    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Tiger Woods has a minor injury to his left knee and Achilles’ tendon that will keep him out of the Wells Fargo Championship next week, raising more questions that his health might be the biggest obstacle in his chase of Jack Nicklaus’ record.
    Woods said on his website Tuesday that he hurt himself hitting a shot during the third round of the Masters.
    It’s the fourth time he has missed a tournament because of his left knee. Woods did not say when he might return.

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls golf team showed signs of getting back in the swing of things this spring season at this week’s Kirtland Central Invitational.
    Los Alamos, which struggled in its first two tournaments of the spring 2011 season, had its best showing so far in Tuesday’s round of the Kirtland Central tournament. The tournament was hosted by the Kirtland Central Broncos, regarded as one of the teams to beat in the upcoming Class 4A championship.
    In less than ideal weather conditions Tuesday, the Hilltoppers posted their best score since the fall season.
    The Hilltoppers carded a 368, a full 50 shots better than their total a week earlier at their home tournament.

  • Basketball: Grizzlies take a 3-1...

     Whatever Memphis coach Lionel Hollins said to his team at halftime worked very, very well.
    The eighth-seeded Grizzlies outscored San Antonio 30-15 in the third quarter, turning a 2-point halftime deficit into a 104-86 rout Monday night of the Spurs for a commanding 3-1 lead in their opening series.
    “It was an incredible performance in the third and fourth quarter,” Hollins said. “We outscored them 30-15 and from the second quarter on, our defense just kept getting better and better.”
    San Antonio led 50-48 at halftime, and Grizzlies guard O.J. Mayo said Hollins lit such a fire in his team with telling them exactly what he wanted them to do that they couldn’t wait to get onto the court.

  • Girls golf: Toppers shoot 380 in...

    After two straight struggles to open the spring 2011 season, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls golf team showed signs it might be getting back on track.
    Los Alamos finished with a team score of 380 shots in the opening round of the Kirtland Central Invitational. Los Alamos was just one of three teams playing both rounds of the tournament — Kirtland Central and Farmington were the others.
    The Hilltoppers were expecting a big showing this spring but things got off to a rocky start. The Hilltoppers struggled at the Ruidoso Invitational two weeks ago and didn’t see much better results at last week’s Los Alamos Spring Invitational.
    Hilltopper head coach Mike Lippiatt said he felt better about Monday’s round in Farmington.

  • Boys golf: LA finishes 3rd,...

    The Santa Fe Invitational, which included nine teams from around the area, was won by the Bernalillo Spartans, one of the teams Los Alamos will have to beat at the district tournament next week in order to qualify for the Class 4A state tournament.

  • Football: Trickle of NFL players...

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The NFL is a long way from playing football.

    One day after a federal judge ended a 45-day lockout, small groups of players showed up at team facilities Tuesday — let inside but told they would not be allowed to work out. Most left in a matter of minutes on a strange day with more questions than answers and the judge said she will take at least another day to consider whether she should put her order on hold.

  • Judge orders end to NFL lockout...

    ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A federal judge on Monday ordered an end to the NFL lockout, giving the players an early victory in their fight with the owners over how to divide the $9 billion business.

    U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson said she was swayed by the players' argument that that the lockout, now in its second month, was causing irreparable harm to their careers.

    The plaintiffs "have made a strong showing that allowing the League to continue their 'lockout' is presently inflicting, and will continue to inflict, irreparable harm upon them, particularly when weighed against the lack of any real injury that would be imposed on the NFL by issuing the preliminary injunction," Nelson wrote.
