  • Football: Haynesworth getting no...

    ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Albert Haynesworth finally showed up for work — and quickly learned the Washington Redskins won't be cutting him any slack.

    On the eve of the first day of training camp, Haynesworth ended his months-long boycott of the team by meeting Wednesday morning with coach Mike Shanahan. Hardly sympathetic to the plight of a player who recently received a $21 million bonus, the coach wasn't about to let bygones by bygones.

  • Golf: City Championship opens...

    While the fairways at Los Alamos Golf Course are usually busy on weekends, this weekend they’ll be jam-packed.

    LAGC will be hosting the 63rd Los Alamos City Championship. The City Championship, which is hosted by Los Alamos Golf Association and Los Alamos Women’s Golf Association, is a stroke-play contest that will be held Saturday and Sunday.

    This year’s City tournament is shaping up to be the biggest in history.

  • Basketball: All-Star game to be...

    The North-South Class 4A-5A All-Star boys basketball game will be streamed live on the Internet tonight.

    The game, which will be played at Valley High School in Albuquerque, will feature former Los Alamos Hilltopper standout Alex Kirk.

    The game will be streamed live at proviewnetworks.com. The broadcast is scheduled to start at 7:30 p.m.

  • TCU picked to repeat in Mountain...

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — TCU is still on top in the Mountain West Conference.

    The Horned Frogs received all 31 first-place votes in the league's preseason media poll, released Tuesday.

    "Probably what that means is that we have good talent. Now we have to live up to it," TCU coach Gary Patterson said. "I think that's the whole thing. It doesn't matter what people say about them in August. Preseason goes off of what happened last year."

  • Volleyball: Ealey wraps up prep...

    ALBUQUERQUE — Taylor Ealey has never been much for playing second fiddle to anyone and rarely has she had to.

    So when, following her first of two All-Star appearances this summer, she had a conversation with New Mexico Highlands basketball coach Heather Sankey, Ealey decided that the school in Las Vegas, N.M., might be a better fit for her than trying to squeeze onto the program at Adams State College in Alamosa, Colo.

    “They wanted me more,” Ealey said of the coaching staff at Highlands.

  • Baseball: Garza tosses first no-...

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Matt Garza insists the first no-hitter in Tampa Bay history and the fifth in the major leagues this season isn't the most satisfying moment of his career.

    That, Garza said Monday night after facing the minimum 27 batters to beat the Detroit Tigers 5-0, came during an MVP performance as the winning pitcher in Game 7 of the 2008 AL championship series.

  • Swimming: LA Aquatomics send 28...

  • Kirk, Ealey set to take part in...

    A pair of top-shelf Los Alamos High School athletes will be making their final appearances of their prep careers this week.

    Former Los Alamos athletes Alex Kirk and Taylor Ealey will be taking part in North-South All-Star contests.

    The North-South All-Star contests are sponsored by the New Mexico High School Coaches Association. The NMHSCA hosts the North-South series annually, which pit the top graduating players in the state in various prep sports.

  • Rugby: Dinkel goes to national...

    It took awhile for Liz Dinkel to figure out what sport she wanted to take part in, but once she did, she became pretty darn good at it.

    So much so, Dinkel was recently invited to a prestigious camp.

    Dinkel, a Los Alamos resident, took part in the USA Women’s 7s rugby trial session last weekend. Dinkel, a standout rugby player for the Los Alamos Rugby Club for several years, was invited by USA Women’s Eagles head coach Ric Suggitt to take part in the three-day camp held at the University of California-Santa Barbara.

  • Baseball: WR to take on Carlsbad...

    The White Rock 9-10 All-Star baseball team will open up play at the state tournament Saturday morning.

    The state 9-10 Little League All-Star tournament will be held at Ragsdale Field in Raton.

    White Rock, which won the District 1 tournament, held at Overlook Park last weekend, will take on Carlsbad in the first round of the double-elimination state tournament. That game, the first game on the schedule, will be played at 9 a.m.

    In all, eight teams are expected to vie for the state 9-10 title.
