ALBUQUERQUE – The (-/RV) University of New Mexico men’s basketball team (3-0) snapped the Loyola-Chicago Rambler’s (2-1) seven-game winning streak in a 75-51 victory in WisePies Arena Nov. 18.

“I’m really proud of my guys,” stated Craig Neal. “I thought they played really, really hard. I have a lot of respect for Porter, I think he’s a great coach. They have a really good, veteran team. I didn’t think the score was going to be like it was, but we just played well and with a lot of energy. I’m just really proud of my guys for doing everything I’ve asked them to do. They’ve really been able to take scouting reports and do some things that were impressive...

ALBUQUERQUE — Hannah Johnson had the final word as she spoke to the Johnson Center crowd after playing her final home match as a Lobo on Senior Night.

Johnson dished out a game-high 35 assists and connected with Gullatt for the game’s final kills as New Mexico volleyball turned away Utah State in three sets, 25-18, 27-25, 25-21 on Senior Night.

“At game point, I knew I had to give it to Skye,” Johnson said. “I wanted to do everything in my power to get...

It was quite an invitation to a team of Indigenous Australians that had traveled several thousand miles to play a mostly local team of Indigenous Warriors, especially based on a feature video that was distributed in over 100 countries. But the invitation was accepted by the team from Down Under and Gallup’s Rugby maven Timaris Montano put together a group of former Gallup High players to meet the challenge.

It was more of a ‘fun’ event than an actual contest. The Australians had played together for some...

Moving with the Music

It was an action-packed event on Nov. 7 at Gallup High School as hundreds of dancers performed in the Fourth Annual Turquoise Classic. This competition drew participants and fans from around the state, and the enthusiasm for the efforts was overwhelming, and not just from ‘Dance Moms.’

The two large speakers by the announcer’s stand vibrated with the music selected by each group, building the beat and encouraging everyone to become a part of what was happening in front of them.

As expected, the local dancers were at the top and collected most of the awards, although teams from Los Lunas, Piedra Vista, St. Pius, and Aztec provided plenty of competition. In the end...
