  • Armijo is Kansas-bound

    Richard Armijo’s got a little bit of old school in him.

    From his disciplined approach at the plate to his polite deference to his elders, the recent Robertson graduate strikes a contrast to many (though not all) of his peer group.

    Even his walk-out song, “God’s Gonna Cut You Down,” by Johnny Cash, plays out in stark relief from the hip-hop and other new-school jams favored by teammates. It makes quite the impression nonetheless.

    Las Vegas’ 11-12 (Majors) softball team survived the first part of a two-week gauntlet in Gallup and will now play in Los Lunas Friday through Sunday.
