Los Alamos' boys and girls basketball teams both started their seasons with victories Tuesday night.
The girls beat St. Michael's 70-61 while the boys took down Valencia 69-43.
Both teams jumped out to big leads early in their contests and never looked back. The girls led 10-0 less than a minute into their contest and took an 18-point lead into the fourth.
The boys, meanwhile, used their size to build a 11-2 first-quarter lead and won the next three quarters, as well, to keep pulling away.
