  • Ealey wins shot put and 100 meters

    Los Alamos girls track and field multi-discipline star Chase Ealey appears once more to be the one to beat in her two best events.
    Ealey, a senior for the Hilltoppers, won the 100 meters and the shot put at the Marilyn Sepulveda Meet of Champions Monday. Ealey, the three-time reigning sprint champ and the 2011 state Class 4A shot put champ, picked up wins in both events Monday in what is a mid-season All-Star track meet.
    Ealey had been out during the preseason with a hamstring pull, but has since healed and appears now to be back in championship form.
    On the boys side, Jacob Brown took third in the triple jump and Sean Reardon was fourth in the 1,600 meters.

  • Teter strikes out 11 Spartans as LA wins big at home, 9-0

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team broke open a close game with five runs in the sixth inning while pitcher Monika Teter did the heavy lifting Wednesday afternoon.
    The Hilltoppers picked up the season sweep over the Bernalillo Spartans at Overlook Park Wednesday, earning a 9-0 victory. The win tightens the clamps on the Hilltoppers’ control over District 2-4A, who now effectively own a four-game lead over the second-place Spartans with five games to play.
    “Winning district is very important to us,” Los Alamos manager Roger Anaya said. “We’re 7-0 now, but we have our sights set on going through district undefeated. Our goal is to win one game at a time and play one pitch at a time. We need to continue to play good ball.”

  • Toppers close out Spartans in 6, pick up season sweep

    With one of its two biggest challengers officially dispatched, the Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team can turn its attention to the other.
    Los Alamos erased an early two-run deficit Wednesday against the Bernalillo Spartans, then poured it on in the late innings. First baseman Steven Williams and third baseman Jake Downs both went 2-for-3 and drove in two runs as the Hilltoppers dispatched the Spartans 12-2 in six innings.
    The win moves Los Alamos to 5-1 in the District 2-4A standings.
    With five of its remaining games against the two bottom teams in district, Santa Fe and Capital, Los Alamos appears to be in excellent position to earn its fourth straight 2-4A title.

    The Los Alamos Middle School Hawks boys track and field team hosted a home meet Tuesday at Sullivan Field.

  • LA boys trump Taos on road

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys tennis team picked up a solid win over the Taos Tigers Tuesday on the road.

    The Hilltoppers and Tigers were District 2-4A rivals until last season and had invariably finished 1-2 in district since 2000. Taos now competes in District 2-A-3A.
    Stephen Townsley at No. 1 singles, came up big again, sweeping Erik Christian 6-0, 6-2. Nos. 3-6 singles, Paul Graham, Dalton Smith, Steven McCrory and Forrest White were all winners as well, with Smith, McCrory and White all winning in straight sets.

The Hilltoppers have a big District 2-4A contest scheduled for Wednesday  when they host the Bernalillo Spartans. A win by the Hilltoppers (13-4, 6-0) would effectively put them four game ahead of the Spartans (15-3, 3-2), who are currently in second place in district, with five games remaining in the 2-4A season. Smith was injured in and left a March 31 doubleheader with Española Valley but rejoined the team just four days later.
