  • Boys, girls track teams finish...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls track and field teams grabbed solid second place finishes at Saturday’s Albuquerque Public Schools Kickoff Meet.

    The Hilltopper girls were just nipped by the Class 5A Volcano Vista Hawks, a team that could potentially vie for the big schools championship. The Hilltoppers rolled up 98 points, including some big performances by its two stars, Laura Wendelberger and Chase Ealey.

    On the boys side, Los Alamos finished with a healthy total of 89 points, again second to Volcano Vista. David Stroud and Chris Ryan both won events Saturday, while Los Alamos had a host of individual second place finishes.

  • Toppers advance in tourney

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team jumped on the Highland Hornets early during Thursday’s opening round of the Andres Arguello Memorial Tournament.
    Los Alamos scored four times in the first inning and three more times in the fourth as it cruised to a 10-3 victory.
    Thursday’s win moved the Hilltoppers into the tournament semifinal round where they were scheduled to take on host St. Pius X this morning. Results of that game weren’t available at press time.
    The tournament continues through Saturday in Albuquerque.
    Hilltopper manager Mike Gill said he’s particularly happy that his team is getting the ball in play during the early part of the season, part of the reason the Hilltoppers have had success so far.

  • Colts cut Manning after 14 years

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Colts owner Jim Irsay says the team is releasing quarterback Peyton Manning after a 14-year run that included one Super Bowl title and four MVP awards.
    Irsay and Manning are appearing together Wednesday at a news conference at the Colts’ team complex to announce the move.
    The 35-year-old Manning will become a free agent, and there is expected to be interest from a half-dozen or so NFL clubs, provided he’s healthy. Manning is coming off a series of operations to his neck and missed all of last season.
