LA moves up in state, national girls soccer rankings
The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team is among the top 25 teams in the nation, according to MaxPreps.com.
The Hilltoppers, prior to this week’s play, moved up 15 slots in the national rankings to No. 25 in the country and No. 2 in the state, behind Volcano Vista.
The big jump came after the Hilltoppers (now 8-1) captured the Albuquerque Academy Invitational this past weekend where they defeated the No. 1 team in the state, the Las Cruces Bulldawgs, convincingly in the opening round. Rankings were released Tuesday.
St. Pius X (5-4), the only team to beat Los Alamos this season, tumbled to No. 15 in the state. Only one other Class 4A team, Aztec, was ranked in the top 10 in New Mexico – MaxPreps doesn’t break down team rankings by state.
Volcano Vista (7-0) is ranked No. 9 in the nation. Perrysburg, Ohio, tops the national MaxPreps rankings.
