  • Lucero, Aztec top All-State 4A...

    Aztec’s Adam Lucero was named the top quarterback of Class 4A for 2011.
    Lucero was among six players from the 4A champion Aztec Tiger team that was named first team All-State. The All-State teams were announced Tuesday by the New Mexico High School Coaches Association.
    No one from the Los Alamos Hilltoppers was selected for either the first or second teams this season.
    Lucero led Aztec to its first-ever football title, with the Tigers upsetting the Goddard Rockets in the championship game.
    Aztec, Goddard and Valencia, which were among the top teams in the state most of the season, dominated the first team selections. No player from District 2-4A was picked for All-State honors this season.

  • LA picks up 3 All-State honors...

    A trio of Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball players earned All-State second team honors for the 2011 season.
    The 2011 All-Class 4A teams were announced Monday by the New Mexico High School Coaches Association.
    Senior Chase Ealey and a pair of juniors, Danielle Ortiz and Savanah Romero, were selected for the second team All-Class 4A. Ealey was chosen as an outside hitter, Romero as a setter and Ortiz as a libero.
    There was not a separate category this year for defensive specialist.
    Los Alamos finished the season going 19-4 and advanced to the state Class 4A semifinals before once again falling to St. Pius X.
    Artesia, the state 4A champion this season, led all teams with four first-team nods. St. Pius earned three first-team slots.

  • LA finishes fifth at Jaguar...

    SANTA FE – It was a long day but it was a good day.
    After struggling at the 2010 Jaguar Invitational Tournament, the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team had a top-five showing at the 2011 event, picking up seven medals.
    The Hilltoppers finished Saturday’s Jaguar Invitational with 110.0 points, good enough for fifth place. The Hilltoppers actually started the final round in third place, but strong finishes by both Deming and Capital, along with an unfortunate turn of events for Los Alamos 220-pounder Diego Madrid, saw the team slip.
    “(Seven) medals is pretty good,” Los Alamos head coach Bob Geyer said. “Last year we just did one and this year’s tournament I thought was tougher than last year’s.”

  • Griffin tops Luck to win Heisman...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Robert Griffin III beat out preseason favorite Andrew Luck for the Heisman Trophy, dazzling voters with his ability to throw, run and lead Big 12 doormat Baylor into the national rankings.
    The junior quarterback known as RG3 became the first Heisman winner from Baylor on Saturday night by a comfortable cushion over the Stanford star.
    Griffin started the season on the fringe of the Heisman conversation, a talented and exciting player on a marginal team, while Luck was already being touted as a No. 1 NFL draft pick.
    Draft day might very well still belong to Luck, but Griffin diverted the Heisman to Waco, Texas, to a school that has never had a player finish better than fourth in the voting — and that was 48 years ago.

  • Lobos pick up big win over USC

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Steve Alford summed up his team’s performance in one simple word.
    Despite the lack of style points, the result was all he cared about.
    Tony Snell hit two free throws with 1:27 left to put New Mexico ahead, and the Lobos held on to beat Southern California 44-41 on Saturday.
    The Lobos went without a field goal for the final 14:16, but made 11 free throws in that span to fend off the Trojans.
    “It was ugly,” Alford said. “We got careless. We got bored, really. But we found a way to win. And that’s all that really matters.”
