  • Football: LA knocked off by...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper football team took another one on the chin Saturday in its final nondistrict contest of the season.
    Facing its fourth ranked opponent in five weeks, the Hilltoppers were thumped on the road at Albuquerque Academy. The Hilltoppers tried to hang with the Academy Chargers, a Class AAA team, early on, scoring a touchdown to cut a 14-0 Charger lead in half, but the Chargers would go on to score five unanswered touchdowns to win 49-7 at Richard Harper Memorial Stadium.

  • Volleyball: ´Toppers knock off...

    SANTA FE — Coming off a less-than-stellar performance Wednesday against Bernalillo, the Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team got its ship righted in a hurry Saturday.
    The Hilltoppers earned a convincing shutout victory over a much-improved Santa Fe Demon program Saturday at Toby Roybal Gymnasium. Even after getting off to a rocky start in the second set, the Hilltoppers recovered quickly and turned a 6-1 deficit into an 8-7 lead in the space of just two side-outs.

  • Girls soccer: LA posts mercy-...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team again took a District 2AAAA opponent to the woodshed.
    Los Alamos, which is well on its way to earning another district title, crushed the Capital Jaguars 10-0 at home Saturday. It closed out the contest just eight minutes to the second half via the mercy rule.
    With the victory, Los Alamos remains a perfect 3-0 in district (6-8 overall) and is halfway to clinching a berth to the Class AAAA state tournament.

  • Boys soccer: LA holds on in 2nd...

    The Los Alamos High School box office sells fans the whole seat to its boys soccer games, but more often this season than not, fans have only needed the edge.
    Saturday in one of its most important contests of the season, Los Alamos again appeared to be on its way to a convincing win only to see the tides turn quickly. Up 2-0 and just missing out on four other shots, Los Alamos saw its lead cut in half in a matter of seconds as Capital put a through ball into the goal at the 50-minute mark.

  • Girls cross country: LA cruises...

    SANTA FE — Heading into the stretch run of the 2010 season, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls cross country team was looking to get some momentum going.
    The Hilltoppers may have just gotten that with a big outing Saturday.

  • Boys cross country: Roybal leads...

    SANTA FE — The second half of the season, traditionally, is when the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys cross country team kicks it up to a whole new level.
    At Saturday’s Santa Fe Indian School Invitational, Los Alamos showed that 2010 may be no exception to that rule.
    The Hilltoppers picked up a solid victory in Saturday’s race, which takes place on the SFIS campus. The team earned a score of 57, 14 points better than the host Braves, who this year have a solid team and could well be a sleeper at the Class AAA state meet.
