Trujillo fired up, ready to take over hoops program

-A A +A

Girls basketball > New coach was an assistant with the Sundevils last year

By Mike Cote

One of the hallmarks of northern New Mexico basketball has been an up-tempo, aggressive style of defense that leads to transition buckets.
That’s what Nestor Trujillo is hoping to infuse into the Los Alamos Hilltopper program.
Trujillo was named the head coach of the Hilltoppers today.
Most recently, Trujillo was an AAU coach and was a top assistant at Los Alamos’ archrival, Española Valley.
One of Trujillo’s duties at Española Valley was to scout the Sundevils’ opponents, including Los Alamos. He said that insight into the Hilltoppers’ program is going to help him out in his new position.
“Since last year, I actually made it to a lot of games,” he said. “I’ve scouted them a lot and I know quite a bit out them on paper.”
Because he was just hired, he said he is a little bit behind the curve — most programs around the state have extensive summer workout programs — but he said he’s hoping to have his assistant staff in place in short order and get with the returners to, if nothing else, go over his offensive and defensive terminology to have them up to speed by the time regular workouts get going.
Trujillo will be taking over for Ann Stewart, who resigned the post to take the athletic director’s position vacated in the spring.
