A pair of Los Alamos Hilltopper softball veterans were invited to participate in the North-South All-Star series.
Los Alamos’ Micaela Christensen and Erin Kirk were selected for the Class 4A/5A North All-Star team. The All-Star selections were announced Tuesday by the New Mexico High School Coaches Association.
Selections are made by high school coaches across the state. Only graduating seniors are eligible to participate.
Christensen, one of the most dangerous hitters in Los Alamos program history, was named as a shortstop to the North team. Christensen, a home-schooled student, will attend and play softball for Taylor University in Upland, Ind., next semester.
Kirk, meanwhile, was picked to play first base for the North All-Stars.
This will be a busy summer for Kirk, who is also scheduled to play in the All-Star girls basketball game.
The North-South series will be played June 14-15 at the Farmington Sports Complex, a week after Kirk is scheduled to appear in the All-Star basketball contest.
Piedra Vista, the Class 4A champions this season, placed three players on the North team — pitcher Krissy Fortner, catcher Alex Moreno and third baseman Jordan Montoya — while 4A runner-up Aztec and Albuquerque High, along with Los Alamos, had two selections.
On the South team, Carlsbad led all schools with five selections.
The NMHSCA also released the All-Star selections for the 2013 baseball season. No Hilltoppers nor any other players from District 2-4A were named to the North squad.
