´Toppers pick up big sweep Saturday

Softball: Teter picks up both victories, Zerr has big hit in game one

By Mike Cote

BERNALILLO — Heading into game one of Saturday’s doubleheader, the pressure was squarely on the shoulders of the Los Alamos Hilltoppers.
Following Saturday’s action, however, the pressure is on the rest of District 2-4A to catch them.
The Hilltopper softball team earned two huge victories Saturday in Bernalillo, knocking off the Bernalillo Spartans, who had to be going into Saturday the district favorites. Instead, the Hilltoppers earned a wild 8-5 victory in the opener and picked up a 6-0 shutout in the second game.
Los Alamos’ Monika Teter pitched and won both ends of the doubleheader, going the distance in both outings against one of the top offensive clubs in 4A. The Spartans had come in averaging nearly 14 runs per game and had lost just once on the season to a very good Class 5A team in Rio Rancho.
Things looked a bit hairy for Los Alamos midway through the first ballgame with Bernalillo going up 2-0 after four innings and hitting the ball very hard off Teter in the fourth.
Los Alamos scraped together a run in the top of the fifth but Bernalillo looked to be cooking something up in the bottom of the fifth before a big putout at the plate changed the entire complexion of the game and carry Los Alamos into game two.
