  • LA seventh after day one of AAAA...

    LAS CRUCES — There was little pressure on the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls golf team heading into this week’s Class AAAA championship tournament.

    Although the Hilltoppers were among the lowest-ranked teams in AAAA this season, they put together a solid opening round Monday. The Hilltoppers’ opening round score was good enough for seventh place and kept them in the running for a top-three finish this season.

  • Hilltoppers finish eighth in AAAA

    LAS CRUCES — With a top three finish potentially in the cards Tuesday, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls golf team stayed close to its day one tournament pace.

    However, that would not be enough for the Hilltoppers to make any headway in the Class AAAA standings.

    Los Alamos finished eighth in the final team standings at the AAAA championship, which concluded Tuesday at New Mexico State University Golf Course. Los Alamos shot a day two score of 402, which was just three strokes down from its day one finish.

    ALBUQUERQUE — The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys tennis team closed out a solid season taking the runner-up spot at this weekend’s Class AAAA state championship tournament.

    Los Alamos earned two pair of shutout victories in the first two round of the state playoffs, which started Friday and continued through Saturday, but couldn’t overcome the mighty Albuquerque Academy Chargers in the finale.

    SANTA FE — With an automatic bid assured to the Class AAAA championship, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls golf team, the big goal of Friday’s tournament was simply to play well.

    And for the most part, the Hilltoppers were able to do just that.

    Los Alamos won, by default, the District 2AAAA title, being the only team in the district that could field a full set of players. Española Valley was the closest, with three players entered, but teams need a minimum of four players to be eligible for the district title.

    SANTA FE — Coming off a recent victory over the Bernalillo Spartans, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys golf team was feeling confident heading into Friday’s District 2AAAA championship tournament.

    But, although the Hilltoppers shot relatively well Friday, that was apparently no deterrent for the Spartans.

  • Boys tennis: Hilltoppers sweep...

    TAOS — It was about as clean a sweep as could be gotten.

    At the District 2AAAA tennis championship tournament, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys picked up every accolade that was there to be had.

    Los Alamos earned top three places in the boys singles, boys doubles and grabbed the team championship for the 2010 season this weekend. The team and all the individual entries will now advance to the Class AAAA tournament this week.

  • Girls tennis: LA taking 3...

    TAOS — Despite taking it on the chin earlier this month at home, the top Los Alamos girls doubles tennis team was hoping to turn its fortunes around this weekend.

    And it did just that Saturday by throwing the Taos No. 1 doubles team a curveball. Or more accurately, an off-speed pitch.

    In a weekend that turned out to be a big one for the Hilltoper girls tennis team, the victory by Brenna O’Hara/Sarah Worland turned out to be huge.
