By The Staff

The Los Alamos Hilltoppers put a pair girls singles, a boys single and a girls doubles team into the quarterfinal round of the Class AAAA tennis playoffs Wednesday.

Both of Los Alamos' freshman girls, Colleen Fitzsimmons and Gillian Hsieh-Ratliff advanced to today's quarterfinal round of the AAAA state tournament, which is going on at the Jerry Cline Tennis Complex in Albuquerque.

Fitzsimmons came back from a set down to Deming's Ashley Marsh in Wednesday's first round of the state tournament. Fitzsimmons, who won the District 2AAAA championship Saturday, topping Hsieh-Ratliff in the final, dropped the first set to Marsh 6-7, but took the next two sets 6-4, 6-1.

She was scheduled to face a tough competitor this morning, however, in the form of Farmington's Kami Blackwood, the No. 2 seed in the girls draw. Results of that match weren't available at press time.

Hsieh-Ratliff, meanwhile, took a straight-set victory over sixth-seeded Mary Romero of Roswell. Hsieh-Ratliff advanced to this morning's contest against third-seeded Ali Rhodes of Piedra Vista by topping Romero 6-4, 6-2.

The other Hilltopper entry into the girls draw, Gina Stroud, fell to fifth-seeded Molly Merrion of Farmington, 6-2, 6-2.
