Basketball: LA teams head to tough tourney at Academy

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

Both the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls basketball teams will be facing stiff competition this week when they travel to one of the premier tournaments in the state.
The teams will take part in the Joe Armijo Invitational, which starts Thursday and continues through Saturday at Albuquerque Academy.
The Armijo Invitational over the last several seasons has drawn some of the top teams from across the state. This season, a couple of solid out-of-state teams will also take part, including Denver Mullen, a private school in Colorado with a reputation as one of the top programs in the Denver metro area.
In the first round of the Armijo Invite boys bracket, Mullen will take on one of the premier programs in New Mexico and the arch-rival of the Hilltoppers, the Española Valley Sundevils.
Meanwhile, in Thursday’s first round, the Hilltopper boys will take on the Class 5A Highland Hornets. The Hilltopper girls will square off against Volcano Vista, a former Class 4A foe which made the jump into the 5A ranks this season.
