LA girls have tough contests this week
To make a run at the regular season District 2-4A championship, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team will need a sweep this week against a pair of tough customers.
Los Alamos will travel to Santa Fe, the former No. 1 team in the state, Wednesday night, then host the Española Valley Sundevils Saturday.
The Hilltoppers (13-10) trail both Santa Fe (20-2) and Española Valley (19-4) in the 2-4A standings, but can erase those deficits in a hurry with a pair of wins. The Hilltoppers lost to both teams in the first round of district play.
LA boys still seeking first 2-4A win
Following its loss Saturday night at Bernalillo, Los Alamos’ boys basketball team has just three games remaining to break into the District 2-4A win column.
Los Alamos fell at Bernalillo 65-49 Saturday night to drop to 0-5 in 2-4A play.
Its best chance for a win this district season might come tonight, however, when it hosts Santa Fe. Santa Fe (10-13) has won just one 2-4A game, that coming Jan. 26 when it topped Los Alamos in a rout, 70-47 at Toby Roybal Memorial Gymnasium.
