Girls basketball: Toppers clinch 2AAAA, trip to postseason

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

Even with the regular season District 2AAAA title now officially in the bag, don’t expect the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls varsity basketball team to have much down time.Los Alamos clinched the 2AAAA regular season crown, a ticket to the District 2AAAA championship game, which will be played at Griffith Gymnasium, and most importantly, a slot in the Class AAAA state tournament with a 47-26 rout of Española Valley Wednesday.There’s still plenty of basketball yet to be played, however, and the Hilltoppers don’t want to go flat in the final regular season contests or take any chances on raising eyebrows of the AAAA seeding committee.“We’re not going to back off, period,” Los Alamos head coach Gerry Washburn said after Wednesday’s win. “I learned a long time ago you can’t do that. We’ll stay pretty much with our normal practice routine through the state tournament.”Los Alamos’ domination of its 2AAAA opponents continued Wednesday against one of only two teams going into the night that was still mathematically alive in the district race.The Sundevils, which gave the Hilltoppers a tougher-than-expected time in Española Jan. 25, were simply no match in round two at Griffith Gym.
