  • Boys basketball: LA routs Taos...

    Both the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team and the Taos Tigers wanted to start Saturday’s game well and both did. But only the Hilltoppers were able to sustain it.

    Los Alamos survived an initial push by Taos in a District 2AAAA game Saturday night. Spearheaded by Max Suazo, the Tigers held the lead several times throughout the first 4 minutes of Saturday’s ballgame.

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls swimming and diving teams earned big road wins Saturday.

    Taking part in the Farmington Invitational Saturday, the Hilltoppers dominated the rest of the field, including a historically solid Farmington Scorpions program.

  • Girls basketball: Toppers...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team survived a closer-than-expected contest Friday night at Taos.

    In the first game of the second leg of the District 2AAAA season, the Hilltoppers had to work hard in the fourth quarter to shake Taos’ Tigers. The Tigers cut the Hilltopper lead down to just one point in the third quarter. But a 20-point final quarter by the Hilltoppers gave them a 52-41 victory on the road.

    FARMINGTON (AP) — Sports enthusiast Alana Nichols was a senior at Farmington High School in 2000 when she broke her back in a snowboarding accident and lost the use of her legs.

    "I didn't think I'd be able to ski anymore," Nichols said.

  • Wrestling: LA hosting a solid...

    It’s considered standard practice to stack a home tournament to give the host team as good a shot as possible to win in front of the local crowd.

    Few will accuse the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team of doing that Saturday.

    Los Alamos will host the Bryan Sanchez Memorial Tournament Saturday. Wrestling starts at 9 a.m. in Los Alamos High School’s Auxiliary Gym.

    A very solid collection of teams will take part in Saturday’s tournament, which was named last season after a former standout Hilltopper wrestler.

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper hockey team improved to 8-4 on the season as it overwhelmed the winless St. Pius X Sartans in Albuquerque Sunday.  

    The win completed the season sweep of St. Pius by Los Alamos.  The Hilltoppers scored 10 goals on 34 shots while completely shutting down the Sartan offense to win 10-0.

    Los Alamos earned two hat tricks, two power-play goals, and short-handed score.

    The big win came although the Hilltoppers were missing five of their regular first- and second-liners.
