  • ´Toppers take two of three...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team earned a pair of shutout victories at the very tough Piedra Vista Invitational this weekend.
    Los Alamos pitchers Steven Williams and Danny Finn pitched complete game shutouts on consecutive days to lead the team to the two wins. Williams gave up just five hits in an 8-0 victory over Class 5A Clovis Friday, while Finn, a freshman, allowed just two hits in a 4-0 win over Fruita, Colo., Saturday.
    The tournament was held at historic Ricketts Park in Farmington, home of the Connie Mack World Series.
    To open the tournament, the Hilltoppers fell in 13-7 against the Farmington Scorpions Thursday. Following that contest, the Hilltoppers picked up the win over Clovis Friday to advance to the fifth-place game.

  • ´Toppers earn match sweep

    SANTA FE — This year, it could well be the talent and experience of the Farmington Scorpions against the depth of the Los Alamos Hilltoppers that determines the Class 4A girls tennis championship.
    The Hilltoppers, who are about to go into the meat of their season, picked up a big early season win over the Cleveland Storm Saturday at Capital High School. The Hilltoppers dropped just one set over nine matches to pull off a sweep over the Class 5A Storm.
    Los Alamos, which was without two of its top players Saturday, had a dominant performance Saturday.
    Junior Madeline Margevicius, in the No. 1 singles slot, No. 2 Susanna Lucido and sophomore Jing Xie, at No. 5 singles, picked up wins while dropping just two games in their matches.

  • Lobos win, Aggies fall in March...

    It was a mixed day for the state of New Mexico during the second round of the NCAA Tournament in Portland, Ore., Thursday.
    Fifth-seeded New Mexico held off Long Beach State 75-68 and the Lobos will face Louisville in a third-round matchup Saturday in the West Regional. Thirteen-seeded New Mexico State, meanwhile, was unable to handle Indiana inside and fell 79-66 to Indiana in the South Regional.
    In the New Mexico game, Kendall Williams scored 14 of his 16 points in the second half and bottled up Long Beach State star Casper Ware defensively.
    When New Mexico needed a big shot, Williams delivered. His 3-pointer with 4:38 left pushed the Lobos ahead for good after Long Beach State (25-9) took a 61-59 lead on a steal and windmill dunk from James Ennis.

  • New Mexico holds off Long Beach...

    PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The expectation back in New Mexico is that this will finally be the year the Lobos get past the first weekend of the NCAA tournament.

    They barely got out of the second round Thursday.

    Kendall Williams scored 14 of his 16 points in the second half and bottled up Long Beach State star Casper Ware defensively as fifth-seeded New Mexico held off the 49ers for a 75-68 win in the West Regional.

    Drew Gordon added 18 points and 13 rebounds, but New Mexico's punishing forward was mostly a complement to Williams in the second half. The sophomore went 6 of 11 from the field, hitting a pair of important 3-pointers. The Lobos (28-6) then made their free throws in the final minute to close it out.
