  • Girls basketball: LA bounced by Grants in first round

    GRANTS — A quick-strike rally by the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team at the end of the first half Friday put it within striking distance of the Grants Pirates heading into the break.

    Los Alamos trailed by as many as eight points in the first half of the opening round Class 4A state tournament game against Grants, but cut the Pirates’ lead down to just one possession.

    That would, however, be the last offensive push the Hilltoppers would make for the balance of the ballgame.
