  • Snow-ball

    Baseball season has started in Los Alamos, which means it’s time for snow. Hilltopper manager Mike Gill (center) and first base coach Jeff Walterscheid check out the accumulation from Monday afternoon’s storm, which nixed the scheduled game at Bomber Field against Pojoaque. No make-up date has been announced.

  • Men's basketball: Gary...

    ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Playing on a heavily taped ankle, Dairese Gary had 17 points and seven assists in his final home game to lead New Mexico to a 66-61 victory over Air Force on Saturday.
    Gary, who made 11 of 13 free-throw attempts for the Lobos (20-11, 8-8 Mountain West), turned his right ankle midway through the first half. The three minutes it took to be taped up accounted for all of his time off the court.
    It was the third win in a row for New Mexico, which beat No. 3 BYU on Wednesday.

  • Baseball/Softball: LA teams earn...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball and softball teams both garnered votes in the first Class 4A coaches’ polls of the season.
    The coaches’ polls are conducted by the New Mexico High School Coaches Association. Members from all across the state cast ballots for the top 10 teams in the state.
    Los Alamos’ baseball team finished with two votes in the first poll, which was released late last week. That vote put Los Alamos unofficially 14th in the state.

    ALBUQUERQUE — In its quest for a third straight Class 4A championship, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls track and field team got its season started on the right foot.
    The Hilltopper girls picked up a victory in their season-opening meet, the Albuquerque Academy Chile Quad, scoring 98 points to hold off a stiff charge from the St. Pius X Sartans Saturday at Richard Harper Memorial Field.
    Also Saturday, Los Alamos’ boys team finished a strong second at the meet, earning 96 points. The Academy Chargers grabbed 118 team points to earn that team victory.

  • Girls basketball: LA bounced by...

    GRANTS — A quick-strike rally by the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team at the end of the first half Friday put it within striking distance of the Grants Pirates heading into the break.

    Los Alamos trailed by as many as eight points in the first half of the opening round Class 4A state tournament game against Grants, but cut the Pirates’ lead down to just one possession.

    That would, however, be the last offensive push the Hilltoppers would make for the balance of the ballgame.
