  • Volleyball: Maskaly named new...

    Garry Maskaly won’t be changing districts. Just commutes.

  • Girls tennis: Toppers hold off...

    TAOS — Being the defending Class AAAA state champion means the members of the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls tennis team are walking around with red concentric circles on their backs this season.

    And the Taos Tigers had the Hilltoppers flush in their sights Saturday.

    The Tigers, Los Alamos’ biggest rival in District 2AAAA, gave the Hilltoppers everything they could handle Saturday at the Española Valley Quadrangular, played at the Quail Ridge Inn.

  • Boys tennis: LA gets by Taos on...

    TAOS — It wasn’t over until it was over. And then some.

    Kirk Webber and Johnathan Jones slugged it out until the bitter end to decide the outcome of Saturday’s match between the Los Alamos Hilltoppers and the Taos Tigers boys tennis teams.

    The two No. 4 singles split their two sets then went into a tiebreaker. But the tiebreaker would decide more than just the outcome of their match.

  • Girls golf: Toppers open spring...

    The course is a women’s par 73, 5,340-yard affair on the campus of New Mexico Tech.

    Monday’s tournament will be the first of five scheduled appearances by the Hilltoppers before the District 2AAAA tournament in early May.

  • Girls track and field: Toppers...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls track and field team did a little bit of shuffling with its personnel at Saturday’s Rio Rancho Chile Quad.

    And everything still turned out just fine.

    Los Alamos finished Saturday’s meet, hosted by the Class AAAAA Rams, in second place in the team standings. Los Alamos grabbed 173 points, just four points behind Rio Rancho, while Moriarty finished well behind the pace.

    Los Alamos will play Española Valley at approximately noon and Taos after the conclusion of that match.Friday's scheduled boys and girls tennis match with Farmington was canceled, as was the Los Alamos Junior Varsity Softball Tournament.

  • Tennis: LA, Farmington to meet...

    For this weekend, at least, Española Valley will be located at Taos’ Quail Ridge Inn.

    Los Alamos’ tennis teams will take part in the Española Valley Quadrangular this weekend which will be held in Taos. Competition starts at 3:30 p.m. Friday and continues through Saturday, although the schedule is dependent on the weather, the forecast of which is dicey.

  • Wrestling: LAMS coaches tout...

    The Los Alamos Middle School wrestling team wrapped up their season with a celebration to honor the effort put out by the team last month.

    Coaches Ben Salas and David Rendell said the 2008-09 season best one to date.

    “We were in five tournaments and placed first in four and second in one,” Salas said. “We’ve consistently been the top two or three school in northern New Mexico, usually behind Las Vegas Robertson and sometimes St. Mikes in Santa Fe, but not this year, we were on top of the pile the whole year.”
