  • Girls track and field: Toppers...

    In its first home appearance of the season, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls track and field team gave the local fans something to cheer about.

    The Hilltoppers, one of the top teams in the state, regardless of classification, comfortably walked away with the team title at Saturday’s Los Alamos Quadrangular. The Hilltoppers, minus numerous key athletes owing to spring break, still breezed to 191.5 team points, easily outdistancing the runner-up Belen Eagles, who finished with 123.5 team points at the meet held at Sullivan Field.

  • Boys track and field: Toppers...

    With people going out of town, the spring break week is often a crapshoot around the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys track and field team.

    And while longtime Los Alamos head coach Larry Baca has come to terms with that after 26 years, this season’s spring break left him unamused.

    Baca said a dozen Hilltopper athletes were absent without leave this week, which was a big problem for his team.

  • Girls track and field: Ealey...

    The Los Alamos High School record in girls shot put was obliterated Saturday and the athlete who broke it could set a mark that will never be touched before she’s through.

    Chase Ealey’s first toss at Saturday’s Los Alamos Quadrangular sent the 22-year-old school mark in the shot put crumbling.

    Ealey’s throw of 43 feet, 7-1/2 inches was more than 2-1/2 feet better than the longstanding LAHS record of 40-11 set by Mara Beverwyk in 1988.

  • Softball: Toppers blast Tigers...

    The District 2AAAA season started off with a bang for the Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team.

    In their first offensive half-inning of the 2010 district season, the Hilltoppers marched 18 batters to the plate and scored 13 runs.

    Los Alamos went on to crush the Taos Tigers 18-3 to win their district opener at Overlook Park. The game was called after three innings of play.

    In the bottom of the first, Los Alamos sent 10 batters to the plate before Taos recorded an out and finished the innings with four hits, including two RBI hits by left fielder Shelby Courtright.

  • Baseball: Toppers open district...

    Despite a rough start to the season, the Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team can make up for it in District 2AAAA.

    It took the first step in the right direction Wednesday at Bomber Field, knocking off the Taos Tigers 13-6.

    Los Alamos scored eight runs in the second inning Wednesday and cruised to victory of the rest of the way. Meanwhile, pitcher Austin Aslin earned the victory on the hill, giving up three earned runs in four innings and striking out seven batters.

  • Track and field: Home meet...

    While Los Alamos’ track and field teams have an extra two days to prepare for their home meet, volunteers to help run the meet are still needed.

    Los Alamos will host a home meet Saturday at Sullivan Field. The meet was originally scheduled for today but was pushed back due to a dicey weather forecast.

    However, Los Alamos is still in need of volunteer help for Saturday. Anyone interested can contact the high school’s athletic office at 663-2531 or e-mail Hilltopper boys head coach Larry Baca at la.baca@laschools.net.

  • UPDATE: Ealey named to North-...

    Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball player Taylor Ealey was named to the 2010 North All-Star basketball team.

    Ealey, one of the main cogs in the recent success of the Hilltopper girls basketball program, will represent the North team in its game against the South All-Stars June 9.

    Ealey was the leading scorer and shot blocker for Los Alamos in the 2009-10 season
