While the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team fell in about where it expected to in the Class AAAA state tournament bracket, the fates of some other teams turned out to be a bit different.
Los Alamos was awarded the sixth seed in the Class AAAA championship bracket, which was released Sunday. The AAAA state tournament gets going Friday and continues through Nov. 6 with the state title game.
The Hilltoppers missed out on one of the top four seeds, which would’ve come with an automatic bid into the playoff quarterfinals, but that didn’t seem to be much of an issue.
“We’re playing good,” Los Alamos head coach Jiri Kubicek said. “I think we need some more games. We’ve got a couple of kids that are coming back from injuries. They started practicing with us (Monday).”
Los Alamos will open its state tournament run Saturday when it hosts Kirtland Central. Game time is set for 4 p.m. at Sullivan Field.
Not surprisingly, the Albuquerque Academy Chargers, the two-time defending Class AAAA champions, earned the No. 1 seed in the 2010 bracket.
However, Kubicek did express some surprise with the rest of the top four.
Landing at No. 2 in the bracket was Aztec, which got that spot just a day after falling to Los Alamos in the season finale.
