The Los Alamos Hilltoppers burst onto Sullivan Field Friday evening to play a district game against the Santa Fe Demons. The Demons have always been a tough opponent for the Toppers and Friday night’s game proved how tough the Demons can be. In the first two quarters the Toppers held their own by scoring a touchdown in each quarter and holding the Demons to only three touch downs with the half time score of 14-20. However, the Toppers could only manage two more touchdowns for the remainder of the game and the Demons ran the score up to 28-55 to win the contest. Photo by John McHale/ladailypost.com

I am concerned about the safety and welfare of our young athletes.
Particularly our Football players. I have attended the last two home games and was shocked by what I witnessed. The players were not given any chance of recovery as they were played over and over.
Several players experienced severe cramps that took them off the field only to be put right back in.
I saw several more players injured during the game, and a couple of those injuries I can say were the results of fatigue and the mistakes made due to fatigue.
Even past injuries, you could see that as the

In the early days, 1966, the ski swap was held in the building now used by Los Alamos Little Theatre and was very informal compared to today’s event. The ski swap is sponsored by the Los Alamos Ski Racing Team and proceeds go to help fund the Los Alamos Racing Club. Photo by John McHale/ladailypost.com
