  • Perea a four-time camp MVP

    For a fourth consecutive season, Las Vegas’ C.J. Perea was named an All-American and camp MVP as part of the Offense-Defense All-American Football Camp.

    Perea, who earned the honor as a quarterback and defensive end, plays for the local youth travel football team, the Las Vegas Outlaws.

    The most recent Offense-Defense camp was held June 24-27 in Dallas at the campus of the University of Texas-Dallas.

    Previously, Perea earned MVP honors at the camp in Denver (twice) and in Albuquerque.

  • Soccer club shines in 3v3 event

    Las Vegas’ own Meadow City Soccer Club endured 100-plus degree temperatures recently, taking two squads to join 96 other teams from New Mexico, Colorado and Texas in the state’s largest two-night 3v3 soccer tournament in Roswell.

    The Ninjas won gold in their division by remaining undefeated at 5-0-1 and by outscoring their competition 48-17.  Christian Larrañaga scored a hat trick to help his team to a 3-1 victory in a hard-fought, much anticipated rematch with long-time rival Atletico from Artesia in the final.

  • For the health of it

    Few sporting events bring quite the array of participants that the Las Vegas Fiesta Memorial Run boasts every summer.

    Sunday’s run was no different.

    The oldest of them — in their upper 70s and early 80s — inspired spectators and fellow competitors by making steady pace in their races.

    The youngest were in diapers, being pushed along in strollers, all wide-eyed at the spectacle around them.
    Most hailed from Las Vegas and the surrounding area, but a few came from faraway hometowns like New York City to participate.

  • El Paso hounds Topes third...

    Garrett Hampson’s score from third off a fielder’s choice reach by Drew Weeks gave Albuquerque a 1-0 lead early Monday night in El Paso.

    But that would be all the offense the visiting Isotopes (41-42) could muster in an eventual 6-1 defeat to the red-hot Chihuahuas (45-39), who’ve taken over first place in the division.

    Allen Craig’s two-RBI double in the third took the lead for El Paso, and Diego Goris scored on an error the next inning.

  • Senzatela stingy in Topes win

    Antonio Senzatela (3-1) herded the River Cats of Sacramento like a champ on Thursday, holding them to three hits and one walk over seven and two-thirds innings as Albuquerque won 3-1 at Isotopes Park.

    The somewhat uncommon defense-oriented win gave the Isotopes (40-39) a split of their four-game home series.

  • Locals finish with five district...

    Las Vegas Little League rolled to three District 4 championships in head-to-head matchups against host La Plaza on Thursday as the six-day tournament event came to a close at Rodriguez Park.

    LVLL won in 11-12 softball, 11-12 baseball and 9-11 baseball brackets, in each case defeating La Plaza in the championship game.
