  • Local results from soccer league...

    Here are the results for Los Alamos Football Club teams from Week 8 of Duke City Soccer League play:

    On the girls side, U11 Hotshots earned a 2-1 win over the NM Rush Swoosh. The defense of Kaitlin McGrane, Anna Rose Matuszak, Lauren Stubben and Shelly Doyle was solid.
    The midfield was controlled by Amy Littleton, Anna Lemke, Paulina Burnside, and Marie Lee. Alyssa Parker, Kaya Krantz, and Leah Wolfsburg used creative combination plays to create scoring opportunities.
    Wolfsburg scored the first goal off an assist from Littleton, while Parker scored the second goal on a left-footed shot to the far post.

  • Burnside is off by just 1 second...

    Paulina Burnside just missed out on a perfect prediction at this week’s Atomic City Roadrunners’ Pace Race.
    This week’s race was Tuesday. It was run on the trails near Guaje Pines Cemetery.
    Burnside was the top predictor Tuesday, missing her finish time by just one second. Her prediction was one of several that came within a 10-second differential. Other top predictions on Tuesday were made by Emily Pittman (3 seconds), Nickol Strother (4 seconds), Nathan Burnside (5 seconds) and Lynn Bjorklund (8 seconds).
    The fastest finisher on the 1-mile course was Bob Weeks, who had a finish time of 13:52. Inez Ross finished in 16:03.

  • Bodemeister still the favorite...

    BALTIMORE (AP) — Just like in the Kentucky Derby, Bodemeister is the favorite in the Preakness.
    This time, Bob Baffert intends to justify the odds.
    Despite finishing second in the Derby, Bodemeister was installed as the 8-5 favorite for Saturday’s second leg of the Triple Crown. The colt, trained by Baffert, set the pace at Churchill Downs before being overtaken in the stretch by I’ll Have Another, who won by 1½ lengths.
    I’ll Have Another is the second-favorite in the Preakness at 5-2.
    Baffert, a five-time Preakness winner, was delighted to receive the No. 7 post in the 11-horse field.

  • Hilltoppers cement a place in...

    ALBUQUERQUE — Regardless of whether it continues, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls track and field team’s domination at the state level has been quite remarkable.
    Los Alamos has been a major player in anything running related for much of its history, but it may be some time before anyone, perhaps even the school itself, will be able to repeat its current success.

  • Topes Notes 05-15-12

    The Albuquerque Isotopes were nipped in a close contest Monday at Salt Lake City.
    Salt Lake City Bees starting pitcher Garrett Richards (4-1) held the Isotopes to just two runs through seven innings as the Bees won the third game of the teams’ four-game series 3-2.
    It was the first win of the series for Salt Lake City (19-20) against the red-hot Isotopes (24-15), who have won nine of their last 12 decisions, including five of seven on their current eight-game road trip.
    Richards gave up just four hits through seven innings to pick up the win.
