  • LA looks to keep confidence level up this year

    An impressive showing during the summer has the Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team filled with confidence going into the 2011 season.
    But with a tough early season schedule, the Hilltoppers could well need all the confidence they can muster.
    Los Alamos opens its 2011 campaign Saturday afternoon at home. It will host a very tough customer, the Pojoaque Elks, to kick off the season.

  • Hilltoppers close out Eagles in 68 minutes to win opener

    The weather was hot and so was the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team’s offense in its season opener Tuesday.
    The Hilltoppers scored six times in a 25-minute span during the second half Tuesday to close out their opener against the Belen Eagles. Five different Hilltoppers got into the scoring column in the second half as Los Alamos crushed Belen 10-0 in 68 minutes.
    The temperature hovered near 100 degrees at Belen, so Los Alamos head coach Jiri Kubicek kept shuffling personnel in and out of the game.
    Those that got into the game responded very well.
    “Belen doesn’t show much,” Kubicek said. “It was pretty one-sided, but it was a good way to get started.”

  • 'Toppers looking for a repeat performance in 2011

    It was one of the crowning moments in the history of Los Alamos High School boys soccer.

    In 2010, the Los Alamos Hilltoppers thumped the Belen Eagles in the Class 4A championship game, 4-0, to claim its first state title in 24 years.

    But that was then and this is now. With nine seniors, most of them starters, graduating from that team it would seem unlikely the 2011 Hilltoppers will be in the same position to contend.

    Or is it? The Hilltoppers don’t seem to think so.

    “I feel like we’re confident this year,” Hilltopper Zeke Zumbro said during practice Tuesday as the team preps for its season opener Thursday. “Last year, we were really confident and I feel the same confidence this year.”

  • Work on Sullivan Field is still ongoing

    Things are still progressing at Sullivan Field, although not as quickly as Los Alamos High School’s athletic department was hoping.
    Workers from Academy Sports Turf of Englewood, Colo., began laying down the new artificial surface at Sullivan Field this weekend and as of Monday had much of the football playing area on the ground.
    However, the renovation at Sullivan Field, which began in mid-May and was scheduled to wrap up on or about Aug. 18, has fallen well behind schedule.

  • Regan, Zymetsev take top honors in LA Triathlon

    It came as little surprise that the 2011 Los Alamos Triathlon, a sprint-type event, was dominated by a guy who would barely consider it a warm-up.
    Professional triathlete Viktor Zyemtsev cruised to victory Saturday morning at the Los Alamos Triathlon. Zyemtsev was the only competitor in the race to break the 1-hour mark, crossing the finish line in 56 minutes, 33 seconds, more than 3-1/2 minutes better than his next-closest competitor, Los Alamos’ Jeff Johnson.
    The Los Alamos Triathlon returned after a semi-hiatus in 2010. Last year’s race was dubbed an “aquathlon” by Los Alamos County with the 20-kilometer bike leg, traditionally the first leg of the triathlon, nixed due to construction along Diamond Drive.
