It’s going to be a trial by fire at the top of the season for the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team.
But the Hilltoppers are hoping that will light the spark for bigger and better things down the road.
Los Alamos has some key returners coming back in some key spots and, with an extra year of experience under their belts, they feel they have a chance to make a run in Class 5A this season.
Los Alamos opens its season with a tough game, taking on the Bosque School Bobcats at home Tuesday. That will be followed up later this week by the Louie Cernicek Invitational, which almost invariably features some solid competition.
For the Hilltoppers, the pieces may be there for a very productive season. The key will be getting and staying on the same page as quickly as possible.
Los Alamos veteran goalkeeper Chris Parker, the hero of his team’s upset win over Farmington last season, knows to get there, the Hilltoppers will have to keep their mental focus.
“We should do fine everywhere, it’s really just how hard we work,” he said. “As long as everyone’s trying their best and not giving up when they get beat, we should do fine.”
Despite some big losses to graduation off last season’s team, there is plenty of experience coming back.
