Tennis: LA starts singles, doubles Thursday

The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls tennis teams will be well-represented at the 2009 state Class AAAA tournament.

The tournament starts Thursday with the individual championship matches. Team play starts Friday and continues through Saturday.

Most of the state action — and all involving the Hilltoppers — will take place at the Jerry Cline Tennis Complex in Albuquerque.

The Hilltopper girls qualified three individuals and two doubles teams into Thursday’s draw, while the Hilltopper boys have a pair of individuals and pair of doubles teams slated to compete in those tournaments.

Originally, the state team and state individual tournaments were set to be played on separate weekends, but due to the stoppage of all athletic competition imposed by the New Mexico Activities Association last week, the NMAA decided to hold both competitions this week. The format being used was scheduled to go into effect following the 2010 regular season.

Los Alamos will send a pair of eighth-grade girls into Thursday’s play. Madeline Margevicius, the District 2AAAA runner-up earned a seventh seed for the tournament, while third-place district finisher Gillian Hsieh-Ratliff will take one eighth-seeded Kayla Olson of Silver.
