Girls basketball > ’Toppers must wait until Sunday to learn their playoff fate

By Mike Cote

ESPAÑOLA – The second meeting between the Los Alamos Hilltoppers and the Española Valley Sundevils played out very much like their first meeting did.
And, unfortunately for the Hilltoppers, the result was the same as well.
Los Alamos advanced to the District 2-4A girls basketball semifinals to take on the Sundevils and, for the third time in as many go-rounds, the Sundevils prevailed.
Española Valley jumped out to a big early lead, going up by as many as 13 points in the first half, then survived a second half comeback attempt by Los Alamos to prevail 61-48 Thursday at Edward Medina Gymnasium.
The loss knocks the Hilltoppers out of the district tournament. They now must wait until Sunday evening to see if they’ve done enough to qualify for the state tournament.
Hilltopper head coach Ann Stewart believes her team will get into the playoffs, but probably on the lower end of the bracket.
“Based on our record, we’re probably going to get a 14 seed,” she said.
