  • Cross country: LA boys, girls...

    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.

    Saturday’s race was held in and around the SFIS campus with 20 teams, mostly from the northern New Mexico area, in attendance.

  • 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.

    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.

  • Victorious Rockies
  • 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.
