Teter has grand slam in win over Elks

Softball: LA jumps on Pojoaque early and often, wins in five innings, 16-0

By The Staff

POJOAQUE — Monika Teter was definitely on her game Tuesday.
Along with picking up the victory for the Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team from the mound, Teter blasted two home runs, including a grand slam in the fourth inning to lead the Hilltoppers to a lopsided win.
The Hilltoppers scored at least two runs in every inning as they thumped the host Pojoaque Elks 16-0 on the road in their final nondistrict contest before a critical District 2-4 opening doubleheader.
Los Alamos jumped all over Pojoaque, scoring six runs in the first two innings of the ballgame. Meanwhile, Pojoaque could do nothing against Teter, who struck out 9 of the first 10 batters she faced — she had an 11th strikeout as well but a passed ball allowed Analisa Martinez to get to first base.
Teter, Los Alamos’ ace, gave up just two hits in the ballgame and fanned 13 batters in five innings. Only one Pojoaque runner made it as far as second base.
Hilltopper manager Roger Anaya said that after his team went ahead comfortably, he considered pulling Teter, but the cold weather and the fact Teter’s mechanics looked good throughout the later innings changed his mind.
