Softball takes second at Aztec Invite

-A A +A
By The Staff

The Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team earned its way into the championship game of the Aztec Invitational tournament this weekend.
The Hilltoppers scored a pair of victories in pool play Friday, knocking off both Kirtland Central and Shiprock to get to the tournament finale. Saturday, however, the Hilltoppers couldn’t overcome a pair of big innings by Aztec’s Tigers.
Los Alamos picked up a 4-0 shutout win over Kirtland Central and pushed 11 runs across the plate in one inning to take an 11-7 win over Shiprock. In the championship game, Aztec prevailed 12-4.
Hilltopper ace Monika Teter tossed a complete game to top Kirtland Central’s Broncos. Teter gave up just four hits through seven innings.
The Broncos held the Hilltoppers scoreless through five innings before Emily Lucero broke the scoreless tie with a solo home run in the sixth. Erin Kirk sparked a seventh inning rally with a lead-off triple.
Against the Shiprock Chieftans, Los Alamos trailed 6-0 after 2-1/2 innings but exploded for 11 runs on 10 hits to take over the contest. Starting pitcher Emilee Jones went five innings to earn the victory.
