  • UPDATE: Los Alamos results from...

    Normal 0 0 1 3

  • Herrera heads to final state...

    While two out of three ain’t bad, three out of three is considerably better.

    That was the feat that Los Alamos Hilltopper golfer Alicia Herrera pulled off during the spring 2010 season.

    Herrera, who will head to the Class AAAA state championship tournament next week with her team, had been away from the game of golf for almost nine months before the start of the spring golf season, but that didn’t slow her down very much.

  • Raichur/Whicker capture state...

    ALBUQUERQUE — It was a long time coming, but for Los Alamos’ top doubles team of Patrick Raichur and Matt Whicker, it couldn’t have been much better.

    The duo of Raichur and Whicker grabbed the first doubles title for the Hilltoppers’ program since 1989 Thursday at the Class AAAA state championship tournament.

    Raichur/Whicker downed Albuquerque Academy’s duo of Jordan Key/David Zumwalt in the final round Thursday afternoon. While the second set of the contest was somewhat of a struggle, Raichur/Whicker gutted the set out.

  • O’Hara/Worland grab...

    ALBUQUERQUE — With Brenna O’Hara stomping off the court in disgust following she and her partner Sarah Worland’s loss in the Class AAAA semifinal, it would’ve been hard to imagine a few hours later the team would bounce back for a big end to their season.

    O’Hara and Worland, a pair of seniors on the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls tennis team, did just that, however, knocking off Ksenia Bosina/Alice Linder of Albuquerque Academy to grab third place at the AAAA doubles championship tournament Thursday afternoon at the Jerry Cline Tennis Complex.

  • Running: Rees, Thorn have best...

    Ben Rees and Karen Thorn were the top predictors in this week’s pace race.

    The pace race, a weekly event sponsored by the Atomic City Roadrunners, was held Tuesday. That race, which featured a staggered start with those predicting slower times began before those with faster predicted times, was run along the bike paths near Piñon Park in White Rock.

    Rees, who actually predicted the fastest finishing time on the 1-mile course, was off by just five seconds, tying him with Thorn, who ran the 3-mile course.

  • UPDATE: Beasley, Buddle and...

    BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) — The phones started ringing at 2 a.m., and players were told to come down to the third floor for a meeting. As Herculez Gomez pressed the elevator button on 17, his mind raced.

    Were his dreams about to be fulfilled — or crushed?

    This is the way the U.S. World Cup team was finalized, in the dead of night in a Hartford hotel.

    "It's been such a crazy and unbelievable journey," Gomez said.

    And the big trip hasn't even begun.

  • Update: Super Bowl going into...

    IRVING, Texas (AP) — Check the antifreeze, grab the mittens, make sure the airport's not snowed in.

    We're going to the Super Bowl.

    In New Jersey. In February!

    NFL owners voted Tuesday to put the 2014 Super Bowl in the new $1.6 billion Meadowlands Stadium that this season will become home to the New York Jets and Giants. It's the first time the league has gone to a cold weather site that doesn't have a dome and, until now, those places couldn't even bid on the big game.
