  • Volleyball: LA drops opener in 4...

    JACONA – In its season debut Saturday, the Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team seemed to be off to a good start.

    After taking the first set off a very tough opponent, the Pojoaque Elks, and jumping out to a big lead late in the second set, things started to go awry.

    Despite its promising start, the Hilltoppers couldn’t keep their early momentum going and fell 3-1 at Ben Lujan Gymnasium.

    The Elks took their time getting into any kind of rhythm, but when their opportunity presented itself, they took advantage.

    A dominating performance at the line of scrimmage in its 2010 season opener propelled the Los Alamos Hilltopper football team to a big win.

    The Hilltoppers held the visiting Pojoaque Elks to just 82 yards total offense Friday night, the bulk of that total coming on the Elks’ first play from scrimmage, as they rolled to a big 40-0 victory at Sullivan Field.

  • Soccer: LA boys, girls fall at...

    Neither Los Alamos Hilltopper soccer team escaped their trip to the Four Corners with a victory Saturday.

    The Hilltopper girls soccer team couldn’t convert on several chances in the opener of a boys-girls doubleheader Saturday, losing in a shootout to the Farmington Scorpions. Meanwhile, the Hilltopper boys again couldn’t hang on to a two-goal lead in the second half, falling 3-2 to the Scorpions at Hutchison Stadium.

  • Boys soccer: LA holds off Rio...

    RIO RANCHO – Through 50 minutes of play, it looked like the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team was going to roll to a big victory in its season opener Thursday.

    But the seasoned Rio Rancho Rams’ squad, which had been largely silent up to that point, started making some noise.

    The Hilltoppers put up a two-goal lead early in the second half against the Rams, a very good Class 5A team, but the Rams came back quickly to score a pair of goals and send the contest into overtime.

  • Now divorced, Woods plays best...

    PARAMUS, N.J. (AP) — Tiger Woods finally looked like the No. 1 player in the world.

    In his first tournament since his divorce, Woods played by far his best round of the year Thursday at The Barclays, missing only one fairway and two greens in a round of 6-under 65. It was his lowest round of the year.

    He was atop the leaderboard at Ridgewood Country Club, with the morning group still not finished.

    For the past several seasons, according to Evan Gartz, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team has been something of a punching bag for the Rio Rancho Rams.

    But heading into today’s game, the Hilltoppers are hoping to deal a couple of haymakers of their own.

    With Los Alamos set to open its 2010 season at Rio Rancho, expectations around the team could scarcely be higher for the team to end its 23-year-long drought for a state championship.

    Any questions as to where the offense might come from for the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team certainly weren’t being asked Tuesday.

    The offense pretty much came from everywhere.

    Los Alamos more than found its groove in the second half of its 2010 season opener Tuesday afternoon at Sullivan Field, scoring six goals out of 10 shots taken at one point, to rout the Belen Eagles 9-0.

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team picked up a first-place vote in the first poll conducted by NMSoccer.com.

    In the first poll of 2010, the Hilltoppers finished third, picking up 31 total points. Voting for this week concluded Sunday.
