’Toppers blank Española Valley, earn 8-1 win against Tigers

By The Staff

The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls tennis team went 2-1 at this weekend’s Taos Quadrangular.
The two-day quadrangular was held Friday and Saturday. Los Alamos hosted Española Valley in the first match Friday at home, then faced off against Taos and Farmington in the other two rounds Saturday at the Quail Ridge Inn at Taos.
The Hilltoppers had little trouble with either Española Valley or Taos, picking up 17 wins in 18 contests. However, against two-timed defending state Class 4A champion Farmington, a team very well positioned to make another state title run in 2011, the Hilltoppers finished on the blank side of a 9-0 shutout.
Farmington’s Scorpions, led by the family trio of Tori, Hannah and Molly Merrion, along with a very solid No. 2 single McKenzie Pavlik, swept five of the six singles matches to roll to the big victory over Los Alamos. Only Hilltopper No. 2 Gillian Hsieh-Ratliff was able to force a third set against Pavlik.
Farmington topped Los Alamos in the finals of the 2009 state tournament, then knocked Los Alamos off in the semifinals of the 2010 tournament during impressive runs through the 4A brackets.
