  • LA finishes fifth at Jaguar tournament

    SANTA FE – It was a long day but it was a good day.
    After struggling at the 2010 Jaguar Invitational Tournament, the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team had a top-five showing at the 2011 event, picking up seven medals.
    The Hilltoppers finished Saturday’s Jaguar Invitational with 110.0 points, good enough for fifth place. The Hilltoppers actually started the final round in third place, but strong finishes by both Deming and Capital, along with an unfortunate turn of events for Los Alamos 220-pounder Diego Madrid, saw the team slip.
    “(Seven) medals is pretty good,” Los Alamos head coach Bob Geyer said. “Last year we just did one and this year’s tournament I thought was tougher than last year’s.”

  • LA nearly pulls off big upset

    ALBUQUERQUE — After a dismal offensive first half, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team got back into its game against the Sandia Matadors in the second half.
    Los Alamos, which trailed by as many as 11 points with 2:51 remaining in the second quarter, rallied to take a 46-43 lead with just over two minutes remaining in regulation.
    But the Matadors’ Carl Meyer put in a layup bucket with 26.3 seconds left which proved to be the difference in the opening round of the Joe Armijo Invitational. The Matadors prevailed 49-48, putting the Hilltoppers into the loser’s bracket of the tournament, which continues through Saturday at Albuquerque Academy.

  • Toppers thumped by Trojans, 55-33

    ALBUQUERQUE — An impressive run in the third quarter by the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team wasn’t enough to make up for an impressive run by the Mayfield Trojans in the first half.
    The Hilltoppers took on the Trojans, the defending Class 5A champion, in the first round of the Joe Armijo Invitational Thursday afternoon at Albuquerque Academy. The Trojans’ pressure defense and quick guards proved to be too much for the Hilltoppers, however, as they fell 55-33 and dropped into the loser’s bracket of the tournament.
    Los Alamos fell behind by as many as 25 points early in the third quarter, but a huge third quarter put it back in the ballgame.
