  • Jaguars steal Dons’ thunder at...

    A frequent homecoming opponent in recent years, the Capital Jaguars are figuring out how to spoil the party for their hosts.

    Capital dashed out to a 28-0 first-quarter lead and held on for a 46-6 win over West Las Vegas on Friday night at the Herrera Complex.

    The Dons and coach Adrian Gonzales remain in search of their first victory this fall. The next chance comes Friday vs. Hatch Valley (3-1, counting two wins at a pair of small Texas schools and one over Las Cruces' junior varsity).

  • Smash hit - Record-breaking day...

    Records came crashing down Saturday afternoon at Perkins Stadium.

    So did the Highlands football team’s 10-game losing streak.

    NMHU quarterback Lance Orender set Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference records for most touchdowns (eight) and most completed passes (56) by an individual in a single game, leading the Cowboys to a 59-38 shootout win over Western New Mexico.

  • ‘Beasties’ rumble past East...

    Once upon a time, the East Mountain girls’ soccer team was responsible for ousting Robertson from the state tournament — another classic case of entrenched private school trumping public on the postseason pitch.

    But Wednesday’s match at RHS Field was far removed from that chapter in Beastie Girls history — in more ways than one.

    Robertson (6-2 overall) scored three times in the first 11 minutes and went on to an 8-0 romp.

  • Friday night huge for LV prep...

    Two of the top three Class 4A football teams in New Mexico will clash Friday night at Cardinal Stadium.

    Top-ranked Robertson and usual nemesis St. Michael’s, the No. 3 team according to the NMOTSC.com poll, kick off at 7 p.m.

    The Cardinals’ front line has been clicking, resulting in good production in the ground game. QB Dominic Lucero is averaging 115.7 rush yards a game, with Marcelo Cedillo and Joseph Paul Griego at 74.3 and 60.3, respectively.

    Consistently the flag-bearer for competitiveness among fall sports programs at New Mexico Highlands University, the school’s cross country team is off to another promising start this fall.

    The men raced to an open win in the season-opening Northern Arizona University George Kyte Invitational in Flagstaff on Sept. 6, paced by Stephen Carbajal’s 23:52 finish, good for ninth overall and second among college men.

    Then the Cowboy harriers ran fifth in the Texas Tech Red Raider Invite on Sept. 12 in Lubbock, Texas. Carbajal was 16th individually.
