  • Never break a prom date

    Ah! Spring is the time when a young man’s fancy — and an old man’s plain.

    True, that’s a slight distortion of the old saying, the last part having to do with “thoughts of love.”

    But forgive the looseness of my rendering of that quote as we delve into the prom fever that’s on many people’s minds during this time of rising temperature (but still precious little rain).

  • Cowgirls' big finish wins RMAC outdoor track meet

    Rallying from nearly 20 points down, New Mexico Highlands women’s track and field team came through when it counted this past weekend, earning the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference outdoor title in Golden, Colo.

    Taneika Elliston of NMHU was named Athlete of the Meet after racking up 26 points to contribute to the Cowgirls' winning total of 157.

    In addressing the team afterward, head coach Bob DeVries called his athletes “the small squad with hearts bigger than the mountains to the west of the track.”

  • Lucero, Cardinals frustrate Horsemen

    Twice, the St. Michael’s Horsemen threatened to steal control — of the game and the District 2-4A baseball title — in Saturday’s game one of a baseball doubleheader at Robertson.

    Twice, they maneuvered baserunners into scoring position.

    Twice, Cardinal ace Brandon Lucero sent them away frustrated.

  • Headed to NMMI: Jenese Fulgenzi a key player in title reign

    Four straight Class 1A-4A state tennis championships for the Robertson girls’ program — and Jenese Fulgenzi has been on board for all of them.

    It’s probably not a coincidence.

    Fulgenzi has been integral in the state team competitions throughout the four-year run. In the individual portion of the state tourneys, she has been an especially tough doubles player. She and sister Jaci teamed to win state in doubles in 2015, then finished as runners-up the following season in an all-RHS final vs. their first cousins Brandelyn and Lauren.

  • Redbirds seek tennis repeat

    Robertson’s tennis teams like the view from the top.

    They plan to stay there a while longer.

    They’ll get their chance to defend their dual state team championships this week. The team brackets will play out Friday and Saturday at Albuquerque Academy, where the Lady Cardinals will look to make it five titles in a row and the Cardinal boys seek a repeat.

    But first up are the individual state championships Wednesday and Thursday at Jerry Cline Complex.
