  • Football can clinch 2-4A title...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper football team will have a shot at clinching the District 2-4A title tonight.
    Los Alamos will take on the Capital Jaguars at 7 p.m. A win for the Hilltoppers tonight at Jaguar Field will seal the 2-4A title for the 2011 season.
    Heading into tonight’s game, the Hilltoppers (5-4) are among the hottest teams in Class 4A. They have won four straight and five of their last six to put themselves in a position to clinch the district title. The Hilltoppers’ controlling their own destiny heading into their season finale seemed like a long shot a month ago.

  • Neal, Zumbro named district...

    For the second straight year, Amy Neal was named the top offensive performer in District 2-4A girls soccer.
    Neal, the leading scorer in Class 4A in 2011, led the Hilltoppers to a district title this season and was awarded as being named the Offensive Player of the Year in 2-4A.
    Los Alamos’ girls dominated the All-District first team selections, which were released Thursday night. In all, six Hilltoppers were named to the district’s first team along with Neal.
    Meanwhile, Hilltopper captain Zeke Zumbro was named the Defensive Player of the Year by the district. Zumbro, a junior, became the second straight Hilltopper fullback to earn the district’s top defensive player — the honor was won by Graham Delano in 2010.

  • Cardinals stun Texas, force...

    ST. LOUIS (AP) — Hours after David Freese's home run plunked down on the grass patch beyond the center field wall, long after the ballpark emptied, a message still burned bright on the scoreboard: "See you TOMORROW NIGHT for Game 7 of the World Series!"

    Whatever happens, whether the St. Louis Cardinals or Texas Rangers win, they'll have a hard time topping Thursday night.

    "You had to be here to believe it," St. Louis manager Tony La Russa said.

    In one of the greatest thrillers in baseball history, the Cardinals twice rallied when they were down to their last strike of the season. First, Freese saved them with a two-run triple in the ninth, then Lance Berkman delivered a tying single in the 10th.

  • Yum Run is set for Saturday

    The annual Yum Run will return for its seventh year Saturday.
    The Yum Run, a 5K and 10K race, along with a 1K fun run/walk is the primary fundraising event for the local charity LA Cares. It starts and ends near Ruby K’s bagel shop downtown.
    As of Tuesday night, the event had 65 participants and organizers are expecting more than 100 runners and walkers to take part.
    Despite having plenty of participants, the race’s atmosphere is decidedly low-key.
    “It’s very laid back,” said June Gladney of LA Cares. “It’s very fun.”
    Former notable local senior athlete, as well as LA Cares volunteer Aaron Goldman, helped organize the first Yum Run in 2005.

  • West Virginia will join Big 12

    The Big 12 has a replacement lined up for Missouri before it even leaves the conference.
    Acting quickly to make sure it maintains a 10-member lineup, the Big 12 approved bringing in West Virginia to replace Missouri when the Tigers complete their move to the Southeastern Conference, a person with knowledge of the decision said Tuesday.
    The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the Big 12 had not announced that the conference board of directors on Monday unanimously approved inviting West Virginia when Missouri’s spot comes open.

     

  • Officer scores 1st round KO

    Los Alamos Police Department’s Lt. Jason Wardlow-Herrera knocked out Grant Lundquist of Santa Fe County’s fire department with a big right in the first round Saturday.
    Wardlow-Herrera took part in the Rumble in the Rio boxing matches Saturday. The event was held at the Santa Ana Star Casino near Bernalillo.
    The fights are an annual charity event that feature first-responders from around the state. Police officers won eight of the 12 fights on the card this year.
    With Wardlow-Herrera’s knockout — the only KO of the night —the event’s roving trophy will be delivered to LAPD Friday. LAPD will have the trophy for the next year.

  • LA finishes its fall slate at...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys golf team finished third in its final tournament of the fall 2011 season Monday.
    Los Alamos played at the Marty Sanchez Links de Santa Fe Monday. Monday’s tournament, however, was actually hosted by the Hobbs Eagles — Hobbs is located in the extreme southeastern part of the state.
    The Hilltoppers shot a 399 overall. Only one Hilltopper was able to break 100, however. Freshman Johnny Osden finished with a 92.
    Los Alamos head coach Mike Lippiatt said his team actually played most of the round better than its 399 would indicate, but there were a few blow-ups on the day that knocked scores up considerably.
