CNJ staff

FORT SUMNER — The Fort Sumner Foxes were awarded a forfeit in tonight’s game at Springer when the Red Devils asked out of the game due to lack of numbers.

Fort Sumner (8-2), ranked No. 1 in Class 1A, was already assured a berth in the state playoffs beginning next week. Seeding for the eight-team bracket will be determined in a Saturday night meeting at the New Mexico Activities Association headquarters in Albuquerque.

Clovis JV routs Hobbs — Jaden Isler scored on a 40-yard run on the first play from scrimmage and later caught a 60-yard TD pass from Jordan Mendoza as the Clovis High junior varsity completed an 8-1 season with a 42-0 rout of Hobbs on Thursday night at Leon Williams Stadium.

Manuel Robles added a 60-yard TD run for the Wildcats, who led 28-0 at halftime. Other touchdowns were added on runs by Taylor Muse, Miles Manasco and Kolt Marren.
Robert North went 6-for-6 on PAT kicks for the Cats.

Zias fall to Kingsville — At Kingsville, Texas, sophomore Shaday Smith’s 19 kills led four Texas A&M-Kingsville players in double figures in that category and the Javelinas rallied for a 29-31, 30-26, 19-30, 30-20, 15-12 win over Eastern New Mexico University in Lone Star Conference South Division volleyball Thursday night.

With the win, the Javelinas (10-17, 5-3 South) clinched third place in the division and a berth in the LSC tournament Nov. 3-5 at Edmond, Okla. The loss eliminated the Zias (7-17, 2-5) from postseason consideration.
