  • LA girls take 4th at SFIS, boys are 8th

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls cross country teams competed at the Santa Fe Indian School meet Oct. 1.
    Instead of its usual powerful varsity lineups, which were taking part in the Twilight Festival in Phoenix that same weekend, Los Alamos’ second tiers of runners were given the nod to compete in the varsity races.
    Los Alamos’ girls finished fourth at the SFIS meet, which included 11 teams from around northern New Mexico. The Hilltopper boys took eighth out of 12 participating schools.
    Elizabeth Brug had the top finish of the day for Los Alamos, taking seventh overall in the girls race. Brug finished with a time of 21:32 to pace the Hilltoppers.

  • Staying Out in Front

  • LA clinches 2-4A title with 5-0 win

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team earned a big victory over the Santa Fe Demons Tuesday night and, in doing so, clinched its fifth consecutive District 2-4A title.
    Los Alamos’ Naomi Movshovich earned a hat trick against Santa Fe, scoring three goals as the Hilltoppers routed the Demons 5-0 at Sullivan Field.
    The victory not only clinched the 2-4A title for the Hilltoppers, but also clinched a Class 4A postseason bid. The Hilltoppers, who were No. 1 in the last two statewide girls soccer polls, will most likely be looking at a top-four seed and a probable first-round bye when the tournament selections are announced following the conclusion of the regular season.

  • Toppers score twice early in victory

    After a tough overtime victory in their first meeting, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team wanted to erase all doubt as to which was the better team Tuesday against the Santa Fe Demons.
    Los Alamos scored a little more than 90 seconds into Tuesday’s game at Sullivan Field and tacked on a second goal with less than 10 minutes expired against Santa Fe in a big District 2-4A contest. Los Alamos would then cruise to victory, picking up a 3-0 win.
    The Hilltoppers’ victory Tuesday sets up a final showdown with the Capital Jaguars for the District 2-4A crown. That game, early next week, is a rematch of a 1-0 contest won by the Hilltoppers Oct. 1 at Sullivan Field.

  • LA falls by 4 points to Santa Fe

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper C team football squad led for much of the way Monday against the Santa Fe Demons but some costly late turnovers helped the Demons get on track.
    In the fourth quarter, the Hilltoppers had a snap go over the punter’s head into the end zone, which was recovered by Santa Fe.
    On the next offensive series for the Hilltoppers, the Demons intercepted a pass and ran it back for a touchdown, giving it a four-point advantage.
    The quick two scores by Santa Fe helped it come back to win Monday’s game 26-22 at Sullivan Field.

  • LA blanks Bernalillo 38-0 in Friday’s District 2-4A opener

    It isn’t going to take long for the Los Alamos Hilltopper football team to figure out where it stands in the District 2-4A race.
    With its first two district games against two of the three main contenders in the race, Los Alamos could come within two very winnable games of clinching 2-4A by Friday of this week.
    The Hilltoppers took their first big step toward that goal Friday night by routing the Bernalillo Spartans.
    Los Alamos scored a pair of touchdowns in the opening quarter and a third touchdown early in the second quarter to start what would become a 38-0 rout of the Bernalillo Spartans at Sullivan Field.

  • Controversial goal helps St. Pius X shut out LA, 2-0

    ALBUQUERQUE — In a contest mired by both the weather and controversy, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team was downed by the St. Pius X Sartans Friday afternoon.
    Friday’s contest at Sartan Field pitted the two top-ranked teams in the state against one another, the Hilltoppers coming in as the No. 1 team in Class 4A and the Sartans No. 2.
    But midway through the second half, St. Pius got a quick-strike goal following a throw-in. Los Alamos’ Cassidy Reeves purposely booted a ball out of bounds after a player got injured on the field.
