    Sod sale was a big success
    The Sullivan Field sod sale was a success. The athletic department raised over $18,000 in 2-1/2 days that will be used for equipment and supplies. The money will be used for both the middle school and high school athletic programs.
    The success of the sale is due to all the volunteers, coaches and athletes who donated their time to roll and load sod on pallets. The success is also because of the community who waited patiently in line to buy the sod.  The donations that were given for the sod will help our athletic programs and the high school and middle school continue to be one of the top programs in the state.

  • Baseball: Lobos upend Utes, will...

    SAN DIEGO, Calif. — The University of New Mexico Lobo baseball team beat Utah 6-5 Thursday night and is one win away from the 2011 Mountain West Conference Championship and the automatic bid that would return UNM to the NCAA postseason.
    The Lobos, who struggled throughout the year in finding ways to win close games, picked up their third straight one-run, upset victory in the MWC tourney. The sixth-seeded Lobos have knocked off No. 3 BYU 5-4, No. 1 TCU 4-3 and No. 2 Utah by a single tally.
    Jacob Nelson, who was the hero of Tuesday’s win over BYU, muscled a two-strike single through the infield on the right side to score DJ Peterson for what would become the game-winning run.

  • Running: Weeks is the best Pace...

    Bob Weeks was the top predictor at this week’s Pace Race.
    The Pace Race, a weekly event sponsored by the Atomic City Roadrunners, was held Tuesday at Piñon Park. Tuesday’s race featured a staggered start, where slower predictors started ahead of faster predictors.
    Weeks, on the 1-mile course, missed his prediction by just two seconds. Weeks needed the good prediction, however, as Jackie Marr (three seconds), Ted Romero (three seconds) and Daren Jones (four seconds) were immediately behind him.
    The next Pace Race will be Tuesday. That race will start at the roundabout on Diamond Drive.
    For more information about the next race, call 662-2856. For information about the Atomic City Roadrunners, visit www.atomicrunners.com.

    There is a lot of work to be done before fall rolls around and the Los Alamos Hilltopper football program isn’t wasting any time in getting at it.
    And while getting prepped for the 2011 football season is first priority, setting the groundwork for years to come is also at the top of the to-do list.
    Los Alamos is wrapping up its second week of spring workouts this week, hoping the extra work will pay off this season.
    Teams around New Mexico have the opportunity this season to hold spring workouts. The New Mexico Activities Association, which governs most interscholastic sports at the middle school and high school levels, approved spring workouts early this year in order for teams to get a jump on mandatory practice, which will start Aug. 1.
