Anaya will head Hilltopper program this spring

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

This weekend, softball will be foremost on the mind of Rogelio “Roger” Anaya.

It will certainly be so for the rest of the year, as well.

Anaya, who is currently managing the White Rock Little League 9-10 All-Stars, was named the new head of the Los Alamos High School softball program June 20. He was picked out of a pool of four candidates for the job.

When he officially assumes his duties Aug. 11, he will be replacing Randy Burditt, who headed the program since 2001. Burditt resigned in May, shortly after the end of the 2008 season in which his team advanced to the state Class AAAA softball tournament.

“I’ve been around the sport a long time, and I love having the opportunity to coach at Los Alamos High School,” Anaya said. “I played with Randy Burditt and I think he’s done an excellent job. He’s built a great foundation and now we’re going to build on that.”

When Anaya starts his new job — he’s already met with some of the players and the coaches — he will have a few items to deal with right off the bat.

In late May, the Los Alamos athletic department announced it had been fined by the New Mexico Activities Association for violation of off-season coaching rules. The rules centered around staff from the softball and baseball programs.
