  • Girls basketball: Toppers drop...

    When it rained, it poured.
    Unfortunately for the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team, it couldn’t even slow down the torrent in the second half of Wednesday’s game at Española Valley.
    After keeping within striking distance through the first half Wednesday at Edward Medina Gymnasium, Los Alamos was hit with a barrage of 3-pointers from the Sundevils. At the same time, Los Alamos’ offense, which had been working well heading in, sputtered in the third quarter and stalled completely in the fourth.

  • Tennis: Federer joins Nadal on...

    MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — First Rafael Nadal, now Roger Federer.

    Federer, the 16-time Grand Slam winner, was knocked out of the Australian Open 7-6 (3), 7-5, 6-4 Thursday by 2008 champion Novak Djokovic.

  • Girls basketball: LA falls at...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team struggled in the second half of Wednesday night’s game in the valley, falling big to its arch-rival.

    Española Valley’s Sundevils held Los Alamos to just three second half field goals as they went on to a big 64-33 victory Wednesday in Española.

    The win puts the Sundevils at 3-0 in the District 2AAAA race and sole possession of first place. The Hilltoppers slipped to second in the district chase.

    For more information on the game, read Thursday’s Monitor.

  • Boys basketball: Sundevils...

    The game plan couldn’t have been much better for the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team Tuesday night.
    But, once again, Los Alamos couldn’t find the bucket when it had the opportunities.
    Los Alamos, trying to slay the District 2AAAA beast that is Española Valley, held the fast-charging Sundevil offense to under 50 points. However, the Hilltopper offense, which again misfired on several high-percentage looks, couldn’t keep pace.

  • Girls basketball: Toppers,...

    If you thought the Los Alamos-Española Valley boys basketball game Tuesday night was the only big hoops game of the week, you’re wrong.
    The girls game between Los Alamos’ Hilltoppers and Española Valley’s Sundevils tonight should have just as much, if not more, impact on the eventual outcome of District 2AAAA.
    Tonight’s game is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Edward Medina Gymnasium in Española.

  • 'Greening' out Griffith

    The fans were rowdy at Tuesday night’s boys basketball game. The Los Alamos Hilltoppers took on the Española Valley Sundevils, the No. 2-ranked team in the state Tuesday at Griffith Gymnasium. The theme for Tuesday’s game was “Green Out Griffith” to show support for the Hilltoppers.

    Unfortunately, the Hilltoppers struggled in the second half  and the Sundevils came away with the victory in the important District 2AAAA contest. Check lamonitor.com for an exclusive photo gallery.

     

  • Football: Chicago car salesman...

    OAK LAWN, Ill. (AP) — A car salesman in suburban Chicago has been fired for refusing to remove a Green Bay Packers tie that he wore to work the day after the Packers beat the Chicago Bears to advance to the Super Bowl.

    John Stone says he wore the Packers tie to work Monday at Webb Chevrolet in Oak Lawn to honor his late grandmother, who was a big Green Bay fan.
