There will be a bit of a name change, but little else will change for the Los Alamos Hilltopper sports programs under the new proposal set forth by the New Mexico Activities Association.
However, the Santa Fe Demons are in for a major move and, very possibly, a humbling one.
Los Alamos, Capital, Bernalillo and Española Valley will remain in District 2, although it and most of the rest of the current Class 4A will move up to the proposed 5A classification.
Under the proposal released Wednesday by the NMAA, the governing body of most interscholastic sports in the state, Los Alamos will be in Class 5A for the block spanning 2014-2016.
However, there is little difference between the proposed Class 5A and the current Class 4A — Class B is becoming Class A and Classes A-5A are just adding a letter to their designations as opposed to there being a gigantic classification overhaul as there was in 2000.
The rumors the week before Thursday’s release were flying. Some potential proposals had Los Alamos in a district with the Four Corners teams, while others had Los Alamos, Albuquerque Academy and St. Pius X as possible district rivals.
