  • LA falls in first round of boys...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team played one of its most complete games of the 2011 season Saturday, but that wouldn't be enough to pull off an upset.

    The Hilltoppers fell in the first round of the Class 4A playoffs Saturday to the Piedra Vista Panthers. After going up 1-0 in the first half, the Hilltoppers couldn't convert on several more chances throughout the game.

    The game would ultimately go into penalty kicks, with the Panthers winning the shootout 3-1 to take the first round victory.

    "We played really well," Los Alamos head coach Evan Gartz said. "The energy was there. We had a lot of momentum during the game. We actually had a lot more scoring chances than they did. They left it all on the field today."

  • ´Toppers roll over Jaguars,...

    SANTA FE – It didn’t seem to be a likely scenario in mid-September.
    Now, in late October, it has come to pass. Or, more accurately, it has come to rush.
    Putting together an impressive run in District 2-4A, the Los Alamos Hilltopper football team capped off a perfect district season with a 50-0 clubbing of the Capital Jaguars.
    Los Alamos rolled up 303 rushing yards in just one half Friday night at Jaguar Field. Arnoldo Ortiz and Xavier Dennison duplicated their feat of rushing for 100 yards-plus in about a quarter’s worth of work that they pulled off a week earlier, with Dennison going for 112 yards on just four carries in the second quarter and Ortiz earning 109 yards on 11 carries in just a little over 14 minutes of play.

  • LA’s boys, girls cruise to 12th...

    The District 2-4A cross country championship race over the previous 11 years had been more formality than competition.
    That didn’t change any on Friday.
    Los Alamos’ cross country teams were once again dominant at the district championship. Los Alamos, hosting the meet at Los Alamos Golf Course, swept both titles handily, with the Hilltopper boys grabbing a perfect score of 15 to earn their 12th straight district title.
    In the girls race, the Hilltoppers cruised to finish with 20 points, easily outdistancing runner-up Bernalillo by 41 points.
    Individually, Hilltoppers Jordan Parker and Alexander Romero scored impressive wins with each of them grabbing their first career district titles.

  • Cards win World Series, beat...

    ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals won a remarkable World Series they weren't even supposed to reach, beating the Texas Rangers 6-2 in Game 7 on Friday night with another key hit by hometown star David Freese and six gutty innings from Chris Carpenter.

    A day after an epic Game 6 that saw them twice within one strike of elimination, the Cardinals captured their 11th World Series crown. After a whole fall on the edge, Tony La Russa's team didn't dare mess with Texas, or any more drama.

    Freese's two-run double tied it in the first inning against loser Matt Harrison and Allen Craig hit a go-ahead homer in the third.

  • Tar Heels are tops in AP poll

    North Carolina broke a tie with its fiercest rival and moved into one with one of college basketball’s most storied programs.
    The Tar Heels, who return all five starters from the team that reached the regional finals last season, were the runaway No. 1 in The Associated Press’ men’s preseason Top 25 on Friday.
    It is the eighth time they have received that honor since the preseason poll started in 1961-62.
    That breaks a tie with Duke, North Carolina’s Tobacco Road rival, and moves them into a tie with UCLA.

  • Football can clinch 2-4A title...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper football team will have a shot at clinching the District 2-4A title tonight.
    Los Alamos will take on the Capital Jaguars at 7 p.m. A win for the Hilltoppers tonight at Jaguar Field will seal the 2-4A title for the 2011 season.
    Heading into tonight’s game, the Hilltoppers (5-4) are among the hottest teams in Class 4A. They have won four straight and five of their last six to put themselves in a position to clinch the district title. The Hilltoppers’ controlling their own destiny heading into their season finale seemed like a long shot a month ago.

  • Neal, Zumbro named district...

    For the second straight year, Amy Neal was named the top offensive performer in District 2-4A girls soccer.
    Neal, the leading scorer in Class 4A in 2011, led the Hilltoppers to a district title this season and was awarded as being named the Offensive Player of the Year in 2-4A.
    Los Alamos’ girls dominated the All-District first team selections, which were released Thursday night. In all, six Hilltoppers were named to the district’s first team along with Neal.
    Meanwhile, Hilltopper captain Zeke Zumbro was named the Defensive Player of the Year by the district. Zumbro, a junior, became the second straight Hilltopper fullback to earn the district’s top defensive player — the honor was won by Graham Delano in 2010.
