  • Class 1A-3A state track preview...

    Several Pecos and Mora athletes are among the lead contenders for state championships in this weekend’s Class 1A-3A state track and field meet, which gets under way Friday morning in Albuquerque.

  • College roundup: Cowboys win 3...

    Keeping its fading RMAC playoff hopes alive, the New Mexico Highlands baseball team (18-28, 13-19) won three of four games at Adams State over the weekend.

    Shannon Hunt’s Cowboys have one series left – a four-game homestand against Colorado Christian this Friday and Saturday at Brandt Park. They’ll likely have to win at least three and get help from Adams State to make it into the last playoff spot.

  • Mora baseball takes district...

    MORA -- Mora baseball seniors Alonzo Aragon and Javier Branch got to walk off their home field one last time as District 5-2A champions on Tuesday evening, as parents, coaches and teammates gave them hugs and high fives.

  • Several local winners in...

    Highlights from the Horsemen Invitational this past Saturday at St. Michael’s in Santa Fe:

    BOYS

    100-meter dash: 5. Darion Williams, West Las Vegas, 12.11; 9. Jonah Ortiz, Robertson, 12.44; 10. Deleon Rodriguez, Robertson, 12.52; 13. Samuel Garcia, West Las Vegas, 12.75; 16. Fabian Valdez, Robertson, 12.92; 19. Jeremy Cordova, West Las Vegas, 13.05; 23. Martin Moreno, Robertson, 13.08; 27. Billy Chang, Robertson, 13.45; 30. Zachery Schmidt, Robertson, 13.73; 36. Eric Duran, West Las Vegas, 15.81

  • Cowgirls' big finish wins...

    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...

    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...

    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.
