  • LA shut out at Academy

    A loss to the Albuquerque Academy Chargers always stings, but it’s a lack of effort that will really stick in the craw of the Los Alamos Hillltopper boys soccer team.
    Los Alamos couldn’t get over the hump during Friday’s contest at Academy, the fifth-ranked team in the state. Academy scored a 72nd-minute goal on a crossing pass that got through the defense to the uncovered left flank as it grabbed a 1-0 victory.
    It was the second loss for Los Alamos against Academy this season. Los Alamos was hoping to redeem itself in Friday’s game after taking a 3-2 loss Sept. 10.
    But Friday, Los Alamos simply got beat.
    “I never thought I’d say this, but we got outworked,” Hilltopper head coach Evan Gartz said.

  • LA’s offense, defense come up big vs. Bobcats

    In 2010, the Bloomfield Bobcats came back from a late deficit with the Los Alamos Hilltopper football team needing just to run out the clock in the fourth quarter.
    Friday night, the Hilltoppers found themselves in much the same position, backed up on their 4-yard line and clinging to a 1-point lead.
    But on a long sideline route on third down, Bloomfield was flagged for pass interference. Then, three plays later, quarterback Danny Finn scrambled down the right side for a big 7-yard pickup to earn another first down which all but sealed the game for the Hilltoppers.
    Los Alamos earned its first win of the season Friday, topping Bloomfield 21-20 at Sullivan Field.

  • ´Toppers blank top-ranked Chargers Saturday

    A hot start to the 2011 season had some whispering that this could be the year for the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team to knock off the Albuquerque Academy Chargers.
    Those whispers could get considerably louder now.
    The Hilltoppers, who didn’t have the greatest week coming into Saturday’s contest, losing two straight to a pair of quality opponents, picked up a huge win over their arch-rival Chargers. Forward Amy Neal scored goals in both halves and Katie Hemphill scored near the midpoint of the first half as the Hilltoppers shut out the Chargers, 3-0.

  • Lawmakers OK education panel redistricting

    SANTA FE (AP) — New Mexico lawmakers are nearing an agreement on a redistricting plan for an elective commission that has a voice in establishing charter schools in the state.
    The Senate and House approved separate, but identical bills Friday for drawing new district boundaries of the 10-member Public Education Commission.
     However, the two chambers must pass the same piece of legislation before it goes to the governor.
    The Education Commission is the first of several redistricting plans that the Legislature must create during a special session, which has entered its second week.

     

  • Expect delays on truck route

    Drilling operations to affect traffic on the LANL Truck Route
     
    A new groundwater well is scheduled to be drilled on the north side of the Los Alamos National Laboratory Truck Route beginning Saturday, and drivers headed to and from the lab should be aware of trucks turning onto and off the roadway in that area.
     The point for trucks entering and exiting the roadway corresponds to where the passing lane begins, about a mile east of the laboratory security force firing range, or just over two miles from the junction of the Truck Route with State Road 4.  
     Drivers coming down the hill should be especially careful to observe posted speed limits and watch for traffic slowdowns.
