  • Kirk learning the ins and outs...

    ALBUQUERQUE — Even compared to the typically busy life of a college student, Alex Kirk stays hopping.
    Kirk, the former Los Alamos High School boys basketball standout, made a big impression on the coaching staff of the University of New Mexico and found himself in the starting five for the Lobos to start the season as a true freshman.

  • Swimming: At 90, Miles still...

    Many people celebrate their birthdays with cake. Dan Miles celebrated his birthday with a dip in the pool.
    Miles, who’s hardly a stranger to the water, went up and back the whole length of the Larry R. Walkup Aquatic Center 90 times for his 90th birthday last week.
    And, just the way any longtime competitive swimmer might, Miles was unimpressed with his performance.

    The Hilltoppers are set to embark on a four-day road trip to the Four Corners area, where they will play three District 1AAAA teams, including two of the top-rated teams in the state.

    Balog named All-State defensive back

    Hilltopper defensive back Kory Balog was named to the All-Class 4A second team for the 2010 season.

    Balog, who led Los Alamos in interceptions and was among the team leaders in tackles this season, was named to the second team secondary defense by the New Mexico High School Coaches Association. The all-state 4A selections were announced Wednesday.

    Balog, who was also the team's quarterback for the past two seasons, was the lone Hilltopper to earn All-State honors this year.

  • Hockey: LA tops NMIIHL standings...

    With its eight-game winning streak, including running the table with its weekend’s tripleheader, the Los Alamos Hilltopper hockey team moved into first place in league standings.
    Los Alamos (8-1) took sole possession of the top spot in the New Mexico Interscholastic Ice Hockey League, thanks largely to the trifecta this weekend.
    It owns 16 points, two more than the team it moved past, Taos, and holds a half-game lead over both Taos and Albuquerque’s Outkast, although the Outkast have 17 total points.

  • LA’s USTA team headed to...

    The Los Alamos ladies’ senior tennis team won a pair of playoff matches over the weekend to put them into the Southwest Sectionals.
    Los Alamos won the Northern New Mexico District playoffs in the seniors’ United States Tennis Association 3.5 division. Los Alamos knocked off both Tanoan Country Club of Albuquerque Saturday afternoon and Sangre de Cristo of Santa Fe Sunday.
    In both of the weekend contests, which were held at Urban Park, Los Alamos took the No. 1 and No. 2 doubles to win the best-of-three playoffs, both by counts of 2-1.

  • Football: Ravens beat Texans in...

    HOUSTON (AP) — Joe Flacco was clicking, the defense was dominating and even the special teams scored a touchdown.

    The Baltimore Ravens seemed to be rolling to an easy victory in Houston on Monday night, then nearly let it all slip away.

    Luckily for the Ravens, the Texans are inept at finishing games.
