  • LA can take big step toward clinching 2-4A vs. Spartans

    Saturday, the Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team will have a chance to all but salt away the District 2-4A regular season title for 2011.
    Standing in its way, however, is Los Alamos’ toughest district opponent.
    The Hilltoppers will take on the Bernalillo Spartans Saturday night to open the second round of 2-4A matches. The Hilltoppers came through the first half of the district season unscathed and a win Saturday would put them just one victory from clinching their third consecutive 2-4A title.
    The Hilltopper-Spartan contest is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at Griffith Gym.
    Bernalillo (11-2 overall, 3-1 in 2-4A), following its district-opening loss to Los Alamos, won three straight contests.

  • Toppers, Demons meet in huge 2-4A contest

    In a short time, the Los Alamos Hilltoppers have gone from a struggling football team to one that is knocking on the door of a district championship.
    Los Alamos, which limped through its first three games of the year, has won three of its last four contests and can take a big step toward clinching a District 2-4A title tonight when it faces the Santa Fe Demons.
    With a big 38-0 win over reigning district champ Bernalillo last week, Los Alamos cemented its position as the team to beat in 2-4A. With a win tonight at Ivan Head Stadium, the Hilltoppers can all but seal it.
    It will have to get by a Demons squad, however, that had been pegged as the district favorite and can wrench that title back with a win.

  • Cross country teams back in action Saturday at Rio Rancho

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper cross country teams return to action Saturday morning after a well-earned week off.

    The Hilltoppers will take part in the Rio Rancho Jamboree. Races at Rio Rancho, run on a virtually identical course to next month's state meet, will begin at 8 a.m.

    Los Alamos took a week off to rest up following the Twilight Cross Country Invitational. The invitational, held in Phoenix, showcased some of the top teams in the southwest.

    Against that caliber of competition, the Hilltopper boys and girls teams finished none-too-shabby.

  • 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

    Los Alamos’ Cassidy Reeves tries to keep the ball away from an opponent from Santa Fe Tuesday at Sullivan Field. Los Alamos locked up the District 2-4A title with Thursday’s win. Los Alamos was on top of last week’s girls soccer poll.

  • 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.
