The Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team picked up the No. 7 seed for the upcoming Class 4A playoffs, the New Mexico Activities Association announced today.

Los Alamos will take on the Centennial Hawks in the best-of-3 opening round starting Friday at Bomber Field.

Piedra Vista finished with the No. 1 overall seed in 4A baseball, followed by Goddard at No. 2.

In softball, the Hilltoppers earned the No. 12 seed.

Los Alamos will be at Valencia for the opening round either Friday or Saturday. The winner of that game will advance to the double-elimination second round starting next week.

Piedra Vista was also the No. 1 seed in softball this season. Aztec, Piedra Vista's rival in District 1, picked up the No. 2 seed.
