Softball: LA holds on to top Española Valley Wednesday

-A A +A

Toppers open their 2-4A season with a victory

By Mike Cote

As any softball player in northern New Mexico will say, few things sting the hands as much as a ball hit off the end of the bat on a cold day.
So when Monika Teter connected with a first-pitch change-up in the sixth inning and she felt no sting at all, she knew the ball was going somewhere.
“That felt really good,” Teter said. “That’s one of those hits you don’t feel a thing. I’ve had those stings with hitting, but that felt good.”
Late in Wednesday’s game at Overlook Park, with the temperature dropping and the sparkle rising in the favor of the Española Valley Sundevils, Teter gave her team a much-needed lift.
Teter crushed the off-speed pitch over the center field fence, tacking on a big insurance run in the bottom of the sixth, which helped Los Alamos secure a 4-2 victory over Española Valley in the District 2-4A opener for both teams.
Just before Teter’s solo shot, Española Valley had pushed two runs across the plate against Teter, the Hilltoppers’ starting pitcher, in the previous two innings to slice the Hillltoppers’ lead down to one.
