Opening day of the District 2AAAA girls basketball season is here, snow or no snow.
Tonight, weather permitting, the Los Alamos Hilltoppers will open their district season at home against the Taos Tigers. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. — no announcement had been made as to a possible weather postponement as of press time.
Los Alamos (10-6) could hardly be heading into the 2AAAA season with more confidence, having won six straight and eight of its last 10.
This season’s district crown, however, will have to be wrenched from the fists of the Española Valley Sundevils, who aren’t going to give it up easily.
In 2008-09, Española Valley picked up both the 2AAAA regular season title and tournament championships. Española Valley tripped up Los Alamos 45-35 in the district tournament championship game last season, the first time in three years Los Alamos had not claimed the title.
While Los Alamos did get into the state tournament as an at-large team, it was thumped in the first round of the state playoffs by Kirtland Central.
