  • Davie thinks Lobos will improve

    ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Bob Davie sees an opportunity entering his third season at New Mexico.
    "We're in a position for the first time to gain some traction and gain some momentum in this program," Davie said. "I really believe that. We know what the first year was. We know what the second year was. This is the third year and we have a chance to gain some momentum that will continue to multiply over the years."
    In the three years before Davie arrived, the Lobos had won a total of three games. New Mexico has won seven games since.
    Davie said the past doesn't loom over the program anymore.
    "I am really excited with where we are," Davie said. "And that's what's fun about this. We've got some talent. We've got some talent."
    Five things to watch as the Lobos continue to look ahead:
    THE OFFENSE IS THE THING: The Lobos had few problems moving the ball last season behind their spread/option offense that put a premium on quarterback Cole Gautsche's decision-making ability. In the high-scoring Mountain West, however, teams tended to surge up and down the field nearly at will.
    "Teams are going to move the ball in this league," Davie said. "I think we are very progressive on offense. I think we are ahead of the curve on offense."

    Sky Sox take walk-off win

    The Albuquerque Isotopes led after 8-1/2 innings Thursday night at Colorado Springs, but couldn’t hold onto the lead.
    Tim Wheeler came through with a RBI single for Colorado Springs’ Sky Sox as they escaped with a 9-8 walk-off win in the second game of their four-game series with the Isotopes.
    Half an inning earlier, the Isotopes rallied for three runs to take an 8-7 advantage, but Albuquerque reliever Robert Carson (2-5, 7.28 ERA) couldn’t hold the edge in the bottom of the ninth.
    In the top of the ninth, Joc Pederson hit his 31st home run of the year. That was followed up two batters later by Brock Peterson’s two-run homer after a Clint Robinson single.
    Albuquerque and Colorado Springs play their series through Saturday. Following this series, the Isotopes will be at Oklahoma City for four games before ending their 2014 season with three games against the Las Vegas 51s starting Aug. 28.
    The Isotopes are now 58-74 on the season.
    Las Vegas (74-60) has already locked up the PCL Pacific Southern division title.

  • LA ranked No. 20 in Class 5A

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper football team placed toward the bottom of the MaxPreps preseason rankings, which were released earlier this week.
    Los Alamos finished at the No. 20 spot in the Class 5A rankings ahead of its season opener, slated for Aug. 29 against Pojoaque Valley. Los Alamos has a preseason scrimmage scheduled for 6 p.m. today against Valencia and Piedra Vista.
    Teams are rated based on previous records, number of starters returning and lost, and other factors. Subjective measures, such as other polls, aren’t taken into account in the power rankings.
    Los Alamos finished with a rating of -18.6. More than half the 24 teams in Class 5A rated in negative territory and two others, Pierdra Vista and Roswell, were just above zero.
    The Goddard Rockets rated the highest in the initial poll. The Rockets finished with a rating of 34.6, more than 8 points better than runner-up in the poll and the 2013 Class 4A champion Farmington — most teams in Class 4A last season moved into Class 5A for the two-year block starting this fall.
    While Los Alamos is down toward the bottom of the rankings, it’s not alone among the teams in District 2-5A. Bernalillo is only one slot ahead of Los Alamos, while Capital is one slot below at No. 21.

  • Krohn is tops at Pace Race

    Burton Krohn was the top predictor in this week’s Atomic City Roadrunners’ Pace Race.
    This week’s Pace Race was Tuesday. It was in Lower Water Canyon Trail, starting near N.M. 4.
    Krohn finished 48 seconds off his time, which was 2 seconds better than Mark Bjorklund and 5 seconds better than last week’s winner, Steve Shook.
    The fastest finisher on Tuesday’s 1-mile course was Heather Hughes, who came in at 11 minutes, 52 seconds. Bob Weeks finished in 15:33.
    On the 3-mile course this week, Ted Romero had the best time, 22:53, while Nikol Strother finished in 24:22. There was also a 2-mile course Tuesday. The top finisher on that course was Isolina Viloria (19:57).
    The next Pace Race will be Tuesday. It will start at the trailhead directly behind the Larry R. Walkup Aquatic Center.
    The next race will include 1- and 3.3-mile trail courses and a 1-mile paved course.

  • Boston to step down from NMSU

    LAS CRUCES (AP) — New Mexico State has announced Athletics Director McKinley Boston will step down at the end of the year.
    The school said in a statement Wednesday that Boston’s contract would be extended until Dec. 31 and then a replacement will be named.
    The move came after NMSU President Garrey Carruthers finished a performance review of Boston, but declined to comment on the review.
    Boston has been the school’s athletic director since 2004. Under his tenure, New Mexico State joined the Western Athletic Conference in 2005. But the football program was left without a conference last season after the Western Athletic Conference opted to no longer sponsor the sport.
    The Aggies played independent schedule in 2013 but will compete as football-only members of the Sun Belt Conference this season.
