LAHS boys’ basketball earns first home win of the season

For the first time in more than a year, the Los Alamos High School boys’ basketball team won a game inside Griffith Gymnasium, defeating the Albuquerque Academy Chargers 55-48 Tuesday. 

The team’s last home win came on Jan. 12, 2018 against Artesia. Between then and Tuesday night, the Hilltoppers went 0-10 at home, losing the last six home games of last season and the first four this season. 

Facing a former district rival, the Hilltoppers came out with renewed energy against the Chargers, and appeared poised to take control. Junior forward Gavin Campos had an outstanding first quarter, driving hard to the basket for a pair of traditional three-point plays. 

He drew contact on both drives, knocked down the shots and hit his free throws. Campos had 8 points in the opening quarter. 

LAHS led 12-11 heading into the second quarter, and built on the lead before halftime. Senior guard David Owen knocked down a pair of three-pointers off assists from Campos, and junior guard Brian Irwin also knocked down an open three-pointer.
