  • Pic of the day: Easter Sunrise Services at Ashley Pond

    Roughly 50-60 people braved blustery winds and shivering temperatures to take part in the Easter Sunrise Service Sunday morning at Ashley Pond.

    The services included musical accompaniment of Quemazon Brass, along with the occasional honking of nearby geese who reside at the pond.

  • Softball: LA drops Academy at home

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team earned its second straight big victory at home Saturday.

    Hilltopper pitcher Monika Teter fanned 18 batters and the Hilltopper offense pounded out 13 hits as they rolled to an 11-3 victory over the Albuquerque Academy Chargers Saturday at Overlook Park.

    Los Alamos scored five times in the bottom of the first inning and five more time in the bottom of the sixth to earn the victory over the Class AAAA Chargers.

  • Girls track and field: Toppers run away with team title Saturday

    In its first home appearance of the season, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls track and field team gave the local fans something to cheer about.

    The Hilltoppers, one of the top teams in the state, regardless of classification, comfortably walked away with the team title at Saturday’s Los Alamos Quadrangular. The Hilltoppers, minus numerous key athletes owing to spring break, still breezed to 191.5 team points, easily outdistancing the runner-up Belen Eagles, who finished with 123.5 team points at the meet held at Sullivan Field.

  • Boys track and field: Toppers turn in uneven spring break showing

    With people going out of town, the spring break week is often a crapshoot around the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys track and field team.

    And while longtime Los Alamos head coach Larry Baca has come to terms with that after 26 years, this season’s spring break left him unamused.

    Baca said a dozen Hilltopper athletes were absent without leave this week, which was a big problem for his team.

  • Girls track and field: Ealey blasts shot put mark

    The Los Alamos High School record in girls shot put was obliterated Saturday and the athlete who broke it could set a mark that will never be touched before she’s through.

    Chase Ealey’s first toss at Saturday’s Los Alamos Quadrangular sent the 22-year-old school mark in the shot put crumbling.

    Ealey’s throw of 43 feet, 7-1/2 inches was more than 2-1/2 feet better than the longstanding LAHS record of 40-11 set by Mara Beverwyk in 1988.
