  • Football: Chicago car salesman...

    OAK LAWN, Ill. (AP) — A car salesman in suburban Chicago has been fired for refusing to remove a Green Bay Packers tie that he wore to work the day after the Packers beat the Chicago Bears to advance to the Super Bowl.

    John Stone says he wore the Packers tie to work Monday at Webb Chevrolet in Oak Lawn to honor his late grandmother, who was a big Green Bay fan.

  • Tennis: Nadal's Grand Slam...

    MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Rafael Nadal's bid to win four straight Grand Slam tournaments is over.

    The injured Nadal lost his quarterfinal 6-4, 6-2, 6-3 Wednesday to fellow Spaniard David Ferrer at the Australian Open.

    Nadal, who appeared to have tears in his eyes during a changeover while trailing 3-0 in the third set, took a medical timeout for an apparent leg injury after three games and was clearly out of sorts, failing to chase down balls that he would ordinarily return easily.

  • Boys basketball: LA drops big...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team hung with one of the top teams in the state through one half of play, but a rough third quarter sunk the team’s upset efforts.

    Los Alamos played even with the Española Valley Sundevils through one quarter and was down just 23-15 at the break, but managed just six points in the third as Española Valley took control. Española Valley went on to win Tuesday’s ballgame 49-35 in front of a sizeable crowd at Griffith Gymnasium.

  • Boys basketball: LA to take on...

    While the District 2AAAA boys basketball season is just a week old, the Los Alamos Hilltoppers have a big contest on their hands tonight, one that could go a long way to determining its district fate.
    The Hilltoppers will host their arch-rivals, the Española Valley Sundevils, tonight at Griffith Gymnasium. Tickets for the game went on sale at noon at the Griffith Gym box office.
    Tip off for the varsity game is slated for 7 p.m.

  • Hockey: Toppers shut out Sunday

    The Albuquerque OutKast outlasted the Los Alamos Hilltoppers their first New Mexico Interscholastic Ice Hockey League game following the winter break.
    After two scoreless periods, the OutKast picked up the lone goal of their game Sunday morning early in the third period. That proved to be the only score of the contest as the OutKast picked up a 1-0 victory at Outpost Ice Arena.
    With the victory, as well as two others this weekend, Albuquerque jumped past Los Alamos in the NMIIHL standings. Albuquerque is now in a virtual dead-heat with league-leading Taos.

  • Tennis: Federer advances to...

    MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Two points into the final game of his Australian Open quarterfinal against Roger Federer on Tuesday, Stanislas Wawrinka steadied himself to try returning a forehand smash.
    Wawrinka playfully waved his racket over his head in a mock attempt to return it. Forget it, the ball sailed past him and Federer won the point.
    It was that kind of match for Wawrinka.

  • Basketball: No green shirts for...

    Los Alamos High School's boys basketball program announced there will be no 'Topper Store at tonight's game between the Los Alamos Hilltoppers and the Española Valley Sundevils.

    Team boosters announced last week there would be green shirts for sale at tonight's game - the C team game is set for 4 p.m., the junior varsity game for 5:30 p.m. and the varsity game for 7 p.m. - to help promote "Green Out Griffith."

  • Girls basketball: Topper defense...

    Just three days after getting all 10 of its players in the scoring column, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team got nine of 10 on the board.
    Friday against the Santa Fe Demons, Los Alamos turned in another excellent, team-oriented offensive showing. The team defense wasn’t too bad, either.
    Using a balanced scoring attack, the Hilltoppers dominated the Santa Fe Demons, picking up a 47-32 victory to improve to 2-0 in District 2AAAA play.

  • Boys basketball: LA falls to...

    SANTA FE — Straight off the heels of its biggest game of the season, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team had a shot at getting a share of the early District 2AAAA lead.
    Instead, the Hilltoppers again struggled to find their offensive rhythm and dropped its second district contest of the season.

  • Wrestling: Toppers take 4th at...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team finished strong at the Aztec Tiger Duals Saturday.
    Facing some solid competition in their pool, the Hilltoppers pulled off a fourth-place finish at the 10-team meet, hosted by Aztec, one of the premier programs in Class 4A.
