  • Elkins tops the Pace Race field

    Sue Elkins had a perfect prediction in Tuesday’s Pace Race, and she needed a perfect prediction to win.
    The Pace Race is a weekly event hosted by the Atomic City Roadrunners. They run every Tuesday at various sites around Los Alamos County.
    This week’s race was in Pajarito Acres, starting on Acoma Lane.
    Elkins called her time perfectly on the 1-mile course, just nipping Eddie Gartz, who was only 1 second off his predicted finish time. Zachary Medin had the best time on Tuesday’s 2.8-mile course, coming in 14 seconds off.
    The next Pace Race will start near Quemazon Montessori School, located at 4600 Esperanza Ave. The race, which begins at 6 p.m., will include both a 1-mile and 3-mile course.

  • All-Star softball teams to open state play Saturday

    The Los Alamos County Little League All-Stars senior and 10-11 softball teams will begin state tournament play Saturday.
    Los Alamos County’s seniors will take on District 9 champion Ysleta in the opening round of the state tournament at the Franklin Miles complex. Game time is 10 a.m.
    Meanwhile, the 10-11 All-Stars will open the tournament at 3 p.m. The 10-11 tournament will be hosted by Thunderbird Little League in Albuquerque.
    The senior All-Stars are one of four teams vying for the right to advance to the regional tournament, which will be played this year in Vidalia, La.
    Copper and Gallup will face off in the other first round contest Saturday, which will follow the Los Alamos-Ysleta game. The winners of the two games will meet at 2 p.m. Saturday.
    The senior league All-Stars are comprised of girls ages 13 and above. Los Alamos manager Roger Anaya said about half his team is on the younger end of the spectrum.
    Last year, a combined White Rock-Los Alamos All-Star team won the District 1 title and advanced to the regional playoff, which was played in Santa Fe — the host district gets an automatic bid into the regionals.
    The team’s stint at the regional tournament was a short one, however, as it fell to both Vidalia and Texas East.

  • Fenton, Turner are big winners at Y's Firecracker 5K

    Ryan Fenton made it a three-peat at the Family YMCA of Los Alamos’ Firecracker 5K.
    Fenton, who lives in Albuquerque but runs for and goes to school at New Mexico State University, was again the top finisher at the annual race, sponsored by the YMCA. Fenton was 47 seconds better than runner-up Blake Wood to take his third consecutive Firecracker 5K title.
    The race is run on Independence Day, following a course starting at the YMCA’s main complex on Iris Street, down Canyon Road and back.

    On the women’s side, Elizabeth Turner of Los Alamos defeated 2012 champion Adrienne Larson to take this year’s title. Turner clocked in at 20:31, almost a minute better than runner-up Larson’s time of 21:25.
    This year’s Firecracker 5K included 171 runners, down slightly from last year’s total of 175 entries.
