SANTA FE — Despite not being able to make much of a dent against the Santa Fe Demons, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys tennis team will advance to this week’s Class 4A team playoffs.
Los Alamos picked up the No. 7 seed for the team tournament, which starts Friday in Albuquerque.
Unfortunately for the Hilltoppers, they will be playing what is essentially a play-in game into the main 4A team draw early Friday morning. They will face the St. Pius X Sartans, the No. 10 seed, in the opening round at Sierra Tennis Club on the west side of Albuquerque.
Los Alamos finished as the District 2-4A runners-up last weekend. Los Alamos advanced to the team final, but was topped 5-0 by the top-seeded Demons, who swept five of the six singles contests to clinch the match.
Individually, Los Alamos will also send Nikita Belooussov to the 4A playoffs, as well as its top doubles team of Forrest White/George Margevicius. The singles and doubles playoffs get going Wednesday.
Santa Fe, which is spearheaded by Warren Fulgenzi but features a solid top-to-bottom lineup, was too much for the Hilltoppers to compete against, but Belooussov said he felt good about his overall performance last weekend.
