  • LA-WR picks up 16-8 win to...

    After falling behind the Pojoaque All-Stars early, the Los Alamos-White Rock All-Stars put up big numbers in the middle innings to win the opener of the District 1 Junior baseball tournament.
    Pojoaque scored eight runs on just three hits in the first three innings Monday at Senior Field on North Mesa, but the LA-WR squad scored five runs in the third, three in the fourth and five more in the fifth to win going away, 16-8.
    The game was a marathon affair, taking over 3-1/2 hours to finish up seven innings.
    The game was slowed by a slew of walks and a protest by Pojoaque that required a ruling from Little League officials in Waco, Texas, before being denied.

  • LA-WR Majors All-Stars face...

    The combined Los Alamos-White Rock All-Star Majors division team will play Española’s All-Stars tonight at Lou Caveglia Field.
    In its opener Sunday, LA-WR topped Santa Fe Metro to advance to tonight’s contest, while Española topped Santa Fe National. Española defeated Pojoaque in the tournament opener Saturday night while LA-WR had a bye.
    The winner of that game will have two shots at the District 1 championship while tonight’s loser will have to win three straight games to earn the district title. Tonight’s winner will also have the added bonus of getting Wednesday night off.

  • Viloria has perfect prediction

    Isolina Viloria couldn’t have done much better at this week’s Pace Race.
    The Pace Race is a weekly run hosted by the Atomic City Roadrunners. This week’s race was Tuesday night on pavement and on the trails behind the Larry R. Walkup Aquatic Center.
    Not only was Viloria the fastest female finisher on the 1-mile trail course — there was both a paved and trail course for Tuesday’s race — she also earned a perfect finish time prediction. Duane Marr finished second with a six-second prediction error, while Anya Gonzales (99 seconds off) was the only other competitor to finish with an error less than triple digits.

  • Baseball tourneys start up this...

    The winners of the district tournaments will advance to the state tournaments later this month.
    Also this weekend, the White Rock 9/10 All-Stars will begin their district tournament at Alto Park in Santa Fe. The 9/10’s opening round game is set for Saturday.

  • WR-LA head to regionals

    The White Rock-Los Alamos Little League Junior All-Star softball team broke open a tight ballgame in the sixth inning to win the District 1 championship Tuesday night.

    With the win, WR-LA earned an automatic bid into the Little League regional championship, which will be played in Santa Fe Aug. 3-7 — the host district gets an automatic bid into regionals, which is just one step from the Little League World Series.
