  • LA to make up games with...

    It’s a busy next few days for the Los Alamos Hiltopper boys basketball team.
    On the schedule for Los Alamos are three games in four days starting tonight.
    Los Alamos will take on the Capital Jaguars in Santa Fe in a District 2-5A contest. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Edward Ortiz Gymnasium.
    This will be the second meeting of the season for Los Alamos and Capital. Capital earned a convincing victory Jan. 20 in Griffith Gymnasium.
    Tonight’s game was supposed to be the first game of the latter half of the 2-5A season for the Hilltoppers (2-18 overall, 0-3 in district), but its game Jan. 31 against Bernalillo was postponed due to inclement weather.
    That game will be made up Monday night in Bernalillo.
    In between the two district games, Los Alamos will make up another game, that scheduled for Saturday afternoon, when it takes on St. Pius X. Saturday’s game will be at 1 p.m. at Griffith Gymnasium.

  • Hockey plays final home games

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper hockey team has a make-up game scheduled among its three games this weekend at home.
    The Hilltoppers were snowed out last weekend, but have rescheduled their game against the Cibola Cougars. That game will be played Sunday evening at the County Ice Rink.
    Along with that game, Los Alamos (11-7-1) will face the Permian Basin Pump Jacks (Odessa, Texas) at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and again at 7 a.m. Sunday.
    Those three games will be final games of the season on home ice for Los Alamos.
    The Hilltoppers hit a rough patch late in the season, struggling against some of the top teams in the state, but broke a 7-game winless streak last week, thumping La Cueva 7-1.
    Currently, Los Alamos is tied for second with Coronado, Texas, in the New Mexico Interscholastic Ice Hockey League standings. Both teams have 23 points on the season.
    In the top spot once again is Franklin, Texas. The Cougars have lost just once all year and have collected 32 points in 18 games.
    Cibola, which handed Los Alamos its first loss of the year in December, is led on the offensive end by Cam Chiasson, who has 28 goals and 10 assists in 18 games. The 28 goals scored tops the NMIIHL.

  • Isotopes' job fair is...

     

    The Albuquerque Isotopes will hold their annual job fair Saturday at Isotopes Park.
    The job fair will be from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. at Isotopes Park. It is for seasonal employment for the upcoming 2015 season.
    Candidates will be interviewed for several positions both with the Isotopes and with Ovations Food Services. Available positions include bat boys, grounds crew, Fun Zone attendant, catering servers and concessions workers.
    Employment applications are available online at abqisotopes.com.

  • UNM is knocked off by Air Force

    In a way, half the scoreboard was pretty much what Lobo Coach Craig Neal was looking for when he brought his University of New Mexico Lobo men’s basketball team to Colorado Springs to play the Air Force Falcons.
    The Lobos held Air Force to 53 points — on the Falcons’ home floor.  That’s pretty good.
    However, the 49 points the Lobos scored was not wanted and not expected in UNM’s Mountain West loss Wednesday night in Clune Arena.
    “We have to get out of this final 4-minute funk,” said Neal. “We became passive.”
    Wednesday night, the funk actually was longer. The Lobos did not score in the final 6 minutes and 40 seconds of the game.
    The Lobos typically will lock down on defense in the final run to the gun.  The Lobos typically will make some plays, make some drives, get some second-shot opportunities and get to the free-throw line.
    But that didn’t happen Wednesday night in Colorado Springs. It was the Falcons making those kinds of plays they needed to win.
    “You can’t have mental breakdowns,” said Neal. “We make two or three stops, but they get second chances and they bang down threes.”

  • 'Toppers survive tight road...

    ALBUQUERQUE — The Del Norte Knights girls basketball team came out swinging in the opening half of Wednesday night’s contest against the Los Alamos Hilltoppers.
    Del Norte attacked the key in the first half and got some big early buckets to keep the pressure on the Hilltoppers throughout the early part of the game.
    But Los Alamos recovered in the second half. Behind Ashlynn Trujillo, the Hilltoppers pulled away in the fourth quarter and won Wednesday’s big District 2-5A contest, 50-40.
    The Hilltoppers and the Knights were facing off for second place in the district standings, with both trying to keep pace with the Española Valley Sundevils. Both teams had already lost to the Sundevils in the first round of the 2-5A season, but both games were relatively close.
    Del Norte actually led 27-26 after the first half, taking advantage of Los Alamos’ struggles to keep them out of the paint. Del Norte’s guards, particularly reserve guard Malakah Martinez, were able to slash to the basket early.
    Martinez in particular proved tough to stop in the first half for Los Alamos. She had 8 of her team-high 11 points before the break.
