  • Dons: On to quarters

    For the first time since 1983, West Las Vegas baseball is in the state tournament quarterfinals.

    No. 11 seed West rallied to defeat No. 6 Robertson in a best-of-three series to open the Class 4A state baseball tournament over the weekend at Whorton Field.

    The Dons won game one 9-5 Friday after trailing early. Robertson rebounded to win game two on Saturday by a 10-4 count. But West prevailed 12-2 in the decisive game three.

  • Lady Cards roll to next round

    For the fourth time this spring, Robertson softball put Taos away via the mercy rule.

    This time, it meant moving on to the second round of the Class 4A state tournament.

    The Lady Cardinals (19-4) scored the game’s first 16 runs Friday and won 18-3 after just three innings of play, eliminating their fellow District 2-4A denizens in the opening round of state. It was Robertson’s last home game of the year.

  • State champs! Robertson tennis...

    On Thursday, the Fulgenzi clan celebrated. Then on Saturday, their larger, extended Robertson tennis family joined the party.

    Warren Jr. and sister Brandelyn earned twin Class 1A-4A state singles championships, and cousins Jaci and Jenese Fulgenzi conquered the girls’ doubles ranks for the second consecutive year. That was Thursday at the Cline Tennis Complex.

    Two days later, they helped lead Robertson to dual team championships in boys’ and girls’ tennis at Albuquerque Academy’s campus.

  • Pecos’ Sandoval, C de Baca run...

    Ryan Sandoval of Pecos crossed the finish line first in the Class 3A boys’ 1-mile run, earning a state championship with a time of 4:43.62.

    Then teammate Cassandra C de Baca did the same in the girls’ 2-mile.

    The Panthers’ 1,600-meter medley foursome won state as well over the weekend in Albuquerque. They’d qualified for finals Friday with Joshua Lopez, Carlos Cordova, Jason Henderson and Sandoval.
