It might take some time for the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys tennis team to see exactly how things might play out.
But with a good nucleus returning, Los Alamos is hoping things will play out well enough to make another run in the state tournament.
Los Alamos will be looking to make its third straight state Class AAAA final in 2009. It gets into the teeth of its schedule starting Saturday at Rio Rancho.
The spring preseason workouts, which started officially Feb. 2, have been generally good for the Hilltoppers.
