  • 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.

    Cleveland, a Class 5A school from Rio Rancho, was the big winner on both sides of the tournament Monday. Cleveland’s Storm took both the boys and girls team titles as well as picking up both individual titles.
    The Storm picked up a 20-shot victory over runner-up Bernalillo on the boys’ side and a 47-shot win over Los Alamos in the girls competition.

  • LA shut out at Academy

    A loss to the Albuquerque Academy Chargers always stings, but it’s a lack of effort that will really stick in the craw of the Los Alamos Hillltopper boys soccer team.
    Los Alamos couldn’t get over the hump during Friday’s contest at Academy, the fifth-ranked team in the state. Academy scored a 72nd-minute goal on a crossing pass that got through the defense to the uncovered left flank as it grabbed a 1-0 victory.
    It was the second loss for Los Alamos against Academy this season. Los Alamos was hoping to redeem itself in Friday’s game after taking a 3-2 loss Sept. 10.
    But Friday, Los Alamos simply got beat.
    “I never thought I’d say this, but we got outworked,” Hilltopper head coach Evan Gartz said.

  • LA’s offense, defense come up...

    In 2010, the Bloomfield Bobcats came back from a late deficit with the Los Alamos Hilltopper football team needing just to run out the clock in the fourth quarter.
    Friday night, the Hilltoppers found themselves in much the same position, backed up on their 4-yard line and clinging to a 1-point lead.
    But on a long sideline route on third down, Bloomfield was flagged for pass interference. Then, three plays later, quarterback Danny Finn scrambled down the right side for a big 7-yard pickup to earn another first down which all but sealed the game for the Hilltoppers.
    Los Alamos earned its first win of the season Friday, topping Bloomfield 21-20 at Sullivan Field.

  • ´Toppers blank top-ranked...

    A hot start to the 2011 season had some whispering that this could be the year for the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team to knock off the Albuquerque Academy Chargers.
    Those whispers could get considerably louder now.
    The Hilltoppers, who didn’t have the greatest week coming into Saturday’s contest, losing two straight to a pair of quality opponents, picked up a huge win over their arch-rival Chargers. Forward Amy Neal scored goals in both halves and Katie Hemphill scored near the midpoint of the first half as the Hilltoppers shut out the Chargers, 3-0.

  • LA picks up first win of season...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper football team picked up its first win of the 2011 season, holding off the Bloomfield Bobcats 21-20 at Sullivan Field Friday night.

    Los Alamos got 136 yards on the ground from Arnoldo Ortiz, starting in his first game of the season after breaking his finger during the preseason, while the Hilltopper defense forced two turnovers on their side of the field in the third quarter to help preserve the victory.

    Danny Finn connected with Jared Mang on a 53-yard swing pass in the second quarter, while Ortiz rumbled for a 45-yard score in the third quarter. Ortiz also converted a two-point try following his touchdown run, which proved to be the difference in the game.

  • Kosiewicz lands 40-inch tiger...

    Just before the Las Conchas Fire in late June, local resident Stan Kosiewicz and his wife Amy Anderson went fishing, or, as he calls it “tiger hunting.”
    During a trip to Bluewater Lake, near Grants, Kosiewicz landed a 40-inch tiger muskie, which weight approximately 20-1/2 pounds.
    A tiger muskie is a sterile hybrid of a cross between a purebred muskie and a northern pike. While this cross occasionally occurs in the wild, it happens most often under controlled conditions at a fish hatchery.
    Kosiewicz, who let the fish go because “she was just too cute,” caught the tiger muskie on a 8-inch Koi-colored lure.
