  • Hilltoppers fall short in...

    After a ruinous second quarter, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team nearly made up for it in the second half of Tuesday’s game.
    Los Alamos hosted the fourth-ranked St. Pius X Sartans Tuesday at Griffith Gymnasium. Not only are the two teams longtime rivals, Los Alamos had a chance to make a big statement with just over a week before the start of the District 2-4A season.
    But the Hilltoppers, after playing virtually even with the Sartans in the opening period, managed just four points in the second quarter. The second of the two buckets the Hilltoppers managed in the quarter came with under 30 seconds left before the half.

  • Toppers, Sartans to clash tonight

    The Los Alamos Hilltoppers boys basketball team will take on an old foe tonight at Griffith Gymnasium.

    Los Alamos will face the St. Pius X Sartans. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m.

    The two teams have a long history, including being District 2-4A rivals during the 2000-2006 seasons.

    This week, the Sartans (9-4) are the No. 4-ranked team in Class 4A and have already compiled some impressive wins, including an 85-65 victory over the team that replaced it in 2-4A, the Bernalillo Spartans.

  • Larkin heading to Hall of Fame

    NEW YORK (AP) — Barry Larkin had no idea back in 1982 that he would become a baseball Hall of Famer thanks to Bo Schembechler.
    A two-sport standout in his senior year of high school, Larkin went to the University of Michigan on a scholarship to play defensive back for Schembechler’s Wolverines. When he arrived in Ann Arbor, Larkin learned he was being redshirted.
    “I was a better football player than a baseball player at the time,” Larkin recalled. “And that was influential because I just worked on my baseball talent, just that alone. And that was an eye-opener because I got so much better.”

  • ´Toppers come away with big wins...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls swim teams picked up easy wins at Saturday’s Los Alamos Quadrangular meet.
    The Hilltopper girls were 100 points better than runner-up Taos Saturday, rolling up 504 points. The Hilltopper boys, meanwhile, finished with 524 points, well ahead of the other four teams at the meet combined.
    Along the way, Los Alamos picked up one new state qualification time. Ashlynn Bennett punched her ticket to the state meet in the 50-yard freestyle, earning a top finish with her time of 27.01 seconds.
    Bennett won both her individual events for the Hilltopper girls, while Molly Finn earned a win in the 200 freestyle and a second-place finish in the 500 freestyle.

  • Toppers finish 9th at Moriarty...

    The winter break usually affords sports teams a little breather in the middle of the season.
    In the case of the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team, it might have been too long a layoff.
    The Hilltoppers struggled to a ninth-place finish Saturday at the Moriarty Pinto Invitational. The Hilltoppers lost all four of their duals contests, one of which, a particularly ugly 60-18 defeat, came at the hands of a team the Hilltoppers perhaps should’ve hung closer with, the Valley Vikings.
    It was a low-energy showing for Los Alamos Saturday, something that may have been due at least in part to the long layoff — the Hilltoppers hadn’t wrestled competitively in nearly three weeks.
