In between games at Saturday’s Los Alamos-Santa Fe softball doubleheader, the Santa Fe Demons held a ceremony to honor their senior, during which they congratulated the Hilltoppers for winning the district title.
While it wasn’t technically accurate at that point, the Hilltoppers made it so in game two.
Los Alamos swept both ends of Saturday’s doubleheader, taking game one 10-0 in six innings game two 12-1, also in six innings to clinch the District 2-4A title.
Had Los Alamos lost the second game, it, Bernalillo and Santa Fe would’ve gone into a tiebreaker, which Los Alamos probably would’ve won anyway, unless it surrendered more than 18 runs.
But with the sweep, the Hilltoppers earned their third straight 2-4A title outright. They close the 2011 season with a district record of 10-2.
Los Alamos will now await the release of the Class 4A state championship playoff bracket today. Los Alamos earned an automatic bid into the tournament with its district title, while 2-4A runner-up Bernalillo, with 20 wins on the season, is a virtual lock for an at-large nod.
Hilltopper manager Roger Anaya said he thinks his team with its finish to the season will get into the upper half of the 4A bracket.
