LA opens district play at home Wednesday

Jiri Kubicek can’t help but chuckle when he looks at the current standings as the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team prepares for the opener of its District 2-4A season.
“You look at the teams. We have the worst record,” said Kubicek, the veteran head coach of Los Alamos.
The District 2-4A soccer season officially opens for Los Alamos Wednesday. The Hilltopper boys and girls will face the Bernalillo Spartans in a day-night doubleheader at Sullivan Field. The girls game is scheduled for 4 p.m.
And while it’s true the Hilltopper girls have won just two games this season, there seems to be little reason for them to panic.
Los Alamos has dominated the District 2-4A race since 2006, the year the St. Pius X Sartans left. Since that time, Los Alamos has allowed just one goal during district play, that coming last season against Santa Fe.
The Hilltoppers, despite posting just a 2-7 record so far, will still be the heavy favorites heading in with Santa Fe likely being the only stumbling block they will have to be wary of.
“I think everybody’s OK,” Kubicek said of the team’s tough start to the season. “Everybody knows we have had a tough schedule, but we’re improving. We’re making progress. They should feel good about themselves.”
