    The Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team finished off the first half of its District 2AAAA season with a spotless record by knocking off Capital Wednesday night.

    The Hilltoppers earned their fourth consecutive district sweep Wednesday at Capital, downing the Jaguars 3-0. That victory put the Hilltoppers at 4-0 on the district season (13-3 overall).

    Los Alamos has won all four of its 2AAAA matches this season by way of sweep. It has lost just six games on its current nine-match winning streak and has lost just one game since Sept. 24.

  • Boys soccer: LA gets throttled...

    ALBUQUERQUE — One of the most prolific scorers in the state and one of its best teams showed the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer squad why they have those titles Tuesday.

    St. Pius X, the most successful program in the state, had little trouble dispatching the upset-minded Hilltoppers Tuesday afternoon at Sartan Field.

    Behind its outstanding frontman Kaelan Brennan, who dominated play in the first half, St. Pius scored early and often, cruising to a 5-1 nondistrict victory.

  • Swimming: Dai named Scholastic...

    Eric Dai, one of the top club swimmers in Los Alamos, was named as a Scholastic All-American by USA Swimming.

    Dai, who in the past six years swimming competitively has set 12 state age group records, was the only local swimmer to be named to the team.

    The team is composed of USA Swimming competitors in grades 10-12. Swimmers are eligible if they have earned a 3.5 grade-point average or better and have achieved a Junior National Bonus Time Standard or swam in a selected disability championship meet.

    Despite some struggles in games one and three, the Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team earned a big win Saturday night at Griffith Gymnasium.

    The Hilltoppers held on in the odd-numbered games Saturday to pick up a critical District 2AAAA win Saturday night, holding off surges from the Española Valley Sundevils to take a 3-0 decision.

    Los Alamos watched a late 8-point advantage shrink down to just two in game one, then couldn’t shake the Sundevils in game three until a late rally put that game and the match away.

  • Football: LA opens up its...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper football team took its first step toward defending its District 2AAAA title at home Friday night.

    The Hilltoppers scored three times in the first half of Friday night’s game and cruised to a 38-0 win over the Taos Tigers at Sullivan Field.

  • Girls soccer: LA blanks Taos on...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team rolled to another big district win Saturday night at Taos.

    After getting acclimated to the new artificial turf at Taos, Los Alamos scored eight times in just over 60 minutes to pick up the road victory.

    Hilltopper head coach Jiri Kubicek said Taos’ new surface threw off his team’s passing game for about the first 20 minutes, but once his team was able to keep the ball to the feet, things went just fine.

    Los Alamos won Saturday’s game 8-0.

  • Boys soccer: Toppers win big...

    Davis Anson had a pair of goals and Andy Thoma picked up a pair of assists in Saturday’s second half, helping the Hilltoppers to their second shutout win of the season over Taos.
