for the Sundevils, the top-ranked team in Class 4A.

    Turnovers and poor shooting — particularly at the free-throw line — hurt the Dons.

  • 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.

    New Mexico Highlands 174-pounder Jesse Feinsod snared fifth place in the prestigious Cliff Keen Invitational Saturday in Las Vegas, Nev., continuing a strong start to his senior season.

    Overall, the Cowboy wrestling team placed 25th of 48 teams. NMHU amassed 31 team points.

    Nebraska (124.5 points), Cornell, Minnesota, Pittsburgh, Purdue and Michigan — winner of three of the last four Cliff Keen tourneys — were the top six.

  • 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.

  • TRIPP'S TRIPPIN':...

    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.

  • Cowgirls break into win column...

    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.
