    LA boys thumped by Sandia

    In its final game before the start of District 2-4A play, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team took a shellacking against the Sandia Matadors.
    The Hilltoppers (1-15) fell to the Matadors 62-21 in Albuquerque Friday night.
    The Matadors (11-3) are the third-ranked team in the state in Class 5A.
    It was the most lopsided loss of the season for Los Alamos. Unfortunately, its task gets no easier with the star of District 2-4A play, when it hosts Bernalillo (10-6) Wednesday night.
    The Hilltoppers picked up their only win of the season so far Jan. 4 against Taos, but have lost four straight games by an average margin of more than 25 points.

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team earned a big win over the Class 5A Sandia Matadors at home Friday night.

  • LA is in third place in NMIIHL

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper ice hockey team is sitting in third place in the prep standings this week after dropping a pair of games to El Paso, Texas, Coronado.
    Los Alamos (8-4-1) has 17 points on the season, third-best total in the current New Mexico Interscholastic Ice Hockey League standings. It trails Coronado’s T-Birds and Cibola.
    The NMIIHL doesn’t have games scheduled for this weekend owing to the Martin Luther King Jr. Day holiday.
    Coronado (13-1) is atop the standings, but actually trails Cibola (13-1-2) by two points overall. Coronado’s two wins over Los Alamos in week 11. Coronado topped Los Alamos 5-2 in one game and 7-2 in the other.
    The Hilltoppers did beat the La Cueva Bears 3-2 during week 11.
    Individually, Hilltopper goaltender Zealand Walterscheid is statistically the No. 4 backstop in the league. Walterscheid, who has appeared in all 13 of Los Alamos’ games to date, sports a 2.41 goals-against average – third-best in the NMIIHL – and has made 132 total saves.
    Cibola continues to lead the league in scoring with 117 goals for. Zach Prigge (26 goals, 20 assists) leads four Cibola players in the top six among scorers this year.
    Cibola and Coronado are also tied for top defenses, having given up just 31 goals so far. Los Alamos has allowed 37 goals on the year.

  • LA routs Academy, nips Capital

    At the start of Los Alamos’ dual contest with the Capital Jaguars, it appeared the Hilltoppers were going to cruise to victory.
    Instead, the Hilltoppers had to sweat out a close finish against their District 2-4A rival.
    The Hilltopper wrestling team went 2-0 against the two full teams it faced and won one of three head-to-head contests against a handful of Española Valley wrestlers in their first home contest of the season Wednesday.
    Los Alamos prevailed big over the Albuquerque Academy Chargers, 50-18, at Auxiliary Gymnasium but needed every one of its five victories over the Jaguars, along with a pair of forfeit wins, to hold on for a 41-39 victory.
    The Hilltopper-Jaguar contest opened at the 152-pound weight class — the opening weight is determined by random draw — and Los Alamos’ Lane Saunders, Cory Geyer, Arnoldo Ortiz and Brian Geyer picked up impressive wins right off the bat. Saunders and Cory Geyer had first period pins for the Hilltoppers, while Brian Geyer bounced back from a slow start for a late second period pin and Ortiz won by technical fall over Capital’s Ryan Siccio.
