Girls basketball: Toppers upend Sartans Friday night

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

ALBUQUERQUE — While “must-win” might have been too strong of a moniker, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team knew Friday night’s contest was a “probably should win.”
And the team responded.
Facing a tough challenger on the road, Los Alamos earned a big victory over the St. Pius X Sartans.
It was the second of three tough games the Hilltoppers played this week. They lost Tuesday to Class 5A Volcano Vista on the road, then lost to a very good Class 5A team in Sandia Saturday night, 52-33 at home.
Friday night, Hilltoppers survived an ugly first half to grab a big victory over one of their key Class 4A rivals. Spearheaded by a huge second half from post player Erin Kirk, the Hilltoppers broke open a tight ballgame early in the fourth quarter to win going away, 49-37.
Not only were the Hilltoppers able to pick up a victory in St. Sebastian Gymnasium, one of the most difficult places in the state to play, they were able to adjust to the aggressive Sartan pressure and make key baskets despite struggling early in the contest.
