    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls tennis team opened its season with a third place finish this weekend.

    Los Alamos grabbed 43 points to take third place at the Carlsbad Invitational tournament this weekend, good enough for third place at the 8-team tournament. At the same tournament, the Hilltopper boys finished sixth with 13 points.

    The host Carlsbad Cavemen earned wins in both the boys and girls sides. Los Alamos' boys had their three-year winning streak snapped this weekend.

  • Girls basketball: Toppers fall in 2AAAA title game vs. Sundevils

    ESPAÑOLA — Trying to pry the District 2AAAA title out of Española Valley’s grip proved difficult for the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team, even with Española Valley struggling to get the ball in the hole.

    Los Alamos had its best team defensive effort of the season against Española Valley in the District 2AAAA tournament championship game Saturday, holding its opponent to just a 14-for-41 shooting night (34.1 percent).

  • Boys basketball: Capital stuns Española Valley to win district crown

    The Capital Jaguars, the No. 2 seed in the District 2AAAA boys basketball tournament, upset the top-seeded Española Valley Sundevils 44-43 in overtime Friday.

    The win gives the Jaguars the 2AAAA championship. The Sundevils, who went 7-1 in 2AAAA play, were the regular season champs.

    After going more than three calendar years without losing a district game, the Sundevils have now lost two straight district contests, both of them at home. They were defeated by the Bernalillo Spartans in the regular season finale.

  • Girls basketball: Big 4th quarter lifts LA over Spartans

    The playoffs, for all intents and purposes, started Thursday for the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team.

    And what the Hilltoppers saw Thursday is what they’re probably going to see for the balance of their 2010-11 season.

    Los Alamos struggled with the trapping pressure of the Bernalillo Spartans for much of Thursday’s District 2AAAA tournament semifinal game. However, Los Alamos made some big buckets in crunch time to pull away late and upend Bernalillo 44-31.
