Cruces sweeps Ruidoso

In a show of dominance, the Bulldawgs swept Ruidoso, 25-21, 25-11, 25-17 Tuesday night in Las Cruces. The Bulldawgs were playing the 6-2 with much success–sophomore Lexi Dotson shared setter duties with Sarah Fountain. You might recall the Bulldawgs tried this last season with not-so-spectacular results.

It looks like the young offense is beginning to click. Read more about the Cruces win over Ruidoso in the Las Cruces Sun-News.

Aggies head out for another tourney

Having just finished up their sweep of UTEP, the Aggies are back on the road for the LSU Tiger Classic. NMSU will face the likes of Rice, North Carolina and No. 21 ranked LSU. Read more about the Aggie’s opponents at the NM State Sports site.

Valencia county teams hit the road, tough tournaments

Article discusses Valencia and Los Lunas’ trials and tribulations at the Moriarty and Sweet 16 tournaments, respectively. Although I wouldn’t call Alamogordo a “5A powerhouse” just yet (they’re working hard), Los Lunas played tough–tough enough for Felicia Wortman to earn a spot on the Sweet 16 all-tournament team.

El Paso scores needed

I’m looking for scores from El Paso-area games from last night, especially the Montwood/Eastwood game. Amber, where are you?
