  • Webb picks up fencing ranking

    The Los Alamos Fencing Club sent its top three fencers to the Duel in the Desert in Las Vegas, Nev., earlier this month.
    The Duel in the Desert is one of the top epee events in the U.S. and attracts fencers from across the nation.
    In the Senior Men’s Epee event, Patrick Webb was Los Alamos’ top finisher, taking 29th out of 66 entrants.
    Webb was eliminated in the round of 32 by Eric Hansen, fencing coach at UCLA and the Los Angles International Fencing Centre, in a hard-fought bout that ended at 15-13.
    Hansen, one of the Nation’s top epeeists, has been a frequent member of the U.S. team competing in the World Cup Championships.
    For Webb, the finish at Las Vegas earned him a USFA D2012 ranking.

    For one half, the Los Alamos Hillltopper girls basketball team was able to hang with its arch-rival.
    But in the third quarter of Wednesday’s game, Española Valley’s Sundevils held the Hilltoppers to a lone field goal to pull away and eventually win a critical District 2-4A contest.
    Los Alamos went just 1-for-9 from the floor in that third quarter and turned the ball over five times. Meanwhile, Española Valley’s Lauren Quintana and Cassie Trujillo combined for nine of the team’s 15 third quarter points as the Sundevils took a 52-35 decision at Griffith Gymnasium.
    The win gave the Sundevils sole possession of second place in the 2-4A standings with five regular season district contests remaining.
