  • LA girls, boys hosting 2-4A...

    Both the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls basketball teams will host the quarterfinal round of the District 2-4A tournament Tuesday night.

    Los Alamos' girls will take on Bernalillo at 5 p.m. Tuesday. The boys will play Espanola Valley starting at 7:30 p.m.

    The winner of Tuesday's girls game will advance to the tournament semifinals against Santa Fe, while the boys' winner will play at Bernalillo in that semifinal. Both those semifinal games will be Tuesday.

    Espanola Valley's girls and Capital's boys are the top seed in the 2-4A tournaments. The winners of the tournaments will get automatic bids into the Class 4A playoffs, which start later this month.

  • LA’s Cory Geyer takes third...

    RIO RANCHO – Cory Geyer was the top finisher for the Los Alamos Hiltoppers at this weekend’s state Class 4A championship meet.

    Geyer bounced back from a loss in the semifinals at 152 pounds to knock off an old foe in Keonny Gonzales and pick up his second win of the tournament over Isaiah Valdez of Aztec.

    The top-three finish by Geyer was one of the few bright spots for the Hilltoppers at the state meet, held Friday and Saturday at the Santa Ana Star Center.

    Geyer progressed through to the semifinals Saturday, only one of two Hilltoppers to survive two rounds Friday. He earned a first round pin over Irving Lopez of Farmington in round two after receiving an opening-round bye.

  • Hilltopper girls take eighth...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper swimming and diving teams finished well off the pace at the 2011-12 state championship meet this weekend.

    The state title meet was hosted again this year by Albuquerque Academy, which itself saw its impressive streak of boys team title victories snapped.

    Los Alamos’ push to make a good showing at state never materialized. It finished eighth in the girls final standings with 114 points, while it managed just a 22nd-place finish on the boys side.

    Academy’s girls scored a decisive team victory, picking up 339 points, 72 points better than runner-up Las Cruces.

  • Lobos top Aztecs on the road

    SAN DIEGO (AP) — The No. 13 San Diego State Aztecs aren't used to losing like this.

    Kendall Williams scored 21 points and Drew Gordon had 17 points and 17 rebounds as New Mexico stunned the Aztecs 77-67 on Wednesday night in their loud, crazy arena to move into first place in the Mountain West Conference.

    The Lobos (21-4, 7-2) won their sixth straight game and held Chase Tapley, the conference's leading scorer, to seven points. He came in averaging 16.2 points and had been in double figures in 18 straight games. Tapley was held scoreless until making a layup with 4:38 to play.

    Jamal Fenton had 15 points for the Lobos.

  • Capital rallies to drop LA in...

    SANTA FE — A good start to the first half by the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team wasn’t sustained into the second half Wednesday night.
    Los Alamos jumped out to an 8-0 lead against the Capital Jaguars Thursday, but the district-leading Jaguars came back to outscore Los Alamos 22-12 for the rest of the first half. To start the second half, the Jaguars held the Hilltoppers to just five points.
    Capital cruised the rest of the way to a 53-39 victory Wednesday at Edward Ortiz Gymnasium. The game was the finale of the regular season for Los Alamos.

  • Cory Geyer could make a push for...

    Nobody is going to concede anything to Cory Geyer at the Class 4A wrestling tournament.

    That’s just the way Geyer wants it.

    Geyer, the top wrestler for the Los Alamos Hilltoppers’ program for the past two seasons, will be one of the guys to beat in the 152-pound bracket at this weekend’s state championship. Geyer is projected to be a top-four seed heading in, but will be tested in what has been one of the toughest weight classes in the state in recent years.

    This year appears to be no exception with 10 of the 24 wrestlers entered have lost 10 bouts or less.
