  • Girls tennis: LA earns 2 wins in 3 chances at Taos

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls tennis team went 2-1 at this weekend’s Taos Quadrangular.
    The two-day quadrangular was held Friday and Saturday. Los Alamos hosted Española Valley in the first match Friday at home, then faced off against Taos and Farmington in the other two rounds Saturday at the Quail Ridge Inn at Taos.
    The Hilltoppers had little trouble with either Española Valley or Taos, picking up 17 wins in 18 contests. However, against two-timed defending state Class 4A champion Farmington, a team very well positioned to make another state title run in 2011, the Hilltoppers finished on the blank side of a 9-0 shutout.

  • Former LA players earn honor

    A pair of former local athletes have made the Eastern Rocky Mountain Rugby Football Union Select Side.
    Liz Dinkel and Sidney Provan were named to the Select Side team, the rugby equivalent of an All-Star team.
    Dinkel, currently attending Colorado State University, and Provan, of Colorado College, were picked from the rugby programs of several regional colleges, including such schools as University of Colorado, Air Force, Wyoming and several smaller schools in the area.
    If selected for the ERMRFU’s traveling team, Dinkel and Provan would participate in an All-Star Tournament in Kansas.

  • Running: Big crowd drawn to Run for Her Life charity race

    Sunday’s Run for Her Life turned into a bigger deal than race organizers anticipated, so much so that plans are being made to turn it into an annual event.
    The Run for Her Life, held on Mesa Trail behind East Park, was a 5K and 10K run, the proceeds of which went to benefit breast cancer research.
    More than 120 participants took part in the Run for Her Life, which was hosted by the local chapter of Hadassah and the Atomic City Roadrunners. It raised more than $6,000 for research.
    Alexander Romero of Los Alamos (19:28) and Sophia Torres of Cordova (21:26) were the top finishers in the 5K race, while Wayne Chick (40:42) and Erica Baron (40:49) posted the best times in the 10K race.

  • Softball: LA scores 5 times in fourth to drop Pojoaque

    A big five-run rally in the fourth inning, aided by four errors, put Tuesday’s game away for the Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team.
    Los Alamos hosted its downhill rival, the Pojoaque Elks, Tuesday at Overlook Park in just its second home appearance of the season. Los Alamos scored 10 runs in a three-inning span and tacked on another in the bottom of the sixth to close out the game early, topping Pojoaque 11-1.
    Along with the big offensive effort, Hilltopper pitcher Monika Teter struck out five of the first six batters she faced and gave up just one unearned run on the afternoon as she earned her second victory at home.

  • Men's basketball: Tide knocks Lobos out of NIT

    TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Trevor Releford's speedy drives, Tony Mitchell's high-flying dunks and an effective dose of full-court pressure kept Alabama alive in the National Invitation Tournament.

    Mitchell scored 23 points and Releford matched his career-high with 20 to lead the Crimson Tide to a 74-67 win over New Mexico Monday night in the second round of the NIT.

    The Tide (23-11), mostly known for its defense, made 15 of 20 shots in the second half to move into the quarterfinals. Alabama will host Miami on Wednesday night, aiming for its sixth trip to the NIT final four at Madison Square Garden.

    Spring golf opener cut short by wind

    The spring season opener for the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys golf team was cut short Monday.
    Los Alamos started a round at the Belen Invitational Monday morning, but wind speeds were hitting 50 mph during play. The wind and accompanying dust made the Tierra Del Sol course virtually unplayable.
    Hilltopper head coach John Stam said the tournament, one of five scheduled for his team this spring, may be rescheduled for April 7.
