Baseball > LA picks up No. 7 seed for 4A playoffs

By Mike Cote

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.
