  • LA dropped by Belen Friday, 35-8

    BELEN – While it might be tough to find a lot of good news in a 27-point loss, there were at least some bright spots for the Los Alamos Hilltopper football team Friday night.
    Facing one of the top programs in Class 4A in its Homecoming contest, the Hilltoppers were able to move the ball fairly well for a good portion of the night.
    Unfortunately, some decent drives for the Hilltoppers didn’t result in any points until the very end when the game was out of reach.
    Meanwhile, the heavily-favored Belen Eagles took advantage of some big plays, many of them provided by quarterback Nicholas Kurtz, as they picked up a 35-8 victory at home Friday.

  • LA has close call Saturday

    The Santa Fe Demons gave the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team everything it could handle Saturday, but the Hilltoppers escaped with a 2-1 overtime victory.
    The Hilltoppers and Demons squared off in Santa Fe Saturday morning in the Hilltoppers’ second District 2-4A contest of the season.
    In that contest, Santa Fe held Los Alamos to just one goal in 95 minutes before Los Alamos finally secured the victory with a second goal in the second overtime period. Collin Stone and Ryan Maestas finished with goals, while Ryan Kniss and David Stroud were credited with assists.
    Lorenzo Venneri finished with three stops in goal for Los Alamos, which improved to 2-0 on the district season. It topped Bernalillo 4-1 in its district opener Tuesday.

  • LA blanks Santa Fe in 2-4A

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team upped its District 2-4A record to 2-0 with a shutout win Saturday against Santa Fe.
    Hilltopper Amy Neal scored a pair of goals, one in each half, and earned assists on the other two goals as the Hilltoppers cruised to a 4-0 victory over Santa Fe’s Demons Saturday.
    Los Alamos, which has had a busy schedule of late, will get a whole week off from competition. It won’t play again until Saturday when it hosts Capital, another District 2-4A opponent.
    Los Alamos head coach Jiri Kubicek said he could tell his team was feeling the effects of a tough two-week stretch.

  • Boys cross country: Reardon paces LA, takes seventh place at Academy

    ALBUQUERQUE — In the second meeting between the two biggest rivals in Class 4A, the Albuquerque Academy Chargers grabbed a solid win.
    Los Alamos traveled south to take on Academy and the rest of the field at the Academy Invitational. Los Alamos finished fourth in team competition with 129 points, while the Chargers nipped the Cleveland Storm for Friday’s team title.
    The top finisher for the Hilltoppers Friday was Sean Reardon. Reardon, who stuck right with the top runners through more than half the race, wound up finishing seventh overall.

  • Girls cross country: LA nipped by Eldorado, thumps Academy at meet

    ALBUQUERQUE — While who is the best girls cross country team in the state is still up for debate, the Los Alamos Hilltoppers are still making a very good case for being the top team in Class 4A.
    Los Alamos finished in second place at a very tough meet Friday, the Albuquerque Academy Invitational. Los Alamos was second overall, placing a pair of runners in the top five individually.
    The team title was won by Eldorado Friday. Eldorado, the odds-on favorite to win the Class 5A title this season, is also the only team to have topped the Hilltoppers through three races this season.

    Public meeting

  • Redistricting battle likely to head to court

    Rep. Jim Hall (R-Los Alamos, Sandoval, and Santa Fe) leaned against the wall near the entrance of the House chamber Friday night at the Roundhouse.

    It had been a pretty stressful couple of weeks.

    The fight over redistricting will shift to the courts because of promised vetoes by Republican Gov. Susana Martinez of several redistricting plans passed by the Democratic-controlled Legislature. A judge probably will end up drawing the boundaries of House, Senate and Congressional districts.

  • Benda talks about balance in community

    Editor’s note: This is the first of a four-part series.

    The four candidates for the County Administrator’s post faced tough questioning from three different groups Friday: county councilors, senior administration and a community panel.

    The three groups then convened in closed session to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of each candidate. No decision was reached, and discussions will continue next week.

  • Bus service begins Monday at Bandelier

    Although much of Bandelier National Monument will have limited access for the foreseeable future due to the Las Conchas Fire and subsequent flooding, park officials are excited to announce that additional sections of the Monument are reopening on Monday, just in time for the influx of visitors from the Balloon Fiesta.

     “We’re excited to get people back into Bandelier enjoying the Monument. It’s been too long. And, we’re even more ecstatic that it’s just in time for Balloon Fiesta when we typically have 40,000 visitors,” said Bandelier Superintendent Jason Lott.

    One major change for visitors to note upon reopening, Bandelier will be operating as a “car-free park” from Monday, Sept. 26 through Oct. 30.
