  • Starting 3-0?

    By Clayton Jones, NMHU Sports Information

    The New Mexico Highlands football team looks to keep the momentum of its 2-0 start rolling as the Cowboys head to St. George, Utah to take on Dixie State 6 p.m. Saturday at Trailblazer Stadium.

    The Cowboys, whose 55 points per game is tops in NCAA Division II, is going for its first 3-0 start since 2011 when that NMHU team started the season 4-0.

  • Paiz wins second consecutive...

    Las Vegas Optic reports

    Isaiah Paiz won his second cross country meet in a row in Penasco on Saturday morning.

    Paiz, a senior at West Las Vegas High, finished the boys’ varsity run in a winning time of 16:57. Paiz was a third-place finisher in the 2017 Class 4A state championship meet this past November. He won the season-opening meet in Mora on Sept. 1.

    West’s Ezekiel Ortega was the only other varsity competitor for the Dons. He raced to 11th place in 19:01.

  • Blame it on the rain: Dons,...


    It was a dark and stormy night.

    And as first lines go, the Meadow City’s two high school football teams would have probably preferred something else.

  • Running on: It's cross...

    New Mexico Highlands University’s cross country team took a tough blow when Collins Kurui — the men’s No. 1 runner for the last several years — sustained a freak injury during the Las Vegas Fiesta Run in early July.

    Kurui broke his leg while nearing the last half-mile of the 10-kilometer race, an event often used by Highlands harriers as an off-season tune-up.

    While the initial outlook was grim, a successful surgery has fueled hopes the Kenya native will make a full recovery, albeit not in time to rejoin the Cowboys.

  • Devils get their due

    Sandia Prep, the team that won the last three Class 4A state volleyball titles — the last two by sweeping Robertson in the finals — seemed to have the Lady Cardinals’ number again Thursday night at Mike Marr Gym.

    The Sundevils broke an 8-8 tie in game one to take a 25-15 win punctuated by Haley Feuerherd’s kill.

    And then after Robertson got the equalizer with a 25-11 tally in game two, Prep led a riveting game three on five separate occasions.
