  • Boys soccer: LA picks up win,...

    A solid victory by the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team keeps it right on track for what could shape up as the biggest game of its 2010 regular season.
    The Hilltoppers got six goals from six different players to drop the Santa Fe Demons 6-0 Tuesday at Ivan Head Stadium. The win keeps the Hilltoppers undefeated in District 2AAAA play and primed for a showdown with the Capital Jaguars in the Hilltoppers’ season finale next week.

    ATLANTA (AP) — Less than 48 hours after Bobby Cox wrapped up his managing career, the Atlanta Braves introduced former Florida manager Fredi Gonzalez as his replacement.

    The announcement Wednesday was widely expected since Gonzalez was fired in June by the Marlins. Cox had said more than a year ago this would be his final season, and his two-decade-long tenure ended with a loss to San Francisco in the NL division series Monday night.

  • Baseball: Lee tosses another gem...

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The Texas Rangers mobbed Cliff Lee in front of the pitcher's mound before trotting off to the clubhouse for a celebration 50 seasons in the making.

  • Football: ´Toppers can’t hang on...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper football team gave away a critical contest Friday night and now must win this week over a tough opponent to keep any realistic hope of a playoff bid alive.
    The Hilltoppers turned the ball over six times Friday night at Bernalillo, four times in the second half as they tried to battle back from a deficit against the Spartans. Additionally, the Hilltoppers lost approximately 70 yards of field position in a tight ballgame due to bad or mishandled snaps out of their “pistol” offensive formation.

  • Girls soccer: LA splits pair...

    With only about two weeks left in the regular season, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team is still trying to learn about itself.
    Whether it does or not may well determine its postseason outlook.
    Los Alamos had a rough second half Friday night hosting the St. Pius X Sartans, falling in that contest 3-0. The team bounced back, however, in a District 2AAAA contest against the Bernalillo Spartans Saturday, grabbing a 3-0 victory and leaving itself just one win away from claiming its fifth-straight district title.
