  • Skateboarders bring the speed--see video

    Some brave souls barreled down Camp May Road Saturday and Sunday as part of the Northern California Downhill Skateboarding Association’s first visit to Los Alamos.

    More than 120 boarders from across the country registered but as of Saturday morning, about 80 showed up.

    On Saturday afternoon, they held their qualifying runs and on Sunday, they will race for the dough.

    Not surprisingly, Timeship Racing, the organizer of the event, is calling the race down Camp May Road, “The Atomic Bomb.”

    From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, there will be racing as competitors will reach up to 60 mph as they navigate the narrow 1-mile course.

  • Golf: Rain shortens TPC play

    PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Players spent more time in the clubhouse than the golf course Saturday at The Players Championship, a rain-shortened day that left enough time for some high entertainment.
    Martin Kaymer made four straight birdie putts that traveled a combined 71 inches.
    The tournament staff had to move the cup on the 16th hole a few feet after the 4½-hour storm delay because of damage around the hole that it couldn’t repair.
    Ian Poulter was so desperate to finish his third round that he sprinted to the island-green 17th to finish the hole, then ran to the 18th tee and hit his drive to keep himself from having to wake up Sunday before dawn.

    ALBUQUERQUE — Two months ago, finishing the 2011 season with a trophy at the Class 4A boys track and field state meet seemed an unlikely prospect.

    The meet was won by the Artesia Bulldogs, who earned 67 points, snapping a two-year winning streak by the Albuquerque Academy Chargers. Academy finished second with 57 points.
