  • Toppers knock off Chargers, Rams

    The second half of the winter season didn’t get off to the start the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team was hoping.
    After a disappointing finish Saturday, the Hilltoppers were hoping to bounce back at home Wednesday, and it did. The Hilltoppers knocked off a pair of visiting teams at Auxiliary Gymnasium, defeating both Albuquerque Academy and Rio Rancho.
    Los Alamos picked up a decisive team victory over Academy, taking a 42-23 decision. In the other contest, which featured much of the Rams’ younger wrestlers, Los Alamos nipped the Rams 42-39.
    Wednesday’s competition was originally scheduled to be a quadrangular meet, but Pecos, the fourth invitee, was a no-show. Los Alamos will travel to Pecos for a tournament this weekend.

  • Hilltoppers fall short in...

    After a ruinous second quarter, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team nearly made up for it in the second half of Tuesday’s game.
    Los Alamos hosted the fourth-ranked St. Pius X Sartans Tuesday at Griffith Gymnasium. Not only are the two teams longtime rivals, Los Alamos had a chance to make a big statement with just over a week before the start of the District 2-4A season.
    But the Hilltoppers, after playing virtually even with the Sartans in the opening period, managed just four points in the second quarter. The second of the two buckets the Hilltoppers managed in the quarter came with under 30 seconds left before the half.

  • Toppers, Sartans to clash tonight

    The Los Alamos Hilltoppers boys basketball team will take on an old foe tonight at Griffith Gymnasium.

    Los Alamos will face the St. Pius X Sartans. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m.

    The two teams have a long history, including being District 2-4A rivals during the 2000-2006 seasons.

    This week, the Sartans (9-4) are the No. 4-ranked team in Class 4A and have already compiled some impressive wins, including an 85-65 victory over the team that replaced it in 2-4A, the Bernalillo Spartans.

  • Larkin heading to Hall of Fame

    NEW YORK (AP) — Barry Larkin had no idea back in 1982 that he would become a baseball Hall of Famer thanks to Bo Schembechler.
    A two-sport standout in his senior year of high school, Larkin went to the University of Michigan on a scholarship to play defensive back for Schembechler’s Wolverines. When he arrived in Ann Arbor, Larkin learned he was being redshirted.
    “I was a better football player than a baseball player at the time,” Larkin recalled. “And that was influential because I just worked on my baseball talent, just that alone. And that was an eye-opener because I got so much better.”
