The two athletes named as the District 2-4A Players of the Year in baseball and softball came as no surprise to anyone.
Hilltopper sophomore Jared Mang, who was the team’s top pitcher and hitter, earned the Player of the Year selection in baseball, while Bernalillo’s dominating pitcher Demi Magdalena was named Player of the Year for 2-4A softball.
The all-district teams were released this morning. Los Alamos’ top players were prominent in both sports, grabbing five baseball first team slots and four softball first team slots.
For Mang, it was his second consecutive Player of the Year honor. Mang has been starting — and hitting third in the batting order — since his eighth grade year. He was named to the 2-4A first team in 2011 and had a strong case to win the Player of the Year honor that season as well, but his age was likely a factor in the decision to give that year’s award to Ricky Gonzales of Española Valley.
Also for Los Alamos’ baseball team, Mike Gill earned his fifth consecutive Manager of the Year honor from the district. Gill has led Los Alamos to five straight 2-4A titles, with the Hilltoppers going 11-1 in the district in 2013.
