  • Hilltoppers close out Chargers...

    The offense for the Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team came on so quickly in the late innings Thursday manager Roger Anaya didn’t even realize his team was closing in on victory.

    Los Alamos scored seven runs in its final two at-bats to close out the Albuquerque Academy Chargers early. Los Alamos pushed four runs across the plate in the last inning to pick up a 10-0 win at Overlook Park.

  • Big 5th inning lifts LA to...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team broke open a tight ballgame with a big rally in the fifth inning and capped off Wednesday’s contest with a big sixth inning.
    After falling behind 5-4 Wednesday at Santa Fe, Los Alamos pushed 13 runs across the plate in the next two innings to win 17-5 in a key District 2-4A contest.
    After struggling to get its offense going against a talented eighth grade pitcher, Alex Russell, Los Alamos strung together several base hits in the fifth inning. Those hits, combined with Santa Fe’s defensive miscues — following a nearly flawless first four innings — put the Hilltoppers up 11-5.

  • Toppers pummel Santa Fe's...

    SANTA FE — The Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team wasted no time jumping all over the Santa Fe Demon pitching staff Wednesday.
    Los Alamos pounded out seven hits in the top of the first Wednesday, pushing eight runs across the plate in the inning, setting the tone for a District 2-4A rout.
    The Hilltoppers finished with 14 hits in three innings as they closed out the Demons in the minimum five innings, winning 17-0. The victory improved the Hilltoppers 2-4A mark to 3-0.
    Currently, Los Alamos is sitting atop the district standings and can put some separation between itself and the other four 2-4A teams with a good showing at home this weekend.

  • Johnson's group to purchase...

    NEW YORK (AP) — One Los Angeles institution is buying another.
    A group that includes former Lakers star Magic Johnson and longtime baseball executive Stan Kasten agreed Tuesday night to buy the Dodgers from Frank McCourt for a record $2 billion.
    The price would shatter the mark for a sports franchise. Stephen Ross paid $1.1 billion for the NFL’s Miami Dolphins in 2009, and in England, Malcolm Glazer and his family took over the Manchester United soccer club in 2005 in a deal then valued at $1.47 billion.
    Mark Walter, chief executive officer of the financial services firm Guggenheim Partners, would become the controlling owner.
