    Isotopes hold on to win 8-7

  • Records shattered at JMTR

    A bunch of course records fell at Saturday’s Jemez Mountain Trail Runs.

    The 2012 JMTR event, in its seventh year, took place Saturday. Runners started on North Mesa, wound their way toward the Valles Caldera and back in three different distances.

    Diana Finkel of South Fork, Colo., set a new all-time best in the women’s 50-mile competition, but would need that performance to hold off a top local athlete, Erica Baron, to take this year’s women’s title.

    Finkel finished the 50-mile race in 9 hours, 26 minutes, 29 seconds. Baron posted a time of 9:29:17. Both marks bested the previous record in the women’s 50-miles, set by Darcy Africa in 2007.

  • Manning on Target at First...

    New quarterback Peyton Manning ran the offensive practice during the Denver Broncos workout Monday. After missing last season with a neck injury, it was the first time the media witnessed Manning throwing the ball since last year's training camp.

  • I'll Have Another wins...

    BALTIMORE (AP) — I'll Have Another did just that, winning another Triple Crown race with even more flash and dash than he did in the Kentucky Derby.

    By bolting past Bodemeister — again — this time in Saturday's Preakness, all that stands in the way of racing glory is the Belmont Stakes in three weeks.

    Win that and the smooth-striding 3-year-old will find himself in the company of Secretariat, Seattle Slew and Affirmed, the last to win thoroughbred racing's most coveted prize in 1978.

  • Ealey makes her mark once again...

    ALBUQUERQUE — It will be a long time before Los Alamos High School will see another athlete the like of Chase Ealey. If ever.
    It will certainly be a long time before the Hilltoppers will have an athlete as successful.
    Ealey, a two-sport star for the Hilltoppers, put an exclamation point on a career filled with highlights last week at the Class 4A track and field championship meet. For the second straight year, Ealey won three individual state titles and had a hand in taking a pair of relay state titles.
    Ealey picked up 26 points, once again becoming the top-scoring athlete in 4A, topping her total of 23.5 one year earlier.

  • Pacers take 2-1 edge over Heat

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — LeBron James grabbed a seat on Miami’s bench, lowered his head and stared down at the floor. Way down.
    Roy Hibbert had 19 points and 18 rebounds, George Hill scored 20 and Danny Granger 17 as the Pacers, showing more balance, toughness and togetherness than favored Miami, throttled the malfunctioning Heat 94-75 on Thursday night in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.
    Overlooked during the regular season and given little chance to upset the reigning East champions, the Pacers took a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series.
    Game 4 is Sunday at raucous Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
