The Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team will be staying home for the first round of the state Class 4A playoffs.
Los Alamos will face the Centennial Hawks in the best-of-3 series starting Friday and continuing through Saturday at Bomber Field. Friday's game is scheduled for 5 p.m. Saturday's first game is set for 11 a.m. and, if necessary, the final game of the series will start at approximately 1 p.m.
The baseball playoff brackets were released Sunday evening. The Hilltoppers garnered a No. 7 seed for the tournament, which starts this weekend and continues next week when the venue shifts to Rio Rancho.
Hilltopper manager Mike Gill, who guided the team to a District 2-4A title this season, its sixth in a row, said his team landed right about where he expected it to land.
“I thought we’d end up anywhere between a No. 4 and a No. 7, because of our past history,” he said. “It didn’t surprise me one bit.”
Gill said Los Alamos will have to be prepared for Centennial. Centennial is a No. 10 seed, but has played some tough contests and will no doubt be ready for Los Alamos this weekend.
