• ENMU expects penalty
    PORTALES (AP) — Eastern New Mexico University's president says he expects the school to receive some form of punishment from the NCAA because of eligibility issues it discovered with many student-athletes. Steven Gamble tells the Portales News-Tribune that he expects the college's eligibility issues to be cleared up by mid-November. The issues were not the fault of students and the university reported them to the NCAA after problems were discovered. The problems range from lack of signatures on required forms to a lack of degree plans or needed credit-hours to play sports. The university has 11 affected sports. Only non-NCAA sanctioned rodeo teams are not affected. ENMU is reviewing all of its 408 current student-athlete files and notifying the NCAA of those where it discovers problems.

  • UNM’s Nare named MW Player of Week
    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Liz Nare has had a season of firsts so far, including her first career goal and first career assist.   Monday, Nare picked up her first Mountain West Defensive Player of the Week award as well. She was named for her play in UNM’s 1-0 win over New Mexico State University. Nare is the second Lobo in three weeks to earn a conference honor, as Jordan Craig was named MW Offensive Player of the Week after scoring three goals in wins over SMU and Texas. Originally from Lake Forest, Calif., Nare anchored the UNM defense in the 1-0 double-overtime victory over in-state rival NMSU. The Lobo defense allowed just three shots and none from inside 25 yards of the goal.   Nare drew an assist on the winning goal, as her long pass found Jordan Craig at the edge of the box, who settled the ball and passed to Elba Holguin for the winning shot. That game was Nare’s 50th consecutive start — she hasn’t missed a game in her career. Despite playing in the back, Nare is tied for third on the team in scoring with a goal and two assists. She held down the fort with teammate Lauren Irwin in front of Kelli Cornell as UNM saw a change in the defensive back line on Sunday due to an injury.

  • Aggies win big in season opener
    LAS CRUCES — The New Mexico State University football team opened its season with a big 49-19 victory over Sacramento State at Aggie Memorial Stadium. Sophomore quarterback Andrew Manley and sophomore wide receiver Austin Franklin led the Aggie offense with career-high performances. Manley finished with a career-high 367 passing yards and three touchdowns on a 14-of-22 showing through the air.  Franklin recorded a career-high 236 receiving yards and a pair of touchdowns. Defensively, junior linebacker Trashaun Nixon led the team with 15 tackles, his first career double-digit tackle performance.  Junior linebacker Bryan Bonilla and senior safety Davis Cazares also finished with double-digit tackles.  Bonilla finished with 11 tackles, his second career double-digit tackle performance, while Davis finished with 10, his first career double-figures performance. Following a missed field goal attempt on Sacramento State's first drive, the Aggies took advantage, capping a five play, 79-yard drive with a 52-yard Manley pass to Franklin for a touchdown.  Manley again found Franklin for a 50-yard pass that put the ball on the Hornets' 19-yard line early in the second quarter.
