Atomic City Update: A look back at this year’s top moments

-A A +A
By Phil Scherer

As I sat down this week to think about the greatest moments in Los Alamos sports so far this school year, I was amazed to realize how much success this community has been able to celebrate.

This is my third time doing one of these columns, and never before have I had so many tough decisions to make. Every fall sports team had outstanding moments and accomplishments, and narrowing the list down to five moments was no easy task.

Both soccer teams, both cross country teams and the volleyball team advanced to compete for state championships, and the football team provided fans with lots of memorable moments. As 2018 comes to a close, I would like to celebrate the good moments and acknowledge the tough endings. Every one of these teams has something to be proud of and it is always fun to take a look back.

I just hope the rest of the school year is filled with as many memorable moments as the first half was. If it is, this community is in for a real treat.
