  • Football: LA hosts season finale...

    Los Alamos closes out its regular season with a District 2AAAA contest tonight at home. The Hilltoppers will host the Capital Jaguars at 7 p.m.

    A win coupled with a favorable outcome between Santa Fe and Bernalillo — those two teams play tonight — could give the Hilltoppers the district title this season. Should Santa Fe prevail at home against Bernalillo by a margin of between 2-7 points, the Hilltoppers will win the district title on the point-differential tiebreaker.

  • Baseball: Renteria, Cain give...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Fans jumped up and down, shaking orange pompoms, waving scarves and chanting "Sweep! Sweep!"

    While the Giants are looking more and more like a baseball juggernaut, they're only halfway to their first World Series title in 56 years. They hope to wrap it up on the road.

  • Volleyball: Toppers finish off...

    On Senior Night at Griffith Gymnasium, a junior jump-started the Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team’s effort to finish off the 2010 District 2AAAA season undefeated.
    Hilltopper Chase Ealey had six spike kills in the first set of Wednesday’s match as Los Alamos finished off its regular season with a 3-1 victory over the Capital Jaguars.
    Los Alamos, which had posted five straight shutout victories heading into the final two matches of the season, dropped sets against both Española Valley Saturday and the Jaguars Wednesday.

  • Cross country: LA primed to grab...

    The only question concerning the outcome of the 2010 District 2AAAA cross country championships is not who will win, but by how much.
    Both the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls cross country teams are the favorites to win in Friday’s district meet, which will be run at Santa Fe’s Municipal Recreation Center just off N.M. 599.
    As usual, the Hilltoppers are King Kong-sized favorites heading into the race.

  • Cross country: Barranca Mesa,...

    The girls team from Barranca Mesa finished with a near-perfect score at Friday’s Elementary School Mile Run.
    The run is held annually in conjunction with the Los Alamos Invitational cross country meet. Any elementary school student is eligible to compete in the run.
    Zoe Challacombe, a sixth-grader at Barranca Mesa, led a group of sixth graders from her school to the near-perfect finish. Only Aspen’s Maria Sandoval broke up the perfect score bid in the race, edging out Kenidee Hatler, Barranca’s fifth runner.

  • Basketball: Duke No. 1 in first...

    Defending national champion Duke was a runaway No. 1 in The Associated Press preseason Top 25 men's basketball poll.

    At the other end of the Top 25 there was big news Thursday with San Diego State entering the rankings for the first time ever.

  • Baseball: Giants rough up Lee...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — All season, the San Francisco Giants counted on power arms to overcome a lack of pop at the plate.

    A whole different team showed up in the World Series opener.

    Freddy Sanchez hit three doubles, Juan Uribe launched a game-breaking, three-run homer and the Giants more than made up for Tim Lincecum's troubles, battering the Texas Rangers 11-7 in Game 1 Wednesday night.

    Even more surprising, the Giants whacked Cliff Lee.

  • Soccer: Neal, Thoma and Delano...

    Los Alamos Hilltopper soccer players took three of the top four individual honors in District 2AAAA this season.
    Hilltoppers Andy Thoma and Amy Neal were named the Offensive Players of the Year in district soccer for the 2010 season, as announced by the district Tuesday.
    Meanwhile, 2009 District Player of the Year, Graham Delano, once again was given one of the district’s top honors, taking Defensive Player of the Year.

  • Basketball: James' 31 not...

    BOSTON (AP) — LeBron James and the Miami Heat were showered with chants of "overrated!" They sure looked that way in their debut as a team formed to win a championship.

    The old Big Three of the Boston Celtics, playing under the franchise's 17 title banners, beat the new Big Three of James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh 88-80 on Tuesday night.
