  • Former Ali trainer Angelo Dundee...

    There was no way Angelo Dundee was going to miss Muhammad Ali’s 70th birthday party.
    The genial trainer got to see his old friend, and reminisce about good times. It was almost as if they were together in their prime again, and what a time that was.
    Dundee died in his apartment in Tampa, Fla., Wednesday night at the age of 90, and with him a part of boxing died, too.
    He was surrounded by his family, said his son, Jimmy, who said the visit with Ali in Louisville, Ky., meant everything to his Dad.
    “It was the way he wanted to go,” the son said. “He did everything he wanted to do.”

  • Sports Update: Ealey signs with...

    Los Alamos track and field superstar Chase Ealey signed her National Letter of Intent Wednesday.
    Ealey, a senior who is among the top track athletes ever to emerge from the Hilltopper program, will join the Division-I Oklahoma State University Cowboys next year. Ealey had been recruited by several colleges in the southwest but made her decision official Wednesday, the first day of the D-I signing period.
    Ealey is the three-time defending Class 4A 100-meter champion and won the javelin and the shot put at the 2011 state meet as well. She was the high-point 4A athlete of the 2011 meet.

  • Invite returns after being...

    “Frozen out but not forgotten” was the theme after the Bryan Sanchez Memorial Invitational wrestling tournament was canceled in 2011.
    The Bryan Sanchez tournament is the main event of each season for the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team, but because of weather issues, along with a statewide natural gas shortage that left thousands in New Mexico without heat as a major cold front swept through the state, the tournament was nixed.
    The frosty and icy conditions may have frozen out the tournament, but not the wrestling community.

  • Lobos rout Air Force, improve to...

    AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) — Still stinging from back-to-back losses to the Mountain West’s other heavyweights, the New Mexico Lobos are taking out their frustrations on everyone else.
    The Lobos got 13 points from both Drew Gordon and Kendall Williams Tuesday night when they handed Air Force an 81-42 drubbing, its most lopsided home loss ever.
    With their third straight double-digit win, the Lobos (18-4, 4-2) moved within a half-game of conference co-leaders No. 11 UNLV and No. 17 San Diego State, the two schools that handed them early losses in league play.
    “Those two letdowns obviously showed us what we need to work on,” Gordon said.
    And they’ve worked on those things very well, indeed.
