LA's championship team to be honored

-A A +A

Boys basketball > Team from 1964 celebrating its 50th anniversary

The 1964 Los Alamos Hilltopper championship boys basketball team, along with two other teams from 50 years ago, will be honored at a reunion luncheon next month.
The New Mexico Activities Association, the body that oversees most interscholastic high school activities in the state, will host the 25-50 Year Reunion Luncheon March 14 at the Embassy Suites in Albuquerque.
The luncheon will be held as part of the state basketball championship tournament, which is scheduled for March 11-15, also in Albuquerque.
Those who were players, coaches, managers or served those teams in some capacity and have not already been contacted regarding the ceremony are asked to get in touch with the NMAA at 505-923-3280.
In 1964, Los Alamos won its first basketball title — girls basketball was not a recognized sport at the time — defeating St. Michael’s 76-55 in the Class A championship game. The Hilltoppers, who had a won-loss record of 21-7 that year, were coached by Bob Cox.
It would be 36 years before Los Alamos claimed another basketball state title.
Other teams that will be recognized at the ceremony are Class B champion Hatch and Class AA champion Roswell from 1964. The boys and girls championship teams from 1989 will also be honored.
