  • Senior ringers
  • Local golfers place high at senior tournaments

    Numerous Los Alamos golfers shot good enough scores to break into the top three in their respective flights at a trio of Northern New Mexico Senior Men’s Golf Association last week.
    At the tournament held at New Mexico State University’s golf course April 1, Ron Krantz and Kerry Coffelt both won their flights.
    Krantz shot a 79 gross score to win the Second Flight. He was also closest to the pin on the 17th hole.
    Coffelt shot an 80 gross to win the Fourth Flight.
    The day before the New Mexico State University tournament, Coffelt also competed at the Red Hawk golf course. He finished second in the Fourth Flight with a 97 gross score.
    On April 2, the association hosted its third tournament in three days at the Sonoma Ranch golf course. In that tournament, Los Alamos’ Ken Koch won the First Flight with a 79 gross score.

  • Isotopes drop opener to Aces

    Opening Night festivities provided plenty of excitement for fans, but the Albuquerque Isotopes (0-1) dropped an 8-2 decision to the Reno Aces (1-0) to open the 2015 season.
    After a first inning leadoff double from Brandon Barnes, the Isotopes jumped out to an early 1-0 lead. The Aces tied it up in the second before a Kyle Parker homer put the ’Topes on top in the third.
    A four-run fifth inning from Reno, highlighted by a Garrett Weber double, put the Isotopes away for good. Reno tacked on two more runs in the sixth before cruising the rest of the way.
    Parker, an outfielder, christened the new season with a mammoth home run in the bottom of the third inning. He blasted the 2-2 pitch over the scoreboard in left field, giving the Isotopes a 2-1 lead at the time.
    Parker hit 15 home runs last season with Colorado Springs, one year after matching a career best with 23 dingers.
    Making a Major League rehab appearance for the Isotopes, lefty Jorge De La Rosa tossed four innings of four-hit, one-run ball. He surrendered his only run via a second inning leadoff home run. De La Rosa’s final line included 4.0 IP, 4 hits, one run (earned), three walks and two strikeouts.

  • Sipapu offering free tickets for closing weekend

    Sipapu Ski and Summer Resort will end winter operations this Sunday, and resort officials say they’ll be running the lifts at no charge on Saturday and Sunday to celebrate Sipapu’s strongest winter ever.
    “This season has been the best in our history,” Sipapu mountain manager John Paul Bradley said. “More guests visited us than ever before, so we decided to give away lift tickets as a small token of our appreciation.”
    The mountain’s lifts will be open from 9:30 a.m. — 4 p.m.
    The area’s ski school, full-service rental shop, mountain dining and slopeside lodging will all be available.
    Sipapu is currently reporting at 23-inch base, but it’s unclear what trails will be open for the area’s final weekend.
    The 2014-2015 winter season was a busy one for northern New Mexico’s oldest ski area: Sipapu’s lifts started turning on Nov. 15, which marked the earliest opening in recent Sipapu history and clenched the 12th consecutive time the resort opened before any other ski area in the state.
    Sipapu then extended its daily operations schedule to offer guests the longest ski and snowboard season in New Mexico.
