  • Boys soccer: LA shuts out...

    Looking at the final score, it would be tough to believe Friday’s boys soccer game was anybody’s contest until late in the second half.

    But the Los Alamos Hilltoppers broke open the game with two goals, one coming at the 67-minute mark and one at the 70-minute mark.

    Those goals made the sailing a lot smoother for the Hilltoppers as they topped the Goddard Rockets 3-0 in the opening round game of the Class AAAA state tournament Friday afternoon at Sullivan Field.

  • Volleyball: Toppers pick up win...

    Despite the best efforts of the Capital Jaguars, the Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team finished the regular season in style.

    Capital, with little to play for beyond trying to snap Los Alamos’ impressive win streak, kept pace throughout three games Saturday afternoon at Griffith Gymnasium. But Los Alamos would turn back Capital’s upset bid, holding on for a 3-0 victory in the teams’ regular season finale.

  • Football: LA picks up big win in...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper football team trounced the Española Valley Sundevils on the road Friday night, but that win wouldn’t be enough to keep the Hilltoppers’ district title hopes alive.

    Los Alamos scored 42 unanswered points the first half of Friday night’s game against the Sundevils and allowed only an opening possession Sundevils’ score in the second half to earn the District 2AAAA victory.

  • Volleyball: LA nabs district...

    ESPAÑOLA — While Los Alamos head volleyball coach Garry Maskaly had to work through some nervous energy Wednesday, his team had to work through a couple of slow game starts.

    But everything would work out fine for the Hilltoppers Wednesday night in their next-to-last regular season contest against Española Valley.

  • Soccer: District names Neal,...

    Both the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls soccer teams earned big honors by District 2AAAA this season.

    Los Alamos’ girls picked up eight first team All-District nods for the 2009 regular season and the Hilltopper boys matched that total.

    The All-2AAAA teams were announced Monday by district officials.

    Leading the way for Los Alamos’ boys team was Graham Delano, who was named the district’s Player of the Year for 2009. On the girls side, Los Alamos’ Kelsey Neal was also named the Player of the Year.

  • Soccer: LA girls are 2-seed in...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team thought it had made a strong case for a No. 1 seed, but didn’t know if the state seeding committee would see it that way.

    The Hilltopper boys soccer team suspected if it beat Capital decisively Saturday night it could crack the top four in the state tournament seeding, but might still finish as a five-seed.

    The more pessimistic view turned out to be the right one on both counts.

  • Girls cross country: Toppers...

    If the last two weeks of competition are any indication, the team that wants the Class AAAA state championship is going to have to earn it.

    The two front-running girls cross country squads in the state, Los Alamos and Albuquerque Academy, are just a hair’s breadth away from each other and the state title could come right down to the wire one way or the other.

    The Hilltoppers and Academy’s Chargers faced off for one final time in the 2009 regular season Friday, with the Chargers nipping the Hilltoppers at their home invitational.

  • Football: LA falls in critical...

    BERNALILLO — Fighting the good fight kept the Los Alamos Hilltoppers in Friday night’s game, but it wasn’t enough to keep the team in the thick of the district hunt.

    Los Alamos dropped a big contest Friday night against the Bernalillo Spartans. The Spartans scored on their opening drive and on a late second quarter drive, which was enough to give them a 14-0 victory.
