Starting today, the Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team will get a shot at defending its District 2-4A crown.
Los Alamos hosts what has been its toughest district opponent at 4 p.m. Española Valley’s Sundevils will be looking to put the Hilltoppers into an early district hole at Overlook Park in White Rock.
The Hilltoppers were dominant in the 2010 2-4A race, going a spotless 12-0 against the other four district squads. While the Hilltoppers have been playing better ball in recent weeks, pulling off the same feat in 2011 could be a tall order.
Manager Roger Anaya said the district race could be a tight one this season and getting off to a good start will be key.
“We’d like to get that win right away and stay up at the top of the district,” he said. “The second half of the season begins now.”
Los Alamos got off to a rough start in 2011, going 2-8 before reeling off three straight victories. That win streak was snapped Saturday, however, with Los Alamos losing to Raton 8-1.
Los Alamos, Española Valley and Bernalillo could all make a run for the district crown. Santa Fe and Capital have both struggled in the nondistrict season, particularly Capital (1-11), and aren’t expected to be big factors in the title race.
