  • Tennis: LA teams cruise to wins over Tigers

    With the 2011 season quickly winding down, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls tennis teams are trying to take advantage of the time they have left.
    Los Alamos had scheduled nine duals meets in the span of eight days, including Tuesday’s contest against the Taos Tigers. Los Alamos had three straight days of home duals events set, but today’s contest against Las Vegas Robertson was a late scratch.
    While Los Alamos’ teams are juggling their lineups to keep people fresh and to allow for Saturday night’s Los Alamos High School prom, things have been going swimmingly during this stretch run.
