  • Running: Romero is tops at...

    Ted Romero was the big winner at the 2010 Turkey Trot.
    The Turkey Trot, which was held Sunday on North Mesa, was hosted jointly by the Atomic City Roadrunners, CROP and LA Cares. The event was to benefit those in need of food assistance in the area.
    Sunday’s run included 195 runners taking place on a 2.57-mile course.
    Romero finished the race in 16 minutes, 47 seconds, outpacing runner-up Dan Reese by 45 seconds. Vicky Saga finished third in the race.
    Here are the top 25 finishers from Sunday’s 2010 Turkey Trot:

  • Girls basketball: 'Toppers...

    The 2010-11 version of the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team will no doubt be a rebuilding project.
    The big question going into the season is how big of a project will it be?
    The Hilltoppers and their largely new-look roster will premier at home Friday night. They will take on the always-tough Pojoaque Elks at 7 p.m.
    Los Alamos has just three returning players from last season, all three of them reserves, as well as four underclassmen on its opening day roster.

  • Swimming and diving: LA girls...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls swimming and diving teams both took part in the preseason Barney Relays Saturday, with the girls finishing second and the boys third in team standings.
    The Barney Relays, hosted by Albuquerque Academy, is an annual event with some of the top teams in the state from the previous season invited. Schools form relay teams in each race instead of swimming in individual competition.

  • Boys basketball: LA falls in...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team lost its season opener, falling to the Kirtland Central Broncos Tuesday night.
    The Kirtland Central Broncos outscored the Hilltoppers in all four quarters Tuesday despite several comeback attempts throughout the game. The Broncos held on for a 67-55 victory, spoiling the head coaching debut of Matt King.
    Los Alamos had several chances to tie the score throughout Tuesday, cutting the lead down to just three points late in the third quarter, but couldn’t find the critical defensive stops when it needed them.

  • Basketball: Irving, Smith lead...

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Kyrie Irving didn't wait long to make his mark at Duke.

    The freshman guard scored 17 points and did an outstanding defensive job on preseason All-America Jacob Pullen and the top-ranked Blue Devils beat No. 4 Kansas State 82-68 on Tuesday night to win the O'Reilly Auto Parts CBE Classic.

  • Cross country: LA boys 9th,...

    Members of the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys cross country team finished in ninth place at this weekend’s regional championship meet.
    The Nike Cross Southwest Regional Championship was held Saturday in Mesa, Ariz. Both Los Alamos teams qualified for the meet. The top two teams at the regional meet earned automatic bids to the Nike Cross Nationals, which will be held in Portland, Ore., Dec. 4.

  • Baseball: Votto voted NL's...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Joey Votto and Albert Pujols had a long conversation behind the batting cage before a game a few years ago.

    "There's something about a star player of that magnitude kind of pulling you in and saying, it's OK, we can talk, don't be a rookie right now, we're going to talk like men," Votto said. "I think he made me feel comfortable and a little more confident."

  • It’s a whole new hoop game

    Things are going to be considerably different around the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball program for the 2010-11 season.
    With several noticeable absences from last season, hardly the least of which is the 6 foot, 11 inch frame of its star center, Los Alamos will have its first chance to see how the changes are taking shape Tuesday night.
    The Hilltoppers will open their 2010-11 campaign Tuesday on the road when they travel to the Four Corners area. They will square off at 7 p.m. against the Kirtland Central Broncos.

  • Sundevils’ Salazar, Elks’ Gomez...

    Española Valley’s Karli Salazar was named to the North All-Star volleyball team Wednesday.
    The New Mexico High School Coaches Association, which sponsors the statewide All-Star teams, made the announcement in a press release.
    Salazar, a setter for Española Valley, was one of two District 2AAAA representatives to be selected for the honor. The other was Santa Fe High School’s outside hitter Shivaughn Hatt.
    No Hilltoppers were named to the North squad.
