  • Boys soccer: Hilltoppers could...

    For the past several seasons, according to Evan Gartz, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team has been something of a punching bag for the Rio Rancho Rams.

    But heading into today’s game, the Hilltoppers are hoping to deal a couple of haymakers of their own.

    With Los Alamos set to open its 2010 season at Rio Rancho, expectations around the team could scarcely be higher for the team to end its 23-year-long drought for a state championship.

  • Girls soccer: Toppers score 6...

    Any questions as to where the offense might come from for the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team certainly weren’t being asked Tuesday.

    The offense pretty much came from everywhere.

    Los Alamos more than found its groove in the second half of its 2010 season opener Tuesday afternoon at Sullivan Field, scoring six goals out of 10 shots taken at one point, to rout the Belen Eagles 9-0.

  • Boys soccer: LA is third in...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team picked up a first-place vote in the first poll conducted by NMSoccer.com.

    In the first poll of 2010, the Hilltoppers finished third, picking up 31 total points. Voting for this week concluded Sunday.

  • Cycling: Local rider helping her...

    It’s the best of both worlds for those who do what they love to do and do it for a good cause.

    Local cyclist, Cathy Cleland will do just that next weekend as she hits the road for the Multiple Sclerosis ride Saturday and Sunday.

    The Bike MS: Pedal Los Pueblos is a fundraising event that has cyclists hitting the road for two days, covering 150 miles.

    Cleland, who has been cycling for 25 years, said she can’t wait to take part in the annual trek. Cleland started out cycling for fun and turned it into a lifestyle.

  • Girls soccer: Toppers open 2010...

    The fall 2010 season officially gets underway Tuesday with the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team having the honor.

    Los Alamos will be at home for its season opener, taking on a team it hasn’t seen for awhile, the Belen Eagles.

    Little was known about the Eagles in Hilltopper camp, but the focus of this game and much of Los Alamos’ early season schedule isn’t going to be about preparing for its opponents so much as getting itself ready.

  • Brett Favre is back in Minnesota

    EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Brett Favre's latest summer of indecision finally appears to be over.

    Favre arrived in Minnesota on Tuesday and it wouldn't be a surprise to see him in a Vikings helmet and red quarterback's jersey when the team takes the field for practice on Wednesday.

  • UPDATE: Vikings say Favre will...

    EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Brett Favre is back with the Minnesota Vikings.

    The Vikings said on their website Wednesday morning that Favre was scheduled to practice with the team, less than 24 hours after they sent three of his closest friends to Mississippi to bring him back after another summer of indecision.
