  • Girls track and field: Topper...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls track and field team closed out its regular season with another big victory Friday.

    The Hilltoppers grabbed 152 team points to earn a win at the Los Alamos Invitational. The meet was held at Sullivan Field amidst blustery conditions Friday afternoon. Only the Aztec Tigers finished within 130 points of the Hilltoppers in their season finale.

    Los Alamos, the top-ranked team in Class AAAA, will head into this week’s 2AAAA championship meet as the heavy favorite to win, even if it elects not to use its top athletes.

  • Boys track and field: LA wins...

    Despite miserable conditions Friday, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys track and field team still managed to pick up a victory at home.

    The Hilltopper boys grabbed 110 team points to finish well ahead of the competition at Friday’s Los Alamos Invitational. The meet was the finale of the regular season for the Hilltoppers.

    Los Alamos earned 25 personal best marks at the event despite prevalent winds that hit 40 mph at Sullivan Field.

  • Softball: Toppers win 2-4A crown...

    BERNALILLO — Apparently, the Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team got hot at the right time.

    Los Alamos’ impressive win streak it started more than a month ago, but on Saturday, it blossomed into a District 2AAAA championship.

    Los Alamos leapt the final hurdle of the 2AAAA race Saturday, taking both ends of a doubleheader from Bernalillo’s Spartans. Pitcher Monika Teter earned the victory in the first game, then came back in the nightcap to close out the win.

  • Baseball: LA splits road...

    BERNALILLO — Few will ever accuse the 2010 Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team of not having a flair for the dramatic.

    In its quest to earn the District 2AAAA championship, Los Alamos had to come back from two runs down in the top of the seventh of Saturday’s game one to earn a big victory. And while the Hilltoppers fell in the second game of Saturday’s twinbill, they still managed to make their final at-bat an interesting one.

  • Softball: LA holds on to top...

    Heading into the biggest set of games of the season, the Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team kept its impressive winning streak intact.

    The Hilltoppers held on in a tight contest Thursday, topping the Class 5A Sue Cleveland Storm 1-0 at Overlook Park.

    Los Alamos scored in the bottom of the first, but got little going offensively for the rest of the contest. However, the team’s pitching and defense was solid throughout.

  • Running: Romero is best...

    Alexander Romero had the top prediction in this week’s Atomic City Roadrunners’ pace race.

    The pace race was held Tuesday in Lower Bayo Canyon and featured both a 1- and 3-mile course.

    Romero, running on the 3-mile course, finished just two seconds off his predicted time to take the top spot this week. The next closest predictors included Jeff Hill (13 seconds off) and Deidre Witherell (15 seconds off).

  • Basketball: Kirk, Ealey picked...

  • LA teams submit their state...

With only a few exceptions — in the cases of illness, injury or similar unforeseen circumstances — the rosters may not be modified for the state team tournament, which will be played in Albuquerque May 7-8.
