  • Baseball tourneys start up this...

    The Little League All-Star tournaments are scheduled to begin this weekend, with the Majors division tournament being played on North Mesa.
    The White Rock and Los Alamos Little Leagues combined to form Los Alamos County’s entry into the District 1 Majors tournament, which will include teams from Santa Fe, Española and Pojoaque. This is the first time White Rock and Los Alamos will put in a combined team into the Majors tournament.
    The winners of the district tournaments will advance to the state tournaments later this month.
    Also this weekend, the White Rock 9/10 All-Stars will begin their district tournament at Alto Park in Santa Fe. The 9/10’s opening round game is set for Saturday.

  • WR-LA head to regionals

    The White Rock-Los Alamos Little League Junior All-Star softball team broke open a tight ballgame in the sixth inning to win the District 1 championship Tuesday night.
    WR-LA scored seven times in the bottom of the sixth to earn a 15-4 victory over Santa Fe Metro’s All-Stars in the district championship game at Alto Park.
    With the win, WR-LA earned an automatic bid into the Little League regional championship, which will be played in Santa Fe Aug. 3-7 — the host district gets an automatic bid into regionals, which is just one step from the Little League World Series.

  • Phelps bows out of 200 butterfly

    OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Eight was enough for Michael Phelps in Beijing.
    The world’s greatest swimmer dropped one of his eight Olympic events on Monday, leaving him with seven at the London Games. That means the 14-time gold medalist won’t equal the record eight golds he won four years ago.
    And Phelps is just fine with that.
    “Four years ago, we were trying to literally do everything,” he told The Associated Press in an interview Monday. “That was what we wanted to do but at this point, it’s let’s go out, let’s have some fun, let’s relax a little bit.”
    Phelps’ coach, Bob Bowman, announced Monday on the final day of the U.S. trials that Phelps was scratching the 200-meter freestyle.

  • WR-LA All-Stars rally to top...

    SANTA FE — The White Rock-Los Alamos Little League All-Star junior softball team rallied from two runs down to force extra innings in the opener of its District 1 tournament Monday.
    Elizabeth Anaya’s two-out infield single drove in Megan Pimentel to tie the score in the bottom of the seventh and send the game into extra innings. In the bottom of the eighth, WR-LA drew three walks off two Santa Fe Metro All-Star pitchers, including a bases loaded walk by Morgan Hohner to force home the winning run.
