The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys tennis team edged Lovington’s Wildcats to win the Carlsbad Invitational this weekend.
Los Alamos finished with 22 team points while Lovington earned 17 team points at the tournament.
The Carlsbad tournament was scheduled for two days, but Friday’s singles tournament was rained out. Saturday’s doubles tournament went on as scheduled, however.
In the doubles bracket, No. 2 doubles team Stephen Townsley/Chase Havemann won three matches, including knocking off Lovington’s Cade Lawson/Jacey Kidd in the three-set final.
That final contest win by Townsley/Havemann helped seal the victory for the Hilltoppers, who also won the tournament in 2008.
After taking a solid 6-1 victory in the first set, Townsley/Havemann dropped the second set 5-7, then had to hold on through a close final set tiebreaker to win 11-9.
Los Alamos’ doubles team of Ben Havemann/Dominic Lucido also took top honors in the No. 3 bracket. Ben Havemann/Lucido also had to survive a three-set final against a team from Andrews, Texas, but got the nod 6-0, 3-6, 6-1.
At No. 1 doubles, Patrick Raichur/Matt Whicker bounced back from an opening round loss to win the consolation side of its bracket with a three-set victory over Andress’ top doubles squad.
