SANTA FE — Following top-two finishes at last weekend’s District 2-4A championship matches, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls tennis teams will move on to play in this week’s state Class 4A championship.
Los Alamos’ girls won their 14th straight District 2-4A title and earned the No. 2 overall seed in the team tournament, which commences Friday at the Jerry Cline Tennis Center in Albuquerque.
Meanwhile, the Hilltopper boys finished as the runner-up in the 2-4A tournament behind Santa Fe and were seeded No. 9 in the team tournament.
Prior to the team tournament, however, Los Alamos will take part in the singles and doubles championship draws. The singles and doubles contests will be Wednesday and Thursday, also at the Jerry Cline center.
Among the Hilltoppers’ entries into the tournament is the girls top doubles team of Madeline Margevicius and Gillian Hsieh-Ratliff. Margevicius/Hsieh-Ratliff topped teammates Colleeen Fitzsimmons/Susanna Lucido 6-2, 6-1 to claim a second consecutive district title Saturday.
The district championship match looked like it might be a tight one after Fitzsimmons/Lucido rallied from an early deficit in the first set.
