    With the Los Alamos Hilltopper cross country teams heading into the final stretch of their season, they are starting to put up the numbers they’re looking for to make a postseason push.

    Saturday, Los Alamos traveled to the Rio Rancho Jamboree, one of the largest regular season meets in the state, and grabbed two big finishes in the big school races.

    The Hilltopper boys finished third overall in the team standings, behind only the Albuquerque Academy Chargers and the Sandia Matadors, two very good Albuquerque-area programs.

  • Girls soccer: LA earns 2AAAA...

    There wasn’t a lot of celebration following Saturday afternoon’s girls soccer game, despite the Hilltoppers’ clinching their fourth-straight district championship.

    Los Alamos is well aware that there are bigger fish to fry.

    Saturday at Sullivan Field, Los Alamos scored four goals in the second half to break open the District 2AAAA contest against the visiting Bernalillo Spartans. Shaina Riciputi scored twice in the second half as the Hilltoppers dominated the Spartans, winning 6-0.

  • Volleyball: LA drops Taos in...

    Things are going so well for the Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team right now, about the only thing it has to fear is a letdown.

    But after getting up on the Taos Tigers early, the Hilltoppers didn’t have to worry about a letdown Saturday afternoon.

    The Hilltoppers continued their remarkable run Saturday, downing the Tigers in straight games at Griffith Gymnasium. The Hilltoppers were simply too much for the overmatched Tigers as they rolled to a 25-9, 25-8, 25-10 victory in District 2AAAA play.

  • Boys soccer: ’Toppers...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team kept up its winning ways in District 2AAAA Saturday by blanking the visiting Bernalillo Spartans.

    After an up-and-down first half Saturday, Los Alamos settled into its game, scoring seven times in the second half to rough up Bernalillo 8-0 at Sullivan Field.

    “We got off to a slow start, but then we started passing the way we like to,” Hilltopper head coach Evan Gartz said. “We ripped them apart.”

  • Football: Toppers get blanked by...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper football team couldn’t keep up with the Farmington Scorpions in a nondistrict game Friday night in the Four Corners area.

    The suddenly-resurgent Scorpions rolled up seven touchdowns in the first half and cruised to a 35-0 victory Friday night over the visiting Hilltoppers.

    Farmington, which has been up and down the dial during the 2009 regular season, is playing as well as just about any team in Class AAAA right now.
