Tennis: Hilltopper teams sweep duals vs. 2AAAA opponents

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

If the goal of the Los Alamos Hilltoppers was to send a message to its District 2AAAA competitors, it accomplished that quite nicely.But despite two shutout wins apiece by the Hilltopper boys and girls Tuesday in a pair of home duals, that was not really the objective.Capital and Espaola Valley, who will likely battle each other for the district basement come 2AAAA tournament time, wanted to schedule contests with the Hilltoppers, the district front-runners, in order to try to become a little bit better.Neither Los Alamos team played its strongest lineups — nor could’ve even if it had wanted to with several players out due to spring break. However, both teams still blanked both teams 9-0. Throughout Tuesday’s play, the two Los Alamos teams dropped a combined two sets in 36 matches.The wins kept both teams on track after big tournaments in Taos this weekend.“We’re definitely improving,” Hilltopper Lauren Castro said. “We started off our season a little slow, but the singles are better and the doubles are definitely better.”Castro blanked her opponent, Sophia Arellanes, from Capital in a singles contest Tuesday morning, then she and doubles partner Deanna Salazar topped Espaola Valley’s No.
