  • ´Toppers hold on to top Jaguars...

    It was a struggle for both teams, to be sure, but the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team picked up a crucial win Saturday afternoon.
    Los Alamos got, and needed, just one score as it took on the Capital Jaguars. David Stroud picked up a goal off an assist from Henry Steinkamp at the 20-minute mark of the first half.
    That goal, setup by a nifty dribbling effort by Steinkamp, proved to be the difference in the contest as the Hilltoppers held on for a 1-0 victory at Sullivan Field.
    Saturday’s game pitted the No. 5-ranked Hilltoppers against the No. 6-ranked Jaguars, who have put together a stellar nondistrict season.
    But the contest was highlighted by some big plays from the Hilltopper defense.

  • LA closes Capital out early at...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team needed just 55 minutes and 13 seconds to finish the first half of the District 2-4A season with a spotless record Saturday.
    The Hilltoppers scored five goals in each half to trample the Capital Jaguars 10-0 at Sullivan Field.
    Both Amy Neal and Leslie Guarello finished with hat tricks in Saturday’s contest. Neal and Guarello both scored two goals in the first half and Neal closed out the contest with a goal off an assist from Megan Kober.
    Los Alamos is seeking its fifth straight district championship this season. Through the first three district contests, Los Alamos has outscored Bernalillo, Santa Fe and Capital by a combined 18-0.

  • Girls are 3rd, boys 4th in...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls cross country team finished third in the Milesplit Sweepstakes race at the Desert Twilight Festival, while the Hilltopper boys were fourth in the Sole Sports Boys Sweepstakes.
    The Desert Twilight Festival, a region-wide cross country meet, was Friday night in Phoenix, Ariz. The event, which included some of the top racers in the southwest, was held on the same course that will be used for the Nike Cross National regional qualifying meet following the prep regular season.
    The Hilltopper girls finished with 148 points to take the third-place finish. They were paced by Jennifer Mooday, who cracked the top 10 on the 3.1-mile course with her time of 18:37.

  • 'Toppers pull off...

    Two weeks ago against the Bloomfield Bobcats, the Los Alamos Hilltopper football team looked like it might be ready to turn a corner.

    After a better-than-expected showing against Belen a week after that, the Hilltoppers got a big shot of confidence.

    But even with those solid performances, few could’ve predicted what happened Friday night in the Hilltoppers’ Homecoming contest.

    Los Alamos, going up against the No. 4-ranked team in Class 3A, the Albuquerque Academy Chargers, scored three unanswered touchdowns in the first half and held the Chargers, one of the top-rushing teams in the state, without an offensive touchdown for a 36-20 upset win at Sullivan Field.

  • Hilltoppers upend Chargers in...

    The front line of the Los Alamos Hilltopper football team outmuscled the Albuquerque Academy Chargers Friday night en route to an upset win for Homecoming.

    Los Alamos fullback Arnoldo Oritz rushed for 200 yards and scored a touchdown as the Hilltoppers tripped up the favored Chargers 36-20 at Sullivan Field.

    The Hilltoppers scored three unanswered touchdowns in the first half after the Chargers returned an errant lateral pass for a touchdown on the Hilltoppers’ first possession.

    But Los Alamos used some big plays throughout the contest, including runs of 24, 33 and 35 yards by Ortiz and a 50-yard touchdown pass from Danny Finn to Cory Geyer in the first quarter.

  • 'Toppers face tough test on...

    Unlike most other teams, the Los Alamos Hilltopper football team won’t be coming home to an easy victory.
    For the 2011 Homecoming game, the Hilltoppers will take on a very tough Albuquerque Academy Chargers’ squad. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.

    Tonight’s game is also the finale of Los Alamos’ non-district season. It hosts Bernalillo next week in its first District 2-4A contest.

    While getting a victory for Homecoming is always nice, Los Alamos is far more concerned right now about preparing for the district season.

    It will, however, be going into the game with some momentum.
