  • LA comes back to win in extras

    ESPAÑOLA – Just two strikes away from losing the District 2-4A lead it had held for nearly a month, the Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team pulled off an improbable seventh inning rally to force extra innings Wednesday.
    But Los Alamos left fielder Kyle Parks lined a single into left field to keep the Hilltoppers alive in their final at-bat of regulation. From there, the Hilltoppers rallied for seven unanswered runs as they topped the Española Valley Sundevils 10-5 in eight innings.

  • Toppers win title with rout of Sundevils

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team wrapped up the 2012 District 2-4A championship with a big win Wednesday night in Española.
    Monika Teter threw a five-inning no hitter and was just one batter away from a perfect game as the Hilltoppers thumped the Española Valley Sundevils 11-0.
    Los Alamos (16-5 overall, 9-1 in 2-4A) claimed its fourth consecutive district title with the victory and, perhaps more importantly, the district’s automatic bid into next month’s state tournament. Los Alamos scored five runs in the fourth inning and two more in the fifth to close out the game in about an hour.
