  • Martinson picks up 6-shot victory, Anast nips Norman

    It was another huge showing at the Los Alamos City Championship for Tami Martinson.
    Martinson grabbed her fourth consecutive City title this weekend at Los Alamos Golf Course. Martinson carded the two low rounds of the women’s title flight, shooting an 81 Sunday to win the title.
    The City Championship was played Saturday and Sunday. More than 50 players took part in this year’s competition.
    Martinson, who has been dominant in City competition since she began her impressive title run, won by six shots over Ellen Stallings. Stallings, who played Martinson’s group Sunday, nearly kept pace with Martinson, shooting an 82. Stallings finished as this year’s runner-up.

    LA All-Stars finish in third place

    The Los Alamos Little League 9/10 All-Stars bowed out of the state baseball tournament with a 10-7 loss Thursday night.
    The loss to Carlsbad ended a solid run by Los Alamos in the tournament, which was played in Portales. Los Alamos picked up two straight wins to advance to the semifinals, but was topped by Albuquerque Eastdale in the semifinal round and Carlsbad in Thursday’s elimination game.
    Los Alamos finished the tournament in third place.
    “The Eastdale team is really good,” Los Alamos manager Lance Eaton said. “Against Carlsbad, we just made too many mistakes. We actually out-hit them, but just had some mistakes. That’s Little League baseball.”

  • Anast, Martinson lead after day one

    With a big opening round in the men’s championship flight, Kurt Anast will head into today’s play as the man to catch.
    Anast had the low round of the tournament Saturday, a red-hot 3-under par to take the day-one lead at the Los Alamos City Championship.
    The City Championship will continue at 9 a.m. today. The tournament is being played at Los Alamos Golf Course.
    Scores from the tournament were all over the place Saturday, with a 14-stroke spread in the men’s title flight and a 21-shot spread in the senior men’s flight. Early last week, a leak had been detected in an underground pipe that feeds LAGC’s front nine holes and watering the course has been an issue — work begins to repair the leak Monday.

  • LA City golf championship is this weekend at LAGC

    The defending men’s and women’s Los Alamos City champions will be back to defend their crowns this weekend.
    Tami Martinson and Curt Norman are both expected to compete in the Los Alamos City Championship tournament. The tournament starts Saturday morning and continues through Sunday at Los Alamos Golf Course.
    Both Martinson, who has won three consecutive City championships and Norman, who has won two straight, are both favored again this year, but they will face plenty of competition in their quest to continue their streaks.
