The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls tennis team split its matches at the Bosque School Triangular this weekend.
Los Alamos topped host Bosque School 6-3 at the triangular, but fell to the Farmington Scorpions 7-2 at the same event.
Bosque is a top-shelf small-school program but isn’t the powerhouse it was in 2008. Farmington, however, is the team to beat in Class AAAA in 2009.
Hilltopper head coach Bruce Cottrell said, however, he’s not sure if there’s any team in AAAA that can beat Farmington’s Scorpions.
“I thought we played pretty well at the lower end,” Cottrell said of his team’s match against Farmington. “But the Merrion girls could play No. 1 for us. Any of them.”
Considering the Scorpions (7-0) have three Merrions on their team, it’s going to be a tall order for Los Alamos (8-4-1) or anyone else to beat them.
Saturday’s match was the second time Los Alamos had played Farmington this season and the result was actually considerably better than their first meeting.
In the initial face-off between the two schools April 10, the Scorpions pitched a 9-0 shutout.
