  • Girls basketball: Toppers upend Sartans Friday night

    ALBUQUERQUE — While “must-win” might have been too strong of a moniker, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team knew Friday night’s contest was a “probably should win.”
    And the team responded.
    Facing a tough challenger on the road, Los Alamos earned a big victory over the St. Pius X Sartans.
    It was the second of three tough games the Hilltoppers played this week. They lost Tuesday to Class 5A Volcano Vista on the road, then lost to a very good Class 5A team in Sandia Saturday night, 52-33 at home.

  • Boys basketball: Hawks knock off Hilltoppers at home Tuesday

    Facing his former program, Los Alamos boys basketball head coach Matt King had a pretty good idea what to expect.
    The Hilltoppers were looking for a physical, pressure defense and good free throw shooting from the Volcano Vista Hawks and that’s exactly what they saw Tuesday night in a46-38 loss.
    And while the Hilltoppers handled the pressure reasonably well Tuesday, the clutch foul shooting of Volcano Vista’s Mario Molina would ultimately decide the game.
