  • Prodigal son returns

    So we meet again.

    Art Abreu Jr., who once starred as a tight end and a member of the formidable defensive front seven for the Robertson Cardinals during their run in the early 2000s, is coming back to Cardinal Stadium for a Friday night football game.
    Only this time, he’s on the sidelines as head coach of the rival Taos Tigers.

  • It’s Kansas City vs. New York

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Anyone arriving a little early to a New York Mets game this season has probably witnessed “The Walk.”

    Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom or another emerging ace striding in from the bullpen following pregame warmups, with pitching coach Dan Warthen right alongside — and the rest of that fearless rotation trailing just behind.

    For opposing hitters, it’s become an imposing march to impending doom.

  • RMAC: Grizzlies reign

    On Halloween week, the Adams family is back to its usual spot haunting the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference cross country standings.

    Adams State, owner of trophy cases full of national championships in the sport, swept to men’s and women’s RMAC team titles this past Saturday at Cattails Golf Course, its home venue in Alamosa, Colo.

    New Mexico Highlands had mixed results in the meet, with the men finishing ninth and the women 14th.

  • Beasties are back

    Despite having one of the younger lineups in the state, the Robertson girls’ soccer team had a winning record most of the regular season before finishing 7-7 overall.

    On Sunday, the squad and head coach Jeff Houdek learned their efforts weren’t in vain.

    Robertson was awarded the No. 8 seed in the Class 1A-4A state tournament, which begins this weekend at campus sites around New Mexico. The Lady Cardinals AKA Beastie Girls will host No. 9 Monte del Sol (10-8-1) at 1 p.m. Saturday as part of the first round.

    Cross country

  • RHS runners sweep in Desert...

    Makayla Quintana picked up her fourth individual championship of cross country season, leading the Robertson girls to a team title this past Friday in the Desert Academy Wildcat Invitational in Santa Fe.

    “Almost got it under 20, in the 19s,” the Robertson freshman said Monday.

    To be exact, Quintana clocked in at 20 minutes and 4.58 seconds, a full 51 ticks faster than runner-up Julie Andreas of Bosque in the 3.01-mile course.

  • Dons’ lead dissipates as Taos...

    T.J. Madrid scored one offensive touchdown and one defensive touchdown to help Taos knock off visiting West Las Vegas 38-21 in the teams’ district opener Friday night in Taos.

    West (3-5, 0-1) had led 13-7 at one point in the third quarter. But the Tigers took control by taking advantage of a special teams miscue and then making things happen with a forced fumble, recovery and return all on one play.

  • All Cardinals in blowout at...

    Plenty of punctuation Friday night in a statement game for the Robertson Cardinals.

    Connor Houdek sacked Pojoaque’s quarterback Chris Quintana in his own end zone for a safety that put the dot on the exclamation point in a 51-0 mercy-rule shortened game on the Elks’ Jacona campus.

    The Cardinals won their sixth consecutive game to improve to 6-2 overall and 1-0 in District 2-4A. They return to Cardinal Stadium Friday for a reunion with former RHS standout Art Abreu Jr., now the head coach of Taos.
