  • NFL: no faking injuries

    NEW YORK (AP) — To the fake handoff and fake field goals, add fake injuries.
    The NFL sent a memo Wednesday to all 32 teams warning of fines, suspensions and loss of draft picks if the league determines players faked injuries during a game. Yet several players admit it’s an accepted practice.
    “I’ve been places where it has been (taught),” said Browns linebacker Scott Fujita, a member of the players’ union executive committee. “They have a name for it and I’ve been places where it’s been pre-called. I’ve been places where it’s one player who has been designated. Maybe I’m getting everyone in trouble, but I’m just being honest.”

  • LA travels to Belen Friday

    Hilltopper quarterback Danny Finn barks the snap count at the line during last week’s win against Bloomfield. Los Alamos won its first game of the season at Sullivan Field, but travels to take on sixth-ranked Belen Friday.

  • Toppers, Chargers to tangle...

    Los Alamos’ Hilltoppers and Albuquerque Academy’s Chargers will face off for the second time during the 2011 cross country season on the Chargers’ home turf.
    Los Alamos will take part in the Albuquerque Academy Invitational Friday afternoon. The invitational, a mid-sized meet that nonetheless usually boasts a crop of good talent, is run on the dusty trails on Academy’s expansive campus.
    The Hilltoppers are perennial competitors at the Academy Invitational. In the 2010 race, the Hilltopper girls finished fourth in the team standings, running without one of their top athletes, Victoria Honnell, while the Hilltopper boys were third overall.

  • NMAA votes to keep Santa Fe in 4A

    District 2-4A will remain intact for the next two-year block of time, the New Mexico Activities Association determined Wednesday.
    Santa Fe High School will keep its status as a Class 4A team and will remain in the district along with Los Alamos, Bernalillo, Española Valley and cross-town rival Capital, the NMAA determined at its Board of Directors meeting.
    The NMAA is the governing body of most interscholastic prep sports in the state and determines the districts in which its member schools compete.
    When enrollment figures came out during the summer, it was determined by the NMAA that Santa Fe had surpassed the threshold of Class 4A enrollment, currently 1,650 students. Beyond 1,650 students, teams move up to Class 5A.

  • ´Toppers bounce back from slow...

    It wasn’t the kind of performance a top-rated team was supposed to have against a huge underdog in the first half Tuesday night.
    Instead of packing things up and heading for home at halftime of Tuesday’s girls soccer game between the heavily-favored Los Alamos Hilltoppers and Bernalillo Spartans, the Hilltoppers were trying to figure out why they still had a zero on the scoreboard.
    Los Alamos, which looked to be sleepwalking through most of the first half, finally got on track in the second half, attacking the Bernalillo goal consistently and finding the net en route to a win 4-0 in its District 2-4A opener. Los Alamos scored three times in about nine minutes during the second half and tacked on a late goal for good measure to top the Spartans.

  • LA opens district season with 4-...

    In its District 2-4A boys soccer opener, the Los Alamos Hilltoppers were facing a team that’s something of an X-factor.
    The Hilltoppers hosted the Bernalillo Spartans Tuesday afternoon at Sullivan Field. The Spartans, who came in with a near-.500 record and boasted one of the top scorers in Class 4A, made the contest a little more interesting, halving the Hilltoppers’ lead midway through the second half.
    But Los Alamos scored a pair of unanswered goals later in the second half to take a 4-1 victory over Bernalillo. Ryan Kniss, who also had an assist Tuesday, scored with about 13 minutes remaining and Colin Stone added another goal right at the end of regulation to seal the win.

  • Rivera earns save 602

    NEW YORK (AP) — Now that save No. 602 is behind him, Mariano Rivera is happy to step back out of the spotlight and work on another big number: six.
    Despite five World Series championships in 17 seasons with the New York Yankees, Rivera has never come to enjoy individual attention.
    “You know me, I’m not like that,” Rivera said. “I like to be under the radar, do my job.”
    There was no chance of that Monday. when the smallest crowd in the three-year history of Yankee Stadium nearly drowned out Metallica’s “Enter Sandman” as Rivera came in for the ninth inning.
