  • LA Girls fall at state

    ALBUQUERQUE – For most of the first half, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team looked like it might finally turn its fortunes  around against the Española Valley Sundevils.

    However, a couple of turnovers late in the first half put the Sundevils right back into Tuesday’s ballgame.
