The pressure is officially off.
Combined with an upset loss by the Española Valley Sundevils against the Capital Jaguars, the Los Alamos Hilltoppers clinched the District 2-4A title with its victory over the Santa Fe Demons Wednesday.
Los Alamos had little trouble with Santa Fe at Griffith Gymnasium, taking a 25-14, 25-11, 25-19 sweep. The win improved Los Alamos’ record to a spotless 6-0 in district.
Española Valley, meanwhile, was the only team left in 2-4A that had a mathematical shot at Los Alamos, albeit a slim one. That shot evaporated with its three-set loss to Capital. Prior to that victory Wednesday night in Santa Fe, Capital had been winless on the district season.
The Hilltoppers (15-3 overall) have just two regular season contests remaining, against Española Valley Saturday and Capital next week, before the District 2-4A tournament.
With their regular season championship, the Hilltoppers not only get to host the 2-4A tournament championship match Nov. 5, they also earn an automatic bid into the state Class 4A playoffs.
Los Alamos got its big hitters involved early and often.
