  • Baseball: Hilltoppers come up...

    Heading into Wednesday’s District 2AAAA contest, the Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team was looking for a spark.

    It found that spark with its last at-bat.

    Down to its last out of the ballgame against the Bernalillo Spartans, Los Alamos center fielder Ryan Schleft belted a double down the left field line to drive in three runs and give his team a 9-8 victory in an important district contest Wednesday at Bomber Field.

    Schleft’s game-winning hit, coming off a 3-1 count, brought Jordan Sandoval, Thomas Russell and Zeke Zumbro around.

  • Softball: LA holds on to top...

    A couple of big innings for the Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team proved to be enough to survive through a big Bernalillo Spartan inning late Wednesday.

    Los Alamos built up a 9-4 lead on the strength of a 4-run fifth inning Wednesday, but Bernalillo wouldn’t go away, scoring three times in the top of the sixth to make things plenty interesting.

    The Hilltoppers would prevail, however, pushing a run across in the bottom of the sixth and holding in the top of the seventh to take Wednesday’s contest 10-7.
