Today, both the Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball and softball teams will learn where they will land in the Class 4A state championship playoffs.
The state playoffs for both sports start this coming weekend at home sites before the venues shift to Albuquerque and Rio Rancho next week.
Los Alamos’ baseball team is already guaranteed a spot in the playoffs after earning this year’s District 2-4A championship. The Hilltoppers went 20-6 on the year, one of only a select few teams in the state to get to 20 wins in 2014.
While the Hilltoppers are a likely candidate for a top-eight seed, which comes with the privilege of hosting a first-round series, there’s a lot of flexibility where they will ultimately end up.
“They’re going to put Piedra Vista, Farmington, Albuquerque Academy and St. Pius ahead of us,” Los Alamos manager Mike Gill said. “We lost to three of those four teams. I imagine us as a five seed, but I don’t know. Goddard has a great record. I’d say anywhere from five to seven.”
Heading into this weekend, the Hilltoppers were rated No. 7 in Class 4A, according to MaxPreps.com, one of the major indicators of where the Hilltoppers might end up in the seeding.
In softball, things were a little more uncertain.
