  • Topper hoops teams in bind heading into this week's games

    With just a handful of games left on the schedule, it’s a critical time for the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls to pick up some District 2-4A wins.
    Both teams have critical games left on their district schedules, starting tonight when the Hilltopper boys play at Santa Fe. Game time is scheduled for 7 p.m.
    Los Alamos’ boys missed out on an opportunity Saturday night to get right into the hunt of the 2-4A race, falling at home to what appeared going into the contest a vulnerable Bernalillo Spartans squad.
    The Spartans came away Saturday with a 67-59 victory at Griffith Gym, keeping them in second place in the 2-4A standings despite a Jan. 31 loss at Española Valley.

  • Spartans outgun LA in second half to win 67-59

    In what was probably the biggest game of its season to date, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team had a chance to reverse its fortunes in a hurry Saturday night.
    Los Alamos could’ve made a big splash in the District 2-4A standings if it could’ve pulled off an upset against the Bernalillo Spartans. Los Alamos’ upset prospects looked good after the first half at Griffith Gymnasium Saturday, taking a 30-26 lead into the locker room, but the Spartans bounced back in a big way in the third quarter.
    The Spartans outscored the Hilltoppers 20-8 in the third quarter and survived a comeback attempt in the fourth quarter to take a 67-59 decision.

  • Invite returns after being 'frozen out'

    “Frozen out but not forgotten” was the theme after the Bryan Sanchez Memorial Invitational wrestling tournament was canceled in 2011.
    The Bryan Sanchez tournament is the main event of each season for the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team, but because of weather issues, along with a statewide natural gas shortage that left thousands in New Mexico without heat as a major cold front swept through the state, the tournament was nixed.
    The frosty and icy conditions may have frozen out the tournament, but not the wrestling community.
