The door looks pretty wide open heading into the 2009 District 2AAAA baseball season.
And going into today’s 2AAAA opener against Taos, the Los Alamos Hilltoppers are hoping to be the ones that walk through.
Only four wins separate four of the five schools in 2AAAA heading into the district’s opening day today. The Capital Jaguars, the fifth team, are being shut out in the win column in 2009.
Today’s game at Taos is scheduled for 4 p.m.
Taos is one of two schools in the district that is currently posting a winning record (7-6). Heading into today’s opener, Taos has won three of its last four contests to break the .500 mark.
In their last contest, however, the Tigers were dropped by the Pojoaque Elks, 6-5 at Pojoaque. The Hilltoppers made quick work of the Elks in their last game, blasting them in five innings 12-2 at Bomber Field March 24.
At this point, however, records and results don’t mean a whole lot to Hilltopper manager Mike Gill, who is quick to point out most of the teams in the district had basketball players playing well into March. Because of that, many teams are probably just now getting up to speed.
The win over Pojoaque was Los Alamos’ second in a row and the second game in which it pushed double-digit runs across the plate.
