The Los Alamos junior softball All-Star team will advance to the southwestern regional playoffs this coming weekend.
Los Alamos’ juniors — comprised of 13-14 year olds — will take on a team from Colorado in the opening round of the tournament Saturday.
The tournament will be played at Alto Park in Santa Fe.
For the regionals, the host district’s champion gets an automatic bid into the tournament. Los Alamos plays in District 1 along with Little Leagues representing Santa Fe, Española and Pojoaque. Los Alamos advanced after Española couldn’t field a team to play for the District 1 title.
Along with Los Alamos’ All-Stars, two teams from Texas and a team from Louisiana will also be vying for the regional title. Also taking part is Las Vegas, which won the New Mexico state title this year.
The winner of the southwestern regional playoff will advance to the Little League World Series.
If Los Alamos wins its opener, scheduled for 10:30 a.m., it will play again at 1:30 p.m. If not, Los Alamos will play an elimination game at 10 a.m. Sunday.
The tournament is double-elimination format and continues through Wednesday in Santa Fe.
Here is the roster for the Los Alamos junior softball All-Stars:
Manager: Robbie Harris
Coach: Audra Tucker
Coach: Terran Robertson
Coach: Micaela Christensen
