  • Hilltoppers blank Sue Cleveland

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

    Los Alamos topped Sue Cleveland High School, a brand new school located in Rio Rancho, by a 3-0 count at Griffith Gymanasium.

    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.

  • Football: Toppers throttled by...

    BELEN — While things got ugly Friday night, they didn’t get as ugly as they could’ve.

    Friday night, the Los Alamos Hilltopper football team took on the top-ranked team in the state and got a first-hand look at why it’s the top-ranked team. Los Alamos fell hard to the Belen Eagles on the road, 54-8.

    However, things weren’t quite as bad as they seemed.

  • Girls cross country: LA is...

    Now, with the toughest stretch of its regular season behind it, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls cross country team has learned a few things about itself.

    The Hilltoppers took part in the Albuquerque Academy Invitational Friday. The Academy Invitational, despite being a relatively small meet with just 13 teams invited, can be one of the most competitive of the season.

    Los Alamos placed fourth in Friday’s meet, garnering 132 team points. The host Academy Chargers won the meet with 63 points, outdistancing Rio Rancho, which finished second.

  • Boys cross country: LA boys take...

    A pair of top-10 finishes, including a big victory by star Kyle Pittman, propelled the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys cross country team to a big finish Friday at Albuquerque Academy.

    Pittman, who is running at least as well, if not better, than virtually every other runner in the state right now, outslugged Academy’s Neil Longenbaugh down the stretch to win Friday’s race at Academy. The two runners were almost in stride with each other at the race’s halfway point, but a strong push in the final mile gave Pittman the victory by more than seven seconds.

  • Hilltoppers roll to big win over...

    If the District 2AAAA opener is any indication, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team should be just fine in 2009.

    Los Alamos scored a pair of goals just four minutes apart to take control of its district opener in the first half. Los Alamos would cruise to a big 8-0 win Tuesday at Sullivan Field.

    The Hilltoppers made relatively easy work of the Taos Tigers, who could well be the second-best team in district this season, scoring four goals in each half despite rotating their bench  pretty liberally after assuming a 3-0 lead.

  • Volleyball: Toppers down...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team, it seems, has a flair for the dramatic.

    Less than a week after pulling out a thrilling come-from-behind victory over the St. Michael’s Horsemen, the Hilltoppers grabbed a big road win against Las Vegas Robertson Tuesday night in Las Vegas.

    Los Alamos went down 2-1 in the match, but bounced back to take the final two games of the contest, the same feat it pulled in the win over the Horsemen at home Sept. 16.

  • Girls soccer: LA gets blanked by...

    ALBUQUERQUE — The fatigue factor might have finally caught up with the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team.

    The Volcano Vista Hawks certainly caught up with and passed the Hilltoppers Wednesday.

    Los Alamos struggled from first whistle to last whistle Wednesday against Volcano Vista, an up-and-coming soccer program which is playing its second and final season in Class AAAA before it makes the leap to Class 5A next year.

    The Hawks were dominant on both ends of the field and ground out two second half goals to win 2-0.
