The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls tennis team downed the Las Vegas Robertson Cardinals in a dual contest Tuesday at home.
Los Alamos took four of six singles contests and swept the doubles contests against the Class 3A Cardinals to win 7-2.
Tuesday’s win comes on the heels of Los Alamos’ appearance at the Cheyenne Mountain Invitational in Colorado Springs, Colo., last weekend.
Colleen Fitzsimmons picked up a solid victory over Victoria Gomez in No. 2 singles and teamed up with Hannah Cunningham to trip up Robertson’s team of Kristen Herrera/Erika Baca in straight sets.
Astrid Hengartner, Jing Xie and Bridget Daughton were also winners for the Hilltoppers in singles competition Tuesday.
Last weekend, the Hilltoppers placed a pair of doubles teams into the top four at the Cheyenne Mountain tournament. Los Alamos was the only team from New Mexico taking part.
The Hilltoppers’ Nos. 1 and 3 doubles teams picked up first round wins at Cheyenne Mountain. Emily Funsten/Gwynn Cunningham, playing at No. 1 for the Hilltoppers, earned a 6-0, 6-3 win over Air Academy’s Maggie Juran/Cheyenne Pugin to open but couldn’t keep its momentum up, losing two straight contests after that.
