To say that the 2011 District 2AAAA baseball title race is up for grabs is something of an understatement.
That race officially got underway today with a pair of games. One of those games featured the Los Alamos Hilltoppers and the Bernalillo Spartans, who locked horns at Bernalillo.
Los Alamos will be looking to overcome a rough nondistrict schedule, in which it went 3-9. Despite its subpar won-loss record, however, Los Alamos has started to show signs of life, earning two wins in its last four outings and staying competitive with its last five opponents.
The Hilltoppers were nipped on the road at Moriarty Saturday, falling 4-3, five days after holding on to beat Santa Fe Indian School 12-8 in Santa Fe.
For Los Alamos, the big question will be if it can continue playing more consistent ball, which it struggled to do earlier this year.
The Hilltoppers won the 2010 district title, dropping just one district contest to top the Bernalillo Spartans by a full game in the district standings — the only games Los Alamos and Bernalillo lost during district play last year were to each other.
Bernalillo has been among the toughest teams in the district since joining it in 2006. Bernalillo won two consecutive 2AAAA titles in 2007 and 2008 before Los Alamos snapped its streak in 2009.
