  • 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.

  • Boys track and field: LA takes...

    Kyle Stephens had flirted with a state qualifying mark in the high jump earlier this season, but this weekend he not only made that mark but earned a huge win with it.
    Stephens not only cleared 6 feet for the first time this season but won the high jump competition at this weekend’s Richard A. Harper Memorial Invitational.
    Los Alamos’ boys track and field team finished seventh at the Harper Invitational, one of the toughest regular season meets in the state. It finished with 27 points, second among Class 4A teams at the meet behind host Albuquerque Academy’s 37 points.

  • Girls track and field: ´Toppers...

    If there was any lingering doubt about which team was the favorite heading into the Class 4A girls state meet in 2011, that doubt was removed this weekend.
    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls came out on top of a stacked field at this weekend’s Richard A. Harper Invitational. The Harper Invitational, one of the most competitive regular season meets in the state, was hosted by Albuquerque Academy.
    The Hilltoppers, again led by Laura Wendelberger and Chase Ealey, picked up 65.5 points, topping a pair of the top Class 5A schools in the state, Eldorado and La Cueva, along the way.
    The win immediately cements Los Alamos as the team to beat again at the 4A state meet, which is scheduled for May 13-14. Los Alamos is the two-time defending state champ.

  • Softball: LA earns two wins at...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper softball got its long road trip started off on the right foot Saturday.
    Los Alamos picked up wins in both ends of a big District 2-4A doubleheader Saturday, closing both games against the Española Valley Sundevils out in five innings.
    In the valley, the Hilltoppers dropped the Sundevils 14-4 in the opener, then followed that up with a 16-3 win in the nightcap. The wins improved the Hilltoppers to 7-1 in 2-4A play (12-10 overall) and put them a full game ahead of the Santa Fe Demons atop the district standings.
    Los Alamos still has four district games remaining, including three against the two teams that are still alive in the 2-4A race, but getting past Española Valley Saturday could provide a big boost.

  • Baseball: ´Toppers earn district...

    ESPAÑOLA – Even with a considerable amount on the line Saturday, the Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team wasn’t feeling the pinch.
    Even after falling in a tight opening game, Los Alamos was still playing it light and breezy.
    And everything worked out just fine.
    The Hilltoppers bounced back after a game one loss in a critical District 2-4A doubleheader against the Española Valley Sundevils to earn a victory in the nightcap. The Hilltoppers scored three runs in both their first and last at-bats to take the second game 8-3.
    The win in the second game of Saturday’s twinbill at Española Valley clinched the third straight district title for Los Alamos.

  • Running: Rees wins Pace Race...

    Ben Rees had a spotless prediction at this week’s Pace Race.
    The Pace Race is a weekly event hosted by the Atomic City Roadrunners. It is held Tuesdays at various sites around Los Alamos County.
    Tuesday’s race was held on the Cañada del Buey Trail in White Rock. In all, 24 walkers and runners took part.
    Rees, running on the 3-mile course, had a perfect prediction of his finish time. He needed it, as the next two closest finishers, Ted Romero and Bob Reedy, were a total of three seconds off their finish times.
    Dan Kelly had the best prediction, a 42-second error, on the 1-mile course.

  • Basketball: Rose, Bulls go up 3-...

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Derrick Rose was beaten up and shaken up by Indiana’s trapping defense, which was intent on shutting him down at all costs.
    The Chicago Bulls guard struggled all game long and even lost his cool at times, but he still found a way to be the difference-maker.
    He scored 23 points, including the go-ahead layup with 17.8 seconds left, to help the Bulls beat the Pacers 88-84 on Thursday night and take a 3-0 lead in their first-round Eastern Conference playoff series.
    Rose’s late basket was his only field goal in the second half. He made just 4 of 18 shots in the game as he was blanketed, and at times pummeled, by Indiana’s Paul George and Dahntay Jones.
