Tennis: LA teams finish second at Academy

-A A +A

Both boys, girls win three of four including wins over Goddard’s Rockets

By The Staff

Both the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls tennis teams won three of four duals matches at the Albuquerque Academy Invitational this weekend.
The Hilltopper squads knocked out some solid competition at the tournament, hosted by Academy’s Chargers Friday and Saturday, with both teams losing only to the likely No. 1 Class 4A seeds in the state.
Los Alamos’ girls picked up arguably their biggest win of the season to date Friday, topping the Goddard Rockets 6-3 Friday.
 Los Alamos girls head coach Bruce Cottrell said a potential No. 2 seed at the state tournament hung in the balance in that contest — one of the most important determining factors in state seeding is head-to-head results.
The Rockets and Hilltoppers were tied in that contest after the six singles matches, but the Hilltoppers swept the doubles competition to earn the victory.
For Los Alamos’ boys, they also outlasted a very tough Goddard squad 6-3, as well as knocking out Piedra Vista and Belen before falling to Academy 7-2.
Academy, the eight-time defending 4A champ, is the hands-down favorite to win again in 2011. Dominic Lucido at No. 3 singles and Eli Berg at No. 5 picked up wins, but Academy swept six of the other seven matches to win.
