Seniors will be honored at final home game tonight

By Dann Alison

The Los Alamos Hilltopper hockey team (8-4-2) completes its regular season play this weekend, including its final home game Friday night.

The Hilltoppers will play their final home game Friday against the Cibola Cougars (8-4-1). Game time is 7 p.m.

Los Alamos’ final game of the regular season will be against the Albuquerque Outkast (7-4-2) Sunday.

The Hilltoppers have lost to both of these teams this season and are looking to rebound following two ties last weekend in which they outshot their opposition by a combined 76-13 but couldn’t get the puck past two solid goalies.

Tonight is designated as Senior Appreciation Night and will start with a brief recognition ceremony for the graduating seniors and their parents.

The graduating seniors in the Los Alamos hockey program include Andre Appert, Kyle Barich-Mooday, Oliver Funsten, Neel Gupta, Ryan Hopper, Ryan Locke, Marina Meneakis, Colton Pope, Patrick Raichur, Cameron Ranken, Justin Trujillo and Matt Xu.

This is the second year in a row that the team has lost roughly half of its roster to graduation.

Sunday’s game is set for 11:30 a.m. at Albuquerque’s Outpost Arena.
