    WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — Five-time champion Venus Williams was ousted in the quarterfinals at Wimbledon on Tuesday, losing 6-2, 6-3 to 82nd-ranked Tsvetana Pironkova of Bulgaria.

    The White Rock Senior League All-Star softball team actually had to come from behind to win Saturday morning’s contest against Pojoaque.

    But the 1-0 deficit after half an inning Saturday would be about as much trouble as White Rock would get into through the first two games of its tournament.

    White Rock’s Seniors rolled to two crushing wins over their two tournament opponents, Santa Fe National and Pojoaque and can close out a District 1 Little League championship and a trip to the state tournament with a victory today.

  • Running: Rees has best...

    It was a tough night of predicting for the pace race runners Tuesday, but Dan Rees made the best guess of the race.

    The New Pipeline Gutbuster course in North Community made for difficult predictions in Tuesday’s pace race. Only five runners finished within 50 seconds of their projected finish time, only one of which came on the 3-mile course.

    The pace race is a weekly event hosted by the Atomic City Roadrunners.

    Rees had an error of just 11 seconds to earn the victory.

  • Fishing: Trout taken from...

    ABIQUIU — More than 270 native Rio Grande cutthroat trout were removed from Polvadera Creek Tuesday to protect the population from possible eradication by the 16,257-acre South Fork Fire.

    The South Fork Fire is burning approximately 20 miles west of Española. Crews with the Department of Game and Fish and the Santa Fe National Forest used electroshocking equipment to stun the fish so they could be transported to Seven Springs Hatchery.

  • Tennis: Queen makes first visit...

    WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — Queen Elizabeth II made her first appearance at Wimbledon in 33 years Thursday — applauding Briton Andy Murray as he won his second match and greeting a giddy Serena Williams, who showed off her curtsy.

    Wearing a white dress with a blue coat and matching hat, the 84-year-old queen braved scorching temperatures as she greeted onlookers and met former champions such as Billie Jean King and Martina Navratilova before meeting the tennis tournament's top seeds.

  • Running: Clark, Finkel win 50-...

    Nick Clark bested fellow Fort Collins, Colo., resident Ryan Burch to win the 2010 Jemez Mountain Trail Runs 50-mile race.

    The Jemez Mountain Trail Runs, which feature a 50-mile, 50-kilomenter and half marathon, were run May 22. The courses run through the hills around Los Alamos.

    In all, 653 runners entered the race this year, with about 30 percent of those braving the 50-mile trek. Of the 193 that started the 50-mile race, 100 finished the course.

    The most popular race this year, with 289 entrants was the half-marathon.

  • Tennis: Nadal misses queen but...

    WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — The King of Clay passed up a chance to meet the Queen of England.

    Rafael Nadal had another priority — winning at Wimbledon.

    Queen Elizabeth II visited the All England Club for the first time since 1977 and met a small group of current and former players, including Roger Federer and the Williams sisters. Nadal was invited, but his practice schedule conflicted, and he wanted to be in top form for his second-round match later Thursday.

  • Tennis: Venus Williams looking...

    WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — Venus Williams took the Wimbledon stage in a Tina Turner dress and quickly found her groove.

    Williams' latest tennis outfit won't cause the international stir created by her French Open corset, but it was eye-catching: a white dress with a skirt that might set a Grand Slam record for frills.

    Her game also looked good as the five-time Wimbledon champion beat Rossana de los Rios in the first round Monday, 6-3, 6-2.
