The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls tennis team thumped the Española Valley Sundevils 9-0 in their match Tuesday at Española Valley.
Los Alamos didn’t lose a single set Tuesday despite shuffling its lineup considerably. Susanna Lucido played in the No. 1 singles spot and earned a 6-3, 6-4 victory over the Sundevils’ No. 1, Fran Lopez.
Tuesday’s contest was the first time in nearly a decade Los Alamos has traveled to Española Valley. The tennis courts in Española Valley fell into disrepair and were unplayable until they were renovated in the offseason.
Los Alamos’ top players will travel to the Carlsbad Invitational this weekend while the rest of its team will play in a tournament in Taos.
