The Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team went 1-3 at the very tough Farmington Softball Invitational this weekend.
Los Alamos lost twice to the Kirtland Central Broncos at the tournament, in its opening and concluding games of the tournament. It also fell to Farmington, the No. 2-ranked team in Class AAAA, but topped Shiprock in its second game late Friday afternoon.
To open the tournament Friday, the Hilltoppers fell by one run to Kirtland Central, but bounced back to win their second game Friday, topping the Shiprock Chieftains 18-7.
The 5-4 loss was Los Alamos’ second loss of the season to the Broncos, while Friday’s win was the second time Los Alamos had beaten the Chieftains. Los Alamos played both those teams earlier this month at the Piedra Vista Invitational.
In the opener against the Broncos, pitcher Monika Teter threw a three-hitter.
Hilltopper manager Roger Anaya said the team had some chances to score runs to help Teter out Friday, but couldn’t find key hits when it needed them, save a 3-run home run by catcher Micaela Christensen.
Los Alamos (3-7) found plenty of hits, however, in Friday’s nightcap against Shiprock. Los Alamos pounded out 17 hits to win going away.
