  • Boys tennis: Hilltoppers shut...

    If there had been any doubt as to the ultimate outcome of this season’s District 2AAAA boys tennis competition, Tuesday probably squelched that doubt for good.

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys tennis team crushed the Taos Tigers at home, sweeping all nine matches the team played and not losing a single set in the process.

    Los Alamos gave up just six games in Nos. 1-4 singles Tuesday and just four games in the three doubles contests to come away with a big 9-0 victory.

  • Girls tennis: LA tops Taos in...

    More years than not, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls tennis team is wary of its District 2AAAA counterparts from Taos. Usually with good reason.

    That was again apparent with the two teams’ dual meet Tuesday.

    The Hilltoppers came away with a 5-4 victory Tuesday at home, but the Tigers aren’t ready to concede anything to the Hilltoppers as the District 2AAAA tournament inches closer.

  • Golf: LA teams finish fourth at...

    Despite high winds at Monday’s tournament, Alicia Herrera still inched closer to qualifying for the girls Class AAAA state golf championship.

    Both the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls teams played Monday at the Kirtland Central Invitational in Farmington. The tournament was played at the Riverview Golf Course.

    Wind conditions made for tough play Monday, with sustained winds blowing 40 miles per hour combined with plenty of gusts.

  • Track and field: LA earns four...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls track and field teams picked up three first-place finishes in Monday’s Marilyn Sepulveda Meet of Champions, while a top Hilltopper distance runner was also a winner.

    Holly Walker, Alex Nichols and Chase Ealey were all winners at Monday’s girls meet, held at the University of New Mexico Track and Field Complex in Albuquerque.

    On the boys side, Hilltopper Kyle Pittman was also a big winner, taking top honors in the boys 1,600 meters.

  • Baseball: LA sweeps in big 2AAAA...

    After a big come-from-behind win in game one, the Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team didn’t want to slow its momentum heading into game two.

    Scoring seven runs in the home half of the first inning would keep that momentum going just fine.

    After a tight, contentious opener against the Española Valley Sundevils Saturday, Los Alamos thumped the Sundevils in the nightcap at Bomber Field. Los Alamos took the first game 11-10, then blasted the Sundevils in game two, 15-2.

  • Softball: LA earns district...

    If the Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team wanted to keep things interesting throughout both games of Saturday’s doubleheader, it accomplished that task.

    Hosting a crucial District 2AAAA twinbill Saturday, Los Alamos had to come from behind in both contests against the Española Valley Sundevils. But when it needed to, it came through with some huge offensive innings.

  • Girls track and field: LA...

    As has been the case for much of the season so far, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls track and field team earned an impressive victory Saturday.

    Los Alamos won a whopping 12 events as it took the team title going away at Saturday’s Capital City Invitational. Los Alamos finished with 209 team points, a better total than the next four schools in the final team standings combined.

  • Golf: Third round begins at...

    AUGUSTA, Ga. — Finding himself in a familiar position heading to the weekend at Augusta National, Tiger Woods flashed a smile that oozed with confidence.

    The kind of smile that harkens back to the days of Jack Nicklaus and what they used to say about him:

    He knows he's going to beat you — and he knows that you know he's going to beat you.

  • Basketball: Cops, firefighters...

    Members of the Los Alamos Fire Department and Los Alamos Police Department will square off in a charity basketball game Saturday night.

    “The Battle of the Badges” is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Saturday at Griffith Gymnasium. Approximately a dozen representatives from each public safety department will take part in the game and several more will be running the concession stand and volunteering in other capacities at the event.

    Admission is $5 per person. Kids 10 and under will be admitted free of charge.
