Tennis: Toppers bounced in 4A team semis

-A A +A

ALBUQUERQUE — Both matches came right down to the wire, but in both instances, the Los Alamos Hilltopper tennis teams found themselves on the short end.
Los Alamos’ boys and girls tennis teams were sent home a round earlier than expected Saturday. The Hilltopper girls fell to their arch-rivals, the Albuquerque Academy Chargers in the semifinal round of the Class 4A state team playoffs, while the Hilltopper boys were stung by the Farmington Scorpions.
It was a wild finish in both team matches, particularly the boys match, which came down to the final game in the final match.
Los Alamos’ boys were up 4-2 after six contests were complete against Farmington and needed just one of the remaining three singles matches to go their way. Unfortunately for the Hilltoppers, however, the Scorpions swept all three to advance and bounce the Hilltoppers out.
Both Los Alamos teams went into the tournament as the No. 2 seeds, but both were upset by the No. 3 seeds in the semis.
As expected, both top seeds in the boys and girls tournaments, Academy’s boys and Farmington’s girls, went on to clinch the 4A titles. Farmington had a closer-than-expected finish with Academy, taking that contest 5-4, while Academy’s boys won 5-3 over Farmington’s boys.
