Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball standout Alex Kirk was named the Gatorade Player of the Year in New Mexico for the 2009-10 season.

The sports drink company made the announcement earlier today.

Kirk, the leading scorer and rebounder in Class AAAA this season, becomes the third Hilltopper boys basketball player to receive such honor and the second Hilltopper athlete this academic year to be so named. Kyle Pittman was Gatorade's top cross country runner for 2009.

Kirk helped take Los Alamos to the Class AAAA quarterfinals this past season.
