Softball: Hilltopper final statistics of 2009 season

-A A +A
By The Staff

Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team pitcher Monika Teter had a statistically-brilliant first varsity season in 2009.

Teter, a freshman, was among the top pitchers in the state in strikeouts and earned-run average for the 2009 season, which ended in mid-May. Teter, who posted a record of 6-3 this season, finished with an ERA of 2.48, which placed her just outside of the top 20 pitchers in the state.

Statewide statistics were complied by the New Mexico Overtime Sports Center (NMOTSC.com).

Offensively for the Hilltoppers, Yvette Padilla had a .462 batting average to lead the team, while Teter’s freshman battery partner, Micaela Christensen, led Los Alamos with 26 hits on the season.

Nyleen Cook, who was named as an alternate to this year’s North-South All-Star Game, finished with a team-leading 25 RBI.

Los Alamos manager, Roger Anaya, said Cook was put on the roster for the All-Star series due to an injury. The Class 4A-5A All-Star series will be played in Clovis Friday and Saturday.

Cook, a senior, also had a .310 batting average and pounded out 22 hits on the year.

Los Alamos finished as the District 2AAAA runner-up behind Española Valley this season. It pulled off one of the most remarkable upsets of the softball postseason with its first round victory over Farmington, but was bounced from the tournament with two straight losses after its upset win.

Here are the top statistical leaders in each offensive and pitching category and statistical leaders for the Hilltoppers this season. Players are from Los Alamos unless otherwise indicated. Information is provided by New Mexico Overtime Sports Center and the Hilltopper softball program.
