North Sports: Week in Review

FACILITIES
UPGRADE: The Wilson Complex at New Mexico Highlands University underwent a nearly $400,000 facelift with a new basketball court sporting the upgraded Cowboys logo installed, as well as new bleachers and an 84-square-foot video board. The bleachers seating 5,600 cost $235,000, with the 12-foot by 7-foot video board by Score Vision costing $106,907 and the new floor, built by Norcon of New Mexico, coming in at $56,182.

STATE CHAMPS: The Santa Fe Little League Junior softball team won the state championship Monday with an 8-4 victory over Paradise Hills. Santa Fe would have advanced to the Southwest Region championship later in the month in Waco, Texas, to play against Colorado, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Texas-East and Texas-West for a shot at going to the World Series, but the event was canceled because of COVID concerns.
