The Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team ended up in the state Class AAAA playoff seeding right about where manager Roger Anaya figured it would be.
Eyeballing the potential Class AAAA bracket prior to Sunday’s seeding and selection meeting, Anaya guessed his team would end up somewhere between No. 12 and No. 14.
Los Alamos was seeded No. 13.
The AAAA playoffs start Thursday in Las Cruces. Games will be played at the Field of Dreams Complex and the Maag Complex in Las Cruces. The double-elimination tournament continues through Saturday.
The Hilltoppers finished as the District 2AAAA runners-up behind the Española Valley Sundevils, who were placed in the top half of the 16-team bracket, picking up a No. 8 seed.
