  • Bees sting Topes with first...

    For a day at least, the Albuquerque Isotopes found themselves in first place.

    The purple caps and gowns are back in storage, and the summer session at New Mexico Highlands is days away.

    But the NMHU women’s track and field team isn’t quite ready to call it a spring just yet.

    The Cowgirls and head coach Bob DeVries are on their way to Charlotte, N.C., for this weekend’s NCAA Division II outdoor nationals, hunting for medals and looking to expand upon more than four dozen All-American honors.

  • DeVries' success is no...

    In his 26th year as a head coach at New Mexico Highlands, Bob DeVries has become rather adept at scoring cross country and track and field meets on the fly, while they’re still under way.

    As he coached the Cowgirls in this month’s Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference outdoor championships in Golden, Colo., DeVries tallied the points his athletes earned in each event, marking their progress to what would be an eventual league title.He even likened the skill to counting cards in the casino, like “Rain Man.”

  • Isotopes inch closer to Bees

    A pair of sacrifice flies — one by Josh Fuentes, the other by Stephen Cardullo — lifted the Albuquerque Isotopes to a 6-4 win over Salt Lake on Monday in the opener of a four-game set at Isotopes Park.

    The win allowed Albuquerque (24-21) to chip into Salt Lake’s lead in the Pacific Coast League’s Pacific Southern Division to start a pivotal series at The Lab. The Bees (25-20) saw their edge reduced to one game.
