Softball: LA drops Academy at home

-A A +A
By The Staff

The Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team earned its second straight big victory at home Saturday.

Hilltopper pitcher Monika Teter fanned 18 batters and the Hilltopper offense pounded out 13 hits as they rolled to an 11-3 victory over the Albuquerque Academy Chargers Saturday at Overlook Park.

Los Alamos scored five times in the bottom of the first inning and five more time in the bottom of the sixth to earn the victory over the Class AAAA Chargers.

Los Alamos manager Roger Anaya said his team is starting a very important stretch of games, including District 2AAAA games against Bernalillo and Española Valley that could potentially go a long way to determining the district championships.

“Last year, we went in to play (Academy) down there and they beat us 11-1,” Anaya said. “It was an important game because we want to continue winning. We’re playing Pojoaque Monday and we didn’t want any letdowns.”

Wednesday, the Hilltoppers dismantled the Taos Tigers in their 2AAAA opener, 18-3, winning that contest in three innings. Following the Pojoaque game, a makeup from a washed out nondistrict date scheduled for last month, Los Alamos will see Bernalillo Wednesday at home, followed by a home doubleheader against reigning district champ Española Valley.
