  • Girls soccer: LA thumped on road...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team was again routed Friday, but this time by a team it really wanted to beat.
    The Hilltoppers fell on the road Friday to the top-ranked Albuquerque Academy Chargers. The Chargers ran away with the big Class AAAA contest, 5-1.
    This was the first time in three seasons the Chargers scored a victory over the Hilltoppers during the regular season, although, the Chargers bounced back in each of the previous two seasons to top the Hilltoppers in the state championship game.

  • Cross country: LA boys take 3rd...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys cross country team had one of the top finishes of the Division 1 race Friday at the Liberty Bell Invitational in Littleton, Colo.
    The Hilltoppers finished third at the Liberty Bell meet, hosted by Heritage High School in Littleton. Paced by Daniel Roybal’s top-20 finish, the Hilltoppers nipped Smoky Hill, Colo., for third place in the race, 184-185.

  • Boys soccer: LA can’t hold on to...

    The math is pretty simple: 78 minutes does not equal 80 minutes.
    Unfortunately for the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team, it had to learn that lesson in just about the hardest way possible Friday.
    In a big Class AAAA contest at Sullivan Field Friday afternoon, the Hilltoppers held what looked like a commanding 2-0 lead with just a little over two minutes left in regulation – not counting stoppage time – against one of biggest rivals, Albuquerque Academy.

  • Golf: NNMSMGA wraps up its 2010...

    Local golfer Bruce Norman finished just two strokes behind the leader at Wednesday’s Northern New Mexico Senior Men’s Golf Association tournament.
    Wednesday’s tournament, hosted by Los Alamos Golf Course, was the final regular season tournament for the NNMSMGA. Its season championship tournament is scheduled for later this month.
    Norman shot a 78 in the championship flight, two shots behind Santa Fe’s Robert Schneider, who took top honors in the flight.

  • Basketball: Seattle sweeps...

    ATLANTA (AP) — The Seattle Storm made a sweeping claim to be considered one of the top teams in WNBA history.

    Even if the Atlanta Dream were difficult to convince.

    Seattle, which matched the league record for regular-season wins, completed the WNBA's first undefeated postseason in eight years, beating the Dream 87-84 on Thursday night for a three-game sweep of the finals.

    Former LA runner McNiff earns RMAC weekly honor for ASC

    Former Los Alamos standout runner Ryan McNiff was named the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Men’s Runner of the Week.
    McNiff, a senior at Adams State College, was the first runner of 2010 to earn the RMAC honor.
    At last week’s Joe I. Vigil Invitational, McNiff won the men’s 8K race in a time of 24 minutes, 34 seconds, a personal best for him at the Grizzlies’ home course, Cattails Golf Course in Alamosa, Colo.

  • Girls soccer: LA can’t get much...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team always tries to schedule as many tough contests as it can during its nondistrict season trying to learn as much about itself and its potential weaknesses prior to district and the postseason.
    But even if it didn’t have that benefit in 2010, it wouldn’t be that hard to see where it will need to improve.

  • Volleyball: Toppers pick up...

    SANTA FE — Did the Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team finally find an identity?
    It may have, but it took some sifting to secure it.
    Following a disastrous opening set against Deming at Roswell’s Zia Classic this weekend, the team had a bit of bloodletting.
    “We healed a lot of wounds at Roswell,” Los Alamos head coach Garry Maskaly said. “We struggled through some issues, but I think those have been resolved. There was a big turning point at Roswell against Deming.”
