  • Hargrave 8th in Greco-Roman...

    NMHU Sports Information

    Former New Mexico Highlands wrestler Easton Hargrave recently took eighth at 85 kilograms at the 2015 UWW University National Greco-Roman Wrestling Tournament the last weekend of May in Akron, Ohio.

    He finished with a 2-3 record.

    After a 19-11 technical fall loss to Konner Witt, Hargrave rebounded by pinning Andrew Thomas in only 33 seconds.

    The 33-second pin was the fastest pin for the tournament in the weight class and one of only three falls in less than a minute.

  • Triggers happy - Robbers come up...

    Orlando Reyes and Steven Taft hit home runs and four Train Robbers in total recorded multiple hits Friday night, but it wasn’t enough to overcome Trinidad in a 15-9 defeat.

    Four Las Vegas errors hurt the cause as the host Triggers stayed in a close battle with Santa Fe for the top spot in the division. Going into Saturday night, Trinidad led the Northern Division with a 12-3 record; the Fuego was second at 8-4, followed by Las Vegas (5-10) and league newbie Garden City (4-12).

  • Eight locals on All-District 2-...

    Albuquerque (23-33) blew a 1-1 stalemate open with nine runs in a three-inning span late in the game Friday night, taking a 10-2 win over visiting Iowa (28-26).

    Cristhian Adames singled, doubled and tripled to go 3 for 5 and scored three times for the Isotopes. Drew Stubbs accounted for three runs batted in while going 2 of 3. And Kyle Parker hit 2 for 4 and added two RBI to his team-leading total of 29.

  • Robber gets 2nd helping

    As the lone returner from last summer’s Las Vegas Train Robbers roster, Kyal Williams has made himself right at home on the team, in the Pecos League and in his adopted part-time hometown.

    Williams is off to a strong start, too. In addition to solid work at first base, he’s carved out a spot in the Train Robbers’ pitching rotation. And he’s one of the more reliable hitters in the order.

  • Fowler’s return fuels Vegas...

    Who said pitchers can’t hit?

    Greg Fowler, who started on the mound for Las Vegas on Tuesday night in a 14-13 shootout win at Trinidad (Colo.), homered and doubled to finish 2 for 4 with three RBI and two runs in aiding his own cause.

    Fowler’s home run came with two on and nobody out in the top of the second inning and staked the Robbers to a 4-0 lead. Steven Taft had broken the ice with a run in the first inning.
