  • Baker, Teter named to 4A/5A All-...

    A pair of Los Alamos Hilltopper basketball players were named to the 4A/5A North All-Star team for the 2011-12 season.
    Hilltopper Monika Teter was selected to join the girls big-school All-Star Game, while Nick Baker was picked for the North All-Star boys team.
    The team announcements were made Monday by the New Mexico High School Coaches Association, which organizes the All-Star events.
    The boys 4A/5A All-Star game is scheduled for Aug. 2 at La Cueva High School in Albuquerque, an unusually late scheduling — most years, All-Star series events are wrapped up in July — while the girls 4A/5A game is set for June 8 at Rio Rancho.
    None of the four coaches involved in the 4A/5A games have been announced.

  • Baseball team scores 3 late to...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team picked up a third-place finish at the Andres Arguello Memorial Tournament this weekend.
    Los Alamos scored three runs in the bottom of the sixth inning against Socorro (Texas) Saturday to win the tournament’s third-place game, 7-5. Los Alamos won two of three contests at the tournament, but fell 10-0 in the semifinal to host St. Pius X.
    The third-place finish was an accomplishment for the Hilltoppers, particularly the seniors, who had never placed better than fourth at the Arguello tournament.
    In Saturday’s game against Socorro, Hilltopper ace JD Weiss threw four hitless innings in a critical stretch to keep his team with Socorro.

  • 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.
