  • Baseball/softball: LA teams open district play Wednesday

    Both Los Alamos Hilltopper diamond crews will open their District 2AAAA seasons at home Wednesday.

    Wednesday marks the start of both the 2AAAA baseball and softball seasons for Los Alamos when both teams host the Taos Tigers. Both of Wednesday’s games are single contests.

    While neither Hilltopper team is heading into the 2AAAA season with particularly good win-loss marks, neither sport has produced a clear district front-runner heading in.

    Los Alamos’ softball team, for its part, has posted a record of 3-7 through the first month of the 2010 season.
