  • Week 7 Duke City Soccer League results

    Here are the Los Alamos Football Club’s results from week seven of Duke City Soccer League play:

    On the girls side, the U11 Hotshots 2001 rematch against  Albuquerque United turned out much better than its 6-0 opening game loss, playing the United to a scoreless draw.
    Goalkeepers Anna Lemke and Leah Wolfsberg and midfield duo Amy Littleton and Marie Lee helped preserve the scoreless tie throughout.
    Strikers Alyssa Parker, Alissia Hagenstadt, Paulina Burnside and Sophia Mamula kept the attacking pressure and the defense was led by Shelly Doyle, Kaitlin McGrane and Gloria Torres.
    For the boys, most games were cancelled due to high winds tipping over goals.

  • District singles, doubles titles up for grabs

    The District 2-4A championship tennis tournaments have been something of one-sided affairs of late.
    Los Alamos’ boys and girls teams are undefeated at the district tournament since joining 2-4A in 2000. While in team competition that’s unlikely to change in 2012, the individual tournament could be very competitive.
    The district tournament starts Friday and continues through Saturday in Santa Fe.
    Most of the Hilltopper girls’ top players have elected to combine to play in this year’s doubles draw, leaving the singles competition wide open. Meanwhile, the second and third spots in the boys singles draw appear to be up for grabs as well.

  • LA boys tennis splits duals this week

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys tennis team split its final two regular season duals at home Monday and Tuesday.
    Los Alamos doubled up against Santa Fe Monday, taking a 6-3 win, then dropped a tight 5-4 decision to St. Michael’s Horsemen, 5-4.
    The victory over the Demons Monday clinched the Hilltoppers’ overall No. 1 seed heading into this weekend’s 2-4A tournament. The winner of that tournament in the team, singles and doubles qualifies to move on to next week’s state Class 4A championship tournament.
    Against St. Mike’s, the Hilltoppers went 2-4 in singles competition. They needed to sweep the doubles contests but came up one match short in doubles to snatch the victory against the Horsemen, a tough Class A-3A squad.

  • Toppers rally in final at-bat to top Broncos

    Down to its last at-bat, the Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team could’ve easily packed things in against a battle-tested Kirtland Central Broncos unit.
    Instead, with the game on the line, the Hilltoppers came up big.
    Kiana Zerr’s lead-off double in the seventh, followed up by a pair of Kirtland Central errors and a scratch infield hit to bring home the winning run propelled the Hilltoppers to an important Class 4A victory Tuesday at Overlook Park.
    Los Alamos prevailed 5-4 to earn the win over Kirtland Central, which plays in the toughest district in Class 4A and arguably the toughest district in the state regardless of classification, District 1.
