  • LA tripped up in semis by Bernalillo

    BERNALILLO — Brandon Saiz had been one of the best players in District 2-4A over the course of the regular season.
    But Saiz, point guard of the Bernalillo Spartan basketball team, rolled his ankle last week and was unavailable for Thursday’s District 2-4A semifinal contest.
    Things seemed to have stacked up about as well as they could for the Los Alamos Hilltoppers, who had struggled to stop Saiz in two previous meetings between the teams. Additionally, the Hilltoppers were going into the semifinal off a big win against Española Valley.

    Support has poured in for a youth project benefiting a Los Alamos Middle School student and there’s one week left for community members to take part.
    The LAMS Passion project was launched to help gather food, toys and other pet supplies for animals in need.
    The first-year project attempted to fill a gap for the animal shelter by collecting collars and leashes provided to pets on their way to their new homes and help with getting the word out about shelter calendars.
    The project for the 2011-2012 school year has taken a new turn, beginning with a pet food drive at the Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce.
