  • Yum Run is set for Saturday

    The annual Yum Run will return for its seventh year Saturday.
    The Yum Run, a 5K and 10K race, along with a 1K fun run/walk is the primary fundraising event for the local charity LA Cares. It starts and ends near Ruby K’s bagel shop downtown.
    As of Tuesday night, the event had 65 participants and organizers are expecting more than 100 runners and walkers to take part.
    Despite having plenty of participants, the race’s atmosphere is decidedly low-key.
    “It’s very laid back,” said June Gladney of LA Cares. “It’s very fun.”
    Former notable local senior athlete, as well as LA Cares volunteer Aaron Goldman, helped organize the first Yum Run in 2005.

  • Officer scores 1st round KO

    Los Alamos Police Department’s Lt. Jason Wardlow-Herrera knocked out Grant Lundquist of Santa Fe County’s fire department with a big right in the first round Saturday.
    Wardlow-Herrera took part in the Rumble in the Rio boxing matches Saturday. The event was held at the Santa Ana Star Casino near Bernalillo.
    The fights are an annual charity event that feature first-responders from around the state. Police officers won eight of the 12 fights on the card this year.
    With Wardlow-Herrera’s knockout — the only KO of the night —the event’s roving trophy will be delivered to LAPD Friday. LAPD will have the trophy for the next year.

  • LA finishes its fall slate at Santa Fe

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys golf team finished third in its final tournament of the fall 2011 season Monday.
    Los Alamos played at the Marty Sanchez Links de Santa Fe Monday. Monday’s tournament, however, was actually hosted by the Hobbs Eagles — Hobbs is located in the extreme southeastern part of the state.
    The Hilltoppers shot a 399 overall. Only one Hilltopper was able to break 100, however. Freshman Johnny Osden finished with a 92.
    Los Alamos head coach Mike Lippiatt said his team actually played most of the round better than its 399 would indicate, but there were a few blow-ups on the day that knocked scores up considerably.

  • Topper boys will travel to Piedra Vista to open playoffs

    A week ago, Evan Gartz predicted his team would have to go on the road and would have to travel a few hours.
    He was right on both counts.
    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team was seeded 10th in the Class 4A state tournament.
    The 2011 boys and girls soccer playoff brackets were released Sunday by the New Mexico Activities Association. The first round of play in both state tournaments gets going this weekend at home sites before action shifts to the Albuquerque Public Schools Soccer Complex in Albuquerque.
    Gartz, the Hilltopper boys head coach, said he wasn’t terribly surprised with where his team landed.

  • Boys soccer gets 10 seed, girls are 2

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team will be on the road in the first round of the state Class 4A tournament.

    The New Mexico Activities Association released its boys and girls soccer playoff brackets today. The Hilltopper girls were seeded No. 2 in the 4A tournament and won't play until the quarterfinal round Nov. 3.

    Los Alamos' boys picked up a No. 10 seed and will play at No. 7 Piedra Vista in the first round. That game is tentatively scheduled for Saturday. No time has been announced.

    In the boys draw, Capital, the Hilltoppers' District 2-4A rival, which wrenched the district title away from the Hilltoppers this season, surprised some by cracking the top four.

  • ´Toppers drop Sundevils in one half

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper football team breezed to victory Friday night at Sullivan Field and is now just one step away from clinching the District 2-4A title.

    Scoring came early and often for Los Alamos, which picked up its fourth consecutive win Friday in its final 2011 home game. Los Alamos scored a pair of touchdowns just 2:01 into the game then tacked on a third with 7:22 remaining in the opening quarter.

  • ’Toppers win 3-0 at home on Senior Night

    On Senior Night, the final regular season match at home, the Hilltoppers grabbed a 25-21, 25-15, 25-21 victory over the visiting Española Valley Sundevils.
    The win upped the Hilltoppers’ district record to a perfect 7-0 and kept their set streak, now at 21 straight, intact as well.
