  • Boys track and field: LA comes from behind to pick up win at home

    There are still plenty of things to work out for the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys track and field team.
    However, the Hilltoppers have been able to get over some big bumps during this 2011 season, as evidenced by their performance Friday afternoon.
    The Hilltoppers overcame an early disqualification in the 400 meter relay Friday and came back against a solid Aztec Tiger team to win the Los Alamos Classic. The Hilltoppers picked up 124 team points, topping the runner-up Tigers’ total of 100. Hope Christian finished in third with 67 points.
    Los Alamos had strong performances at the end of the meet to earn the come-from-behind victory.

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys golf team finished third in team competition at the Belen Invitational Thursday.
    Thursday’s competition was a make-up round from March 21. That round was called due to high winds and dusty conditions. Play was called after most players had finished approximately 12 holes.
    Los Alamos finished with a team score of 384, one of just three teams to break 400.
    The tournament was won by the host Belen Eagles.
    The Eagles, paced by Daniel Goldberg’s round of 1-under par, finished with a red hot 334, easily outdistancing second-place Socorro’s 362.
    For the Hilltoppers, Thomas Herrera had the low round of the day, finishing with an 83.

  • Baseball: Toppers pick up home win

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team improved to 4-0 on the District 2-4A season, outlasting the Española Valley Sundevils at home Wednesday.
    Los Alamos and Española Valley both put up robust run totals Wednesday, but Los Alamos prevailed 16-10 at Bomber Field.
    The win was the fifth in six outings for Los Alamos, which, now one-third of the way through the 2-4A season, is sitting alone atop the district, two full games over its nearest competitor.
    Los Alamos (7-9 overall) scored 16 runs for the third straight game. Saturday, it swept Santa Fe on the road by scores of 16-2 and 16-0.

  • Softball: LA holds on to top Española Valley Wednesday

    As any softball player in northern New Mexico will say, few things sting the hands as much as a ball hit off the end of the bat on a cold day.
    So when Monika Teter connected with a first-pitch change-up in the sixth inning and she felt no sting at all, she knew the ball was going somewhere.
    “That felt really good,” Teter said. “That’s one of those hits you don’t feel a thing. I’ve had those stings with hitting, but that felt good.”
    Late in Wednesday’s game at Overlook Park, with the temperature dropping and the sparkle rising in the favor of the Española Valley Sundevils, Teter gave her team a much-needed lift.

  • Softball: Toppers, Sundevils open 2-4A play

    Starting today, the Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team will get a shot at defending its District 2-4A crown.
    Los Alamos hosts what has been its toughest district opponent at 4 p.m. Española Valley’s Sundevils will be looking to put the Hilltoppers into an early district hole at Overlook Park in White Rock.
    The Hilltoppers were dominant in the 2010 2-4A race, going a spotless 12-0 against the other four district squads. While the Hilltoppers have been playing better ball in recent weeks, pulling off the same feat in 2011 could be a tall order.
    Manager Roger Anaya said the district race could be a tight one this season and getting off to a good start will be key.
