By The Staff

Few athletes managed to grab the attention of fans during the 2012-13 academic year like Erin Kirk. She certainly grabbed the attention of the media.
Erin Kirk was named the female Athlete of the Year by the Los Alamos Sports Association. She was awarded a plaque and a T-shirt to commemorate her pick as the top athlete at Los Alamos High School during her senior year.
LASA is an informal group made up of members of the Los Alamos sports media, which includes KRSN AM 1490’s sports announcers Gene Mortensen, Rick Picard, Mike Katko, station co-owner David Sutton and John McHale and Mike Maez-Cote of the Los Alamos Monitor.
LASA plans to make the Athlete of the Year award an annual event to recognize LAHS’ top senior sports performers.
Kirk was recognized at a ceremony Monday at De Colores restaurant.
The male Athlete of the Year selection for the 2012-13 season was Arnoldo Oritz, although Ortiz didn’t attend Monday’s ceremony.
Ortiz was the only four-sport athlete at Los Alamos last year. He was the top rusher on the Hilltopper football team in the fall, a third-place finisher at the state tournament in wrestling and a starter for the hockey team in the winter, and competed in track and field during the spring.
