ALBUQUERQUE — Bruce Cottrell asked a rhetorical question on the way to check on his No. 5 and No. 6 singles.
“Now you see why we’re scared of Farmington?”
Although the Hilltoppers had dominated the Farmington Scorpions in two meetings during the regular season, Cottrell always added the caveat that several of the matches between the two squads could’ve gone either way.
Saturday at the Jerry Cline Tennis Center, all six of the singles matches could’ve gone either way, but the most hotly disputed contests all went the way of the Los Alamos Hilltoppers.
In the girls state Class AAAA championship dual, the Hilltoppers came from behind in a pair of singles contests, then took the No. 3 doubles match to win 5-2 and take their second straight state title.
“It’s incredible,” Los Alamos No. 5 Elyse Jalbert, one of the heroes of the state title dual, said after Los Alamos iced the state title. “I’m really excited. It is incredible.”
