    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.

  • Tennis: Nadal stops 18-year-old...

    MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Rafael Nadal overcame the much-hyped potential star of Australian tennis in his quest for a fourth consecutive major title.

    Despite a mostly parochial crowd of 15,000 at Rod Laver Arena, the top-ranked Nadal secured a 6-2, 7-5, 6-3 win over 18-year-old wildcard Bernard Tomic at the Australian Open on Saturday. Nadal advanced to a fourth-round match against Marin Cilic.

  • Girls basketball: LA routs Santa...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team held the Santa Fe Demons to just eight points in the second and third quarters to win Friday night’s District 2AAAA contest going away.

    Freshman McKenzie Logan had 11 points to lead all scorers as the Hilltoppers came away with a 47-32 victory at Griffith Gymnasium.

    The win improves Los Alamos to 2-0 in the early portion of its district schedule and sets up a big contest Wednesday against two-time district champion Española Valley.

  • Football: The picks just keep on...

    Seriously, I don’t even know why I’m bothering.
    Picking these games ain’t done me a lick of good so far. Here’s a recap of last week’s picks: the Patriots went AWOL and the Falcons got defeathered.
    I went 2-for-4 picking the divisional round playoff games last week. Frankly, picking Pittsburgh over Baltimore was a coin-flip and picking Chicago over Seattle was like picking Larry Holmes over Gerry Cooney, only the most blind-faithed among us would’ve thought the Seattle Cooneys stood a chance.
