  • OT field goal puts LSU over Alabama

    TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — No. 1 LSU gained the inside track to the BCS title game, beating No. 2 Alabama 9-6 on Drew Alleman’s 25-yard field goal in overtime after a fierce defensive struggle in which neither team reached the end zone Saturday night.
    The Crimson Tide missed four field goals, including Cade Foster’s 52-yard attempt after Alabama got the ball first in the extra period. LSU appeared to win the game on Michael Ford’s run around left end after taking a pitch, but he stepped out of bounds at the 7.

  • LA gets No. 12 seed in 4A state playoffs

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper football team’s big finish at the end of the 2011 regular season didn’t afford it much respect from the state’s seeding and selection committee.
    Los Alamos was saddled with the No. 12 seed in the upcoming state Class 4A football playoffs, the lowest seed in the tournament.
    By virtue of its 12 seed, the Hilltoppers (6-4) will be on the road in the first round. They will meet the fifth-seeded Los Lunas Tigers this weekend.
    For the fourth year in a row, District 2-4A will send just a lone representative into the playoffs and for the second year in a row, it is the lowest possible seed.

  • ´Toppers sweep Spartans at home

    The dominance by the Los Alamos Hilltoppers in District 2-4A volleyball continued with a big win Saturday night.
    Los Alamos hosted the district tournament championship match Saturday at Griffith Gymnasium, taking on the Bernalillo Spartans. The Spartans had been the Hilltoppers’ toughest opponents during the district season, but the Hilltoppers dispatched them in straight sets.
    Los Alamos held on in the first set with Bernalillo serving at set point, then held on to win late in the third set, grabbing a 26-24, 25-16, 25-21 victory. The win gave Los Alamos its third consecutive 2-4A tournament title.
    The three set victories upped the consecutive set win streak by Los Alamos to 27. The win, however, didn’t come without a few hiccups.

  • LA girls run away with 4A title

    RIO RANCHO — Even for a team with 15 previous state titles under its belt, the win by the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls cross country team was an impressive one.

    The Hilltoppers thoroughly dominated the Class 4A state cross country championship race Saturday.

    The state title race was held at Rio Rancho High School under cold and windy conditions, conditions that suited Los Alamos just fine.

    “The course was really good for us. We train in the cold,” Hilltopper junior Jennifer Mooday said. “When we saw the weather, we were overly excited. We were ecstatic.”

    Mooday, who has helped the Hilltoppers to two previous state titles, finished fourth overall in this year’s race.

  • LA triumphs big at state

    RIO RANCHO — Almost invariably, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys cross country team saves the best for last.
    That has never been truer than it was on Saturday.

    Los Alamos appeared primed and ready for an upset Saturday at the Class 4A state championship.  The underdog Hilltoppers, however, turned what looked to be a dogfight into a mauling.

    At Rio Rancho High School, the Hilltoppers placed five runners in the top 10 individually, sweeping positions two, three and four, to crush all comers at the title meet.
