Girls tennis: Nothing decided in LA’s dual with Taos Tuesday

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

Which is the dominant team in District 2AAAA girls tennis?

That’s a question that wasn’t answered Tuesday.

Both the visiting Taos Tigers and the homestanding Los Alamos Hilltoppers evenly split four matches Tuesday night in a dual between the two squads. The third match, the No. 2 doubles contest, was called by darkness Tuesday after the teams of Brenna O’Hara/Sarah Worland and Alex Cancro/Olivia Cancro evenly split their two sets.

What has become apparent so far this season, however, is that the Hilltoppers and the Tigers are the two dominant district franchises and will almost certainly be seeded No. 1 and No. 2 at the 2AAAA tournament.

In what order they’re seeded could well be determined at the pre-District 2AAAA tournament this weekend.

Los Alamos, which is coming off a rough outing at last weekend’s Albuquerque Academy Invitational, was hoping for a better finish against the Tigers than the 4-4 showing it got Tuesday.

“The scores speak for themselves,” Los Alamos head coach Bruce Cottrell said. “I don’t think they realized how tough Taos is, but they do now.”

Los Alamos might have come up on the short end of Tuesday’s match if not for No. 3 doubles team Gillian Hsieh-Ratliff/Madeline Margevicius.
