  • Girls track and field: Wendelberger turning into a star in 4A

    At first sight, she doesn’t stand out. It’s not until one looks at the stat sheet on her blossoming track and field career that Laura Wendelberger catches the eye.
    Wendelberger, a sophomore, isn’t tall, something that most top high jumpers or hurdlers tend to have in common. But that doesn’t seem to be an issue for her.
    Heading into Saturday’s regular season-ending home meet for the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls track and field meet, Wendelberger has already qualified for four different events, including both lengths of hurdles, the high jump and the long jump. Only a handful of other Class 4A athletes in the state have made the cut in four events this season.

  • Tennis: Toppers are the favorites heading into tourney

    Usually the question for the Los Alamos Hilltopper tennis teams heading into the district championships is not whether they will win, but how much will they win by.
    Unfortunately for the rest of the teams in District 2-4A, 2011 isn’t shaping up to be an exception to that rule.
    Both the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls tennis teams will go in as the heavy favorites to continue their domination of District 2-4A Friday. The district tournament starts Friday and continues through Saturday in Santa Fe.
    At the district tournament, the district’s team entries into state as well as the individual entries into the singles and doubles draws will be determined.

The tournament was hosted by the Kirtland Central Broncos, regarded as one of the teams to beat in the upcoming Class 4A championship.

  • Girls golf: Toppers shoot 380 in first round at Kirtland Central

    After two straight struggles to open the spring 2011 season, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls golf team showed signs it might be getting back on track.
    Los Alamos finished with a team score of 380 shots in the opening round of the Kirtland Central Invitational. Los Alamos was just one of three teams playing both rounds of the tournament — Kirtland Central and Farmington were the others.
    The Hilltoppers were expecting a big showing this spring but things got off to a rocky start. The Hilltoppers struggled at the Ruidoso Invitational two weeks ago and didn’t see much better results at last week’s Los Alamos Spring Invitational.
    Hilltopper head coach Mike Lippiatt said he felt better about Monday’s round in Farmington.
