  • Boise State set to join Big East

    NEW YORK (AP) — The Big East’s long-awaited additions are set, with more rebuilding to come.
    The conference is preparing to announce the additions of Boise State and San Diego State as football-only members and Houston, Central Florida and SMU for all sports as soon as Wednesday, a person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press. The five schools will join in 2013.
    The person spoke Tuesday on condition of anonymity because details were still being worked out with the schools and plans for an announcement were being completed.

  • Toppers rally to top Eagles

    After scoring just one field goal in a more than five minute stretch in the first quarter, Los Alamos Hilltopper Thomas Russell sparked his team in the second quarter.
    Russell dropped in 10 straight points in the second quarter to rally the Hilltoppers over the Belen Eagles’ boys basketball team Tuesday night.
    Meanwhile, the Hilltopper defense was stout throughout the contest, holding Belen to single-digit scoring in three quarters to win 46-33.
    The win was an important one for the Hilltoppers, who not only topped a Class 4A opponent and snapping a three-game losing streak, but to give them some momentum heading into a very tough three-day tournament at Albuquerque Academy (see page 7).

  • Luck needs luck to win Heisman...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Stanford’s Andrew Luck is returning to New York as a Heisman Trophy finalist, just not as the favorite.
    That distinction belongs to Baylor’s Robert Griffin III.
    The two star quarterbacks will join fellow finalists Trent Richardson, Tyrann Mathieu and Montee Ball at the Heisman presentation Saturday night in Manhattan.
    Luck is the only repeat finalist this season, while Griffin is the first Baylor player to get an invite to the ceremony. The school that never has had a player finish better than fourth in the Heisman voting now seems to have the front-runner.

  • LA-Belen hoops contest is on for...

    Despite the weather, Los Alamos’ Hilltopper boys basketball team and the Belen Eagles will face off tonight in Griffith Gymnasium.
    Tip-off for tonight’s varsity game is at 7 p.m. The game was confirmed by Los Alamos High School athletic director Vicki Nelms this morning.
    Los Alamos (1-3) hasn’t played in nearly a week. In its last outing, Los Alamos was humbled by a short-handed St. Michael’s team, falling 54-29 in Santa Fe.
    The Hilltoppers started off the 2011-12 season strong, downing Kirtland Central Nov. 22 but have dropped three straight since.

  • Neal earns honors for the...

    Former Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer star Kelsey Neal put together a big 2011 season at the Colorado School of Mines.
    Neal, who graduated in 2010, was one of two CSM Orediggers named to the Division II All-American team. Neal was picked as a third team All-American by the D-II members of the College Sports Information Directors of America.
    Neal, a sophomore for the Orediggers, is the first defender in program history to be named to the All-America team.
    This season, the Orediggers shut out four of their last five opponents on their way to a berth in the Division-II women’s soccer Elite Eight, while allowing just nine total shots on goal during that stretch.

  • ´Toppers finish 14th in season...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team started its season off with a solid middle-of-the-pack finish in one of the toughest contests in the state.
    Los Alamos took 14th at the Southwest Duals this weekend. The Southwest Duals, hosted by Rio Rancho, included not only some of the top teams in New Mexico, but teams from all across the region, including Texas, Arizona, Colorado and even as far away as Kansas.
    It was the 2011-12 opener for the Hilltoppers, who brought a nearly complete roster with them to the duals. The Hilltoppers, who have struggled filling out a full lineup for most of the recent past, have as many as 30 wrestlers available to them this season.
    Los Alamos was only lacking a 106- and 126-pounder for this tournament.
