  • Girls basketball: LA comes back...

    Exactly when it needed to, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team put together one of its finest quarters of the 2009-2010 season.

    Los Alamos came up big on both ends of the floor, executing perhaps its best 8 minutes of motion offense and all but shutting down the main scoring threat of its opponent, Española Valley, to earn its biggest win of the regular season.

    The Hilltoppers grabbed a share of the District 2AAAA lead with their win Tuesday night, dropping the district-leading Sundevils 52-48, chiefly on the strength of that fourth quarter.

  • UPDATE: Hoops tourney schedule...

    Los Alamos High School announced that, due to Monday’s heavy snows in northern New Mexico, the District 2AAAA basketball tournaments have been pushed back.

    The 2AAAA games, including Monday’s first-place playoff girls basketball game, have been pushed back to Tuesday.

    The Hilltopper girls basketball team was scheduled to play Española Valley in a one-game playoff for the regular season district championship Monday, but that game has been rescheduled for Tuesday. It will be played at 5 p.m. at Capital High School.

  • Swimming and diving: Topper...

    ALBUQUERQUE — A very good point total for the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls swim team wasn’t quite good enough Saturday.

    Los Alamos finished with 268 points at the 2009-10 state swimming championship meet Saturday, a solid score but not enough to overcome the top swimming program in state history.

  • Wrestling: Toppers struggle at...

    RIO RANCHO — After a lean first round Friday, much of the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team was able to make up for it in the second round.

    Los Alamos took six wrestlers to the Class AAAA state championship tournament — seven Hilltoppers qualified to take part but heavyweight Taylor Morrison was a last-minute scratch – held at the Santa Ana Star Center this weekend. Los Alamos didn’t get anyone through to Saturday, however, with all five remaining wrestlers heading into Friday’s final round being eliminated.
