  • Baseball: One charge dropped...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — One of the five charges in Barry Bonds’ perjury trial has been dropped and the defense has rested without calling a single witness.
    Bonds’ attorney Allen Ruby announced the move Wednesday morning, which means the slugger will not take the stand in his own defense against charges that he lied to a federal grand jury by saying he never knowingly used performance-enhancing drugs.
    The jury of eight-women and four men was sent home and ordered to return Thursday to begin deliberations after hearing closing arguments and instructions from the judge.

  • Softball: Toppers, Sundevils...

    Starting today, the Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team will get a shot at defending its District 2-4A crown.
    Los Alamos hosts what has been its toughest district opponent at 4 p.m. Española Valley’s Sundevils will be looking to put the Hilltoppers into an early district hole at Overlook Park in White Rock.
    The Hilltoppers were dominant in the 2010 2-4A race, going a spotless 12-0 against the other four district squads. While the Hilltoppers have been playing better ball in recent weeks, pulling off the same feat in 2011 could be a tall order.
    Manager Roger Anaya said the district race could be a tight one this season and getting off to a good start will be key.

  • Women's basketball: Texas A...

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — This NCAA tournament had plenty of twists, turns and upsets even before the championship game. Gary Blair and Texas A&M delivered a thrilling ending.

    This was the supposed to be the year Maya Moore's Connecticut juggernaut won its third straight title or Stanford broke through or Tennessee got back to the top.

    Instead, the Aggies rewrote the script in their first Final Four appearance. They made the 65-year-old Blair the oldest coach to win a national championship just one night after UConn's 68-year-old Jim Calhoun did the same thing on the men's side.

  • Girls tennis: Toppers place...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls tennis team placed third at its home-away-from-home invitational Saturday.
    Los Alamos hosted a singles and doubles tournament Saturday. However, because Los Alamos lacks a centralized location to hold a big tournament, it was played at Capital High School in Santa Fe.
    The Hilltoppers finished with nine team points in the tournament, which included three singles draws and two doubles draws.
    Not surprisingly, the Farmington Scorpions, the two-time defending Class 4A champions and the odds-on favorites to win again in 2011, easily claimed the team title. Farmington grabbed 30 points at the tournament, more than the next three teams combined. Rio Rancho’s Sue Cleveland finished in second place with 12 points.

  • New Mexico women's...

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — University of New Mexico officials confirmed Monday that women's basketball head coach Don Flanagan is retiring.

    Flanagan is the most successful coach in the history of the New Mexico women's program. He posted a 340-168 record in 16 seasons, took the Lobos to the NCAA Tournament eight times and won a handful of conference championships.

    Flanagan had one year left on a four-year contract extension. The Albuquerque Journal reported that Flanagan made the decision after five freshman players informed him of their intentions to quit the team.

  • Softball: LA falls in final...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team couldn’t come back from an early deficit and fell to the Raton Tigers 8-1 Saturday on the road.
    Los Alamos fell behind 3-0 after three innings, committing two costly errors in the first inning that led to two Raton runs. Raton then scored three times in the fifth and tacked on two more in the sixth to go up 8-0. Los Alamos scored in the final inning but couldn’t muster anything further.
    The Tigers, the No. 2 team in Class 3A according to the latest coaches’ poll, held the Hilltoppers to just six hits and played a clean defensive game, making the going tough.
