Demons, 'Toppers favored in district

-A A +A
By The Staff

The District 2-4A boys and girls tennis tournaments get going Friday, and for the first time since the formation of the district, neither Hilltopper team will be the favorite going in.
Los Alamos’ boys and girls had to settle for the No. 2 seed in the tournament, which gets going Friday and continues through Saturday in Santa Fe. The Hilltopper teams both lost in the pre-district seeding tournament earlier this month to Santa Fe’s Demons.
While the Demon boys are the defending 2-4A champions, topping the Hilltoppers in the finals of last year’s district tournament, the Demon girls have emerged as a threat to loosen the Hilltopper girls’ 14-year grip on the tournament.
Last season, Los Alamos’ girls went on to win both the Class 4A team title and the girls doubles titles. However, most of the team’s top players, including the winning doubles combination of Gillian Hsieh-Ratliff and Madeline Margevicius.
But Santa Fe emerged this season as a major player in 2-4A — prior to this year, Los Alamos has rarely been seriously challenged in district play. Santa Fe’s girls unit is spearheaded by Brandee Fulgenzi, an eighth grader who is part of one of the most successful tennis families in New Mexico prep history.
