    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls track and field team closed out its regular season with another big victory Friday.

    Los Alamos, the top-ranked team in Class AAAA, will head into this week’s 2AAAA championship meet as the heavy favorite to win, even if it elects not to use its top athletes.

  • Boys track and field: LA wins big in to close out season

    Despite miserable conditions Friday, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys track and field team still managed to pick up a victory at home.

    Los Alamos earned 25 personal best marks at the event despite prevalent winds that hit 40 mph at Sullivan Field.

  • Softball: Toppers win 2-4A crown with sweep

    BERNALILLO — Apparently, the Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team got hot at the right time.

    Los Alamos leapt the final hurdle of the 2AAAA race Saturday, taking both ends of a doubleheader from Bernalillo’s Spartans. Pitcher Monika Teter earned the victory in the first game, then came back in the nightcap to close out the win.

  • Baseball: LA splits road twinbill vs. Bernalillo

    BERNALILLO — Few will ever accuse the 2010 Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team of not having a flair for the dramatic.

    In its quest to earn the District 2AAAA championship, Los Alamos had to come back from two runs down in the top of the seventh of Saturday’s game one to earn a big victory. And while the Hilltoppers fell in the second game of Saturday’s twinbill, they still managed to make their final at-bat an interesting one.

  • The Romero Cabin is ready to open

    The histories of the Manhattan Project and the Ranch School are pretty well known to the community. However, there is another story about Los Alamos that is not frequently told. With the opening of a historic building approaching, this should change.

    The Romero Cabin, one of two remaining homestead cabins on the Pajarito Plateau, will be unveiled May 1. A grand opening will be at 11 a.m.

  • Modest tax relief measure gets nod from council

    Property taxes have been somewhat of a hot issue for Los Alamos County residents in recent years. Complaints about taxes that are too high have been heard at various county council meetings, but until recently, residents held little hope that things would change.

    Property owners will now get some breathing room thanks to a motion passed Tuesday at the county budget hearings, by county council.

    Council Chair Michael Wismer said that by approving the property tax cut, it will equate to a reduction of  $200 for a home valuation of $300,000.

  • Softball: LA holds on to top Cleveland

    Heading into the biggest set of games of the season, the Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team kept its impressive winning streak intact.

    The Hilltoppers held on in a tight contest Thursday, topping the Class 5A Sue Cleveland Storm 1-0 at Overlook Park.

    Los Alamos scored in the bottom of the first, but got little going offensively for the rest of the contest. However, the team’s pitching and defense was solid throughout.

  • Running: Romero is best predictor this week

    The pace race was held Tuesday in Lower Bayo Canyon and featured both a 1- and 3-mile course.

    Romero, running on the 3-mile course, finished just two seconds off his predicted time to take the top spot this week. The next closest predictors included Jeff Hill (13 seconds off) and Deidre Witherell (15 seconds off).
