  • WLV runners take on Duke City

    When the original plans to run in Capital’s Jaguar Invite this coming Saturday fell through, the West Las Vegas cross country teams replaced that meet with one in Albuquerque.

    Considering the squads’ successes in the Duke City to date, that might not be a bad Plan B.

    This past Saturday, West’s boys placed third and the WLV girls were fourth in Volcano Vista’s meet on Albuquerque’s west side.

  • More votes in poll for Cowboy...

    The New Mexico Highlands University football team continues to receive votes in the American Football Coaches Association poll of NCAA Division II programs.
    Unofficially, the Cowboys are 32nd in the nation according to the AFCA poll released Monday.
    Highlands, which survived an unexpected challenge from winless Western State Colorado in Saturday’s homecoming game to win 31-17, is now 5-1 overall and 4-0 in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference.

  • Robertson soccer teams boast...

    As if the cold and rain wasn’t enough to contend with, Robertson’s Brandon Trujillo absorbed a jarring shot to the upper body from a collision with a Taos player in Saturday’s district match at RHS Field.

    Both players tumbled immediately to the frigid grass. Trujillo, who’d seemed to take the worst of the crash, nevertheless hopped to his feet almost as quickly as he’d fallen. He resumed play shortly thereafter.

  • Cowboys avoid upset

    Abdul Kanneh’s fourth-quarter interception may have saved homecoming for New Mexico Highlands University.

    The Cowboys’ defensive back picked off a Brian Duboski pass in Highlands territory — on what could’ve been a go-ahead drive for Western State Colorado with four minutes left — and returned the ball 36 yards to the Mountaineer 24-yard line.

    The turnover led to a critical insurance score by the Cowboys, who went on to win 31-17 on a chilly Saturday afternoon in front of a packed crowd at Perkins Stadium.

  • Weekend Roundup - Lady Cards...

    A 4-0 shutout of visiting Taos this past Thursday gave the Robertson girls’ soccer team an important win over a chief district rival.

    “As expected, it was an extremely competitive battle between the two teams,” said RHS head coach Ian Williamson.

    After allowing two goals in the first eight minutes, Taos put up a fight, with a physical, hard-playing defense funneling the ball upfield.

    But the Lady Cardinals were ready, and goalkeeper Ashley Jaramillo was credited with 12 saves while preserving a shutout.
