  • Hilltoppers make one goal count...

    The final score doesn’t always reveal the essence of a contest. That was the case Tuesday as the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team came away with a 1-0 victory over district rival Santa Fe Capital High School.

    Despite the narrow point advantage, Hilltopper head coach Even Gartz said it was not as close as it sounded.

    “We dominated the game,” he said. “We put them back on their heels when we scored in the eighth minute.”

  • Girls take Capital team to...

    Shanna Riciputi had three goals to lead the Hilltopper girls soccer team in their first meeting with Capital High this year.

    An 8-0 lead at half time, took a lot of the suspense out of the game Tuesday.

    Lindsay Benage had two goals, including the 10th point of the match, taking the girls to a 10-0 victory.

    The other six points were scored by Kelsey Neal, Clare Charsley-Groffman, Amelia Neal Keanna Cohen and Feliz Pacheco.

    The team now stands 4-0 in district and 11-3 overall. They play second-place Taos Saturday.

  • LA’s Kirk gives nod to...

    Los Alamos High School’s celebrated big man, Alex Kirk, has decided to play his collegiate basketball close to home.

    Kirk, the 6-foot-11 star center for the Hilltoppers’ boys basketball team has verbally committed to the University of New Mexico, according to news reports today.

    Greg Remington of the UNM athletic division said this morning, “We can’t comment about that. The early signing period is a month away, Nov. 11-18. Only after he signs and our rules people have determined that it is valid, can we confirm that.”

    The Los Alamos boys and girls cross country clubs both scored their first team wins of the season at Saturday’s Santa Fe Indian School Invitational.

  • Los Alamos hosts Homecoming game...


  • Chargers spoil Hilltopper...

    Homecoming night wasn’t as festive as the Los Alamos Hilltopper football  team hoped it would be.

    The visiting Albuquerque Academy Chargers wasted no time jumping on the Hilltoppers Friday night at Sullivan Field. The Chargers led 14-0 after just one quarter and cruised to a 37-6 win.

    The loss in the 2009 Homecoming contest was the third-straight drubbing taken by Los Alamos, as it prepares for its District 2AAAA opener this week against Taos.

  • Point of View: A night in the...

    The Homecoming Football game and its accompanying events Friday began with a color guard provided by the Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps, displaying the American, New Mexican, Navy and Marine Corps flags. As spectators started to trickle in on this cold October night, they found the surrounding trees in high school spirit with vibrant green and gold leaves.

    We were lucky to have Gene Mortensen, “the voice of KRSN,” join us once again on this crisp night for the first time after heart surgery.

  • Boys batter Bernalillo

    The Hilltopper boys soccer team showed up in the second half with a vengeance.

    A solitary goal at 30 minutes off a corner kick by Davis Anson, assisted by Nicholas Castano, was all Los Alamos had to show for their early efforts.

    When it was all over Tuesday Los Alamos had a 5-0 district victory on the road over Bernalillo.

  • Hilltoppers blank Sue Cleveland

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team grabbed its second suite in as many days Thursday.

    The win was not only the sixth straight for LA (10-3) but the second 3-0 win in a row.

    Los Alamos topped Taos 3-0 Wednesday night in its district 2AAAA opener and has dropped just one of its last 10 games.

    Thursday’s match was the final nondistrict contest of the Hilltopper’s regular season.
