Soccer: Girls in line for a first-round bye, boys could end up in bottom third

By The Staff

The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls soccer teams will learn their postseason fates today.
The New Mexico Activities Association will announce the boys and girls soccer brackets today. The NMAA’s seeding and selection committee will post the playoff brackets on the nmact.com website.
The 2011 playoffs will start will first-round games Friday and Saturday at the homes of the Nos. 5-8 seeds. They will host the 9-12 seeds, while seeds 1-4 get a bye to the state quarterfinals.
Los Alamos’ girls appear to be in line for a top four seed and may even get a top two seed, although with a loss earlier this month to St. Pius X, a No. 1 seed may not be in the cards.
The Hilltopper girls earned the District 2-4A championship this season, going undefeated and unscored-upon in district for the fifth consecutive season.
Where Los Alamos’ boys soccer team might land, however, is anyone’s guess. Los Alamos could go virtually anywhere from 5 to 11, although it may not have the credentials, with losses during the regular season to Farmington (twice), Albuquerque Academy (twice), St. Pius and Roswell to get into the top eight and host a first-round game.
Further, Los Alamos fell in a critical 2-4A contest last week against Capital, which ultimately earned a leg-up on the Hilltoppers in the district race.
