  • Let's Get It Started

    Monday was the first official day of preseason workouts for high school football programs around the state, including the Hilltoppers. Here, Mitch Carson runs agility drills during Monday morning’s workout at the Los Alamos High School practice field. Los Alamos is coming off a 6-5 season and a District 2-4A championship in 2011. The Hilltoppers’ first game of the 2012 season is scheduled for Aug. 31 at home against Pojoaque.

  • All-Stars eliminated by Texas East

    The White Rock-Los Alamos All-Star junior softball team was bounced out of the Southwest Regional championship tournament largely on the strength of one big inning Sunday.
    The Southwest Regional is the final step on the road to the Little League World Series, which for junior division softball, will be in Washington later this month. The WR-LA All-Stars advanced to the tournament after winning the District 1 title in early July.
    Unfortunately, it was a short appearance for the WR-LA All-Stars, who lost both of their tournament games, including Sunday’s elimination game against Texas East.

  • Bolt gets ready for the 200m

    LONDON (AP) — Get ready for more of The Bolt Show.
    Usain Bolt dropped by Olympic Stadium for a brief visit Monday night and did things his way, as usual, jumping to the top step of the medal podium to collect his second consecutive gold for the 100 meters.
    When the Jamaican sensation returns to the track on Tuesday, it’ll be for the first round of the 200 meters, an event he’s planning to win, too, as part of his quest to become what he calls a “living legend.”
    As it is, Bolt and Carl Lewis are the only men to take home back-to-back golds in the 100.
    No man ever has won two Olympic golds in the 200 meters.

    Isotopes’ pitching gets walloped Monday vs. Tucson

    The Albuquerque Isotopes don’t seem to be having much trouble scoring against the Tucson Padres during their current series, but stopping the Padres from scoring has been an issue.
    The Isotopes have scored 19 runs in the first two games of the series, but Tucson has won both contests. The Padres won Sunday’s series opener 10-8, then followed that up with a 14-11 victory Monday.
    To finish up its current homestand with at least a .500 mark, the Isotopes must win both tonight and Wednesday. They split their four-game set with Las Vegas just prior to the Tucson series.
