  • State softball: Robertson...

    Robertson's dream of a state softball championship came to an end Thursday in Rio Rancho, as No. 3 seeded Cobre edged the No. 4 seed Lady Cardinals 5-4 in an elimination game.

    The Lady Cards, who received a first-round bye and won their state opener by beating No. 5 Santa Fe Indian 11-2 Wednesday, lost to No. 1 Silver by a 9-0 tally early Thursday.

    Cobre scored in the sixth inning to pull ahead and held on for the one-run win, advancing to meet Portales in the playback bracket. It was the Indians' third win over Robertson in as many meetings this spring.

  • On to the next race: Miguel Coca...

    The raw talent has always been there for Miguel Coca.

    But the will to win and the drive to become a more disciplined, focused runner have evolved over time.

    The West Las Vegas senior — who concluded his high school athletic career with the Class 4A-6A state track and field championships this past weekend in Albuquerque — has taken the next step in that evolution by signing with Iowa Central Community College.

  • College roundup: Cowboys, Riders...

    Justin DeHoog roped a single to right center in the bottom of the 12th inning, enabling James Cordova to score the walk-off winning run in New Mexico Highlands’ 8-7 tally against Colorado Christian on Friday at Brandt Park.

    The Cowboys have shown a penchant for pulling off such late-game and extra-inning heroics this season. They just haven’t found the win column enough.

  • State playoffs: Lady Cards in...

    West Las Vegas became one of the last eight softball teams remaining in the Class 4A state tournament by eliminating Hope Christian 12-2 on Wednesday morning at Cleveland High in Rio Rancho.

    The Lady Dons struck first before the Huskies closed within 3-2 by the end of the second inning. But the rest of the game belonged to West, which advanced to play No. 2 seed Bernalillo Wednesday afternoon.

  • Cardinal boys golf places 3rd in...

    Robertson’s return to the state golf tournament – as an entire team – proved fruitful, as the Cardinals placed third behind champion Portales and runner-up Hope Christian.

    The two-day Class 1A-4A tournament concluded on Tuesday afternoon at the par-72 Canyon Club at Four Hills in Albuquerque.
