  • Girls basketball: Toppers thump...

    Even bringing in a whole new school couldn’t change Lisa Villareal’s luck inside Griffith Gymnasium.

    Villareal, the head coach of the Volcano Vista Hawks and formerly the head coach of the Española Valley Sundevils, has seen her teams struggle far more often than not in their visits to Griffith Gymnasium. Tuesday night was no exception.

  • Boys basketball: LA’s...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team was slow getting out of the gate Tuesday at Volcano Vista.

    Following its five-day layoff, Los Alamos managed just six points in the first quarter of Tuesday’s game against Volcano Vista’s Hawks. While Los Alamos was able to tie the score and even grab a late lead, the Hawks hit some big shots in the latter part of the fourth quarter to take a 56-49 victory.

  • Health and fitness: New year is...

    The resolution season is upon us and many are deciding to make this the year they lose those extra pounds.

    Whether it’s a couple pounds or many, the key to successful weight loss is to do it the right way.

    I see people everyday who are achieving their goals and shedding those excess pounds by eating right and exercising. This is the right way to lose weight. Crash diets, trendy weight-loss methods and expensive supplements might provide some temporary success on the scale. But, invariably, they will fail and leave you right back the way you started, if not worse.

  • 2009 Year in Review: Toppers...

    It was a wild year on the court, on the gridiron, on the pitch and on the trail, to say the least.

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper teams, which often show a flair for the dramatic, didn’t disappoint in 2009, going down to the wire with opponents in big games time after time.
