Roger Anaya went 15-for-16 in calling the entries for the upcoming Class 4A softball playoffs.
Anaya, the manager of the Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team, correctly called his seed in the upcoming postseason. The Hilltoppers finished with a No. 12 seed for the first round.
The postseason brackets were released Sunday. Play starts Friday for most 4A teams across the state.
The playoffs start with a first round single-elimination contest. The winners advance to play double-elimination starting midweek next week.
For Los Alamos, it will be on the road for the first round. It will go to a familiar spot, Los Lunas, but it will be playing the Valencia Jaguars, the No. 5 seed in the tournament.
Prior to the release of the bracket, Anaya said he was hoping to see someone in the first round other than the Los Lunas Tigers, a group Los Alamos runs into quite often.
“We were happy with the seed we got,” Anaya said. “We were not too surprised. When we sat down and did all the numbers, we thought we’d move up some and the 11-13 seed is what we were hoping for. Valencia is a pretty good place to go.”
The Hilltoppers (14-12) finished as the runners-up in District 2 this season. The Hilltoppers won a critical game over the Santa Fe Demons late in the year to squeak out the No. 2 spot in district.
