The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team opens its season Tuesday night when it faces the St. Michael’s Horsemen.
Los Alamos and St. Michael’s will meet at 7 p.m. in Perez-Shelley Gymnasium in Santa Fe.
Tuesday night’s game will mark the debut of the new head coach for Los Alamos, Nestor Trujillo. Trujillo was hired last spring following the promotion of last year’s coach, Ann Stewart, to the school’s athletic director.
Trujillo comes to the Hilltoppers after being an assistant coach at the Hilltoppers’ main rival, Española Valley, as well as a basketball scout for Northern New Mexico College in Española.
Along with Trujillo, he will also bring in his daughter Ashlynn, into the Hilltopper fold.
