  • Cross country: LA girls pick up big win at Rio Rancho

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls cross country team pulled off a huge victory Saturday at the Rio Rancho Jamboree.
    Los Alamos’ girls topped a powerful Class 5A Eldorado Eagles squad to take the title at the Jamboree, one of the biggest event of their season.
    In all, 22 teams competed on the girls side Saturday and 29 on the boys side.
    The Hilltopper girls finished with a scant 67 points, a very good total for such a big meet, taking four of the top 20 individual spots.

  • Volleyball: Toppers knock off Spartans on road

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team wanted to get up early on the Bernalillo Spartans, the squad that’s so far given it the toughest time in District 2AAAA play, and stay there.
    And Saturday afternoon, that’s exactly what the Hilltoppers did.
    Los Alamos routed Bernalillo in the first set of Saturday’s contest, 25-9, then kept its mojo going into the second set, taking that frame 25-13. Los Alamos held on in the third set for a 25-21 win and the sweep.

  • LA football upends Santa Fe Friday night

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper football team came back from 14 points down in the second half to upset the visiting Santa Fe Demons.

    Hilltopper running back Mike Sanchez went 68 yards for a score late in the fourth quarter to give the Hilltoppers a 19-14 victory Friday at Sullivan Field. Sanchez broke out of a pack at the line of scrimmage, cut left and went down the left hash straight to the end zone.

    The win keeps the Hilltoppers (2-6 overall, 1-1 in 2AAAA) alive in their quest for a district title in Garett Williams’ first season as head coach.

  • Soccer: Teams wrapping up regular season, turn eye to upcoming postseason

    When it comes to seeding for the postseason Class AAAA soccer tournaments, the past several seasons have been more about juggling a place or two.
    Arguments over which teams should be No. 1, 2 or 3 have been far more common than which teams should be in the top four and which teams shouldn’t.
    However, with brackets scheduled to be released in just over one week, the 2010 postseason isn’t shaking out to be so cut-and-dried.
