  • LA knocks off Bernalillo, improves to 3-0 in district

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team are now within one victory of claiming its fifth straight District 2-4A title after knocking off Bernalillo Saturday.

    Despite lingering disappointment following a 2-0 loss to the St. Pius X Sartans Friday afternoon, the Hilltoppers still cruised to a big 6-0 victory Saturday at Bernalillo.

    Amy Neal scored all of Los Alamos' first four goals of the contest, three in the first half and the fourth just four minutes into the second half to lead Los Alamos to the win.

    The only team that could possibly catch Los Alamos for the district title is Santa Fe. Those two teams meet on Tuesday at Sullivan Field.  A win would clinch the title for Los Alamos (12-5 overall, 3-0 in 2-4A).

  • LA opens district vs. Bernalillo tonight

    Last weekend was the most successful weekend District 2-4A’s football teams have had all season, making the start of the district season all the more interesting.

    After all five 2-4A teams got off to an unimpressive start to the season, three teams picked up victories in the final week before district play starts. Santa Fe, Bernalillo and Los Alamos are all going into the 2-4A season off of victories.

    Los Alamos’ victory may have been the most impressive, however, as it knocked off the Albuquerque Academy Chargers, No. 4 in Class 3A heading into last week’s game at Sullivan Field. Los Alamos gave up just 164 yards total offense and didn’t allow an Academy offensive score as it won 36-20.

  • Ross wins final Pace Race of 2011

    Inez Ross was the big winner in the final Pace Race of the 2011 season Tuesday.
    The Atomic City Roadrunners concluded their season with the Cooper’s Run at the Canyon Rim Trail. The Cooper’s Run, a 1.5-mile race, is designed to compare fitness improvement from the start to the end of training — the first Pace Race in April was also the Cooper’s Run.
    Ross finished just one second off of her predicted time at Tuesday night’s race. Jamie Jablin and Duane Marr both finished with prediction errors of 15 seconds.
    Jablin was also the fastest finisher on the course with his time of 9 minutes flat. Christie Kelly had the top women’s finish with her time of 13:54.

  • Toppers throttled by Sartans

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team was thumped by the St. Pius X Sartans Thursday afternoon in Albuquerque.
    After taking a 2-0 edge after one half, the Sartans scored three times — twice in a seven-minute span — in the second half to top the Hilltoppers 5-0 at Sartan Field.
    Thursday’s contest was a nondistrict affair between the former district rivals. St. Pius left 2-4A after the 2006 season, never having lost a district game since joining the district in 2000.
    St. Pius got off 15 shots-on-goal to Los Alamos’ three, all of which were scooped up by St. Pius’ Timothy Lang.
    Los Alamos, the defending Class 4A champion, defeated St. Pius in the semifinals of its 2010 state title run.

  • Sullivan Field ceremony set for Friday

    Los Alamos High School will host an official ribbon cutting for Sullivan Field Friday. The ceremony will be at 6 p.m., prior to the Los Alamos-Bernalillo football game.
    Friday’s ribbon cutting is a reopening ceremony for Sullivan Field. This summer, the playing field was redone, replacing the former natural grass surface with artificial surface.
    The public is welcomed to the ceremony, which will take place at midfield.
    For more information, contact athletic director Vicki Nelms at 663-2532.

  • Toppers roll over Sundevils in three

    ESPAÑOLA — Being on the road, going into hostile territory and having to duke it out with an arch-rival for the top spot in the district race would seem to be a daunting task.
    But Wednesday night, the Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team made it look easy.
    Los Alamos, facing off against the Española Valley Sundevils for the early lead in the district standings, used a late surge in the first set and dominated the second set to put Española Valley back on its heels. Los Alamos’ final set was sloppy, but it was still good enough to earn a 25-16, 25-10, 25-22 win at Edward Medina Gymnasium.

  • Using Her Head

    Los Alamos’ Leslie Guarello heads a ball toward the Capital goal Saturday at Sullivan Field. Guarello finished Saturday’s match with three goals and an assist as the Hilltoppers routed the Jaguars 10-0.

    The Hilltoppers, the top-ranked team in the state, have a big nondistrict contest scheduled for Friday when they travel to Albuquerque to take on St. Pius X.

    A win in that contest would give the Hilltoppers virtually undisputed claim on the No. 1 seed in the Class 4A championship tournament, which starts later this month.

  • Bob Visel shoots ace

    Bob Visel scored his first ace Sept. 20 at Los Alamos Golf Course.
    Visel, playing on the 122-yard eighth hole, picked up his ace hitting a pitching wedge.
    Witnessing the ace were Young Nilsen, John Stam and Eddie Sanchez.

  • Toppers, Sundevils to meet tonight

    The two top teams in the District 2-4A volleyball standings will face off tonight when Los Alamos’ Hilltoppers will take on Española Valley’s Sundevils.
    That match is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at Edward Medina Gymnasium in Española.
    Heading into that contest, the Hilltoppers and Sundevils are tied for the 2-4A lead. Both teams sport 2-0 district records.
    Española Valley, which has been Los Alamos’ toughest district opponent for the last several seasons, will be heading into tonight’s contest on a roll. It has won three straight matches, including a 3-2 victory over Santa Fe Sept. 28 and a 3-1 win over Capital Saturday.
