  • Highlands tripped up

    Visiting Colorado-Colorado Springs and Metro State dealt Highlands’ men back-to-back double-digit losses over the weekend at the Wilson Complex.

    The Mountain Lions won 98-88 on Friday, and the Roadrunners followed suit with an 86-69 win Saturday, snapping the Cowboys’ win streak.

    Ron Lawton shined Friday with 27 points, six rebounds, four steals and two blocks for NMHU (6-10, 4-7). James Healy and Kieran Woods scored 18 each, and Marlon Johnson narrowly missed a double-double with nine points, nine boards.

  • Robertson drops Bears

    Wingate was no match for a Robertson boys’ basketball team that seems to be hitting its stride on the eve of the district opener.

    Robertson won 69-49 on Saturday at Mike Marr Gym to extend its winning streak to three games and reach 9-6 this season under coach Manuel Romero.

    It was 11-11 before Arjay Ortiz’s bucket took the lead for good. Ishmael Martinez’s foul shots and a Kasean Pryor score off a Charlie Hillis assist keyed a 20-13 tally in the first period.

  • Bern out - Lady Cards pick up...

    Jazmyne Jenkins scored a game-high 23 points to headline Robertson’s 64-26 blowout of visiting Bernalillo on Wednesday night at Mike Marr Gym.

    It was the Lady Cardinals’ 12th win in 15 games.

    Jenkins and Angelica Montoya led the way in terms of rebounding, and the entire RHS lineup contributed on the defensive end, hampering the Lady Spartans’ efforts throughout.

    In the third quarter, Robertson held Bernalillo to just two points — a bucket by Julia Beyale with 3:39 left in the period.

  • Dez to revisit no-catch opponent

    The Associated Press

    FRISCO, Texas — Dez Bryant still gets stopped all the time by people who are sure the officials blew the replay on the Dallas receiver’s famous catch that wasn’t in a playoff loss at Green Bay two years ago.

    And the 2014 All-Pro figures if the Cowboys go on to win the Super Bowl as the top seed in the NFC, that play will be what fans want to talk to him about. Even if he wins another Super Bowl next year. And so on.

  • WLV dance team raising funds

    The West Las Vegas High School dance team has been invited to compete in the Dance Team Union Nationals this February in Orlando, Florida, and is requesting the assistance of the community.

    The team is seeking any type of donations and is willing to offer community service in exchange to businesses and individuals who donate.

    A GoFundMe account has been set up online under “Donnettes trip to DTU Nationals.”

  • Battle of 518

    The first time he tried to dunk the basketball Wednesday night, Kasean Pryor ran out of runway.

    The second time, Dante Jenkins’ lead pass gave him more than enough room. The Robertson sophomore, eyeing the rim the whole way, wound up for takeoff, extended his arm and slammed the ball home.

    Pryor’s dunk put an exclamation point on an 83-68 win over visiting Mora before a full house at Mike Marr Gym.
