  • 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.

  • Boys basketball: LA tops Capital...

    It took more than a full game of basketball and nothing has yet been determined, including the status of a star player.

    The Los Alamos Hilltoppers posted an improbable comeback at home Saturday night against the Capital Jaguars in a big boys District 2AAAA basketball game. With just 6.2 seconds remaining, Hilltopper center Alex Kirk drilled three straight free throws to tie the contest and force overtime.

    In overtime, Los Alamos outscored Capital 8-4 to win 62-58.

  • Girls basketball: LA tops...

    Eight games wasn’t enough to decide the regular season district champ, so the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team and its counterpart from Española Valley will play a ninth.

    Los Alamos held up its end of the bargain in forcing a 1-game playoff Friday night against Española Valley’s Sundevils with its victory over the Capital Jaguars.

    The Jaguars gave the Hilltoppers problems throughout Friday night’s first half, but the Hilltoppers made good adjustments during the break and started to pull away in the third quarter.

  • Several Atomic Tumblers come up...

    Los Alamos School of Gymnastics played host to four other teams at the Atomic City Tumblers’ Snowflake Invitational

    Jan. 30.

    Besides Los Alamos, Gold Cup and G-Force of Albuquerque, Zia of Santa Fe and Taos Gymnastics were all represented.

    Los Alamos’ high scorer of the day was Annika Bronkhorst, who won the level 7 competition with a 35.925.

    Bronkhorst placed first on vault (9.325), balance beam (8.60) and floor exercises (9.25) and second on uneven parallel bars (8.75) to win the competition.
