  • Boys soccer: LA drops Monday’s...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team couldn’t follow up on its big win at the Louie Cernicek Invitational this weekend.
    The Hilltoppers (4-2) fell to the St. Michael’s Horsemen on the road Monday by a final of 4-3.
    Los Alamos, coming off three victories in two days at the Cernicek tournament — the team’s first win in that tournament since 2004 — didn’t have much in the tank Monday when squaring off against the Horsemen, who were plenty amped up to see them.

  • Cross country: Results from...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls cross country team passed its first test of the 2010 season with flying colors.
    The Hilltoppers knocked off the rest of the 26-team field at Saturday’s University of New Mexico Invitational. The Hilltoppers finished the race with 102 team points, 10 fewer than runner-up La Cueva to take top honors in their first outing of the season.

  • Boys soccer: LA grabs first...

    It’s been a long time coming.
    For the first time since 2004, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team is the champion of the Louie Cernicek Invitational Tournament.
    The Hilltoppers survived many a scare in the first half of Saturday night’s championship game at Sullivan Field to top the Belen Eagles. The Hilltoppers scored a pair of goals midway through the second half and rolled to a 3-1 victory.

  • Football: Toppers thumped by 3rd...

    Friday night, the Aztec Tigers showed why they’re the third-ranked team in the state of New Mexico and no one had a better view than the Los Alamos Hilltoppers.
    The Hilltopper football team struggled to slow down one of the most prolific offenses in the state and never got much going when it had the ball Friday at Sullivan Field. The Tigers scored five times in the first half and closed out the game with 7:48 remaining, grabbing an impressive 52-0 victory over the Hilltoppers.

  • Azarenka collapses, wheeled off...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Victoria Azarenka collapsed and fell to the ground while chasing down a ball on the baseline and had to be taken off the court in a wheelchair Wednesday, 31 minutes into her match on another steamy day at the U.S. Open.

    The 10th-seeded Belarusian was trailing Gisela Dulko 5-1 in the first set on the Grandstand court. The temperature had reached 90 degrees with 42 percent humidity by 11:30 a.m. On-court temperatures topped 100 degrees.

  • Federer, V.Williams, Roddick win...

    NEW YORK (AP) — This trick shot by Roger Federer was most definitely real.

    He's even hit it before.

    The five-time U.S. Open champion was up at the net when his first-round opponent, 96th-ranked Brian Dabul of Argentina, lofted a lob. Federer spun around to sprint toward the baseline. A couple of steps before reaching the wall behind the court at Arthur Ashe Stadium, and with his back to the net, Federer swatted the ball between his legs. The shot landed in a corner beside Dabul, who raised his eyebrows and shrugged.

  • Volleyball: LA drops opener in 4...

    JACONA – In its season debut Saturday, the Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team seemed to be off to a good start.

    After taking the first set off a very tough opponent, the Pojoaque Elks, and jumping out to a big lead late in the second set, things started to go awry.

    Despite its promising start, the Hilltoppers couldn’t keep their early momentum going and fell 3-1 at Ben Lujan Gymnasium.

    The Elks took their time getting into any kind of rhythm, but when their opportunity presented itself, they took advantage.

  • Football: Toppers roll to big...

    A dominating performance at the line of scrimmage in its 2010 season opener propelled the Los Alamos Hilltopper football team to a big win.

    The Hilltoppers held the visiting Pojoaque Elks to just 82 yards total offense Friday night, the bulk of that total coming on the Elks’ first play from scrimmage, as they rolled to a big 40-0 victory at Sullivan Field.

  • Soccer: LA boys, girls fall at...

    Neither Los Alamos Hilltopper soccer team escaped their trip to the Four Corners with a victory Saturday.

    The Hilltopper girls soccer team couldn’t convert on several chances in the opener of a boys-girls doubleheader Saturday, losing in a shootout to the Farmington Scorpions. Meanwhile, the Hilltopper boys again couldn’t hang on to a two-goal lead in the second half, falling 3-2 to the Scorpions at Hutchison Stadium.
