Girls doubles teams advance, boys doubles teams go out in opening round at state


All three Los Alamos girls doubles teams survived Wednesday’s opening round of the Class 4A playoffs. The Hilltoppers all advanced to this morning’s quarterfinal round at the Jerry Cline Tennis Center in Albuquerque.

Unfortunately, the Hilltopper boys didn’t fare so well, falling in both their doubles matches to open the tournament.

The Hilltopper third-seeded doubles team of Madeline Margevicius/Gillian Hsieh-Ratliff handily defeated Madison Raess/Xochitl Benitez of Las Cruces Centennial 6-1, 6-1 to move on to the quarters.

Margevicius/Hsieh-Ratliff was scheduled to square off against the No. 6 seed in the girls doubles draw, Riley Coleman/Liza Briody-Pavlik of Farmington with the winner advancing to the tournament semifinals this afternoon.

Seeded right behind Margevicius/Hsieh-Ratliff is another Los Alamos team, Susanna Lucido/Colleen Fitzsimmons, which also earned a trip to the quarterfinals. Lucido/Fitzsimmons held on through a tight first set against Farmington’s Payton Sandoval/Caroline Moss, 7-6 (7-5) before taking the second set 6-2.

Also moving on were Hannah Cunningham/Laura Whicker, which earned a default win over a team from Albuquerque Academy.
