    It was a repeat win for both the top competitors at this 2010 Pajarito Punishment.

    The Pajarito Punishment, a New Mexico Off-Road Series race, was held Saturday at Pajarito Mountain. The Punishment is considered one of the toughest races in the NMORS. In all, 151 riders finished Saturday’s race.

  • Golf: Tiger says game is...

    PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) — The one shot that got so much attention during practice 10 years ago at Pebble Beach was a 4-iron that Tiger Woods hit so high, so straight, so flush that it landed softly near the pin on a brick-hard green at the par-3 12th.

    That wasn't the case Tuesday at the U.S. Open.

    There is not much about Woods that looks the same as it once did.

    "Tiger!" he muttered to himself as his 4-iron sailed weakly to the left of the 12th green, closer to the gallery than the pin.

  • Hockey: Third time's a...

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) — This was one hat trick Marian Hossa wanted no part of turning.

    The Stanley Cup finals had become Hossa's personal playground each of the last three years with different clubs. Although the star forward had gotten as far as the championship round several times, he was never able to seal the deal and raise the coveted silver chalice over his head.

    Until now.

  • UPDATE: All-Star Game slated for...

    Tonight's Class 4A/5A North-South All-Star girls basketball game will be played at Highland High School in Albuquerque.

    Highland High School's gym, one of the most storied facilities in Albuquerque, was the host to several state championships in the 1950s.

    Highland is located at 4700 Coal Ave. in Albuquerque.

    Former Hilltopper standout Taylor Ealey is scheduled to play in tonight's All-Star Game. Game time is scheduled for 8 p.m.

  • Hockey: Local skaters Art,...

    A pair of local hockey players, Chandler Art and MK English will represent New Mexico and the Rocky Mountain region when they travel to Buffalo, N.Y., next month.

    Art and English, veterans of the Los Alamos Hockey Association, were picked to join Mountain States Girls Hockey League 14 and under All-Star team. The MSGHL’s All-Star team includes several players from both New Mexico and Colorado.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Poor Stephen Strasburg. Too much pressure to put on a 21-year-old kid. No way he could live up to the hype, right?

    Ha!

    Strasburg didn't fall short of the hype. If anything, the hype fell short of him. Fourteen strikeouts. Not a single walk. An electrifying performance, including an unforgettable final inning in which he struck out the side while all of Nationals Park roared with every pitch.

  • LAHS Athletics: Pongratz rocks...

    Rocket scientist Morrie Pongratz gets a lift out of watching sports and also enjoys mentoring teens. He has spent the last couple of decades in an endeavor that melds the two activities together quite nicely — announcing ‘Topper sports for Los Alamos High School.

    “I started announcing because no one was doing the girls games and that didn’t seem quite fair,” Pongratz said. “Also, I go to the games anyway and this gives me a good seat.”

  • Girls basketball: Ealey to play...

    Former Los Alamos Hilltopper standout basketball player Taylor Ealey will get one more chance to shine at Thursday’s North-South All-Star Game.

    Ealey, one of the main cogs in the Hilltoppers’ recent successes, is scheduled to participate in the North-South All-Star Game, which will be played in Albuquerque. Which Albuquerque gym the game will be played in had not, however, been announced as of this morning.
