THE NEW MEXICO Sports Hall of Fame is asking the public to assist with voting in the next class for induction. One can only vote once on their website and 75% of the Board of Directors has to approve of the candidate for consideration. At least 5 of the 101 current worthy candidates are going in? In no particular order: 1.) Billy Moya (has done so much for golf). 2.) Rick Wright (hopefully this Journal “retiree” is writing a book). 3.) Cody Unser (courageous). 4.) Fred Hultberg (he’s everywhere). 5.) Holly Holm (nothing further need be said).

ENMU since has entered the national Division II poll at No. 17. — Randy, Journal
