    For the second straight time, the Los Alamos School of Gymnastics’ Alyssa Hilger was the high all-around point-getter.

  • Football: Westbrook rushes for...

    GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Brian Westbrook finally got an opportunity to show he can still do it. News that San Francisco's Frank Gore has a broken right hip means more chances are just ahead.

    Westbrook rushed for 136 yards and a touchdown in place of the injured Gore and the 49ers sent punchless Arizona to its sixth straight loss, 27-6 Monday night in a shower of boos from the Cardinals home crowd.

  • Stanford, Wisconsin, Oklahoma...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Stanford was the big winner in the latest BCS standings.

    The Cardinal, along with Wisconsin, all but locked up bids to the Bowl Championship Series, and Oklahoma earned a spot in the Big 12 title game by outpointing Oklahoma State and Texas A&M on Sunday.

    Auburn and Oregon also switched places at the top of the standings, with the Tigers slipping by the Ducks into first place — but that hardly matters.

  • Boys basketball: 'Toppers...

    Since taking over the head coaching job for the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball program, Matt King has made no bones that his team will be a work-in-progress during the 2010-11 season.
    And now, two games into the season, he is fully aware of where the most work needs to take place.
    In their home opener of the season, and the first home game in King’s coaching stint at Los Alamos, the Hilltoppers turned the ball over 28 times, including losing the ball 17 times in the second and third quarters.

  • Girls basketball: Elks top LA...

    While there are some questions surrounding the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team heading into the 2010-11 season, the Hilltoppers showed they might have some answers soon.
    Friday night in their season debut, the Hilltoppers looked like they might pull out a big win against a very tough opponent the Pojoaque Elks. Instead, however, the Elks rallied from a late 6-pont deficit to earn a 53-51 victory.
    Los Alamos opened its 2010-11 campaign Friday night at Griffith Gymnasium.

  • A party in Albuquerque for...

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — TCU's players handed out roses on the sideline after defeating New Mexico, symbolizing what's next — a possible Rose Bowl trip.

    The No. 3 Horned Frogs (12-0, 8-0) had just capped a perfect regular season for the second straight year, winning 66-17 on Saturday. Mountain West commissioner Craig Thompson dashed into the boisterous locker room and handed over the trophy for TCU's second consecutive league title.

    One night earlier, the Frogs had another celebration at the team hotel.
