SANTA FE – A trio of Los Alamos Hilltopper girls tennis teams will be entered into the Class 4A state individual tournament after a big performance this weekend.
Los Alamos earned a convincing win at the District 2-4A championship tournament this weekend, keeping its impressive streak of district titles intact, while taking all of the top three slots in the 2-4A doubles bracket, where most of its top players elected to enter.
Saturday’s finals were played at Capital High School.
The Hilltoppers’ top doubles teams met for a shot at the district crown, with the No. 1 seed Gillian Hsieh-Ratliff/Madeline Margevicius knocking off the No. 2 seed Colleen Fitzsimmons/Susanna Lucido in straight sets.
Hsieh-Ratliff/Margevicius got a scare in the first set when Fitzsimmons/Lucido won three consecutive games, breaking Hsieh-Ratliff’s serve in the process, to tie the score at 4-4. In the next game, Fitzsimmons/Lucido went up 15-40 before Hsieh-Ratliff/Margevicius battled back, taking four straight points to win.
Losing that game seemed to take the wind out of the sails of Fitzsimmons/Lucido. It would not win another game in the match.
