  • Toppers tripped up by Academy

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper C team football squad fell to the Albuquerque Academy Chargers Monday on the road.
    Los Alamos scored three touchdowns in the second half, but those touchdowns weren’t enough to get it back in the contest. The Chargers rolled to a 59-22 victory.
    Los Alamos C team coach Marco Lucero said his team was able to move the ball effectively through most of the contest but some costly turnovers and penalties in the first half did in three potential scoring drives.
    Academy led 28-0 at halftime.
    In the second half, Los Alamos quarterback Bryce Van Etten threw a pair of touchdown passes, one to Sidney Ellis and another to Scott Gasway. Van Etten also ran for a touchdown on a quarterback keeper.

  • Pojoaque’s rallies sink Los Alamos in opener

    As Garry Maskaly said heading into Saturday’s opening match for the Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team, getting over the mental stumbling block that is the Pojoaque Elks would be its big challenge.
    Unfortunately, Los Alamos wasn’t able to clear it.
    Los Alamos put together several good attacks throughout, but couldn’t string enough together to keep pace with Pojoaque’s big rallies.
    Pojoaque, the top-ranked team in Class 3A heading into the regular season, showed it was worthy of that ranking with an impressive 25-20, 25-13, 25-27, 25-14 victory in Griffith Gymnasium Saturday afternoon.
