  • LAHS gridders hosting golf tourney

    Most people don’t associate yelling “fore” with football, but the Los Alamos Hilltopper football team hopes you will this week.
    The LAHS Gridiron Booster Club is emphasizing the green in the green and gold by hosting their annual fundraising golf tournament Saturday.
    “All funds will be used to improve our existing equipment and pay for travel costs,” head coach Garett Williams said.
    The chance to chase the little white ball will benefit the player as well as do a lot to assist the team as the 2012 season approaches.
    Each player will receive a $15 gift card from GolfDiscount.com and a free golf club from Warrior Golf.

    Darla Thompson had the top predictions in this week’s Pace Race.
    The Pace Race, a weekly event hosted by the Atomic City Roadrunners, was Tuesday starting at Piñon Park in White Rock.
    Tuesday’s race was a staggered-start event. Participants with the slowest predicted times began the race first, followed by the predictors with the fastest times.
    Thompson was just two seconds off her predicted finish time on the 1-mile course, topping the next-closest predictor, Bob Weeks, who was nine seconds off. There were four other participants — Richard Thompson Jr., Jackie Marr, Lynn Kluegel and Duane Marr — that finished within 16 seconds of their predicted time on the 1-mile course.

Aguilar sparkled through five innings before reaching his Little League-mandated pitch count limit, giving up just one run.
    Pojoaque took advantage of Los Alamos’ struggles in the fourth inning, scoring four times to pick up a 6-3 victory and advance to the finals of the tournament.
