Heading into the 2010 season, the Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team is expecting big things and believes it has the personnel to accomplish those.
Los Alamos will return the bulk of its roster from the 2009 season, Roger Anaya’s first as manager. It lost just four seniors off that team, only two of which were regular starters.
The Hilltoppers qualified for the Class AAAA state tournament last season after finishing second to Española Valley in the District 2 standings. At the state tournament, the Hilltoppers pulled off one of the most memorable upsets state softball has seen in recent years, knocking off fourth-seeded Farmington in the first round — Los Alamos entered the tournament as a 13 seed.
Starting off this season won’t be easy for Los Alamos, however. Not only will the Hilltoppers head to the very tough Piedra Vista Softball Challenge — their first opponent will be Bloomfield, one of the top AAA programs in the state — they will be going in having had just a handful of work outside.
“I would probably say it will take one to two practices to get your depth perception back,” center fielder Brianna Radosevich said during Tuesday’s workout in White Rock. “You’re not judging (fly balls) against a ceiling.”
