The District 2-4A baseball and softball seasons officially get going for Los Alamos Saturday and both in the same spot.
Both the Hilltopper teams will meet up for big doubleheaders against what has been their toughest district rival in recent years. Los Alamos will square off against the Bernalillo Spartans for twin twinbills in Bernalillo.
The Spartan softball team has been as good as any team in 4A so far. The Spartan baseball team has limped out of the gate but could turn its season around in a hurry with a good showing against Los Alamos.
In softball, Bernalillo has put up a nondistrict mark of 8-1, one of the best won-loss records in all of 4A, better than Artesia, Piedra Vista and St. Pius X, although all three of those teams have had stouter schedules than have the Spartans.
Bernalillo has put up runs in bunches this season. It has been held under 10 runs in just two games this season and already has three wins over Belen and a win over Albuquerque Academy. It also topped Española Valley 18-5 at a tournament in Grants, although that win doesn’t count in the 2-4A standings.
So far, Bernalillo has outscored its opponents 132-14 and has earned shutout wins in six of its nine contests. Its only loss was against Rio Rancho, which nipped Bernalillo 5-4 in Rio Rancho two weeks ago.
