The Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team has its regular season finale this afternoon against the Capital Jaguars, but the game Los Alamos may be most worried about will be out of town.
Los Alamos (13-12) has an excellent chance to finish out its season on a winning note against the Jaguars (3-19) and finish two games above .500.
However, the Hilltoppers, even with a win today, are still squarely on the bubble in terms of getting an at-large bid into the state tournament — brackets will be released Sunday.
That could change, however, if the Bernalillo Spartans can top the Santa Fe Demons this afternoon in Bernalillo. A win by the Spartans (17-4) would put the Hilltoppers into the runner-up spot in the District 2-4A standings, assuming the Hilltoppers can hold off the Jaguars, whom they dominated in two games earlier this season.
A win by Bernalillo would give Los Alamos and Santa Fe equal marks in the loss column, but Los Alamos earned the district tiebreaker over Santa Fe with a 3-1 victory April 23.
Santa Fe (13-7) is a safe bet to earn an at-large bid this season, but Los Alamos will not only have get into the playoffs if Santa Fe gets in, but will have to be granted a higher seed than the Demons.
