Girls tennis: Toppers place third at tournament

-A A +A

Fitzsimmons, Hengartner are runners-up in singles draws

By The Staff

The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls tennis team placed third at its home-away-from-home invitational Saturday.
Los Alamos hosted a singles and doubles tournament Saturday. However, because Los Alamos lacks a centralized location to hold a big tournament, it was played at Capital High School in Santa Fe.
The Hilltoppers finished with nine team points in the tournament, which included three singles draws and two doubles draws.
Not surprisingly, the Farmington Scorpions, the two-time defending Class 4A champions and the odds-on favorites to win again in 2011, easily claimed the team title. Farmington grabbed 30 points at the tournament, more than the next three teams combined. Rio Rancho’s Sue Cleveland finished in second place with 12 points.
Farmington’s team swept all five competitions to cruise to the team victory.
For Los Alamos, Colleen Fitzsimmons was the runner-up in the top singles draw. Fitzsimmons picked up a 4-0, 4-1 victory over Lyle Kotsch of Santa Fe Prep in the quarterfinals — all the rounds prior to the semifinal rounds were four-game sets — then earned another straight-set victory in the semifinals.
In the final, however, Fitzsimmons ran into Farmington’s very tough MacKenzie Pavlik, who picked up a 6-1, 6-1 win.
