Boys soccer: LA likes its chances in AAAA

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

To say that the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team is looking forward to the 2009 season would be something of an understatement.

Following a big season in 2008, the Hilltoppers like their chances to make a push to a state title in 2009. They feel good about this season despite some key losses to graduation after last season.

“I’m excited,” Los Alamos head coach Evan Gartz said. “I’ve known we’d improve. Every year we get better and better. This year is no exception.”

Los Alamos’ 2009 season opens up, as it usually does, at the Louie Cernicek Invitational tournament. The tournament gets underway Friday and continues through Saturday.

The Hilltoppers will take on the Clovis Wildcats in the opening round of the tournament, a team they know little about heading in.

The 2009 Louie Cernicek tournament, now in its 13th season, is very similar to the 2008 version. Along with Clovis, teams from the Roswell and Farmington area, as well as Rio Rancho and Moriarty will take part.

The Los Alamos-Clovis first round game is scheduled for 10 a.m. Friday morning at Sullivan Field. The championship game will be held at Sullivan Field at 4:30 p.m. Saturday.
