  • Griffith has low round of day one

    Halfway through the Los Alamos City Championship golf tournament, the 2010 senior men’s champion is atop the leaderboard.
    And he wouldn’t be at the top of just the senior men’s leaderboad, either.
    Reid Griffith turned in the low round of the day Saturday in all flights. Griffith held off Brian Colby to take the lead after the opening 18 holes of the City tournament.
    Griffith finished with a 73, which would’ve placed him on top of the other two men’s flights as well. However, Colby isn’t far behind, as he finished with a 74, a score that would’ve tied him for the lead in the men’s championship flight.
    The tournament concludes today. Tee time is 9 a.m.

  • Women’s champ holds lead

    When things are going well, things are going well.
    Two-time defending women’s City champion Tami Martinson, who is in the lead after the first round of the 2011 City tournament, got a cherry on top of her round Saturday. Martinson hit the first ace of her career on the eighth hole, rolling a shot right over a bunker and straight into the cup.
    It was a big day for Martinson, who holds a four-stroke lead heading into today’s final round of the City Championship, which is being played at Los Alamos Golf Course. Today’s round is scheduled to tee off at 9 a.m.

  • Ball takes one shot lead in City Championship

    With several players struggling in the opening round Saturday, Ted Ball took advantage.
    Ball connected with some big shots off the tee in the first round of the Los Alamos City Championship to finish with a 74, the low round of the opening 18 holes at Los Alamos Golf Course.
    On a day that most players in the clubhouse said the course was playing considerably longer than usual, Ball came through with his driver, which went a long way to secure the first round edge for him.
    The 64th annual City Championship tournament continues through today at Los Alamos Golf Course. Following the conclusion of the 36-hole event, the top gross and net scores from each of the tournament’s three flights will face off in a nine-hole shootout.

  • Reedy is winner at Pace Race

    It was tough predicting at this week’s Pace Race and although a 42-second error usually isn’t close enough to win, it was this week.
    Bob Reedy not only finished with the top prediction error, he was a solid seven seconds better than runner-up Maddy Foley and 14 seconds better than Pauline Burnside.
    The Pace Race was Tuesday. It was run in Upper Bayo Canyon and North Mesa.
    The fastest finisher on the 1-mile course Tuesday was Marin Kelly, who completed the course in 10 minutes, 22 seconds. Bob Weeks finished in 16:16.
    On the 2-2/3 mile course, the top finishers were Alexander Romero (17:48) and Foley (27:18).
    In all, 24 runners and walkers took part this week.

  • City tournament opens Saturday

    The 64th annual City Championship golf tournament tees off Saturday morning at Los Alamos Golf Course.
    The two-day tournament runs through Sunday, pairing some of the top players in the county. The 36-hole event gets going at 11 a.m. Saturday.
    The 2011 City tournament won’t have the same big participation numbers as did the 2010 event. Last year’s tournament attracted 103 players, which is the record in the event’s 63-year history.
    LAGC head professional Donnie Torres said the City tournament suffered from some schedule-shuffling. LAGC is scheduled to hold two big events in August, including the state women’s amateur championship, and was pushed up to this weekend.

  • White Rock bounced from tourney

    Two big innings by the Silver City All-Stars were enough to knock White Rock out of the state tournament Wednesday in Taos.

    Silver City scored five runs in the top of the third and three more in the fourth. White Rock only managed a pair of single tallies, falling 9-2 and ending its run in the tournament.

    In the third inning, Silver City's Meah McDonald and Leslie Calvillo came through with back-to-back doubles to help their team take control of the game.

    White Rock had a chance to get back into the game in the bottom of the third. Elizabeth Anaya singled in Rebecca Luster early in the inning, but after loading the bases with just one out, couldn't push another run across.

  • Power outages impact Los Alamos residents

    Los Alamos Department of Public Utilities’ electric line crew spent the evening and early morning troubleshooting two underground power outages, one that began late Tuesday evening and the other early Wednesday morning.
     Tuesday evening’s power outage began around 10 p.m. and affected 40 to 50 customers at the Loma Vista Apartments and a small section of Oppenheimer. Crews restored power at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday by running a temporary line above ground to the area.  Linemen are still investigating the root cause so that permanent repairs may be conducted and the temporary line removed.

  • White Rock topped by Eastdale in 3-1/2 innings, 14-2

    TAOS — It was a big early deficit against a very good ballclub and the White Rock All-Stars wouldn’t be able to overcome it.
    Despite going into Tuesday’s semifinal round contest of the state tournament with some good momentum after two come-from-behind wins, the gap was too much to close. Albuquerque’s Eastdale All-Stars got their bats going early, pounding out nine hits in the first two innings and taking advantage of five errors to upend White Rock 14-2 in 3-1/2 innings at Kit Carson Park.
    Eastdale, one of the favorites in the Majors state softball tournament, had nine hits in the first two innings, including four for extra bases, while White Rock could only come up with single tallies in the tops of the second and fourth.
