  • 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 shuts out Capital Saturday

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team upped its record to a spotless 4-0 in District 2-4A play with a big win over Capital Saturday night.
    Los Alamos played one of its most complete matches of the season to sweep Capital Jaguars 25-15, 25-9, 25-19 at Griffith Gymnasium.
    The win put Los Alamos squarely in the driver’s seat with just four district contests remaining on the season. Los Alamos has lost just one set, its first of district play and has now won 12 straight sets against 2-4A opponents.

  • 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.

  • 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.
