  • ´Toppers roll over Jaguars, claim District 2-4A crown

    SANTA FE – It didn’t seem to be a likely scenario in mid-September.
    Now, in late October, it has come to pass. Or, more accurately, it has come to rush.
    Putting together an impressive run in District 2-4A, the Los Alamos Hilltopper football team capped off a perfect district season with a 50-0 clubbing of the Capital Jaguars.
    Los Alamos rolled up 303 rushing yards in just one half Friday night at Jaguar Field. Arnoldo Ortiz and Xavier Dennison duplicated their feat of rushing for 100 yards-plus in about a quarter’s worth of work that they pulled off a week earlier, with Dennison going for 112 yards on just four carries in the second quarter and Ortiz earning 109 yards on 11 carries in just a little over 14 minutes of play.

  • LA’s boys, girls cruise to 12th consecutive district title

    The District 2-4A cross country championship race over the previous 11 years had been more formality than competition.
    That didn’t change any on Friday.
    Los Alamos’ cross country teams were once again dominant at the district championship. Los Alamos, hosting the meet at Los Alamos Golf Course, swept both titles handily, with the Hilltopper boys grabbing a perfect score of 15 to earn their 12th straight district title.
    In the girls race, the Hilltoppers cruised to finish with 20 points, easily outdistancing runner-up Bernalillo by 41 points.
    Individually, Hilltoppers Jordan Parker and Alexander Romero scored impressive wins with each of them grabbing their first career district titles.

  • Football can clinch 2-4A title tonight

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper football team will have a shot at clinching the District 2-4A title tonight.
    Los Alamos will take on the Capital Jaguars at 7 p.m. A win for the Hilltoppers tonight at Jaguar Field will seal the 2-4A title for the 2011 season.
    Heading into tonight’s game, the Hilltoppers (5-4) are among the hottest teams in Class 4A.

The Hilltoppers’ controlling their own destiny heading into their season finale seemed like a long shot a month ago.

  • Neal, Zumbro named district's top players

    For the second straight year, Amy Neal was named the top offensive performer in District 2-4A girls soccer.

    Los Alamos’ girls dominated the All-District first team selections, which were released Thursday night. In all, six Hilltoppers were named to the district’s first team along with Neal.
    Meanwhile, Hilltopper captain Zeke Zumbro was named the Defensive Player of the Year by the district. Zumbro, a junior, became the second straight Hilltopper fullback to earn the district’s top defensive player — the honor was won by Graham Delano in 2010.

  • 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.

  • 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.
