  • Mora spikers No. 2 seed in state

    Mora High School's volleyball team reaped a No. 2 overall seed in this week's Class 2A state tournament after winning 17 matches and repeating as district champion.

    The Rangerettes open with pool play against Mesa Vista and Jal at 8 Thursday morning at Rio Rancho High School. Based on finish in pool play, the bracket will seed teams again, and first round action begins later that day.

    Mora advanced to the state semifinals in 2015.

  • Lady Cards rally to district...

    SANTA FE -- After Robertson's volleyball team got down early and then lost game one 25-21 Saturday night, host St. Mike's had reason to feel good about its chances in the District 2-4A tournament final.

    Not so fast, the Lady Cardinals said.

    Getting contributions from across the lineup, Robertson rallied to win the next set, 25-23. And the next one, 25-9. And the next one, 25-17.

  • Robertson, West football teams...

    The lone unbeaten team in Class 4A football, Robertson (10-0) will be the No. 1 seed in the state playoffs.

    West Las Vegas (6-4) also earned a spot in the postseason as the No. 11 seed and will have an instant rematch with No. 6 St. Mike's this coming weekend in Santa Fe. For the Dons , it's the first playoff appearance since 2003, according to the school.

    The Horsemen won 47-8 earlier Saturday afternoon in the regular season finale.

    The New Mexico Activities Association announced the state brackets late Saturday.

  • BREAKING : Panthers repeat; Mora...

    RIO RANCHO -- The Pecos Panthers became back-to-back state cross country champions on Saturday, getting a one-two individual finish from Julian Garcia and Josh DeHerrera.

    It's a repeat title in Class 3A boys' cross for Garcia, who finished in 16:46.

    Also Saturday, Mora's Natalia Marrujo won the Class 1A-2A individual girls' state cross country championship, surging to the front of the pack in the final mile. Marrujo, who battles asthma, raced strong and crossed the finish line in 20:14.

  • Friday night football :...

    A 57-6 beatdown of visiting Pojoaque Valley completed a 10-0 regular season for the Robertson football team Friday night at Cardinal Stadium.

    The game was called in the middle of the third quarter.

    The Cardinals, who clinched their third straight District 2-4A title last week, are 10-0 overall and 6-0 in district. They are expected to be seeded No. 1 in the Class 4A state playoffs, which will be announced late Saturday by the New Mexico Activities Association.

  • Future bright for Beasties...

    The Beastie Girls’ season came to an end Thursday morning at the Bernalillo Soccer Complex, the program’s hopes of reaching the state semifinal round for a third time spoiled by the No. 1 Sandia Prep Sundevils.

    Sandia Prep (19-1-1) won 8-0, scoring four unanswered goals in each half.

  • Rangerettes rope in district...

    The Questa Wildcats gave Mora all it could handle for three contentious sets of playoff volleyball Thursday night.

    But as they say, it wasn’t the Rangerettes’ first rodeo.

    Even many of Mora’s younger players are veterans of postseason play, and the team’s collective experience under that type of pressure paid off in the District 5-2A championship match at Montoya Gym.
