A LOOK BACK AT THE TOP SPORTS STORIES IN NORTHERN NEW MEXICO

CYCLING

TOUR TIMES: Fortunato Ferrara of Santa Fe earned his fifth victory in eight attempts on the 45th annual Tour de Los Alamos, finishing the 27-mile race in three hours, 29 minutes, 19 seconds. Mindy Caruso won the women’s 18-mile race in 2:45:00.

ATHLETICS

HIRED: Española Valley High School has a new athletic director in Phillip Roybal. He replaces interim AD Teresa Flores, who recently took the position after Eric Vigil resigned the post. Roybal comes north from Hobbs, where he had been vice president for student services at New Mexico Junior College since 2013. He was the Hobbs football coach from 2002-09.

UPCOMING THINGS TO SEE OR DO

CYCLING: Up and more up is what Sunday’s Santa Fe Hill Climb is all about. Starting at Fort Marcy Park, cyclists will climb 3,300 feet over the course of 14.7 miles to the Ski Santa Fe parking lot. It’s the 18th year for the event, which will be the USA Cycling New Mexico regional hill climb championship. For more information, see usacycling.org/events/flyer.php?permit=2017-1933.

HOOPS: The University of New Mexico men’s basketball program will be holding a youth basketball camp Saturday and Sunday at St. Michael’s High School. The camp is open to boys and girls entering grades 1-8. For more information or to register, see coachpaulweir.com.

GOLF: The 20th anniversary of the Fore Kids Golf Tournament will be celebrated Aug. 25 at the Marty Sanchez Links de Santa Fe. Created by former city councilors Peso Chavez and Molly Whitted, the tournament has brought much-needed recognition to the youth of our city by generating revenue to create scholarships for local youths at the golf course and the Genoveva Chavez Community Center. Throughout the years of the tournament, 36,146 scholarships have been awarded. For more information or to sign up, call 955-4400.
