Two of Class 4A girls’ basketball’s premier programs — No. 1 Portales and No. 2 Hope Christian — were in town over the weekend, providing a monumental challenge for the locals.

Robertson led several times and was within four points with two and a half minutes left Saturday in an eventual 39-30 defeat to the Huskies.
