  • Football: Bush forfeits Heisman...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Reggie Bush is giving back the trophy. To many, though, he'll always be a Heisman winner.

    "Everyone still knows Reggie Bush was the best player that year. Look at the runs. He was clearly the best player," said Johnny Rodgers, the 1972 Heisman winner from Nebraska. "O.J. Simpson got accused of a murder and they didn't take his back. That was a far greater allegation, and they didn't find O.J. guilty on that."

  • Cross country: LAMS teams sweep...

    The Los Alamos Middle School Hawk cross country teams picked up a clean sweep in their first outing of the 2010 season.
    LAMS debuted at the Pecos Invitational Wednesday.
    The two Hawk girls teams posted the low scores of the two-grade meet, held on a hilly course.
    The Hawk seventh grade girls finished with just 23 points at the meet, while the Hawk eighth grade girls earned just 27 points. Meanwhile, the eighth grade boys had 33 points and the seventh grade boys finished with 54 points. All four teams finished well ahead of their closest competitors.

  • Tennis: Nadal breaks through to...

    NEW YORK (AP) — For seven years, Rafael Nadal deposited his share of skin and blood and sweat and effort on the imposing blue court in the middle of the biggest tennis stadium in the world.

    At the end of the eighth year, he collapsed and rolled over, his face to the ground, exhausted while he celebrated — knowing that finally, he would take something away from the court where he'd left so much.

  • Girls soccer: LA tops Oñate,...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team split its final two games of the Albuquerque Academy Invitational this weekend.
    After falling 2-0 to Sue Cleveland to open the Academy tournament Thursday, the Hilltoppers fell in Friday’s second round to Las Cruces 1-0 in two overtime periods. To finish off the three-day tournament, the Hilltoppers bounced back to knock off Oñate 3-0.

  • Football: LA has chances, but...

    FARMINGTON — It could’ve been worse, but it could’ve been better, too.
    On its first road trip of the 2010 season and the first road trip in the career of head coach Garett Williams, the Los Alamos Hilltopper football team had a tall order, taking on the fifth-ranked team in Class AAAA, the Farmington Scorpions.
    The Scorpions, who had a mammoth offensive and defensive line, controlled the point of attack for much of the game, and cruised in the second half to a 41-12 victory at Hutchison Stadium.

  • Volleyball: LA upends Roswell to...

     

    This season, the Los Alamos Hilltoppper volleyball team has been desperately seeking a win that was going to jump-start this season.

    That win could well have just happened.

    In the final of the Zia Classic Invitational Tournament in Roswell, Los Alamos stunned the Roswell Coyotes to take the tournament title. Los Alamos held off for a big set one victory, then crushed the Coyotes in the second set.

    The third set got hairy at the end, but the Hilltoppers held on to earn a 25-23, 25-14, 25-23 victory and grab a big early season win.

  • Soccer: LA teams head to...

    Both the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls soccer teams will head to one of the toughest regular season tournaments in the state Thursday.

    The Hilltopper boys and girls will open the 2010 Albuquerque Academy Invitational Thursday afternoon. Los Alamos' girls will take on new Class 5A entry Sue Cleveland High School at 2:30 p.m. while Los Alamos' boys will have a rematch with Rio Rancho at 4:30 p.m.

    The Academy Invitational continues through Saturday.

  • Volleyball: LA falls in three at...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team had the defense to hang with the Cleveland Storm Tuesday, but not enough on offense to pull off the road upset.
    The Hilltopper back line, led by Danielle Ortiz, was able to pick up the tough service game and slow down Cleveland’s big hitters for much of Tuesday’s contest, but the Storm eventually cracked through to pick up a 25-18, 25-23, 25-20 victory.

  • Football: Hilltoppers take to...

    Longtime assistant coach Don Reid offered a nugget of advice to one of the younger players on the Los Alamos Hilltopper football team prior to Monday’s practice.
    “It’s much more fun to give big hits than to take them.”
    It was a lesson that the Hilltoppers (1-1) may have learned all too well last week and one they’re hoping not to have to relearn as they head into their first road trip of the 2010 season.
    Los Alamos will take on its second-straight ranked opponent this week when it heads northeast to play Farmington.
