´Topper boys, girls head to tourneys

-A A +A

Members of the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls basketball teams will have to unwrap their presents and gobble down their Christmas meals post-haste to make it to games.
Los Alamos’ teams will travel to Roswell to take part in a pair of tournaments. The Hilltopper girls will take part in the Goddard Holiday Classic which begins Wednesday, while Los Alamos’ boys will be in the Poe Corn Invitational, also in Roswell, starting Thursday.
For Los Alamos’ girls, they will face Portales in the first round of the Goddard tournament.
Portales has been solid early in the season, posting a 6-2 record and just getting nipped in the second round of the Moriarty Invitational by the Class 5A Las Cruces Bulldogs, 46-45, Dec. 14.
The winner of Wednesday’s game will face the winner between Goddard and Capital.
Thursday is the start of the long-running Poe Corn Invitational tournament. This tournament, which has been around since the 1950s, has in recent years tried to become a more Class 4A-centered tournament.
This year, it’s just that. All eight participants are Class 4A schools.
Roswell’s Coyotes, who host the tournament, are the top-ranked team in the state heading into this week.
