  • LA comes out with win in tough game vs. Robertson

    It didn’t seem on paper the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls’ basketball game Friday night would be much more than a game the team had to get through, but it ended up being a nail-biter.
    Los Alamos thrived on its shooting from the perimeter in the first half, but when its opportunities became fewer in the second half, the Las Vegas Robertson Cardinals took advantage.
    Robertson trailed by as many as 8 points in the first half, its deficit at the break, but erased that deficit in just a little over 2 minutes to start the third quarter.
    The two teams battled neck-and-neck the balance of the way, but the Hilltoppers escaped Griffith Gymnasium with a 46-42 victory.
    Amber Logan came up huge for Los Alamos Friday night, particularly after the Cardinals (6-11) keyed on Ashlynn Trujillo and the Hilltopper big girls down low, limiting their chances throughout.
    Logan hit a huge 3-pointer early in the fourth quarter, giving Los Alamos a 41-37 edge at the time, then, with under 6 seconds left and the teams separated by just 2 points, connected on two huge free throws that finally sewed up the victory.
    Logan finished with 21 points, 14 of those in the first half as she came up with 4 3-pointers.

  • Program helps teens identify with community

    Opportunities for work in the teenage years can be limited. Youth Mobilizers, a program administered by the Family YMCA and funded by the Juvenile Justice Advisory Board (JJAB), seeks to provide teens with a way to identify community issues and address them through projects.
    Teens offer an outside perspective that can make all the difference in new and innovative growth. Including teens in important community issues, Youth Mobilizers then empowers them to change a perceived issue by employing them to fix it.
    Recreating the atmosphere of the job application process, a youth fills out a job application through the Family YMCA. This is followed with an interview to complete the application process. A project is then proposed by the teen that must meet one of the program’s goals:
    • Celebrate teens and their interests/accomplishments
    • Further teen skills and experience in an area of teen interest
    • Empower teens voice in the community regarding topics that are important to them
    After the project is approved, an adult from the program is paired with the teen to provide guidance through the process. The pair then meets and constructs a plan with the details of the project. Goals, timetables, and quality are discussed and included in this plan.
