  • Football: Artesia tops Aztec for...

    The Artesia Bulldogs added another notch to their record with a big win over the Aztec Tigers in Saturday’s Class AAAA state championship football game.
    The Bulldogs knocked off the Tigers 45-34 in the state title game played in Artesia.
    The state championship victory was the 27th in the history of Artesia football since 1957.
    Artesia won its sixth state title since 2000, when the five-classification system was introduced in New Mexico.

  • Football: Brady, Patriots rout...

    FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Shine a spotlight on Tom Brady and he makes nearly everyone else disappear.

    Especially opposing defenses.

    Brady doesn't lose many big games, certainly not at home and definitely not with so much on the line. He threw for four touchdowns and 326 yards Monday night in New England's 45-3 romp past the New York Jets for his NFL-record 26th straight regular-season home victory.

    It was the most anticipated matchup of the year — and it was a rout from the outset.

  • Cowboys' Don Meredith dies...

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Don Meredith, one of the most recognizable figures of the early Dallas Cowboys and an original member of ABC's "Monday Night Football" broadcast team, died Sunday. He was 72.

    Meredith's wife, Susan, told The Associated Press on Monday her husband died in Santa Fe after suffering a brain hemorrhage and lapsing into a coma. She and her daughter were at Meredith's side when he died.

    "He was the best there was," she said, describing him as kind, warm and funny. "We lost a good one."

  • Swimming and diving: Toppers...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper swimming and diving teams took top honors in their home opener Saturday.
    The Hilltopper boys and girls hosted the Los Alamos Open Saturday. A total of 14 teams from northern New Mexico competed in the event.
    Los Alamos’ boys earned 472.5 points, more than half-again better than Sue Cleveland High School. Los Alamos’ girls collected 554 points, which was good enough for a decisive victory over runner-up Cleveland.

  • Girls basketball: LA tops...

    Making its last home appearance before heading out on a grueling, month-long road trip, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team was hoping to get going on the right foot.
    With a big defensive effort in the first quarter and some timely shooting in the second half, the Hilltoppers were able to do just that Saturday night.

  • Wrestling: Geyer takes 3rd in LA...

    There were few surprises one way or the other for the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team in its first outing of the 2010-11 season.
    The Hilltoppers opened up their campaign Saturday at the Manzano Invitational in Albuquerque, a singles tournament with some tough customers from around northern New Mexico taking part.
    Los Alamos earned one medal in the varsity bracket Saturday and fell just one match short of a second after putting a limited number of entries into the main draw. The team also picked up a first place and a second place junior varsity finish.

  • Hockey: LA routs Cibola, Taos...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper hockey team picked up a pair of big wins this weekend, including a decisive victory over one of their main rivals.
    Los Alamos upended the Taos Ice Tigers Saturday afternoon, taking an 8-3 road victory to improve to 6-1 on the New Mexico Interscholastic Ice Hockey League season. Just one night earlier at home, the Hilltoppers earned a 5-1 win over the Cibola Cougars.
    Saturday’s win gave the Hilltoppers a measure of revenge against the Tigers, who handed them their only loss of the season, that coming in their opener Nov. 12.

    In a letter to the players that was seen by The Associated Press, NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith said the union had an "internal deadline" for agreeing to a new collective bargaining agreement.
