  • 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.

  • Girls tennis: Toppers place third at tournament

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls tennis team placed third at its home-away-from-home invitational Saturday.
    Los Alamos hosted a singles and doubles tournament Saturday. However, because Los Alamos lacks a centralized location to hold a big tournament, it was played at Capital High School in Santa Fe.
    The Hilltoppers finished with nine team points in the tournament, which included three singles draws and two doubles draws.
    Not surprisingly, the Farmington Scorpions, the two-time defending Class 4A champions and the odds-on favorites to win again in 2011, easily claimed the team title. Farmington grabbed 30 points at the tournament, more than the next three teams combined. Rio Rancho’s Sue Cleveland finished in second place with 12 points.

    The Tigers, the No. 2 team in Class 3A according to the latest coaches’ poll, held the Hilltoppers to just six hits and played a clean defensive game, making the going tough.
