  • Pertussis cases are on the rise in New Mexico

    Health Secretary Alfredo Vigil, MD, said Tuesday that New Mexico is seeing a significant increase in the number of pertussis cases statewide, and people can protect themselves and their families by getting immunized.
    Dr. Michael Nichols of the Los Alamos Children’s Clinic said this morning that there has been one case in northern New Mexico and it was a child who attends Los Alamos Public Schools. The schools are urging sixth graders and their parents to get booster shots as soon as possible.

  • Girls soccer: LA earns big win over Capital

    SANTA FE — It was a bit of a balancing act that the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team had to perform Tuesday, but it didn’t appear to be much of problem.
    About the only concern the Hilltoppers had in the District 2AAAA finale was to make sure they didn’t tire themselves out with two big games scheduled for later this week.
    The Hilltoppers took on the Capital Jaguars to close out the district season Tuesday at Jaguar Field and, as expected, routed them 10-0, finishing the game off about eight minutes early.

  • Boys soccer: Toppers nab district crown

    SANTA FE — Winning a district title was the big goal. Making a statement to go along with it doesn’t hurt, either.
    At Jaguar Field Tuesday, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team accomplished both.
    The Hilltoppers finally shook off the upset-minded Capital Jaguars in the second half of Tuesday’s game, scoring three quick-strike goals to win 3-0 and earn its third-straight District 2AAAA title.

  • Baseball: Cain beats Phils 3-0 as Giants take 2-1 NLCS lead

    So, what a day for the outing of his life, and his first career victory against the Philadelphia Phillies in six tries.
