LA, St. Pius square off in softball
The Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team will be on the road for a big Class 4A match-up with a longtime rival.
The Hilltoppers (2-5) will take on the St. Pius X Sartans in Albuquerque.
So far this season, the Hilltoppers are 1-4 against Class 4A opponents and may not be able to afford a nondistrict loss to another 4A opponent if they have their eye on hosting a first round playoff game.
The Sartans (4-8) lost four of their first five contests this year, but have won two of their last three outings before being romped 15-4 against Valley at last weekend’s Metro Invitational.
Los Alamos, meanwhile, shut out Pojoaque Valley 10-0 in its most recent outing last Tuesday. Pitcher Emilee Jones threw six shutout innings and Erin Kirk, in her first appearance of the season, went 3-for-4 at the plate, scoring two runs and driving in a run.
Today’s game, which is scheduled to start at 4:30 p.m. will be broadcast on KRSN AM 1490.
