Today is the day the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls soccer teams will learn their playoff fates.
The New Mexico Activities Association’s soccer seeding and selection committee will meet to determine the postseason brackets for the upcoming state tournament. Tournament brackets are scheduled to come out at 5 p.m. today.
Heading into Saturday, the final day of the soccer regular season for soccer across the state, the Hilltopper boys were still unsure if they would win the District 2-4A championship and grab the district’s automatic bid into the playoffs.
While Los Alamos’ boys are a safe bet for an at-large bid this season, after posting a 10-10 season record and going 7-4 against Class 4A schools, the difference between going in as the District 2 champ and an at-large pick could be huge.
Capital, which needed to beat Santa Fe by two goals and keep Santa Fe down to a low number of goals Saturday in order to win the district title, was ranked third in the MaxPrep.com poll released Tuesday.
That poll holds a lot of sway when teams are being seeded for the state tournament, but if Los Alamos (10-10) does end up with the district championship, it would, by rule, have to be seeded ahead of Capital in the playoffs — Capital (11-6) was likely a top-four team before its 2-1 loss to Los Alamos Tuesday.
