  • Girls golf: Toppers finish second at 2-day Kirtland Central Invite

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls golf team showed signs of getting back in the swing of things this spring season at this week’s Kirtland Central Invitational.
    Los Alamos, which struggled in its first two tournaments of the spring 2011 season, had its best showing so far in Tuesday’s round of the Kirtland Central tournament. The tournament was hosted by the Kirtland Central Broncos, regarded as one of the teams to beat in the upcoming Class 4A championship.
    In less than ideal weather conditions Tuesday, the Hilltoppers posted their best score since the fall season.

  • 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.

  • Boys track and field: LA takes 7th at Harper meet

    Kyle Stephens had flirted with a state qualifying mark in the high jump earlier this season, but this weekend he not only made that mark but earned a huge win with it.
    Stephens not only cleared 6 feet for the first time this season but won the high jump competition at this weekend’s Richard A. Harper Memorial Invitational.
    Los Alamos’ boys track and field team finished seventh at the Harper Invitational, one of the toughest regular season meets in the state. It finished with 27 points, second among Class 4A teams at the meet behind host Albuquerque Academy’s 37 points.

  • Girls track and field: ´Toppers come out on top at Harper Invite this weekend

    If there was any lingering doubt about which team was the favorite heading into the Class 4A girls state meet in 2011, that doubt was removed this weekend.
    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls came out on top of a stacked field at this weekend’s Richard A. Harper Invitational. The Harper Invitational, one of the most competitive regular season meets in the state, was hosted by Albuquerque Academy.
    The Hilltoppers, again led by Laura Wendelberger and Chase Ealey, picked up 65.5 points, topping a pair of the top Class 5A schools in the state, Eldorado and La Cueva, along the way.
    The win immediately cements Los Alamos as the team to beat again at the 4A state meet, which is scheduled for May 13-14. Los Alamos is the two-time defending state champ.

  • Softball: LA earns two wins at Española Valley

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper softball got its long road trip started off on the right foot Saturday.
    Los Alamos picked up wins in both ends of a big District 2-4A doubleheader Saturday, closing both games against the Española Valley Sundevils out in five innings.
    In the valley, the Hilltoppers dropped the Sundevils 14-4 in the opener, then followed that up with a 16-3 win in the nightcap. The wins improved the Hilltoppers to 7-1 in 2-4A play (12-10 overall) and put them a full game ahead of the Santa Fe Demons atop the district standings.
    Los Alamos still has four district games remaining, including three against the two teams that are still alive in the 2-4A race, but getting past Española Valley Saturday could provide a big boost.

    The win in the second game of Saturday’s twinbill at Española Valley clinched the third straight district title for Los Alamos.
