The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls tennis team didn’t get any players into the championship or consolation rounds of last weekend’s Los Alamos Invitational.
Although the Hilltopppers were the host of the tournament, play was at Capital High School in Santa Fe.
In team competition, the Farmington Scorpions were the big winners. The Scorpions, who had won three straight Class 4A titles before they were upset by Los Alamos in the final round of the state tournament last season, finished with 23 points, which placed them 4 points ahead of runner-up Santa Fe in the team standings.
In the top singles flight, Hilltopper Lauren Fugate advanced to the semifinals, knocking off teammate Lauryn Anaya in the quarterfinals 5-4 (2), 5-3 — all rounds but the semifinals and finals were short-set scoring.
Fugate, however, fell to eventual flight champion Brandee Fulgenzi of Santa Fe.
Fulgenzi swept Fugate in two sets, then went on to top No. 2 seed Sydney Schumacher of Farmington 6-1, 6-0.
In the No. 2 singles flight, Hilltopper Kiersten Temple advanced to the consolation final round, but was topped in her last match by Arielle Martinez.
