The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team held off several comeback attempts by the Pojoaque Elks to win Friday night.

Los Alamos went up early in its home opener and never relinquished the lead despite a big night from Pojoaque's Cheyenne Cordova.

Hilltopper Hayley Each dropped in 17 points and had six rebounds in the second half as the Hilltoppers won 53-47 at Griffith Gymnasium.

Los Alamos (1-1) spoiled the Griffith Gymnasium debut for the new team of Ron Drake with his new team.
