    PHILADELPHIA (AP) — This was one hat trick Marian Hossa wanted no part of turning.

    The Stanley Cup finals had become Hossa's personal playground each of the last three years with different clubs. Although the star forward had gotten as far as the championship round several times, he was never able to seal the deal and raise the coveted silver chalice over his head.

    Until now.

  • UPDATE: All-Star Game slated for...

    Tonight's Class 4A/5A North-South All-Star girls basketball game will be played at Highland High School in Albuquerque.

    Highland High School's gym, one of the most storied facilities in Albuquerque, was the host to several state championships in the 1950s.

    Highland is located at 4700 Coal Ave. in Albuquerque.

    Former Hilltopper standout Taylor Ealey is scheduled to play in tonight's All-Star Game. Game time is scheduled for 8 p.m.

  • Hockey: Local skaters Art,...

    A pair of local hockey players, Chandler Art and MK English will represent New Mexico and the Rocky Mountain region when they travel to Buffalo, N.Y., next month.

    Art and English, veterans of the Los Alamos Hockey Association, were picked to join Mountain States Girls Hockey League 14 and under All-Star team. The MSGHL’s All-Star team includes several players from both New Mexico and Colorado.

  • MLB: Strasburg fans 14 in Nats...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Poor Stephen Strasburg. Too much pressure to put on a 21-year-old kid. No way he could live up to the hype, right?

    Ha!

    Strasburg didn't fall short of the hype. If anything, the hype fell short of him. Fourteen strikeouts. Not a single walk. An electrifying performance, including an unforgettable final inning in which he struck out the side while all of Nationals Park roared with every pitch.

  • LAHS Athletics: Pongratz rocks...

    Rocket scientist Morrie Pongratz gets a lift out of watching sports and also enjoys mentoring teens. He has spent the last couple of decades in an endeavor that melds the two activities together quite nicely — announcing ‘Topper sports for Los Alamos High School.

    “I started announcing because no one was doing the girls games and that didn’t seem quite fair,” Pongratz said. “Also, I go to the games anyway and this gives me a good seat.”

  • Girls basketball: Ealey to play...

    Former Los Alamos Hilltopper standout basketball player Taylor Ealey will get one more chance to shine at Thursday’s North-South All-Star Game.

    Ealey, one of the main cogs in the Hilltoppers’ recent successes, is scheduled to participate in the North-South All-Star Game, which will be played in Albuquerque. Which Albuquerque gym the game will be played in had not, however, been announced as of this morning.

  • Track and field: Weeks places...

    Emily Weeks was so sure that her long jump finish wouldn’t get her into the finals, let alone the medal round, that she left to go see her new niece.

    An official at the Great Southwest Track and Field Invitational told Weeks, a graduate of Los Alamos High School, that her best jump of the meet was in the 17-foot range. That information, however, was a little lacking.

    Weeks’ official finish at the meet was 19 feet, 4-1/4 inches, good enough for third place even without the benefit of her final jumps.

  • Baseball: Lobos Lose to No. 6...

    FULLERTON, Calif. --- The University of New Mexico baseball team just couldn't get things

    going today in an elimination game at the 2010 NCAA Fullerton Regional.  The Lobos lost

    to host Cal State Fullerton, 11-3, to end the season.  New Mexico finishes the 2010

    season with a 38-22 record and its first appearance in the NCAA Tournament since 1962.

     

    "We got our butts kicked," said Lobo head coach Ray Birmingham." They played well, we
