  • Hilltoppers fall at Farmington 28-0

    Los Alamos coach Garrett Williams was anxious to see how his Hilltoppers would fare on the big stage.

    The Toppers, fresh off a big win against in Pojoaque in their season opener, hit the road to take on Farmington, which also opened with a mercy-rule win against Gallup.

    It would be a good test for Los Alamos. 

    As it turned out, the Toppers have some work to do. Farmington’s defense shut down Los Alamos and Essiel Carrasco scored on two long touchdown runs en route to a 28-0 victory Friday night.

  • Hilltoppers football team hits the road

    Garrett Williams thinks the Los Alamos High School football team can be a force to be reckoned with in the state.

    The Hilltoppers opened their season last week with a resounding 55-14 win against Pojoaque.

    It was a game of retribution for the Toppers, who were scorched in Pojoaque the previous week.

    “We played with confdence and intensity and we did a great job on both sides of the football,” Williams said this morning. “I was extremely pleased with the way we executed.”

    A tough task, however, awaits Williams and the Hilltoppers tonight.

    Los Alamos will travel to face Class 4A power Farmington. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. and the game can be heard on KRSN-AM 1490.

  • LA soccer teams to host St. Pius X

    It promises to be a big weekend of sports for Los Alamos High School.

    Headlining the weekend will be a couple of soccer games as perennial power St. Pius X comes to town.

    The girls game is at 4 p.m. and the boys follow at 6 p.m. at Sullivan Field.

    The Los Alamos girls team comes into the game with a 3-0 record after drilling Moriarty 10-0. In three games, the LA girls have scored 19 goals.

    The boys are coming off just their second Cernicek tournament championship since 2004. In the title game against Farmington last week, the Hilltoppers came away with a 2-1 victory.

    “We have great spots of passing,” Hilltopper coach Evan Gartz said after Saturday’s game. “We need to make those turn into more minutes of great passing. If we improve that, we’ll be special.”

    The Los Alamos volleyball team also is back in action as it takes part in the Moriarty tournament. The Lady Toppers lost a tough four-set match to St. Pius X on Tuesday.

    St. Pius X came back on Thursday to end Pojoaque’s 37-game win streak.

    And Pojoaque will make a visit to Los Alamos on Tuesday.

    Why are Orthodox so serious when it comes to church? — JA


    This is a great question. 

    One reason is found in the fact that church is about God alone. We are serious about church because we are serious about God. 

    We believe God is the holy one because he is the omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient one who “first loved us.” 1 Jn 4:19. 

    A second reason lies in a mystery: God became fathomable and finite as Jesus Christ. God is serious business because love is serious business.
