  • Running: Boston Marathon...

    BOSTON (AP) — Alex McKinney has dodged cars, hurdled snow banks, slipped on ice and splashed through slushy puddles while training for the Boston Marathon.

    Preparing for 26.2 miles is never easy, but this winter has been particularly trying for runners, who have had to deal with record snowfall in the Northeast.

    Before they can even think about challenging Heartbreak Hill, they've had to endure slippery sidewalks, icy inclines and frozen footpaths.

  • Sports update: Pajarito set to...

    Pajarito Mountain plans to reopen for skiing Friday, said Ski Pajraito general manager Tom Long.

    The mountain had temporarily suspended operations for the past couple of weeks because of a lack of snow.
    According to its website, the mountain has a base of 21 inches with seven inches of new snow in the past week.

  • Girls basketball: LA hangs on to...

    SANTA FE — Despite earning a comfortable 15-point victory in its first meeting against the Santa Fe Demons, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team wasn’t taking anything for granted Wednesday night.
    That turned out to be a good thing.
    With under 10 seconds remaining in regulation, Santa Fe’s Alix Jeantette, who hadn’t taken a shot all game long, buried a long-range 3-pointer to force overtime at Toby Roybal Gymnasium.

  • Football: Super Bowl is most-...

    NEW YORK (AP) — For the second year in a row, the Super Bowl has set a record for American television viewing.
    The Nielsen Co. said Monday that an estimated 111 million people watched the Green Bay Packers outlast the Pittsburgh Steelers in professional football’s ultimate game. That tops the 106.5 million who watched the 2010 game between New Orleans and Indianapolis.
    “M-A-S-H” had held the title of the most-watched TV show in the United States for 27 years.

    LA-Academy girls hoops game canceled

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team has one less game to worry about this season.
    Tuesday, Los Alamos High School announced the girls basketball game between Los Alamos and Albuquerque Academy had been dropped from the schedule.
    The game was slated for Feb. 17, but Academy backed out, citing it had District 5AAAA games to finish before the end of the season.

  • Boys basketball: LA comes up...

    Thomas Russell’s steal late in the second overtime period might have been the play of the game.
    Thomas Russell’s right leg, however, decided to give up on him at the most inopportune moment.
    With the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team leading by one point with under a minute to play in the second overtime period, Russell stepped in front of a Santa Fe Demon pass about 12 feet from the timeline. Russell had a lane to the basket for, at worst, a trip to the foul line, but got a cramp in his right leg just as he started his shooting cycle.

  • Women's basketball: Cowboys...

    LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Aubrey Vandiver finished with 28 points and 10 rebounds and Wyoming defeated New Mexico 78-65 Tuesday night.
