    The Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team put 10 runs on the board in the second and third innings Wednesday to crush the visiting Capital Jaguars.

    Los Alamos pounded out 11 hits in Wednesday’s game at Overlook Park as it thumped Capital 14-2 in five innings of the District 2AAAA contest.

    The win kept the Hilltoppers undefeated in district play and kept them on pace with the district-leading Española Valley Sundevils, whom they face in a critical doubleheader this afternoon.

  • Baseball: Toppers trounce...

    After a bumpy start to the District 2AAAA season, the Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team may be getting on a roll.

    The Hilltoppers followed up a sweep of the Española Valley Sundevils Saturday by rolling over the Capital Jaguars at Bomber Field Wednesday, 12-2.

    Los Alamos closed out Wednesday’s home game in just five innings. Ryan Schleft’s first inning grand slam home run got the rout going, while starting pitcher Jon Thoma closed the contest out.

  • Toppers rout Tigers, 9-0

    With a big win over the Taos Tigers Tuesday, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys tennis team is in-line to pick up a top seed in the District 2 AAAA  tournament.

    Los Alamos closed out Taos early Tuesday in their dual at Urban Park, sweeping all six singles matches to win. A win this afternoon against the Española Valley Sundevils will lock up a top seed in the upcoming pre-District 2AAAA tournament if there is any remaining doubt as to which team might get it.

  • Girls tennis: Nothing decided in...

    Which is the dominant team in District 2AAAA girls tennis?

    That’s a question that wasn’t answered Tuesday.

    Both the visiting Taos Tigers and the homestanding Los Alamos Hilltoppers evenly split four matches Tuesday night in a dual between the two squads. The third match, the No. 2 doubles contest, was called by darkness Tuesday after the teams of Brenna O’Hara/Sarah Worland and Alex Cancro/Olivia Cancro evenly split their two sets.

  • Baseball: LA grabs two 2-4A...

    ESPAÑOLA — It takes two. Los Alamos’ baseball team, that is.

    Under cloudy, rainy skies Saturday, the Los Alamos Hilltoppers swept the Española Valley Sundevils in a critical District 2AAAA doubleheader. Los Alamos held on for a 6-5 victory in Saturday’s game one, then drubbed Española Valley 13-0 in five innings to take the nightcap.

    It was a pair of games the Hilltoppers needed after a disappointing loss Wednesday at Bernalillo to start 2AAAA play.

    Jason Reagor was really looking forward to the final event of Friday’s Los Alamos Quadrangular.

    “We were going to have the distance runners versus the sprinters,” said Reagor, a senior and one of the Los Alamos Hilltoppers’ top sprinters. “I was excited to watch, but that fell through.”

    When you’re hot, you’re hot.

    The 2009 season has been going like gangbusters for the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls track and field team and Friday’s home quadrangular was no exception.

    The Hilltoppers breezed to a win at Friday’s meet, held at Sullivan Field. Along the way, a long-standing school record toppled courtesy of Emi Weeks.

    The hefty victory by Los Alamos Friday came just four days after the team’s biggest win of the season so far — Monday’s Albuquerque Public Schools Invitational.

  • Running: Pedicini tops first...

    Colin Pedicini got off to a good start in the first pace race of 2009.

    The 2009 pace race season officially got underway Tuesday at Sullivan Field’s track.

    The pace race is a weekly event sponsored by Atomic City Roadrunners.

    Pace racers make predictions of their finish times and the winners are those who get closest to their actual finish time.

    Pedicini missed his predicted finish time by just one second Tuesday. He needed an excellent prediction to beat Michael Tierney, who was just four seconds off and Ted Romero who was eight seconds off.
