    Coles and Vigil led their teams to District 2AAAA titles in 2010-11, while Coles spearheaded a late run in the Class 4A championship game as Española Valley topped Goddard, giving the Sundevils their first boys basketball title in school history.

  • Football: NFL to get tough on...

    The NFL will be more aggressive in suspending players next season for illegal hits, and also could make changes to instant replay and kickoffs.

  • Wrestling: Grapplers compete at...

    Wrestlers from Los Alamos grabbed five top-five finishes at the Greater Southwest Nationals tournament last month.

  • Tarheels are sure to exit early...

    Seriously, I don’t even know why I bother.
    Every year, I go through the time-wasting trouble of filling out a bracket for the NCAA men’s basketball tournament.

  • Men's basketball: Johnson...

    DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — The individual best performance in the "First Four" came from a guard who insists he's in a shooting slump.

    Melvin Johnson III scored a career-high 29 points during Texas-San Antonio's 70-61 win over Alabama State. He outscored the Hornets 25-21 in the first half, hitting one open shot after another while wearing bright orange shoes with "SWISH" scribbled on the sides.

  • Softball: LA picks up important...

    For the past several seasons, the Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team has found itself on several occasions just a hit or two away from victory.
    In too many of those scenarios, however, the Hilltoppers haven’t been able to find that hit or two.
    So it was refreshing for Los Alamos manager Roger Anaya to see his team come up with some clutch hitting to help put away a stout Class 4A opponent Tuesday afternoon at Overlook Park.

  • Baseball: A cloud of dust

    Hilltopper Jared Mang (14) tries to field a throw at second base as Hope Christian’s Ian Sutton slides into the bag. Hope Christian won Thursday’s game at Bomber Field 13-5, dropping Los Alamos to 0-6 on the 2011 season.

  • Men's basketball: No clear-...

    Every year when the NCAA tournament bracket comes out, there’s a team, maybe a couple that stand out.
    Last year, to a certain extent, it was Duke. Kansas, with those five future pros, was the bracket behemoth in 2008 and Florida was the no-brainer in 2007.
    This year, there doesn’t seem to be that one team that’ll be at the top of everyone’s bracket. It’s probably closer to a dozen. Heck, there are five or six teams just in the Big East that could be considered legitimate title contenders.
