    ESPAÑOLA — Once more, the Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team pulled off a comeback in a big district game, although its comeback started a little earlier than usual.

    The Hilltoppers took on the Española Valley Sundevils Wednesday and once again fell behind early in the contest.

    However, the Hilltoppers strung together four hits and a walk to open the third inning and get right back into Wednesday’s ballgame.

  • Softball: LA stays perfect in 2-...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team is poised to make a clean sweep in District 2AAAA.

    Los Alamos topped district opponent Española Valley on the road Wednesday. Los Alamos scored three runs in the third inning to take control of its contest against Española Valley’s Sundevils and cruised to a 7-3 victory.

    Wednesday’s win was the 13th in a row for the Hilltoppers (16-7 overall, 10-0 in 2AAAA) heading into what could be an important game for seeding purposes. The Hilltoppers were scheduled to play at Moriarty today.

  • Erickson is top predictor Tuesday

    A few runners went the extra mile at this week’s Atomic City Roadrunners’ pace race, although they didn’t mean to.

    This week’s pace race was held Tuesday at Big Rock Loop. In all, 19 runners took part in the run.

    Because of some confusion over the race’s pavement markings, several runners took a wrong turn and ended up running approximately one extra mile.

  • TENNIS

    Hilltopper tennis players Patrick Raichur, Matt Whicker and Brenna O’Hara could all be big factors in this weekend’s District 2AAAA championship tournaments.

    The tournaments, which will be played through Saturday in Taos, will determine which teams, individuals and doubles squads advance to the Class AAAA state championship.

    Los Alamos Hilltopper girls tennis head coach Bruce Cottrell was named the Coach of the Year for the 2010 season.

    While two out of three ain’t bad, three out of three is considerably better.

    That was the feat that Los Alamos Hilltopper golfer Alicia Herrera pulled off during the spring 2010 season.

    Herrera, who will head to the Class AAAA state championship tournament next week with her team, had been away from the game of golf for almost nine months before the start of the spring golf season, but that didn’t slow her down very much.
