To wrap up a trying December, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team will head down to Roswell to compete in the Goddard Holiday Classic tournament.
The Hilltoppers will take on the Class AAA Tohatchi Cougars in the first round of the Goddard tournament, which starts Monday.
In the tournament, which continues through New Year’s Eve, Los Alamos will be one of five Class AAAA teams taking part. A pair of AAA teams — Las Vegas Robertson is the other — and Class AAAAA Carlsbad also accepted tournament invitations.
The Cougars (2-3) have been on the short end of a pair of ugly losses this season, but their two victories on the season were impressive wins over decent squads, Socorro and Silver.
Tohatchi doesn’t match up very well with Los Alamos in the height department — its tallest player, Jovanna Thomas, is listed at 5-foot-6 — but coming from the northeastern part of the state, speed and pressure is more of its game.
Los Alamos (4-5), for its part, split its two most recent outings, those coming Dec. 19 and 20 against two teams from District 1AAAA, centered in the Four Corners area.
