    White Rock Junior All-Stars 12, Espaola Valley Junior All-Stars, 9(Game 1)

    Good hitting and star pitcher Monika Teter iced the win for the White Rock Junior All-Stars Saturday, despite a commendable fifth inning comeback by Espaola Valley.

    White Rock came out swinging, almost cycling through its entire batting line-up in just the first inning.

    The streak began with a textbook bunt by Aimee Gutierrez, and opened the doors for a 2 run double by Rachel Anaya and a run-scoring single to give White Rock an early 3-0 lead.

  • Men's ACI: Sanchez holds...

    Almost exactly 10 years to the day after his last win at the Atomic City Invitational, Lee Sanchez had one of his finest performances at the event.

    He would need it.

    Jason Norman came back from three holes down with six to play in the 27-hole final of the ACI to force sudden death Sunday.

  • Senior Men's ACI: Sanchez...

    Bruce Takala started off Saturday’s final match like gangbusters.

    Takala topped 2007 senior’s champion Eddie Sanchez on the eighth and ninth holes, where the pair started, to grab a 2-hole lead.

    But it wouldn’t stay that way for long.

    Sanchez scored back-to-back pars on the 10th and 11th holes and would eventually go up to stay, holding on for a 3 and 1 victory in Saturday’s Atomic City Invitational senior’s final.

  • Women's ACI: Anast takes...

    Sarah Anast was quick to give a shout out after her win Saturday.

    “Emily helped me a lot,” Anast said, talking about her caddy Emily Fortgang. “She kept my mind off golf. I didn’t have to think about it and about what I was doing. I know I can play, I just had to go out and do it.”

    Anast trailed big early to her opponent in the women’s Atomic City Invitational final, Anita Dunmar, but got on a roll to cut into that lead. Anast would hold on at the final hole to take a 1-up victory Saturday.

  • Men's ACI: Norman, Sanchez...

    A wily veteran and an up-and-comer will duke it out in today’s men’s final of the Atomic City Invitational.

    Jason Norman and Lee Sanchez advanced to the championship match of the championship flight with big wins Saturday.

    Norman, a former Los Alamos High School standout, continued an impressive run through the men’s title flight Saturday, knocking off Tim Johnson 3 and 2 in Saturday’s semifinal match at Los Alamos Golf Course.
