  • Cam Do! Auburn wins BCS title 22...

    GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Auburn running back Michael Dyer never heard any whistle, so he just kept running — past the tackler who thought he had him down and deep into Oregon territory.

    Dyer broke stride, then took off on a once-in-a-lifetime run in the final minutes, setting up a short field goal on the last play that led No. 1 Auburn over the No. 2 Ducks 22-19 in the BCS championship game Monday night.

  • Girls basketball: Toppers upend...

    ALBUQUERQUE — While “must-win” might have been too strong of a moniker, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team knew Friday night’s contest was a “probably should win.”
    And the team responded.
    Facing a tough challenger on the road, Los Alamos earned a big victory over the St. Pius X Sartans.
    It was the second of three tough games the Hilltoppers played this week. They lost Tuesday to Class 5A Volcano Vista on the road, then lost to a very good Class 5A team in Sandia Saturday night, 52-33 at home.

  • Swim teams earn victories at home

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls swimming and diving teams cruised to victory over their two opponents Saturday.
    With just the three competing teams in attendance, Los Alamos’ girls racked up point to hold off Taos, while in the boys competition, Los Alamos grabbed 513 points, easily topping runner-up Hope Christian.

  • LA wrestlers win one of five...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team took one victory in five duals matches at the Moriarty Invitational Saturday.
    Los Alamos, wrestling for the first time in nearly a month, got off to a slow start at the Moriarty dual meet, hosted by the Pintos, one of the top Class 4A teams in the state. However, Los Alamos regrouped quickly to pick up a win over Sandia in its second contest of the day.
    The Hilltoppers topped Sandia’s Matadors by a final of 39-30. They would lose to Del Norte 31-18, Moriarty 60-18, Las Vegas Robertson 51-12 and Santa Fe 37-24.

  • The playoffs: more fun than...

    Bad news.
    Brett Favre is going to retire.
    Maybe.
    For a good percentage of the football fans I know, that’s incentive enough not to watch the NFL playoffs. A playoff season without Favre is like a night without stars or a hotel room without an attractive masseuse.
