Softball: LA claims share of first in 2-4A with win Wednesday

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

The good news for the Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team was that it finished the first half of the District 2-4A season with a share of the lead.
The bad news, however, is that the Hilltoppers will have to play out the remainder of the district season on the road.
Due to a scheduling anomaly, the Hilltoppers played all six of their home district games in row, but now will have to take their show on the road for the balance of the season. As unsettling as that may be, there are many worse places to be starting a long road stretch than at the top looking down.
Los Alamos earned a first-place district tie Wednesday, knocking off the Santa Fe Demons 8-2 at Overlook Park. The Demons and the Hilltoppers are both sitting at 5-1 at the halfway point of the 2-4A season and the Hilltoppers, for the moment, anyway, have the tiebreaker.
Los Alamos took advantage of what was given to it Wednesday, including seven Santa Fe errors, all but one of which was charged to pitcher Camille Romero. Los Alamos cashed in on six of those seven errors.
Being able to keep the ball in play playing smallball and forcing the Demon defense to adjust was key, Hilltopper manager Roger Anaya said.
