County commission honors 'Cinderella Aggies' baseball team


The Doña Ana County Commission issued a proclamation at its June 14 regular meeting honoring the New Mexico State University Aggie baseball team for winning the 2022 Western Athletic Conference championship. “The Cinderella Aggies” entered the tournament with a below .500 regular season record but recorded a perfect 4-0 record during the tournament to win the WAC championship. With the tournament championship, the Aggies earned an automatic berth to the NCAA tournament. There, they lost to host Oregon State in extra innings in the Corvallis regional before being eliminated by Vanderbilt. Head coach Mike Kirby was on hand at the meeting to accept the proclamation.
