A pair of Los Alamos Hilltopper basketball players were named to the 4A/5A North All-Star team for the 2011-12 season.
Hilltopper Monika Teter was selected to join the girls big-school All-Star Game, while Nick Baker was picked for the North All-Star boys team.
The team announcements were made Monday by the New Mexico High School Coaches Association, which organizes the All-Star events.
The boys 4A/5A All-Star game is scheduled for Aug. 2 at La Cueva High School in Albuquerque, an unusually late scheduling — most years, All-Star series events are wrapped up in July — while the girls 4A/5A game is set for June 8 at Rio Rancho.
None of the four coaches involved in the 4A/5A games have been announced.
To be eligible to participate in All-Star contests, players must be graduating seniors.
Teter, a 5-foot-10 center for Los Alamos, helped the Hilltoppers to a playoff berth this season. Teter is the second Hilltopper named to the All-Star team in the last three years — Taylor Ealey picked up the All-Star honor following the 2009-10 season.
Baker, one of the top defensive players in 4A last year, also led the Hilltoppers to a playoff berth following their third-place finish in District 2-4A.
The last Hilltopper to be named to the boys basketball All-Star team was Alex Kirk, also in the 2009-10 season.
