  • Big 5th inning lifts LA to district win

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team broke open a tight ballgame with a big rally in the fifth inning and capped off Wednesday’s contest with a big sixth inning.
    After falling behind 5-4 Wednesday at Santa Fe, Los Alamos pushed 13 runs across the plate in the next two innings to win 17-5 in a key District 2-4A contest.
    After struggling to get its offense going against a talented eighth grade pitcher, Alex Russell, Los Alamos strung together several base hits in the fifth inning. Those hits, combined with Santa Fe’s defensive miscues — following a nearly flawless first four innings — put the Hilltoppers up 11-5.

  • Toppers pummel Santa Fe's Demons

    SANTA FE — The Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team wasted no time jumping all over the Santa Fe Demon pitching staff Wednesday.
    Los Alamos pounded out seven hits in the top of the first Wednesday, pushing eight runs across the plate in the inning, setting the tone for a District 2-4A rout.
    The Hilltoppers finished with 14 hits in three innings as they closed out the Demons in the minimum five innings, winning 17-0. The victory improved the Hilltoppers 2-4A mark to 3-0.
    Currently, Los Alamos is sitting atop the district standings and can put some separation between itself and the other four 2-4A teams with a good showing at home this weekend.

  • ´Toppers pick up big sweep Saturday

    BERNALILLO — Heading into game one of Saturday’s doubleheader, the pressure was squarely on the shoulders of the Los Alamos Hilltoppers.

    The Hilltopper softball team earned two huge victories Saturday in Bernalillo, knocking off the Bernalillo Spartans, who had to be going into Saturday the district favorites. Instead, the Hilltoppers earned a wild 8-5 victory in the opener and picked up a 6-0 shutout in the second game.
