Hockey: LA heads to Ill. for national tourney

-A A +A
By The Staff

The Los Alamos Hilltopper hockey team will take part in the 2011 High School National Championships this week.
Los Alamos, one of the top teams in New Mexico, opens the national tournament with pool play staring Wednesday. Los Alamos has three scheduled games next week and, should it survive through next Sunday, would play for the national title.
The tournament will be played in Bensenville, Ill., a suburb of Chicago, near Lake Michigan.
The Hilltoppers are one of four teams in their pool. They will play Huntsville, Ala., Tuesday night, Greenville North (N.C.) Wednesday morning and Omaha, Neb., Thursday morning.
Los Alamos finished as the runner-up in the New Mexico Interscholastic Ice Hockey League regular season in 2010-11. Los Alamos posted a record of 15-2-1 during the season and earned the No. 2 seed in the Year-End Tournament last month.
The state championship was won by the Taos Ice Tigers, but the Tigers had announced during the regular season they would be unable to travel to the national tournament even if they ended up winning state.
Instead, the Hilltoppers will be filling in at the national event.
