  • Kelly wins Pace Race

    Nearly 20 runners just beat out the Tuesday night rainstorm at the Atomic City Roadrunners’ Pace Race.
    Just as the final racer finished the 3-mile race, which started on San Ildefonso Road near Big Rock Loop, rains hit North Mesa.
    The best predictor in Tuesday’s race was made by Marin Kelly. Kelly finished with an adjusted prediction error of nine seconds on the 1-mile course, well ahead of David Kratzer’s next-best prediction error of 23 seconds.
    Kelly was also the fastest finisher on the 1-mile course with her time of 8:32. Bob Weeks finished in 12:58.
    On the 3-mile course, Roxana Candia had the fastest finish (23:18). Zach Medin finished in 24:17.
    The next Pace Race is the final regularly scheduled race of the season. It will be at Canyon Rim Trail Tuesday night.
    More information can be found at the Roadrunners’ website, atomicrunners.com, or by calling 672-1639.

  • LA club teams start fall Duke City play

    Several club soccer teams from the area returned to Duke City Soccer League action two weeks ago.
    In week two action this past weekend, the girls U14 Kixx 99 picked up a season-opening win, taking a 3-0 decision over Albuquerque United.
    Other local girls club teams didn’t fare quite as well in week two, however. The U13 Kixx team picked up a tie, while the U12 Hotshots fell to Farmington’s Prostar Red 3-1 and the U11 Hotshots fell 3-1 to the Rio Monsters.
    The U13 club scored its goal on a chip shot over the goalkeeper by Hanna Little. A strong defensive front led by Valerie Li, Elsa Gram, Jordan Bailey, Sarah Russell and goalkeeper Robyn Hollis, along with improving midfield play by Hanna Littleton, Jenny Paige, Emalie Harris,  Ashley Attencio  and Jessica Cooke helped secure the tie.  
    In week two boys games, the U13 Lasers 2000 picked up a big 5-1 victory over the Rio Raptors.
    Arthur Steinkamp scored 3 goals for the Lasers, while Andres Runde and Dean Chandler also picked up goals. Kauru Shimada had a big game in the midfield and the defense was anchored by Devin Cantua with strong play by Cameron Art, Ben Rees and Cid Rice.  

  • LA will host Belen's Eagles in big 4A contest tonight

    Despite losing by four touchdowns last season, the Los Alamos Hilltopper football team had a turning point of sorts in its 2011 contest against the Belen Eagles.
    Los Alamos could use a boost like that again. Tonight, it will get that chance.
    The Hilltoppers will face the Belen Eagles in a Class 4A match-up. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Sullivan Field.
    Los Alamos is heading into tonight’s contest off an impressive showing a week ago. Los Alamos thumped the Kirtland Central Broncos for homecoming, 34-0, to improve to 2-2 on the season.
    But while the Hilltoppers went in as favorites last Friday, they will be the underdogs against a solid Eagles squad that is currently ranked No. 6 in the state.
    The situation was similar for the Hilltoppers a year ago when they traveled to Belen. In that game, Belen grabbed a 35-8 victory, but the game wasn’t as one-sided as the final score would make it seem, with the Hilltoppers moving the ball fairly effectively on offense, although those drives would stall except for the final eight-play, 76-yard drive to the end zone.
    That contest marked a turnaround of sorts for the Hilltoppers and the last hurrah for the Eagles, whose season started off promising but quickly unraveled.

  • Carlsbad woman reunited with dog after 3 years

    CARLSBAD, N.M. (AP) — Gail Brewer never thought she'd see Roxie again. She got the golden Lab as a puppy in 2008, and as a sheriff's deputy, Brewer had hoped to train the dog to join her department's K-9 unit. That never happened.

    Roxie went missing in early 2009, leaving only her collar and tags behind. Brewer and her family combed over her parents' 120-acre farm in Central New York, where they were living at the time. They plastered rural Trumansburg with flyers seeking Roxie's return. Every once in a while, Brewer would get a call from people saying they thought they saw Roxie running in a field or outside their home.

    "We'd spend hours each night looking for her," Brewer said.

    But each search was fruitless. There was no sign of the dog.
