  • LAGC hosts first big tourney of summer

    Los Alamos Golf Course is set to host its first major tournament of the summer this weekend.
    While it’s technically not summer yet, many consider Memorial Day the kick-off of the season. LAGC is no exception, as it hosts the Memorial Day Best Ball Tournament starting Saturday.
    The Memorial Day Best Ball tournament is one of four course-sponsored events that mark the course’s busiest time of the year.
    This summer is shaping up to be a busy one at LAGC, despite the fact it’s still working through design and funding issues with Los Alamos County. Money for course improvements, including the construction of a new clubhouse, has been approved by council, but those improvements may still be several years away.

  • Records shattered at JMTR

    A bunch of course records fell at Saturday’s Jemez Mountain Trail Runs.

    The 2012 JMTR event, in its seventh year, took place Saturday. Runners started on North Mesa, wound their way toward the Valles Caldera and back in three different distances.

    Diana Finkel of South Fork, Colo., set a new all-time best in the women’s 50-mile competition, but would need that performance to hold off a top local athlete, Erica Baron, to take this year’s women’s title.

    Finkel finished the 50-mile race in 9 hours, 26 minutes, 29 seconds. Baron posted a time of 9:29:17. Both marks bested the previous record in the women’s 50-miles, set by Darcy Africa in 2007.
