For the third season in a row, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys tennis team earned the team title at the Española Valley Invitational Tournament.
Erik Edelmann playing in No. 2 singles and both of Los Alamos’ doubles teams won their draws this weekend.
The Española Valley tournament was played in Santa Fe. A total of 14 teams, mostly from northern New Mexico, took part in the tournament.
“Everyone played well this weekend,” Hilltopper head coach Giri Raichur said. “I am impressed by the two doubles teams, who lost just 14 games in seven matches.”
The win was the Hilltoppers’ fourth tournament victory this season in as many outings, including winning the Taos Invitational a week earlier.
Los Alamos was the state Class AAAA runner-up in 2009, falling in the state championship final to Albuquerque Academy. Heading into this weekend’s Academy Invitational, the Hilltoppers have not lost to a Class AAAA program this season.
In the No. 2 singles draw, Edelmann had to hold on through a nip-and-tuck final against Cleveland’s Vanden Huevel. After Huevel won the second set in a tiebreaker, Edelmann prevailed in a long third set, 10-8.
