SANTA FE — This year, it could well be the talent and experience of the Farmington Scorpions against the depth of the Los Alamos Hilltoppers that determines the Class 4A girls tennis championship.
The Hilltoppers, who are about to go into the meat of their season, picked up a big early season win over the Cleveland Storm Saturday at Capital High School. The Hilltoppers dropped just one set over nine matches to pull off a sweep over the Class 5A Storm.
Los Alamos, which was without two of its top players Saturday, had a dominant performance Saturday.
Junior Madeline Margevicius, in the No. 1 singles slot, No. 2 Susanna Lucido and sophomore Jing Xie, at No. 5 singles, picked up wins while dropping just two games in their matches.
This season, Los Alamos is returning all of its top six from 2011 and added Margevicius, who sparkled as an eighth grader for the Hilltoppers but was gone for two seasons.
Hilltopper veteran head coach Bruce Cottrell said it will still be an uphill climb to dethrone the Scorpions, who have won three straight state titles but aren’t quite the juggernaut this year that they have been during their impressive championship run.
