This weekend, Santa Fe was a home away from home for the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls tennis team.
Los Alamos held its Melt the Snow Invitational this weekend. The tournament was played at Santa Fe and Capital high schools. Los Alamos played three teams in duals this weekend, going 1-2 in those three duals.
It has been a slow start to the season for the Hilltoppers, who have barely been able to practice in Los Alamos due to the court conditions — hence the name of the tournament.
More important than anything for Hilltopper head coach Bruce Cottrell this weekend was to get some swings in.
“At least all of our players got to play a little,” Cottrell said. “We’re still in a position where our courts aren’t clear of snow.”
While Santa Fe, Capital, St. Michael’s and Clovis were all scheduled to appear this weekend, Capital was a late withdrawal from the tournament and Santa Fe’s participation was somewhat spotty.
Friday, Los Alamos lost its tournament opener to St. Michael’s, 6-3. Saturday, Los Alamos split its two contests, knocking off Santa Fe 8-1 and falling to Clovis 9-0.
Cottrell said a good part of his team was able to participate both days and virtually all of his available players played at least one day.
