  • LA nearly pulls off big upset

    ALBUQUERQUE — After a dismal offensive first half, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team got back into its game against the Sandia Matadors in the second half.
    Los Alamos, which trailed by as many as 11 points with 2:51 remaining in the second quarter, rallied to take a 46-43 lead with just over two minutes remaining in regulation.
    But the Matadors’ Carl Meyer put in a layup bucket with 26.3 seconds left which proved to be the difference in the opening round of the Joe Armijo Invitational. The Matadors prevailed 49-48, putting the Hilltoppers into the loser’s bracket of the tournament, which continues through Saturday at Albuquerque Academy.

  • Toppers thumped by Trojans, 55-33

    ALBUQUERQUE — An impressive run in the third quarter by the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team wasn’t enough to make up for an impressive run by the Mayfield Trojans in the first half.
    The Hilltoppers took on the Trojans, the defending Class 5A champion, in the first round of the Joe Armijo Invitational Thursday afternoon at Albuquerque Academy. The Trojans’ pressure defense and quick guards proved to be too much for the Hilltoppers, however, as they fell 55-33 and dropped into the loser’s bracket of the tournament.
    Los Alamos fell behind by as many as 25 points early in the third quarter, but a huge third quarter put it back in the ballgame.

  • Advocate: Fine case is serious

    SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — New York state must lengthen the statute of limitations to bring charges of child sex abuse, a victims’ advocate said in response to a prosecutor’s statement that it’s too late to investigate two men’s claims that they were molested by former Syracuse University assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine.
    Victims of childhood sexual abuse are “denied basic legal rights,” said the Rev. Robert Hoatson of the advocacy group Road to Recovery.
    “If there ever was a case that screamed ‘injustice,’ it is this one, since it glaringly displays the further damage that antiquated laws can inflict on victims,” Hoatson said in a statement.

  • LA will face 12-0-0 Cibola...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper hockey team is hoping to finally host a game at home Friday after its first two scheduled home openers were nixed.
    Los Alamos picked up its first victory of the season Saturday against La Cueva, taking a 4-3 victory, along with earning a forfeit win over Rio Rancho’s Cleveland High School.
    Against La Cueva, the Hilltoppers got four goals from four different skaters to earn a 4-3 victory. Dustin Taylor, Tyler Thorn, Gabriel Intrator and Arnoldo Ortiz all picked up tallies for the Hilltoppers in their victory.

  • Hilltoppers roll past Sartans in...

    So far, so good for the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team.
    Following up on a solid finish against some top teams from around the region last weekend, the Hilltoppers were dominant against the St. Pius X Sartans at home Wednesday.
    Los Alamos earned two pins and a major decision in its first four head-to-head contests against St. Pius, setting the tone for a big 64-16 victory at Auxiliary Gymnasium. Los Alamos earned six pinfalls Wednesday, including 106-pounder Mateo Cardiel, who needed just 20 seconds to stick St. Pius Chris Barger.
    It was the biggest Hilltopper victory in several seasons and the biggest under head coach Bob Geyer.

  • LA boys, girls head to Academy

    It’s one of the toughest tournaments in the state and both the Los Alamos Hilltopper basketball teams are right in the middle of it.
    Both the Hilltopper boys and girls hoops squads will take part in the Joe Armijo Classic starting Thursday. The Armijo Classic is an eight-team tournament hosted by Albuquerque Academy.
    Traditionally, the Armijo Classic has involved some of the top teams in the state and this year is no exception. Included on the boys side of the bracket are three defending state champs, while the reigning 5A champ will be the first round opponent of the Hilltopper girls in the other bracket.
    Los Alamos’ girls will take on Las Cruces Mayfield in the first round of the Armijo tournament. That game is set for 2:45 p.m. Thursday.
