  • Boys soccer wins two; volleyball...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team bounced back from an opening round loss Thursday to win two straight contests at the Albuquerque Academy Invitational.

    Los Alamos finished fifth in the Academy tournament, which started Thursday and concluded Saturday. Los Alamos knocked off Farmington 4-0 in the consolation semifinals Friday, then topped Las Cruces 4-1 in the fifth-place game Saturday morning.

  • Girls soccer: LA wins two at...

    With the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team in a scoring funk, head coach Jiri Kubicek is hoping a couple of good solid offensive outings will help set things straight.

    Those came in the final two games of the weekend.

    Los Alamos scored a combined eight goals in Friday’s and Saturday’s contests en route to a fifth-place finish at the Albuquerque Academy Invitational.

  • Cross country: Boys finish 2nd...

    In the state of New Mexico or outside of it, one thing seems to be certain: Los Alamos and Albuquerque Academy are among the best around in boys cross country.

    As they did a week earlier at the heavily-attended University of New Mexico Invitational, Academy and Los Alamos went 1-2 at the Liberty Bell Invitational. That meet was held at Littleton, Colo., Friday.

    Los Alamos’ boys finished with 114 team points, second only to Academy’s 72. Both finished well ahead of third-place Regis’ (Colo.) 169 points.

  • Football: LA rolls to second win

    SANTA FE – It was another decisive win at the top end of the season for the Los Alamos Hilltopper football team.

    That’s not to say there isn’t plenty to work on, however.

    The Hilltoppers picked up their second big road win in as many chances Friday, thumping the Santa Fe Demons 50-27 at Ivan Head Stadium.

    But for the second straight outing, the Hilltoppers gave up a quick, early touchdown and struggled to convert point-after attempts following their own scores.

  • Cross country: Hawks win all...

    In its inaugural season opener Wednesday, the Los Alamos Middle School cross country teams won all four divisions.  

    The meet, held at Pecos Middle School, included 15 teams.

    Both the Hawk seventh grade girls and boys teams scored 67 points in their wins to take the program’s first race.

    The Hawk seventh-grade girls were led by Emily Pittman and Eliana Riciputi, who finished first and third overall.

    Gus Saeger, Keegan Bernstein and Mike Walker, who came in fifth, ninth and 10th places, led the seventh-grade boys.

  • Running: Wangler is tops on...

    Tom Wangler was a dual winner at Tuesday night’s pace race.

    Wangler was not only the fastest finisher on the 1-mile course but the best predictor on the course as well.

    Tuesday’s pace race was held on trails near Pajarito Acres in White Rock. The pace race is a weekly event put on by the Atomic City Roadrunners.

    Wangler missed his pre-race prediction by just 29 seconds, the best predictor on the short course, and finished the course in 14 minutes, 31 seconds.

    The top predictor of the night was Ted Williams, who raced on the 3-mile course Tuesday.

  • Girls soccer: Bulldawgs top LA...

    ALBUQUERQUE — For the second straight game, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team held an opponent scoreless through the duration.

    And for the second straight game, the Hilltoppers had nothing to show for it.

    Los Alamos blanked the Las Cruces Bulldawgs in their first round game of the Albuquerque Academy Invitational Thursday but couldn’t come up with a tally on the other end.

  • Boys soccer: LA falls to...

    ALBUQUERQUE — In the first round of the Albuquerque Academy Invitational, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team was blanked by the Mayfield Trojans.

    Mayfield scored twice in the first half Thursday and added another goal in the second half to top the Hilltoppers 3-0 in the tournament’s first round.

    Joshua Quintana, Trevor Gibbons and AJ Marquez all scored for the Class AAAAA Trojans in Thursday’s first round contest.

    The Trojans are currently ranked second in Class AAAAA. They advance in the championship bracket to take on Sandia Prep today.

  • All-road weekend for Hilltopper...

    Los Alamos’ teams are climbing the bus, or van, this weekend.

    The teams will be scattered everywhere from just down U.S. 285, as far south as Roswell and as far north as Denver.

    The Hilltopper cross country squads will be in Colorado for a tough race, volleyball heads to the Zia Classic, co-hosted by Roswell and Goddard High Schools, and both the boys and girls soccer teams will be in Albuquerque.

    Only the Hilltopper football team will have a short jaunt as it takes on week two opponent Santa Fe.
