  • LA comes back to win in extras

    ESPAÑOLA – Just two strikes away from losing the District 2-4A lead it had held for nearly a month, the Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team pulled off an improbable seventh inning rally to force extra innings Wednesday.
    But Los Alamos left fielder Kyle Parks lined a single into left field to keep the Hilltoppers alive in their final at-bat of regulation. From there, the Hilltoppers rallied for seven unanswered runs as they topped the Española Valley Sundevils 10-5 in eight innings.

  • Toppers win title with rout of...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team wrapped up the 2012 District 2-4A championship with a big win Wednesday night in Española.
    Monika Teter threw a five-inning no hitter and was just one batter away from a perfect game as the Hilltoppers thumped the Española Valley Sundevils 11-0.
    Los Alamos (16-5 overall, 9-1 in 2-4A) claimed its fourth consecutive district title with the victory and, perhaps more importantly, the district’s automatic bid into next month’s state tournament. Los Alamos scored five runs in the fourth inning and two more in the fifth to close out the game in about an hour.

  • VIDEO: Pat Summitt Steps Aside...

  • Cowboys meet Redskins on...

    IRVING, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys will get to spend a lot of time at home late in the season.
    While the Cowboys already knew they were playing in the NFL’s kickoff game Wednesday, Sept. 5, at the New York Giants, they now know where and when the rest of their games will be.
    The NFL released its full schedule Tuesday night, and Dallas will play five games at Cowboys Stadium in a span of six weeks before its regular-season finale at Washington. But that also means four road games in five weeks before that.
    The NFC East rival Redskins play at Dallas on Thanksgiving Day for the first time since 2002, potentially with Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III from Baylor as their quarterback.

  • Manning, Broncos face Steelers...

    NEW YORK (AP) — The last time the Steelers played, Tim Tebow sent them home from the playoffs with one stunning play.
    The next time Pittsburgh plays a game for real, it also will be in Denver.
    Tebow won’t be the opposing quarterback, though. Peyton Manning will be — and he’s certainly capable of an 80-yard TD pass in overtime.
    The entire nation won’t have to wait long to see Manning in a Broncos uniform. The only four-time league MVP will face the Steel Curtain in prime time on the opening Sunday of the NFL season.
    Folks in the Mile High city haven’t been this excited about their quarterback — no not even about Tebow — since John Elway was leading them to five Super Bowls, winning the last two.
