For the second straight season, the Los Alamos Hilltopper football team wasn’t invited to the Class 4A state playoffs.
The Hilltoppers, who finished as the runners-up in the 2013 District 2-4A race, was left out of the postseason bracket, which was released Sunday by the New Mexico Activities Association.
For the fourth straight year, only one team was invited from District 2 to compete in the playoffs. The Santa Fe Demons, who topped Los Alamos for the district title, will be the district’s only representative, and even the Demons were admitted solely because they had an automatic bid.
The Demons (4-6 overall, 3-1 in 2-4A) will go into the playoffs as the No. 12 seed, the lowest in the bracket. They will face fifth-seeded Las Cruces Centennial in this weekend’s first round in Las Cruces and will be a huge underdog heading in.
Los Alamos finished 4-6 on the year. It was 3-1 in 2-4A play, but didn’t beat a 4A team outside of District 2.
This is the third time in four years the Hilltoppers will miss out on the postseason. They were invited in 2011, but, like Santa Fe this season, went in as a No. 12 seed following a District 2 title and were hammered in the first round by Los Lunas.
